The New York Art Residency & Studios (NARS) Foundation is pleased to present Layers of Response, an exhibition celebrating the new work and associated exchange of the NARS Residency Artists created during the past six months. The exhibition features selections from the work of 2014 Season III & IV Residency Artists: Jennifer Grimyser, Mariana Jandova & Tony Cran, Chaegang Jeon, Sandra Lapage, Jimmy Nuttall, Lisa O’Donnell, Carolina Paz, Carlos Pileggi, Karolina Sulich, Denise Treizman, and Claudia Weber.

During the organization of this exhibition, a dialogue emerged around the idea of collaboration and participation in art practice and exhibition. What happens, if anything, when a group of artists work in the studio together, participate in communal events, and form bonds over the course of a three to six month period? Does that interaction have an effect on the artists’ practice? At NARS, the residency program is studio and community based and is rooted in the belief that bringing together a group of artists creates a dialogue through which new work can be developed and strengthened. The work produced may not be visually similar or have a unified theme, but it is built through an ongoing conversation and engagement among the artists. The residency allows artists of different ages and from different backgrounds and nationalities to form relationships and to layer those ties through their personal history and artistic practice, creating Layers of Response.
