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-six-week residency to live and work at Artpace, conduct studio visits with regional artists, and write critical reviews to be published in digital and traditional media outlets.

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.

Artpace accepts submissions on a rolling basis. We welcome curators who are interested in being considered for the residency to send us their bio, CV, and/or portfolio for review by Artpace staff. Please submit these materials via email to: with the subject line “Curatorial Residency”.

If selected, you’ll be asked to submit a proposal about how you would utilize the residency.

Upcoming available dates for Curatorial Residency cycles are:

August 3 – September 14, 2021
November 30, 2021 – January 3, 2022
April 18 – May 15, 2022
August 22 – September 18, 2022
November 29, 2022 – January 3, 2023
