Kelley Meister ’08, MFA, has been selected by the Jerome Foundation to participate in a creative residency at the Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France.

This program is an invitational grant program providing Jerome-funded artists from multiple disciplines with creative residencies. The purpose of the program is to provide time and space for artists to think, create, and reflect; to learn from a community of artists and scholars-in-residence; and to connect with resources of the Aix-Marseille-Provence area.

During Meister’s Camargo residency, ze will spend time synthesizing hir research and developing new work as part of the multi-part project Last Vacation Before the End of the World. Utilizing the research from hir Jerome Travel and Study trip to nuclear test sites and waste depositories in Nevada and New Mexico last spring, this new work is a multimedia response to our ongoing nuclear arsenal, questions of containment and disposal of nuclear waste, and the tourism industry that surrounds our nuclear production and history. A site visit to France’s International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor nearby will be a part of hir residency at Camargo.
