Core Program: Call for Applications

The Core Program
Artist and Critical Studies Residencies

Call for Applications


Deadline: April 1, 2009

The Core Program awards artist and critical studies residencies to highly motivated, emerging visual artists and critical writers who have completed their academic training but have not yet fully developed a professional career.

About the program

Established in 1982 within the Glassell School of Art of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Core artist residencies encourage intensive and innovative studio practice as well as the elaboration of an intellectual framework to understand that practice. In 1998, the Core critical studies residencies were established to provide an opportunity for writers to pursue independent curatorial and writing projects and to promote the discourse necessary for both artists and critics to sustain their practices. Throughout the year, residents engage in ongoing dialogue with each other and meet with pre-eminent artists, critics, curators and art historians.

Program specifics

Each resident is provided with a stipend, health insurance, and private studio/office space. The residency term is nine months, from September to May, and is renewable for a second term.
