Performance Art Residency

Each Spring, Summer, and Fall Artpace selects one San Antonio-based performance artist for a residency. Launched in Spring 2018, the program provides resources to local performance artists and generates new audiences for the work created by our artists-in-residence. The performance artist will conduct a seasonal residency at Artpace to coincide with our International Artist-in-Residence program, and will be provided with exhibition space and a project budget. The residencies are designed to align with our Spring, Summer, and Fall artist-in-residence cycles to enable the performance artists to engage with our visual artists-in-residence and engage audiences with the work in dynamic ways. When the visual artists have completed their residency, the performance artist will activate the visual artists’ exhibition spaces by producing performances that relate to the exhibition. The performance artists are encouraged to work with collaborators, build on existing work, and experiment with new ideas.
