Chuquimarca’s residency program provides artists within the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Basin with connections to strengthen their practice, exchange knowledge, and bridge communities with Chicago.
This residency focuses on artists based in what is colonially known as the Midwest as a way to widen and decentralize art making and production in Chicago. Inversely, it also aims to pull in discourses originating and orbiting within the Great Lakes Basin, Great Plains, and Mississippi River Watershed into Chicago.
