THE CORE PROGRAM: CURATORIAL RESIDENCY
CPR Core Programs are aimed to curators, and developed in cities where occasions for curatorial access and research are less self-evident - in some cases, non-existent - than in the world’s major art cities. By creating opportunities to open up these specific cultural scenes from the inside out, they lift themselves out of the periphery and healthy networks are fostered. CPR effectively brokers relationships between participating curators and art professionals on the ground, resulting in greater visibility for the city’s art scene worldwide. The overriding aim is to create international opportunities for artists, organizations and curators, and in doing so enhance inter-cultural dialogue and mutual understanding.
During our fully funded Core Programs, CPR provides an in depth, custom oriented research schedule, directed by a local CPR host. Each program lasts for up to six days per city, and encompasses 3 to 5 cities. Merging academia with on site research, CPR local hosts welcome the groups with an intensive program that includes readings and classes about local history, arts and culture, as well as studio visits and other local art institutions and endeavors. During the Core Program, CPR curators-in-residence are required to present and discuss articles, papers, and essays related to their daily visits.
CPR Core Programs are fully funded and free of charge.
THE NETWORK PROGRAM: ARTIST RESIDENCY IN NEW YORK CITY
CPR Artist Residency Program takes place once a year in New York City. Hosted by local institutions, artists and independent curators, the program gathers a cohort of up to fifteen local and international artists. The robust programming offers daily visits to artist studios and local arts institutions, and it is complemented by readings about socio-political history, arts, and culture.
Part workshop providing keys how to navigate in a local and global art world and part meeting between colleagues around a number of urgent concerns, this program acts as a platform to share knowledge and approach new perspectives. The bulk of the program consist of hands on lectures and workshops, combined with a strong thematically focus around relevant contemporary subjects.
CPR Network Program is partially funded and free of charge.
THE APARTMENT PROGRAM: ART PROFESSIONALS RESIDENCY IN BUENOS AIRES
CPR Apartment Residency Program takes place several times a year in Buenos Aires. Hosted by local artists and independent curators, this residency program focuses on the professional development of one artist and/or curator who will spend a set period of time in Buenos Aires.
The Apartment Residency program has two formats: 3 or 6 weeks. The shorter stay offers an introduction to the city and its vibrant art scene, and brings attention to the many local opportunities that exists in this South American city. The longer stay includes collaborations with other local residencies and one-on-one Spanish classes for the duration of the stay.
The resident will be guided by a local host and features a stay at a comfortable apartment centrally located in Buenos Aires.
CPR Apartment Program is partially funded and free of charge.
