Application for HATCH Projects Artist Residency is now closed

HATCH Projects is a yearlong, 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.

NEW: Artist Residents are divided into groups of 4 to work with one Curatorial Resident. Selected artists will participate in a duo and 4-person exhibition organized by their Curatorial 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.

*Please note that artists currently participating in the FIELD/WORK Residency are not eligible to apply to HATCH Projects for the upcoming session. Conversely, HATCH Residents cannot apply to the FIELD/WORK Residency until their program has concluded.*
