The ten-month Artist-in-Residence program for individual artists places specific emphasis on those whose work critically engages issues of race and ethnicity and works to advance their artistic ambitions and opportunities. During this program, resident artists have access to rehearsal, performance, and exhibition space at or near the Arts Incubator in Washington Park, as well as access to the academic and research resources of the University.
Artists selected for this program are at all stages in their careers and work in various media, including drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, film, video, new media, installation, performance, and music. Residents selected for the program will explore ways in which their work can impact campus, community, and city alike.
The Artists-in-Residence program, managed by Arts + Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture, is supported in part by a grant from The Joyce Foundation.
