Fridman Gallery is pleased to announce the 2023 Artist Residency program at the gallery’s location in Beacon, NY.

Reflecting Fridman Gallery’s commitment to representing interdisciplinary artists from around the world and fostering research-based experimental art practices, the residency will provide an opportunity for international artists to spend several months living and working in New York’s Hudson Valley region. The second artist-in-residence will be Alina Grasmann from Germany, whose residency in the spring of 2022 will culminate in a solo exhibition at Fridman Gallery’s Beacon location. Additional artists will be selected by invitation. The residency program will strive to inspire the visiting artists and the local community through events such as artist talks and open studios.


Adelisa Selimbašić (Karlsruhe (DEU) 1996. Lives and works in Milan) is an Italian-Bosnian artist, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice. Within her works she attempts an unconventional perception of the body, leading the viewer to accept her feminine but not necessarily provocative sensuality (without
necessarily being the subject of sexual fantasies) leading to recognize that the only perfect body that exists be your own. A normal body, with cellulite, stretch marks, wide hips and with all its scars is an authentic and alive body. The use made of the body in communications leads to a very topical question on the constant construction of a cultural representation of the feminine. Society is deeply
disturbed by the body.
