Residencies are conceivably the most defined narrative regarding artists working without conventional constraints to their creativity. The most respected programs comprise, in many ways, the broader story of artists, concepts, processes, and trends in various studio craft and art movements across decades. Sponsored by the John and Robin Horn Foundation, Unconstrained Craft: A Symposium on Artist Residencies will converge artists and industry leaders who have designed, developed, participated in, or shaped prominent residency programs around the world.

From 5:30-7:00pm, a keynote address and panel discussion will center on dialogue about the role and efficacy of residencies in shaping various art fields.
