Finnegan Shannon

Exhibitions and Festival Director

Wassaic is my home away from home. I always feel a special sense of ease and belonging when I step off the train at the Wassaic station. I lived in the hamlet for four summers working as the Wassaic Project’s Exhibition and Festival Director, and since then have been an artist-in-residence, exhibition artist, and editions artist. I feel lucky to have found a community of people who are thoughtful and rigorous in their approach to art but also kind, open, and fun-loving. I’m especially excited about my most recent project: a site-specific installation in Maxon Mills called Anti-Stairs Club Lounge, a space exclusively for visitors who cannot or choose not to go upstairs. This project is part of my recent body of work that aims to foster playful, creative, and generous accessibility strategies.
