Established in 1982, the Core Program awards residencies to exceptional, highly motivated visual artists and critical writers who are working to develop a sustainable practice. Residents participate in a yearlong seminar and engage with a wide range of leading artists, critics, curators and art historians who are invited to meet individually with the residents, lead group seminars, and deliver public lectures. Each spring the program mounts an exhibition of work produced during the current residency term, which is accompanied by a publication that documents the artists’ work and features essays contributed by the critical studies residents. Each resident receives a stipend and studio or office space.

Applications for 2016–17 residencies are due April 1, 2016.
