Park McArthur Named a 2024 Guggenheim Fellow

Park McArthur, a conceptual artist and the Tepper Family Endowed Chair in Visual Arts, has been named a 2024 Guggenheim Fellow in the field of fine arts.

McArthur will use her Guggenheim fellowship to complete projects opening in spring 2025 in Austria and Germany.

“…My desire is to make an exhibition distributed across forms and artistic traditions such that spending time with digital and printed catalog is a primary means of attending the shows, too,” she said. “This comes from an ongoing curiosity about how I’ve been deeply influenced by artworks I’ve never personally experienced.”

The proposed works are still in the design and creative stages, she said, adding “the goal is to have artworks exist as sound, text, and sculptures.”

McArthur, along with two other Rutgers–New Brunswick professors, were among 188 fellows selected this year from a pool of 3,000 across 52 disciplines.

“By earning the Guggenheim Fellowship, these outstanding faculty members strengthen our Rutgers-New Brunswick community by giving students access to new horizons in scholarship and the creation of new knowledge,” Rutgers University–New Brunswick Chancellor Francine Conway said. “Their accomplishment uplifts us collectively and proves that we truly are stronger together.”
