Incubator Grant

VIA Art Fund is proud to sponsor the Spring 2019 International Artist-in-Residence (IAIR) Program at Artpace. Led by guest curator Deborah Willis, Chair of the Department and Photography & Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, the Program will host Tucson-based multimedia artist Sama Alshaibi, London-based photographer Roshini Kempadoo, and San Antonio-based ceramicist/performance artist Jennifer Ling Datchuk. The works of the artists selected address themes such as feminism, exile, race, resistance, and resilience through different media, materials, and props. Following their two-month residency, the artists’ work will be exhibited at Artpace for a period of two months.

Artpace San Antonio is a nonprofit residency program which supports regional, national, and international artists in the creation of new art. As a catalyst for artistic expression, they engage local communities with global art practices and experiences. The International Artist-in-Residence (IAIR) Program provides nine artists a year with a studio, furnished apartment, living stipend, production budget, access to a fully-equipped workshop, and the support of a full-time studio staff.
