Brandeis University’s Rose Art Museum announced today that JJ PEET has been named the recipient of the 2016 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award.
PEET’s residency will occur at various locations across the Brandeis campus, including the Rose Art Museum’s new satellite gallery in downtown Waltham, Rosebud, this April and May. PEET, who is represented by On Stellar Rays in New York, is primarily known for his ceramics, but also works in a range of mediums, including installation, video, painting, and sculpture.
From April 15 through 17, PEET will be presenting a performance series, FIELD_WORK, at Brandeis’s Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts. It will feature pop-up video installations and artist interactions both on campus and at Rosebud. PEET will also contribute an edition of his project BARTER_STATION to the Rose Art Museum on April 15, for which he will “invite participants to barter for a PROXY_Cup in exchange for their assistance or participation in the realization of the final work,” according to a press release.
Additionally, new work by PEET will be on view at Rosebud from April 15 through June 5. During FIELD_WORK, Rosebud will also present Pysche_UP Animation, a 20-minute video collection of every stop-motion image PEET has ever created. His residency will conclude with a Rosebud show of new work created during his time at Brandeis.
