Abstract or Description

Fogo Island Arts and Art Metropole are pleased to announce that Marion Coutts has been selected to participate in The Islands, a two-part residency that aims to encourage arts writing and criticism in contemporary art.

The Islands invites emerging and established arts writers and artists with a writing practice to think about the various roles of writing in the arts across two unique locations.

Coutts will spend a month on Fogo Island as part of Fogo Island Arts’ residency program, followed by two weeks on Toronto Island at Artscape Gibraltar Point. The residency will culminate in a small publication published and distributed by Art Metropole.

The jury for this third iteration of the program included artist Nadia Belerique; Michael Maranda, ex-artist and Assistant Curator, Art Gallery of York University; Alexandra McIntosh, Director of Programs and Exhibitions, Fogo Island Arts; and Danielle St-Amour, Director of Art Metropole.

The Islands is a residency partnership conceived and organized by Art Metropole and Fogo Island Arts, with support from Artscape Gibraltar Point, Toronto.
