DiverseWorks’ Rachel Cook Among Warhol Fellowship Winners


Rachel Cook

Rachel Cook, associate curator of DiverseWorks in Houston, has been named as one of four national recipients of the Spring 2015 curatorial fellowship granted by the Andy Warhol Foundation. The foundation has been granting these fellowships since 2008 with funds of up to $50,000 per curator project, which ” …are designed to support travel, archival research, convening of colleagues, interviews and time to write.”

The fellowship category is Travel and Research, and Cook’s project will entail travel to New York and Africa to research Walker Evans’ photographs of African art and artifacts. In preparation for an exhibition around this research, she’ll also conduct studio visits in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, and Houston, and the project will culminate with discussions, shows and events at the Menil, MFAH, and DiverseWorks.
