HATCH Projects is a yearlong, juried incubator for contemporary Chicago artists and curators that strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice. Curator Residents are then responsible for selecting 24 Artist Residents. Each Curator Resident manages a group of 6 artists for the year to realize two innovative and experimental 3-person exhibitions and public programs at CAC. Curator Residents receive professional development through feedback from and working with Mentor Curators, as well as through conversations and critiques with an active peer-to-peer creative network. Through this unique hands-on experience and mentorship program, curators develop valuable insight and experience in contemporary exhibition making. Curators who demonstrate an interest in contemporary art and a commitment to creating dynamic and innovative exhibitions with at least 1 – 3 year(s) of curatorial experience are encouraged to apply. Curatorial Residents each receive a $1000 stipend to manage HATCH Projects.
