The Chinati Foundation’s Artist in Residence program
CHINATI, US | DEADLINE: JANUARY 1
The Chinati Foundation’s Artist in Residence program was instituted in 1989 with the aim of supporting the development of artists of diverse ages, backgrounds, and disciplines. Exhibitions are often held at the conclusion of the residency. These become an important part of the museum’s temporary exhibition program, and provide a vital counterpoint to the permanent collection. The Chinati Foundation provides a furnished apartment on the museum’s grounds and a studio in Marfa. Resident artists have unlimited access to Chinati’s collection and archive, and the museum staff and interns are available to assist in securing materials and preparing exhibitions. A stipend of $1,000 is provided to assist with travel and art materials. Marfa is a small town in a sparsely populated area of far West Texas, and artists may spend a great deal of time alone. Residencies are two months long.
