Molly Dilworth
Visual Arts Residency

Molly Dilworth is a Brooklyn-based artist who views her creative practice as a form of research. Using data from a specific site as a structure, she gives form to things that invisibly motivate our actions. Throughout her practice, Dilworth has partnered with green building community organizations, climate change activists, arts organizations and government agencies to make public art pieces that address our relationship to history, nature and technology. Her work was part of Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good in the U.S. Pavilion at the 13th International Venice Architecture Biennale. In the spring of 2013 she installed a permanent exterior painting for the Garden at The James Hotel in Lower Manhattan. At Pioneer Works, she created a collage installation of banners and flags made from user submitted photographs. The work uses traditional folk art techniques to address our culture’s growing estrangement from the fruits of our labor. Molly Dilworth’s residency at Pioneer Works was in partnership with Recess.
