The Directors authorized a grant of $12,000 to ILAND, New York City, in support of the iLAB Artist-in-Residence Program. Founded in 2004 by choreographer Jennifer Monson, iLAND investigates the power of dance to illuminate a kinetic understanding of the world. It is a dance research organization with a fundamental commitment to environmental sustainability as it relates to art and the urban context, and cultivates cross-disciplinary research. iLAB supports the creative collaborative process between movement-based artists and scientists, environmentalists, landscape architects and others. The goals of the residency program are to encourage emerging/innovative artists, to invigorate and re-imagine relationships between the public and urban environment through kinetic experience; to engage artists and practitioners across the disciplines of dance, art and the ecology of physical interrelationships; and to support the development of process over product such that process is itself a product for artistic and public action.
