Shandy Hall, Coxwold, April 2013.

information as material and the Laurence Sterne Trust proudly welcome Canadian artist Garry Neill Kennedy as artist-in-residence at Shandy Hall during mid-April 2013. The Halifax-based conceptual painter and famous educator will stay on site at the Hall, which is the former residence of the famed 18th century English writer Laurence Sterne and now functions as a museum dedicated to exploring the legacy of his work in the arts generally and in the context of the artefacts of his estate.

Kennedy was the President of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from 1967-1990. Taking the post at the age of 32, he became the youngest such appointee in the country. During his tenure he brought countless young visiting artists to the remote location, including Gerhard Richter, John Baldessari, Carl Andre, Sol Le Witt, Robert Smithson, Lucy Lippard, Joseph Beuys, Vito Acconci, Dan Graham, and Lawrence Weiner. His appointments included Walter König and Benjamin Buchloh. His extraordinary book, The Last Art School documenting that period was published last year by MIT Press.

Postings on other residencies at Shandy Hall co-organised by iam can be found in the archive of this blog.
