CAC HATCH Application for Curators

Chicago Artists Coalition's HATCH Residency is a juried program for emerging and mid-career Chicago visual artists and curators. It offers the opportunity to produce collaborative exhibitions and strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice.


How the HATCH residency works

Once selected, we divide HATCH Artist Residents into groups of 4 to work with one Curatorial Resident. Selected artists will participate in a duo and 4-person exhibition organized by their HATCH Curatorial Resident. Each Artist Resident receives professional development through dynamic exhibitions, one-on-one studio visits with their curator, public programs, and community building to develop a sustainable creative practice.


Through this unique hands-on experience and professional development program, Artist and Curatorial Residents develop valuable insight and experience in contemporary exhibition-making.
