Crit Night is a seasonal series, where current and past Pioneer Works artists-in-residence share works in progress during an intimate evening focused around experimentation and discourse.

Visual Arts Resident Jenny Perlin will share films from her explorations of subterranean bunkers across America.

Visual Arts Resident Maia Chao will host a participatory open-mic reading of acceptance and rejection letters. Guests will be invited to read aloud their own acceptance/rejection letters, emails, texts, or just listen. Her hope for this exercise is to generate a therapeutic moment of catharsis, recognition of invisible labor, some entertainment, a space for solidarity, and a celebration of what could have been. This idea stems from her interest in the myth of the model minority, the gig economy, and the precarity of the “emerging artist,” as well as how we orient ourselves in relation to institutional validation.

Quenton Stuckey and collaborators will share songs from an album recorded during his Pioneer Works Music Residency in October 2019.
