Art in General, New York
Justyna Górowska is a performance artist whose work explores posthumanism and the boundaries between being and non-being. She received her MFA from the the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and is currently a PhD candidate at University of Arts in Poznań. Since 2014, she has worked with Lokal 30 Gallery in Warsaw and she is winner of the Samsung Art Master Contest. Her projects have most recently been presented at the National Gallery in Jakarta, Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, among many other exhibitions internationally. Górowska 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.
