Art in General, New York
Questioning power structures, Adéla Součková develops a complex and critical pictorial language that overlaps from drawing to performance, installation, video, poetry and sound collaborations. Součková exhibits widely across Europe and frequently teaches workshops at universities and public galleries. She holds degrees from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, Czech Republic and the Academy of Fine Arts Dresden, Germany, where she received the Deutsch-Tschechischer Zukunftsfonds scholarship. Součková is in residence at Art in General from June–September 2017 through the support of FUTURA and the International Visegrad Fund.
Art in General was founded in 1981 and supports the production of new work by local and international artists primarily through its New Commissions Program and its International Collaborations program. Art in General also produces an annual symposium What Now? on critical and timely issues in artistic and curatorial practice.
Art in General’s Residency Program, presented as part of the International Collaborations Program, provides artists and curators from abroad with the opportunity to conduct research and create work in a new context and to meet and interact with art communities and audiences in New York City. This national and international Residency Program is uniquely focused in exposing artistic and creative processes, in initiating and promoting the dialogue between artists and the public, and in generating a better informed and recurring audience for contemporary art.
General Support of Art in General is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services; the New York State Council on the Arts with support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; the Toby D. Lewis Donor Advised Fund of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland; and by individuals. This program is also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
