BCA 2016–2017 Artist Residency Program: Focus on Public Engagement
The Artist Residency Program at the BCA provides studio space for three artists during the 2016–2017 season: a Public Artist Resident from June through August 2016, and Artist Residencies during September–December 2016 and January–May 2017. These process-oriented residencies are intended to provide an environment where artists can experiment with their craft, develop their focus or test new ideas and simultaneously engage in vital public dialogue. Artists are selected through an annual, juried Open Call process. Full details about our call for the 2017–2018 season will be posted on the BCA's website and publicized throughout the area in early Fall 2016.
The BCA's Artist Residency Program puts special emphasis on artist projects that engage the public in direct and innovative ways, through collaborative activities, participatory public installations, performance, intervention or other imaginative activation. Whether their practice is studio-, street-, or performance-based, artists are invited to use this opportunity to explore art that has public interaction and participation as significant elements.
