About the Program
Started in 2010 and held each Spring in partnership with Aljira, a Center for Contemporary Art, Re-Source is a unique and valuable opportunity for artists of varying mediums to meet one-on-one with established curators and esteemed artists in order to improve both their business and their craft. The full day workshop helps to address the many issues working artists face during the early part of their careers. Frequent topics of discussion include a technical analysis of works, how to seek and secure exhibition opportunities, marketing and copywriting, crafting an artist statement, networking, and educational opportunities.
New in 2013 were a public art panel discussion and peer review break out sessions. Artists were able to commune with their colleagues to get a fresh perspective on their work as well as revisit the formal critique.
Previous participants have come from the following organizations: Creative Capital (NYC); El Museo del Barrio (NYC); International Studio and Curatorial Program (Brooklyn, NY); Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (Brooklyn, NY); Rutgers University (NJ); Seton Hall University (NJ); and The Studio Museum of Harlem (NYC) as well as renowned visual artists Ben Jones (NJ) and Kymia Nawabi (NY) among many others.
Re-Source has been made possible with support from PNC Bank.
