Art in General, New York
Gábor Kristóf’s practice examines the overlap between traditional image-making techniques and the possibilities of industrial production. He is interested in a rethinking of the changing nature, role, context and notion of the image. He studied at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest and Chelsea College of Art and Design in London. Kristóf is a member of the Studio of Young Artists Association and his work has been shown widely across Europe. Kristóf is in residence at Art in General from June–September 2017 through the support of FUTURA and the International Visegrad Fund.
Art in General was founded in 1981 and supports the production of new work by local and international artists primarily through its New Commissions Program and its International Collaborations program. Art in General also produces an annual symposium What Now? on critical and timely issues in artistic and curatorial practice.
Art in General’s Residency Program, presented as part of the International Collaborations Program, provides artists and curators from abroad with the opportunity to conduct research and create work in a new context and to meet and interact with art communities and audiences in New York City. This national and international Residency Program is uniquely focused in exposing artistic and creative processes, in initiating and promoting the dialogue between artists and the public, and in generating a better informed and recurring audience for contemporary art.
General Support of Art in General is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services; the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the Toby D. Lewis Donor Advised Fund of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland; and by individuals. This program is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
