Rethinking Residencies is pleased to invite you to the Launch Event of their new book Bringing Worlds Together: A Rethinking Residencies Reader, taking place at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn.
Bringing Worlds Together: A Rethinking Residencies Reader is the first anthology on art residencies published in the United States. It is a companion to the Rethinking Residencies Symposium, which invited artists, curators, scholars, and residency organizations to address residency programs as critical sites of research and production within the visual arts. The eleven essays and three conversations in Bringing Worlds Together reflect on art residencies at present—at a time when residencies play a critical role in art’s ecosystem. They address a cross-section of ideas about residency programs, bound together by a deep concern for the care and ethics that go into shaping residency programs and hosting artists and curators.
Books will be available for purchase at the Launch Event, and/or may be pre-ordered here.
The Rethinking Residencies Symposium invited artists, curators, scholars, and residency organizations worldwide to come together to address residency programs as critical sites of production within the field of visual arts. The symposium considered existing scholarship and cultivate new thinking about the history, institutional structures, and conditions of visual art residencies. More information about the 2021 Rethinking Residencies Symposium is available here.
Founded in 2014, Rethinking Residencies is the first network of New York-based artist and curator residency programs, and the symposium will be its most extensive event to date. The 15 member institutions of Rethinking Residencies generate knowledge and resources, anchored together in cooperation and collaboration.
