Chicago’s Hyde Park Art Center is pleased to announce the artists who have been selected to participate in the 2017 Jackman Goldwasser Residency. Each year, the program provides a platform for international, national, and local artists to take creative risks within their practice and expand their professional networks. Launched in 2012, the program facilitates relationships between visiting artists and the city’s wealth of resources to develop artists’ work and enrich the context for artmaking in Chicago.

2017 resident artists
Bianca Bernardo (Rio de Janeiro), Sara Black (Chicago), Bethany Collins (Chicago), Gabriel Martinez (Houston), Justine Pluvinage (Lille), Ronit Porat (Tel Aviv), Lan Tuazon (Chicago)

Visiting curator
Bisi Silva, Founder/Director of Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos (CCA, Lagos)

International visiting artists include Rio de Janeiro-based artist Bianca Bernardo (April 4 through May 27), whose hybrid practice merges performance, education, curatorial work and connects with independent art spaces in Brazil and across South America; Justine Pluvinage (February 14 through March 24) from Lille, France will participate in Resilient Images,an exchange with the Centre de Regional de la photographie Nord to develop a new site specific video work for Hyde Park Art Center; and Ronit Porat (September 7 through November 4), a photographic artist from in Tel Aviv who mines archival materials and biographical texts to create photo-based installations.

Hyde Park Art Center also embarks on the second round of the 2:2:2: Exchange with Project Row Houses. Initiated in 2014, the exchange provides an opportunity for artists to research localized ways of making in a different city to enhance their practices at home. Houston native Gabriel Martinez (August through September) will visit Chicago to expand his exploration of urban spatial politics and develop new research projects connected to the city.

Working alongside these visiting residents are Chicago-based artists Bethany Collins, a conceptual artist whose work is fueled by the critical exploration of how race and language interact; Lan Tuazon, a sculptor whose ongoing work explores our built environment through the order and distinction of everyday objects and artifacts; and Sara Black, who will be developing an exhibition which will transform Hyde Park Art Center’s Gallery 1 through her collaborative, sculptural practice.

Intersecting with residents this spring is Bisi Silva (March 24 through April 1), Founder and Director of Centre for Contemporary Art, Lagos in Nigeria. Silva will make a curatorial trip to Chicago to conduct studio visits, engage with the city across its vast geography, and hold a public dialogue on her ongoing work.

Founded in 1939, Hyde Park Art Center is a unique resource that advances contemporary visual art in Chicago by connecting artists and communities across the city’s diverse landscape in unexpected ways. As an open forum for exploring the artistic process, the Art Center fosters creativity through making, learning about, seeing, and discussing art—all under one roof.

Residency and Special Projects Manager, Megha Ralapati notes, “We’re excited this year to develop our model of residency exchanges, as we collaborate again with Project Row Houses and initiate partnerships with ARTPORT in Tel Aviv and the CRP in France, to invite dynamic artists to Chicago as well as create transformative opportunities for our artists abroad.”
