Residency Unlimited


Welcome to our newly formatted DIALOGUES platform of published critical and theoretical content on the evolving field of art residencies. By collecting a variety of perspectives including yours we give voice to:

Academic Research: we interview scholars investigating art residencies from a theoretical standpoint.
Practices: we include conversations with artists, curators and art managers engaged in developing non conventional artist residencies that serve as a critical catalyst.
Panels: we provide a content summary of selected panels and conferences on art residencies that are happening in New York City and internationally.

DIALOGUES is managed by curatorial consultant and research fellow Giorgia Gandolfini. Please contact us with your contributions.
