Curatorial Residency

What is the Artpace Curator-in-Residence Program?

Building on the established International Artist-in-Residence program, the Curatorial Residency connects South Texas artists with curators from around the world. Artpace will invite one curator each year for a 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 will tell the story of South Texas as they build professional relationships with regional artists that often don’t have access to art critics, leading curators, and promotional opportunities. The curatorial resident will also utilize their time to build their writing portfolio with new articles and blog posts, providing new critical perspective and bringing national and international attention to regional artists. This work will be shared through traditional and non-traditional media. Additionally, curatorial residents will have the opportunity to propose a future exhibition at Artpace.

This pilot program began in Summer 2017. For more information, please contact Artpace at 210.212.4900 or
