Residency for Chicago Curator
The Radicle Curator Residency is a new initiative that advances independent curator
ial voices and expertise into the Art Center’s exhibitions and residency programs and the field-at-large. As part of the Jackman Goldwasser Residency Program, this 16-month residency supports emergent to mid-career Chicago-based curators by providing research, exhibition, and professional development opportunities. The selected curator will be rooted at the Art Center and invited to connect with its institutional networks, administration, and multigenerational community. A $10,000 stipend and exhibition budget are provided with the residency, which culminates with an engaging group exhibition at the Art Center that addresses pressing civic issues of our time.
Residency for Chicago Artist
The Art Center seeks to award yearlong residencies to eight Radicle Studio artists (two cohorts of four artists) for residencies to take place in 2024 and 2025. The radicle is the first part of a seedling to burst forth from a seed, rooting itself deeply into the earth. The goal of these residencies is to be rooted for a year at the Art Center through free sunlit studio space for artists to make work and research new projects, gain access to the Art Center’s broad international network of professionals and resources, and connect with a dynamic public.
