FRACTURED ATLAS, New York City, as fiscal sponsor for REID FARRINGTON, Brooklyn, New York, received $12,000 in support of the development, production, and installation of The Return.  Fractured Atlas empowers artists, arts organizations, and other cultural sector stakeholders by eliminating practical barriers to artistic expression, so as to foster a more agile and resilient cultural ecosystem.  Reid Farrington is a new media artist, theater director, and stage designer.  The performance installation for which support was awarded will be presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and based on Tullio Lombardo’s Adam. This sculpture has undergone a decade-long, painstaking analysis and unprecedented restoration project by the Metropolitan Museum conservators, scholars, and scientists to restore the piece following its accidental destruction in 2002 when its plywood-base buckled.    The work blends live performance with digital characters to create an interactive story of the sculpture for visitors to the Museum.  Farrington envisions that visitors will initiate virtual reenactments and time-behind encounters between Tullio Lombardo, Museum conservators, and Adam.

ADKINS, ROMELLE, Minnesota, will travel to Boston, Massachusetts and Charleston, South Carolina to research personal histories, photographic archives, newspaper articles, and historic sites to inform and complete a draft of her novel. This research will inform the psyche of the characters in her novel about social/racial strife, the hiding of one’s identity, the search for one’s self worth and soul, the loss of family, betrayal and comradeship, the repercussions of slavery and the fight for freedom, and the fabric upon which their story is structured.
