Guggenheim Fellowship

In May 2016, Chico MacMurtrie was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship in Fine Arts. During the official Guggenheim Fellowship period in 2017, MacMurtrie/ARW will dedicate their efforts to the development of the Border Crossers project. 

Border Crossers comprise a series of lightweight robotic sculptures that poetically explore the notion of borders and boundary conditions. Their choreographed performance, originating on both sides of the border, would stage a symbolic connection and reinforce the hope for peace in locations where reconciliation is thought to be impossible.
