Sara Krajewski, director of Inova, a contemporary art venue at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, has won a prestigious fellowship from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Krajewski is one of two curators in the nation to be given the award.
The fellowship is designed to support research and travel toward the development of an exhibition. The award is $31,500.
Krajewski plans to seek out artists who work in hybrid forms, who disregard specific mediums and erase the boundaries between making, exhibiting and performing art, occupying a "gray area outside of conventional genre distinctions," according to a statement from the Peck School of the Arts at UWM. The resulting artworks are "performed environments" that create unusual relationships between artist, audience, image, object and venue, the statements notes.
Krajewski will travel nationally and internationally to do her research.
