Artists Programs

CSRPC’s long-standing artists-in-residence program evolved into an on-going collaboration with the University’s Arts + Public Life Initiative (APL). Since 2011, the CSRPC and APL have supported individual artists through the Artists-in-Residence program, open to Chicago-based artists and groups whose work explores issues of race, politics and culture. This program seeks to advance the opportunities available to artists who are underrepresented in the Chicago and national arts scenes.


Artists-in-Residence Program

Arts + Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics & Culture annually support a 10-month research - and project-based residency for outstanding Chicago-based, non-matriculating artists and collaboratives.

The residency is for mid-career artists working in various media and disciplines, 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.
