Hyde Park Art Center is thrilled to announce the 6th iteration of the Jackman Goldwasser Residency. Each year, the residency provides a platform for international, national, and local artists and curators to take creative risks within their practice and expand professional networks in the context of a community-focused art space. Launched in 2012, the residency facilitates relationships between visiting artists and the city’s wealth of resources to develop artists’ work and enrich the context for making in Chicago.

Resident artists
Nadim Abbas (Hong Kong), Jess Atieno (Nairobi, Kenya), Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska (Skopje, Macedonia), Dorothea Carl (Hamburg, Germany), Max Guy (Chicago), Damon Locks (Chicago), Kellie Romany (Chicago) & Moe Satt (Yangon, Myanmar)

Visiting curator
Erzen Shkololli (Prishtina, Kosovo)

International visiting artists include Moe Satt (February 5–25), an artist and curator who founded a performance festival in Myanmar to support a new generation of emerging Burmese artists; Jess Atieno (May 7–June 30) who utilizes mixed-media techniques to explore human interaction within minority groups, specifically looking at how archives are impacted by historical bias, Yane Calovski & Hristina Ivanoska (July 9–August 30) derive their work from an interest in architecture, literature, theory, art history, as well as socio-political questions in a post-communist Macedonia, Dorothea Carl (March 1–30), an experimental filmmaker who creates video installations, short and documentary film works set in developing urban spaces; and Nadim Abbas (September 5–November 2), whose immersive theatrical scenarios reference a diverse range of subjects in an attempt to describe the “invisible violences” that permeate seemingly innocuous facets of everyday life,

The Art Center also launches a new collaboration with FRISE, a residency and exhibition platform in Hamburg, Germany for Migration of the Imaginary, which features artists Dorothea Carl (Hamburg) and Aram Han Sifuentes (Chicago). The exchange considers the lived realities for immigrant, refugee, and other new communities in each city as they connect and integrate into a host culture.  We invited artist working deeply in their own local communities to expand their methodologies in new ones and consider how artists can be effective leaders in this charge.

Working alongside the visiting residents are Chicago-based artists Max Guy, a conceptual artist whose work takes the form of print, sculpture and installation, giving form to existential crises, moral and ethical dilemmas; Kellie Romany, a non-representational, figurative painter interested in bodily representation, materiality and the history of the painting process; and Damon Locks who inaugurates our new Public-Engaged Residency. Locks will locate his multi-layered, interdisciplinary practice, which combines printmaking, drawing, education, music composition, performance, and dance to the Art Center, where his studio will be a public facing hub allowing our community to interact with and participate in some of his ongoing  projects.

Invited to engage with artists working at the Art Center and across town this spring is curator Erzen Shkololli (April 15–30), currently director of “Une e du Kosoven,” a philanthropic foundation that encourages social development in Kosovo through culture, technology, and sports. Shkololli was also the curatorial advisor to Documenta 14 between 2016–17. This visit will mark Shkololli’s first to Chicago to conduct studio visits, engage with the cultural community across the city’s vast geography, and hold a public dialogue about his ongoing work.
