Application details

Currently not accepting applications for BOLT

BOLT applications will open for artists in February 2020.

BOLT is a one-year juried residency program for emerging and mid-career Chicago artists offers onsite studio space and monthly visits by influential artists and art professionals.

How the BOLT residency works

The BOLT residency program focuses on helping artists advance their career in an environment that allows for expansive thinking and opportunities to engage with their co-residents in a group setting. Each of the six (6) selected residents will create artwork in a professional studio space at Chicago Artists Coalition. The Chicago Artists Coalition open-plan onsite studio space encourages connection between co-residents.

Additionally, residents have access to influential artists, curators, and educators through individual studio visits. All residents work towards the mounting of their solo exhibitions, which will be on view for six weeks.

 

BOLT Residency provides:

  • Six (6) professional open-plan onsite studios
  • 400-square-foot gallery space for a solo exhibition
  • Monthly studio visits by outside curators, artists, writers, and others
  • The program is non-residential: no room/board is offered.
