We are pleased to announce that our 2017/2018 Artist Residency program will include five artists hailing from across the country including Iowa and North Carolina, as well as three Denver-based artists this year. PlatteForum’s Resident Artists have been chosen through a competitive national selection process and will each spend five to eight weeks in residency with PlatteForum in the coming season. A cornerstone of the work PlatteForum brings to Denver’s cultural community, the Artist Residency program supports contemporary artists as they work, strengthening their individual practice through collaboration and community engagement.
Each residency will conclude with a free, public exhibition of the artist’s work, which represents their collaborative experiences with PlatteForum’s ArtLab interns, who have been led in weekly workshops by the resident artist during his or her time in residency.
PlatteForum’s 2017/2018 Artist Residency line-up is as follows:
