The Armory Show and Tell: Eileen Cowin

As part of The Armory Show and Tell artist Eileen Cowin will presented:

“My presentation/performance/ event will combine my continuing investigation of narrative with my love of storytelling and film. I will be filming this performance of ‘readings’ and re-enactments.”

Eileen Cowin’s work has been presented in over 30 solo exhibitions and in more than 165 group exhibitions. Her mid-career survey show Still (and all) was mounted at Armory in 2000. Cowin has received numerous awards, among them a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a commission from the Public Art Fund in New York, an Individual Artist Grant from the City of Los Angeles, an Artist’s Fellowship in New Genres from the California Community Arts Foundation, and a California Community Foundation Fellowship for Visual Artists. Her work has been exhibited at The J. Paul Getty Museum and she recently completed two works for the Los Angeles International Airport.




About The Armory Show and Tell
The Armory Show and Tell coincides with the launch of the Armory’s 25th season of exhibition programs as well as the 100th anniversary of the 1913 Armory Show, the first exhibition of modern art in the US. For the past 25 years, Armory Center for the Arts has distinguished itself through its commitment to the notion of artist as educator. Today, The Armory Show and Tell has invited current and former Armory teaching artists and audiences to interrogate that idea; it centers around daily public presentations by 35 of more than 300 current and former Armory teaching artists who responded to an invitation to “perform your practice” in the Armory’s Caldwell Gallery. These artists have been further invited to leave behind a remnant of or detritus from their events, to be incorporated into an exhibition that expands over its 11-week duration.
