As part of Joan Mitchell Foundation's ongoing collaboration with Voices of Contemporary Art (VoCA), please join us on Thursday, September 14, when artist Gwen Fabricant will sit down with VoCA Program Committee Member Jennifer Hickey to discuss her life, work, and artistic legacy. 

Gwen has been supported by the Foundation in a number of ways, as a grant recipient, an Artist-in-Residence at the Joan Mitchell Center, and as a Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) Artist. The CALL/VoCA programs aim to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work. 

"CALL enabled me to cross the divide into the digital age. This opened new ways for me to communicate with people and institutions. In order to create this archive, we had to bring all the past work out into the open... and that, surprisingly, changed the way I see the whole course of my work."    — Gwen Fabricant
