Genesis Belanger
Visual Arts Residency

Genesis Belanger is a Brooklyn-based sculptor. She is currently working in ceramics hand building handsome jokes about the absurdity of the patriarchy in a material that lasts forever. The work engages in a conversation about the present and its relationship to the past, a past that most of us would not have had the privilege to shape. Belanger received her BFA from the school of the art institute of Chicago and her MFA at CUNY, Hunter College. Selected exhibitions include “Scarlet Street,” Lucien Terras, NY; “Frida Smoked,” Invisible-Exports, NY; and “Happiness and Other Forms of Self-Delusion,” Pioneer Works, NY, all 2016. Belanger was a recipient of a 2016 Rema Hort Mann Emerging Artist Grant.
