CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: DCASE Studio Artist & Residency Program

DCASE announces the Chicago Cultural Center Studio Artist and Curatorial Residency Program for professional and emerging Chicago-based visual artists and curators. The program aims to support Chicago’s visual artists and curators in their creative process and to increase the diversity of expression and representation in the larger artistic community in Chicago.

Through a competitive review process, DCASE will award six Studio Artist in Residency opportunities and two Curatorial Fellowships to diverse Chicago-based artists and curators over 18 years of age, at all career levels (emerging, mid-career, mature) in the visual arts. The program seeks to support artists and curators who demonstrate a level of commitment to their work that indicates promise, and/or those who are on the brink of career advancement. This is achieved through providing a studio, financial support, administrative support of DCASE staff and the opportunity to engage with the public in formal and informal settings throughout the residency period, as well as through the development of a cohort of artists and curators.

This program is supported through a generous grant from The Joyce Foundation.

Beginning at 9am CST on Friday, July 11, 2014, the online Studio Artist and Curatorial Residency Program application will be available here:

Deadline for submission is July 31, 2014
