Agnes Bolt: Dealing
Exhibition: October 22 - November 26, 2011
Opening Reception: Saturday October 22, 6:00-8:30 pm
Project 4 presents “Dealing,” a solo exhibition featuring new work by Agnes Bolt. Bolt is an interdisciplinary artist who uses photography, video, installation, and intervention in her art practice.
Bolt’s most recent project playfully investigates complex relationships, as artist and art collector are contractually obliged to intervene in each other's lives for one week. A series of rules, exercises, and communication systems dictated the physical and virtual interactions between the two strangers with the intention of examining the consequences of the artists’ undeniable presence in the collector’s life. “Dealing,” features the works created for, during, and in response to these experiences.
Agnes Bolt was born in Poland and is currently living and working both in Brooklyn, NY and Pittsburgh, PA. Bolt is presently a MFA candidate at Carnegie Mellon, Pittsburgh, PA. Recently, Bolt’s work was projected at the Internet Pavilion, 54th Venice Biennale and shown at Microscope Gallery in New York. She is a recent recipient of the Heinz Foundation Artist Grant, the AW Mellon Grant, and a Fine Foundation Grant.
