Current Artist in Residency
Juliette Choné is a French visual artist who moved to the Bay area in 2015. Choné studied Art History in Strasbourg and then went to study in Paris where she got an Art Professions Diploma in stained glass and a Visual Art Post-graduate degree at the University Panthéon-Sorbonne. As an expert in stained-glass restoration Choné worked for several years on famous French monuments like Chartres Cathedral or Sainte-Chapelle in Paris. Choné devotes her time between creating art, exhibiting and teaching. Since moving to the US, she continues to exhibit abroad and in the United States.
Choné’s current work questions the boundaries between animal and human, nature and culture. Philosophical at first, her interest in animals has become also political, as well as ethical. She loves fragile material especially paper. The line of drawing or engraving traces the continuity between thought and creation, between the cerebral and the bestial.
Her residency project entitled “Etant donnés, Three Little Pigs” questions the place of animals, especially pigs, in the food industry.
About our Artist in Residency Program
Mission Gráfica’s Artist in Residency Program is designed to provide a creative environment for emerging and mid-career artists. Applicants should hold a BA, BFA, MFA or life equivalency representing an established foundation of knowledge and body of work in printmaking.
The residency will be from one to 4 months depending on the needs of the artist and the availability of the studio. Artists must have a clear objective for the time of their residency. Mission Gráfica’s facilities support several printmaking techniques, including intaglio, monoprint, relief, and screen-print.
Residents will be required to teach one workshop and to donate 5 prints to the MCCLA Archive. Additional teaching opportunities may be available but not required. Artists will have free use of all printmaking studio equipment and storage for their supplies.
Hours of the studio are Tuesday to Friday from 10:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
Applications should include a letter of intent, resume, and 10 to 15 piece portfolio in digital format along with two recent letters of recommendation.
