Centrum is pleased to announce its 10th year of the Emerging Artist Residency, a program founded to bring visibility to and build connections between “up and coming” artists of the Pacific Northwest.
The program has brought over 60 artists and numerous visiting curators together over the last decade and has provided over $60,000 in stipends to artists, along with housing and studio spaces, podcast interviews, showcases, and open studios.
Most importantly, the residency has served as a critical moment for rest, recharging and launching new ideas in a field that is usually full of hustle and deadlines.
In recognition of the decades of applications and nominated artists, Centrum invited a selection of artists who were highly recognized by previous jurors but who were unable to attend previous years. The 2023 Emerging Artist Residents are: Kalimah Abioto, Hannah Krafcik, Dana Qaddah and Roin Morigeau. Read all about these dynamic artists by visiting centrum.org.
In celebration of Centrum’s 50th anniversary and 10 years of the Emerging Artist Residency’s support of visual and interdisciplinary focuses, this year’s program will feature two exciting public artist talks by visiting artists Dakota Camacho and Courtney Desiree Morris.
