Locks Gallery is proud to announce that gallery artists Nadia Hironaka and Matthew Suib have been awarded a prestigious John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for their work in video and mixed media installations. Guggenheim Fellowships are awarded to midcareer artists who have “already demonstrated exceptional creative ability in the arts.” The Continuous Moment, Part 1 is emblematic of the collaborative duo’s approach to weaving together discussions of image and film culture, cultural history, and their socio-political concerns. This piece from their 2014 exhibition at the gallery presented an alternative future where the utopian 1960s architecture group Superstudio’s Continuous Monument was physically realized; the work will be furthered into a second part with the aid of the Fellowship. Our congratulations to Hironaka and Suib.
