Performing Artist Residency
Each Spring, Summer, and Fall Artpace selects one San Antonio-based performing artist for a residency. Launched in Spring 2018, the program provides resources to local performing artists and generates new audiences for the work created by our artists-in-residence. The performing artist will conduct a seasonal residency at Artpace to coincide with our International Artist-in-Residence program, and will be provided with exhibition space and a project budget. The residencies are designed to align with our Spring, Summer, and Fall artist-in-residence cycles to enable the performing artists to engage with our visual artists-in-residence and engage audiences with the work in dynamic ways. When the visual artists have completed their residency, the performing artist will activate the visual artists’ exhibition spaces by producing a minimum of four performances that relate to the work. The performing artists are encouraged to work with collaborators, build on existing work, and experiment with new ideas.
