Monument Lab is hosting its first-ever artist residency program for Philadelphia public artists. Through the theme of “exchange,” our goal is to support emerging public artists to evolve their practice and prepare for future large-scale monument commission opportunities while building stronger relationships within and across the city’s neighborhoods.
Artists-in-residence in their early-to-mid career are encouraged to experiment with monumental materials and methods, foster relationships across Philadelphia neighborhoods, build out their portfolios with an exhibition, and join Monument Lab’s growing community of local, national, and transnational monument changemakers. Through this residency, Monument Lab seeks to contribute to the ecosystem of emerging monument change-makers and support emerging artists in growing their practice through place-based relationships.
Two Philadelphia emerging public artists will be selected to create prototype projects that will be exhibited at the end of the year-long residency.
An in-person Resource Session will be held on September 7, 2023 from 5:00 - 7:30 pm EST.
