HATCH Projects is a year-long, juried incubator for contemporary Chicago artists and curators that strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice. HATCH fosters shared experimentation, exchange and creativity to produce ground-breaking exhibitions and programs.
Artist Residents are divided into groups of six to work with one Curator Resident throughout the year. Selected artists will participate in three exhibitions curated by the group’s assigned Curator Resident. Each Artist Resident receives professional development through dynamic exhibitions, one-on-one studio visits, public programs, and community building to develop a sustainable creative practice. Through this unique hands-on experience and professional development program, Artist Residents develop valuable insight and experience in contemporary exhibition making.
