Recipient of Guggenheim Fellowship 2023!
We are delighted to announce that Andrea Geyer has been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in the field of Fine Arts.
Each year, the Guggenheim Foundation awards approximately 175 fellowships to individuals making their mark in the social sciences, the natural sciences, the humanities, and the creative arts. Some notable Fellows in art include Tod Papageorge, Robert Adams, Mitch Epstein and Susan Meiselas.
Geyer’s critically-oriented work ranges across media, incorporating text, photography, painting, sculpture, video, and performance. It explores the complex politics of lived time, its absence and presence in the context of specific social and political situations, cultural institutions, and historical events. From her early investigations into notions of citizenship, and the role of photography in the colonization of North America, to more recent research into the structures that render women’s central contributions to modernism invisible, Geyer’s work continuously seeks to create spaces of critical, collective reflection on the politics of histories that allow for the formation of new memories of that which is marginalized or obscured. Uniting all of Geyer’s ambitious work is the belief that “art should be a site to offer the possibility of re-orientation(s) towards a current moment.”
