Curatorial Residency

Connecting Texas artists with curators from around the world.

What is the Artpace Curatorial Residency Program?

Building on the established International Artist-in-Residence Program, the Curatorial Residency connects Texas artists with curators from around the world. Artpace invites two curators each year for a two-to-three week residency to live and work at Artpace, conduct studio visits with artists on the Texas Open Call database and the wider artist community.

Selected curatorial residents tell the story of the Texas arts community as they build professional relationships with regional artists who often don’t have access to art critics, leading curators, and promotional opportunities. The curatorial residents also utilize their time to build their writing portfolios with new articles, which provide critical perspective and bring national and international attention to regional artists. This work is shared through traditional and non-traditional media. Additionally, curatorial residents have the opportunity to propose a future exhibition at Artpace.

If selected, you’ll be asked to provide a written summary of your experiences and documentation of studio visits.
