2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1,500

Kay was selected by the Women's Studio Workshop for a residency at KKV Grafik Studio in Malmö, Sweden this July. During the month-long residency, Kay will interview refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, and create a series of life-sized, drawn, painted, and screen-printed installations addressing themes of home, loss, and displacement. The WOO grant will cover Kay's travel, accommodations and art supplies during her time in Sweden. 

As part of the residency, Kay will offer free art classes through Kontrapunkt, an organization that provides assistance and advocacy for refugees throughout Sweden. Through the classes, she hopes to build relationships with people that are interested in sharing their experiences, and to create work inspired by their stories. Select installations from the residency will be on view at the American Swedish Heritage Museum in South Philadelphia during their 2018-19 season.
