The Jackman Goldwasser Residency at Hyde Park Art Center connects artists deeply with their own practice in the context of our vibrant, multifaceted community. Each year, our program invites international, national, and Chicago artists and curators to complement their mode of production with increased attention towards reflection, reconnection, and research to spark new ideas and considerations of local and global art practices.
The Residency takes place in our Guida Family Creative Wing and supports both local and visiting artists and curators, and by linking practitioners from different communities, the program aims to galvanize an international network of artists, curators, academics, arts administrators, educators, practitioners, and researchers who we invite to consider themselves peers and colleagues participating in a conversation that transcends national, cultural, and political boundaries
Residencies for Chicago based artists offer free studio space to make work, research new projects, access the Art Center’s broad international network of artists and resources, and connect with a dynamic public. Programs vary from seasonal to year-long residencies.
Founded with the intention to expand the dialogue between Chicago and the rest of the world, the residency invites visiting artists and curators from around the globe to become part of our community. These eight week residencies emphasize cross-cultural exchange and authentic dialogue and conversation surrounding international contemporary art practices.
In addition to connecting residents to the diverse range of resources, archives, libraries, artists and other practitioners in Chicago, the program builds relationships with like-minded arts organizations and resident programs around the world to expand our understanding of contemporary practice and create transformative opportunities for artists.
