Transparent Studio Kicks Off at Bose Pacia

After years as a commercial gallery, Bose Pacia is shifting their energy to the development of a non-profit organization.  As part of that shift, they are focusing on Bose Archives, a digital repository to preserve and promote contemporary South Asian art by accessing, interpreting and archiving visual art from the region, and transforming their ground floor retail space at 163 Plymouth to Transparent Studio, a rotating month-long artist studio residency program. From January through March, they are encouraging all of DUMBO to stop in and meet the artists – Jaret Vadera, Dannielle Tegeder and Ruby Chishti.

Bose Pacia gave us a sneak peak of what to expect at Transparent Studio:

  • Jaret Vadera, January 3 – February 2
    Transforming the space into and artist/alchemist’s lab, Jaret will create and complete new works of art each day during his residency.  The final installation will be an assemblage of his work created during the month.
  • Dannielle Tegeder, February 7 – March 1
    For her residency, Dannielle will facilitate four workshops consisting of invited artists, writers, poets, friends, affiliates of Bose Pacia and the public where the assembled group will work on collaborative projects around ideas inherent in drawing and abstraction.  Projects will be on display as they are created throughout the month.
  • Ruby Chishti, March 6 – April 5
    Using fashion as an appropriate arena to investigate the complexities of modern life, Ruby’s residency will be divided into two phases.  In the first phase, the artist will create a series of drawings and then make dresses to be transformed into sculpture and vice versa.  In the second phase, Ruby will take printed paper materials collected from her visits to art galleries and museums and transform them into “shoes.”   Video documenting Ruby’s travels from her home to these arts institutions supplement her installation.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 to 6 pm and Saturday 12 to 6. There will be open studio evenings on February 2, March 1, and April 5 from 6 to 8 pm. Details are available on the DUMBO Decoder. The artist will be in attendance, and the public is invited.
