The Core Program Visual Artists and Critical Studies Residencies

The Core Program awards visual artists 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.

Established in 1982 within the Glassell School of Art of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas, USA, 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 preeminent artists, critics, curators and art historians.
