May 18th 2022

Each year since 2012 Latitude has hosted 8-10 artists as a part of their Artist in Residency Program. On May 18th, we will celebrate the work of our first artist in residence – John Neff! The discussion will take place on Zoom and will feature founding member Walker Blackwell and founding volunteer Eileen Mueller.

About John Neff:

John Neff is a photographer living in Chicago, Illinois. He also works as a curator, most often at Chicago’s Iceberg Projects. John is a core faculty member in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Low-Residency MFA Program. Since 1999, John has exhibited in galleries and museums nationally  including Artists Space (New York), The Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago), The Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Renaissance Society (Chicago), and Donald Young Gallery (Chicago) among others.

About Walker Blackwell:

Walker Blackwell is a printmaker and works in Research and Development inventing technology for Cone Editions Press in Vermont where digital fine art printing started. He founded Black Point Editions in 2004—a collaborative print studio in Chicago—and later co-founded Latitude seeding it with the equipment from Black Point Editions. Walker, a Vermont-native, has worked with artists from all over the world and from all different art-practices since the early 2000s. Walker does “full stack” work in the arts from computer code, chemistry, hardware and logistics, to artistic collaboration, community organizing, direct print production, and workshop teaching.

About Eileen Mueller:

Eileen Mueller uses photography, moving image, and sculptural projections to image the unseen and unnameable forces that define a queered, non-linear ancestry. She studied in Baltimore at MICA and later received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has been awarded residencies at the Wassaic Project, ACRE, and the Institut für Alles Mögliche. Eileen has shown at IM ERSTEN in Vienna, Austria; Higher Pictures in New York, NY; the Museum of Contemporary Photography and Roots and Culture in Chicago, IL. Her work is published in Phantoms In the Dirt, The Great Refusal: Taking on New Queer Aesthetics, and MAKE #16 “Archive.” Eileen is one half of GURL DON’T BE DUMB and a co-founder of LATITUDE in Chicago. She earned her MFA at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
