LATITUDE welcomes approximately one artist in residence per month to the lab each year. Lab staff act as artists' consultants, technical advisors, and assistants, helping bring specific projects and bodies of work to completion. In return, artists are asked to be active as both resources and mentors to the LATITUDE community, sharing their insights and creative methods. The goal of the residency program is to further LATITUDE's mission of promoting creative collaboration between our members and the wider art and photographic communities.
LATITUDE holds an open (and free!) call for residency applicants once per year. The next call will open August 1st, 2017, to select residents for 2018.
CURRENT ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
This month we are welcoming Joseph Wilcox as our artist-in-residence!
Joseph Wilcox (b. 1984) is an artist and educator living in Chicago. His zines are part of small publishing libraries nationally and internationally. As an artist, Wilcox takes on the role of object-maker, documentarian, curator, and project organizer to explore how institutional control and social power structures undermine the autonomy of the individual. He was most recently the co-founder and photo editor of LDOC, a free yearlong photography and creative writing publication that was distributed on the Red Line train in Chicago. Wilcox holds a BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design and an MFA from the Lesley University College of Art and Design. He is a current resident in HATCH Projects and teaches contemporary art practices to high school students in Chicago.
