Visual Arts Residency
Ernesto Pujol is a site-specific public performance artist and social choreographer. During the 1990s, Pujol became known for site-specific ephemeral installation projects addressing individual and collective memory and gender. More recently, his performance work has addressed pressing ecological issues, war, loss, and mourning. He has been the recipient of fellowships from the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Cintas Foundation, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and Art Matters. At Pioneer Works, Pujol will develop and rehearse a 24 hour long piece—Time After Us—for Crossing the Line, the annual fall festival presented by Alliance Française.
