The Evanston Art Center (EAC) is excited to launch an inaugural “artwork-in-residence” program, inviting 6 artists to “move in” to the second floor Evanston Art Center project space for 4-week residencies. From June 2016 – March 2017, the Art Center will proudly host artists and . Each of the artists chosen by curator will address the residency theme Society!during their 4-week stay. Taking this opportunity to create a space for the political, the personal, the imaginary, the speculative and the unregulated, residency artists will have work that engages, reflects or models society today in myriad ways. “This program gives artists the chance to use a semi-public hybrid work/gallery space in a way that they see fit – for the production, display and development of their work. There are no “strings attached” in terms of a final product or outcome,” stated Jessica Cochran in her curatorial proposal for Society! Artists were required to submit proposals that included how they intend to use the Art Center’s space and their plans to engage the Evanston community through public programs in correlation with their residency.
