The Artist-in-research residency at threewalls offers opportunities to curators, artists, critics, creative administrators, and visual arts researchers to live and work in Chicago and take advantage of the unique resources offered in the Midwest. threewalls provides a home-base for that work, with connections and affiliations to a broad range of organizations small and large throughout the region.

Projects can include film, intervention, public installation, pedagogical experiments, publishing, recording, performance, curating or more traditional studio practices. An emphasis on interdisciplinary research, collaboration, and proposals that take our region and its communities and institutions as a specific site of inquiry are of interest, but not required. Since we have a gallery space specifically for resident use, projects with a public component are encouraged. The Artist-in-Research Program is a laboratory for experimentation and critical dialogue, and therefore we do not have any expectations for the completion of artwork or projects.

We are looking for residents who want to become part of a vibrant artist-led organization, which hosts and produces exhibitions, public programs, conferences, discussion series, artist commissioning projects, and publications. We have a dedicated audience and offer access to a growing network of regional, national and international artistic communities. We welcome cultural producers who are interested in writing, reading, organizing, publishing and teaching as a creative practice, have a sense of humor and a desire to challenge themselves and their work. We can accommodate collectives and collaborative projects.
