The Residence is a program that invites curators, organizers, and cultural producers from around the country to produce an exhibit, lecture, or program connecting Pittsburgh's creative community to a national conversation.
Patrick Gantert and Rachel Schmidhofer join Pittsburgh curator Adam Welch for their August residencies. During their overlapping stays, Patrick and Rachel will conduct studio visits with artists and participate in a panel discussion with local curator/artist/organizers Jessie Rommelt and Sean Beauford.
The Residence in August is presented in partnership with Radiant Hall.
Join us for a panel talk and open conversation with a group of folks who wear many hats - literally and figuratively. Sean Beauford (PGH), Patrick Gantert (MN), Jessie Rommelt (PGH), Rachel Schmidhofer (NYC), moderated by Johanna Lasner.
Refreshments and real talk will be served.
Presented by Casey Droege Cultural Productions and RADIANT HALL.

Aay Preston-Myint and Latham Zearfoss, of Chicago-based collective Chances Dances, visited Pittsburgh to capture the arts community through a series of exchanges of insider/outsider perspectives. By having conversations with local artists staged on and across the city's various bridges, a portrait/mapping of the current local creative scene will surface not only through words and ideas, but also original art responding to the different Pittsburgh settings, a recipe exchange, and discovered ephemera. Working with local curator Hannah Turpin, Preston-Myint and Zearfoss' visit culminated in a visual documentation that wove together each experience into a vibrant narrative, offering a glimpse of how Pittsburgh art and artists live in our contemporary moment.
The Residence in May is presented in partnership with Radiant Hall.
The Residence began in the Spring of 2016, with housing generously provided by Barbara Luderowski, President and Co-Director of the Mattress Factory. Tereneh Mosley was the first in residence with a collaborative pop-up exhibit of her Idia'Dega collections in February and March of 2016.
Elena Harvey Collins, with the support of Radiant Hall, was in residence for April 2016 and will return for additional programming in the Fall of 2017.
