Artist Residency Capstone: Sarah Evenson, Ash Goh, & Zosha Warpeha

Aug 29, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

The Anderson Center at Tower View presents an Artist Residency Capstone with visual artist Sarah Evenson, filmmaker Ash Goh Hua, and music creator Zosha Warpeha on Tuesday, August 29, 2023 at 7 p.m. in the Tower View Barn. Living and working in Red Wing through the month of August as part of the Anderson Center’s Early Career Artist Residency Program, Sarah, Ash, and Zosha will share works-in-progress and engage participants in dialog around their artistic practices.

There is no admission fee and all are welcome. Another Capstone event with artists-in-residence Donte Collins & AriDy Nox is scheduled for Thursday, August 24.

Sarah Evenson (they/them) is a transgender printmaker, illustrator, book artist, and zinemaker whose colorful work explores queerness as a natural human state worthy of exploration, documentation, & celebration. Sarah holds a BFA in printmaking from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and was a 2019–2021 fellow at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, as well as a resident in the 2021 Emerging Artist Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. Their artist books and zines are held in collections across the English-speaking world and beyond.

During their time as a resident at Anderson Center, Sarah is creating a series of interrelated screen-printed images, zines, animations, and installations that record their transition through gender-affirming care and rejoice in the new relationship between their body and sense of self this care has made possible. At the Capstone, Sarah will screen animations of their screenprinting work and offer an artist talk.

Ash Goh Hua (she/they) is a filmmaker from Singapore, based in New York. They tell political stories personally through experimental leaning documentaries, challenging dominant ideologies in order to imagine possibilities of other worlds. Ash’s films have screened and won awards at film festivals internationally, and have been distributed by PBS, The New Yorker and Third World Newsreel. They were named one of the 25 New Faces of Film by Filmmaker Magazine in 2022.

Ash is currently expanding their creative capacity by venturing into the narrative world. At Anderson Center they are working on a script, vision board and pitch deck for a short narrative film about immigration and family.

Originally from Minnesota and currently based in Brooklyn, NY, Zosha Warpeha (she/her) is a composer-performer working in a meditative space at the intersection of contemporary improvisation and folk traditions. She performs primarily on Hardanger d’amore, a sympathetic-stringed instrument closely related to the Norwegian Hardanger fiddle, as well as five-string violin. Her current acoustic and electro-acoustic work is informed by the cyclical forms, rhythmic elasticity, and the physical momentum of Nordic folk music.

During her Anderson Center residency, Zosha is composing a site-specific body of work for Hardanger d’amore, voice, and resonant space, utilizing two acoustically resonant structures at Tower View: the silo and the historic water tower.
