Artpace provides artists with unparalleled resources and allows them to take time, take risks, and unveil new ideas. Each residency is composed of one artist from Texas, one from elsewhere in the United States, and one from abroad.
The Hudson (Show)Room–named for the facility’s former function as a Hudson automobile dealership–features exhibitions programmed by Artpace’s curatorial staff that showcase work reflecting the organization’s international scope.
Organized in Artpace’s busy Main Avenue windows and in other storefronts across the city, WindowWorks projects activate the art viewing experience from the sidewalk level.
