I'll be showing two hybrid works in a group show at the Museum of Sonoma County in Santa Rosa, CA. The exhibition includes a dozen artists, from 19th century California artists inspired by the natural beauty of the landscape, to contemporary artists who have broken from traditional perspectives and embraced new technologies to address important issues, and how the artist's relationship to landscape has evolved.

HANS HOFMANN'S FORMER ART SCHOOL RESIDENCY
Hofmann's former art school, in Provincetown, MA, May 17-21, 2020. The arts and culture events series and short-term artists residencies occur mid-May to mid-June each year in Provincetown, MA. I’ll be residing at the infamous Hawthorne barn, site of said former art school, and historic space where Jackson Pollock, Tennessee Williams, and Norman Mailer (among others) created and performed new work.
The barn has taken on a life of its own. Re-established as an intimate spring-time events space in 2014, it has since welcomed to its stage Monica Lewinsky, actor Alan Cummings, TV host and designer Isaac Mizrahi, playwright Jeremy O. Harris, photographer Ryan McGinley, and artist Lyle Ashton Harris. Musicians J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields. I'll be giving a lecture there as part of the residency.

QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT: A NEW SOURCE OF ARTISTIC CREATION
By Iñigo Sarriugarte GómezFeatured in ARBOR Ciencia, Pensamiento y Cultura Vol. 195, No. 794 (2019)
I was included in a Basque publication, in an article about the conjunction of art and science. Here is an excerpt:
“Many of Naomie Kremer’s projects involve the manipulation of reality, taking the viewer into virtual worlds through pictorial alteration, or through a symbiosis between elements, formats and techniques... As the artist says:
'The hybrid paintings that I started making in 2008 embody the unpredictable conjunction of two elements that result in a third form: a hybrid. I believe that serendipity is my unknown partner, in the way John Cage spoke of it in his composition process.' "
