The Color Curtain and the Promise of Bandung will bring together historical and contemporary artwork that engages with the Non-Aligned Movement, a group of states not formally aligned with any major power bloc that grew out of a historic 1955 conference in Bandung, Indonesia. Working with an international curatorial team, Pirotte will visit Singapore, Bangladesh, Beirut, Ghana, New York, and Paris among other locations as part of his research.
“The Warhol Foundation aims to support the full range of artistic activity in America—from exhibitions at major museums to neighborhood projects by artist collectives. Arts writers, through the range and specialization of their individual interests, touch upon all of this activity—illuminating and interrogating it and bringing it into conversation with the public. Support for artists is not complete without support for the circulation and serious consideration of their ideas. The Arts Writers Grant program keeps artists at the center of cultural dialogue and debate—in our opinion, right where they belong.”
