Talent | Agency brokers symbiotic resource exchange between artists and art lovers. One tentacle is facilitating residencies for emerging visual artists that infuse underutilized spaces with infectious creative energy. Recently, Talent | Agency partnered with CBRE/Boulous, Property Management, which generously provided a site-specific installation space at 475 Fore Street, in Portland, Maine from 2012-2013.
Our first artist-in-residence was Rachel Manley, pictured above at work on her installation "Garden Skyline," on Fore Street. Many more images can be viewed here.
Talent | Agency most recently hosted IlaSahai Prouty, whose installation "Goldilocks Saves the World" was on view during the Winter of 2013, and is visible in the following images.
