The Core Program awards residencies to highly motivated, exceptional visual artists and critical writers who have completed their undergraduate or graduate training and are working to develop a sustainable practice.
Residents engage with a wide range of distinguished artists, critics, curators, and scholars who are invited to meet individually with the residents, lead seminars, and deliver public lectures. Core fellows participate in a yearlong seminar, the content of which is driven by contemporary concerns, the interests and work of the fellows, and the Core lecture series and visitors.
The residency term is from September to May, fellows may apply for a second term. Each spring the program mounts an exhibition of work produced during the residency. Residents receive a 21,500 USD stipend and 24-hour access to a private studio or office.
Because the program is intended to foster intensive participation in an active peer group, fellows must reside in Houston for the duration of the Core term. Limited financial support is available for successful international applicants seeking J-1 visas through the program’s partner organization, International Arts & Artists.
