2013 Fellow: Fanny Gonella
Fanny Gonella, a Bonn-based curator, will research the artistic legacy of Robert Morris, focusing on the critical discourse his work generated around 1970s notions of queer identity, social constructs, and stereotypes. Gonella will use Morris’s 1974 self-portrait as a starting point to investigate historical and current gender issues, and plans to conduct a series of interviews with artists who worked directly with Morris, and with contemporary artists whose work continues his legacy. Further information on Gonella’s research and details on related events will be available on ICI’s website this winter 2013.
