Hyde Park Art Center is very pleased to announce the 10th 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 historic, community-rooted art space in the heart of Chicago. The visiting residency program returns this year after a hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, in collaboration with new and enduring national and international partner organizations.

“While we were able to deepen direct support for Chicago artists last year, we’re particularly excited to welcome visiting artists and curators back to the Art Center, to learn and connect inside our space. Visiting residents are an essential part of the program, and in 2022 we’re eager to plant seeds for long-term engagement between practices located both here and there." says Megha Ralapati, Residency Program Director.

2021 Chicago resident artists
Year-long Radicle Studio artists are Regina Agu, whose multimedia practice explores how landscapes, people, and histories are connected; Joseph Lefthand, an artist and administrator who investigates the role of embodiment and communal inquiry as sustainable modes of discourse to confront systems of violence; and Robert E. Paige, an artist, educator, painter of textiles and founding member of AfriCOBRA, whose work is inspired by West African art and design.

Project-based Flex Residents are Ariella Granados (January 15–April 24) who explores telenovelas and internet subculture through an interdisciplinary practice shaped by lived experiences as a bicultural disabled person; Jennefer Hoffmann (January 15–April 22), whose sculptural forms are open objects for contemplation and exploration; Noelle Garcia (May 3–August 15), an indigenous artist who mines identity, family history and recovered narratives through paintings and multimedia sculpture; Bun Stout (August 30–December 12), whose practice catalyzes brief experiences of transformation, particularly for queer people, through sculpture, fashion, and digital media; and Edra Soto studies forms in vernacular architecture familiar to her native Puerto Rico to address the adaptability and hybridity of cultural representation. Soto will be in residency in 2022 to produce work for her 2023 solo exhibition.

Visiting residency program

With support from the McKnight Artist Residencies consortium and the Artist Communities Alliance (ACA), we will welcome Minneapolis-based artist Melissa Clark (March 31 - April 14), a dancer interested in cross-cultural intersections in dance culture across the African diaspora.

In partnership with the Black Arts Consortium at Northwestern University and Abakanowicz Arts + Culture Charitable Foundation Research + Production Fund, we will welcome curator Oyindamola Fakeye (September 26-October 5), Creative Director of the Center for Contemporary Art in Lagos, Nigeria, and artist Kelvin Haizel (June 1-September 30), working across Ghana to explore the image via notions of the expanded field of photography. Haizel is the inaugural recipient of The David C. and Sarajean Ruttenberg Arts Foundation Award.

Finally, we continue our ongoing partnership with CEC ArtsLink’s acclaimed international fellowship program to invite Latvia-based curator Tina Petersone (October 3-November 17), whose research interests include psychogeography, collective memory and trauma, and Post-Soviet identity. With support from the Abakanowicz Arts + Culture Charitable Foundation Research + Production Fund.
