Launched in 2020, the Artis Curatorial Residency Program provides mid-career curators and writers an opportunity to spend three months at a partner residency to develop research and curatorial projects that engage with the work of artists from Israel and related discourse. Participants conduct studio visits and meetings with arts professionals from Israel, while immersed in an international arts community at the host residency, and receive support to develop their professional practice, experiment with new ideas, and foster collaboration.
At the end of the residency, the participant develops a final project, which is shared publicly and may take the form of an exhibition proposal, essay, online publication, or digital project that brings the work of artists from Israel into dialogue with international artists. The residency is fully funded, and the participant receives an honorarium for the duration of the residency as well as for the development of the final project.
Participants are selected through an annual open call to participate in the Curatorial Residency Program. 2021 curators-in-residence will be announced in the spring of 2021. The next open call will be announced in spring 2022 for residencies that take place in 2022.
