Art Camp is a homesome virtual art residency and gathering, an alternative to our many missing social events. Womxn and underrepresented artists investigate the possibilities of creating and inhabiting a communal place with care, that is accessible both on a browser and in virtual reality. The residency accumulates in the Show & Tell on the last Sundays of every second month.
ABOUT our March Cohort:
As part of her Parent Artist Residency, Judit Navratil (founder of Art Camp) invited the extended community of Kala Art Institute to think about online art gatherings, and to create a communal social VR space together. Show & Tell starts in this common place, then each artist will give a 20 min tour in their virtual "studios" that they’ve built during their residency.
Quinn Keck is a multidisciplinary artist working across traditional printmaking, painting, and digital mediums. Trained in painting and printmaking, Quinn also combines writing and code in their work to create dialogues on the human experience. Instead of portraying the physical form of people, places, and themselves, Quinn portrays their inner layers and dimensions through abstractions. Their work has been displayed across the United States in both solo and group exhibitions. They hold a Bachelor's in Studio Art and Human Rights from Hampshire College and a Masters of Data Science from the University of San Francisco.
