RELATED EVENTS

RESIDENCY PROJECT

This collaboration features two artists, two organizations and two cities. It exposes artists already working with socially engaged, site-specific practices to new communities with the goal of expanding their artistic practice in the context of a city new to them. Similarly sized, both Houston and Chicago provide a dynamic urban space, rich with artistic engagement. Through this residency exchange, Project Row Houses and Hyde Park Art Center aim to provide an opportunity for artists to research localized ways of thinking and creating in a different city to enhance their practices at home.
