Q&A with Regine Basha
I’ve seen a lot of residency programs, and not to be competitive about it, but I think that it’s one of the few that is really a space for new work to be produced. It’s not a residency program where you retreat into an open process without an exhibition at the end—just quiet time to study and work—which itself is great, but Artpace still retains the position of one of the few and one of the best that has produced new work and publications with really seminal artists like Felix Gonzalez-Torres, who was the first resident. We have to look back on that and understand that from the beginning Linda Pace and Laurence Miller created a very high standard and were very much aware that the local art community had to be part of the conversation. I think that’s a very unique trait, which will continue. That’s something I believe in completely.
