Program Description

The Currier Museum of Art invites applications for its Artist-in-Residence Program. Now in its third year, the program will award up to two residencies between fall 2023 and spring 2024. The awards will provide support for self-identified emerging artists focused on social practice. Residencies may be for a period of 6 to 12 weeks between mid-October 2023 and mid-March 2024. The residency program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting audiences with art and creative thinking. This open call privileges social practice artists who share the goal of impacting people through the transformative power of art. Applicants must demonstrate a history of social engagement in their artmaking practice and production. Successful applicants will develop an innovative project with tangible outcomes that align with the tenets of their own practice, the mission of the museum, and the needs of the community with whom they will collaborate.
