The Core Program at the Glassell School of Art,Museum of Fine Arts,Houston,USA awards residencies to visual artists and critical writers who have completed their undergraduate or graduate training and are working to develop a sustainable practice. Residents participate in a yearlong seminar and engage with a range of leading artists,critics,curators and art historians who are invited to meet individually with the residents,lead group seminars,and deliver public lectures. The residency term is nine months,from September to May,and fellows may apply for a second term. Residents receive a $14,000 stipend,24-hour access to a private studio or office,and borrowing privileges at the Museum’s Hirsch Library and Rice University’s Fondren Library. Each spring the program mounts an exhibition of work produced during the current residency term,which is accompanied by a publication featuring essays by the critical-studies residents and documenting the work of all the residents.
