CURRENT ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: JEREMY BOLEN
Jeremy Bolen is a Chicago based artist, researcher, organizer, and educator interested in site specific, experimental modes of documentation and presentation. Much of Bolen’s work involves rethinking systems of recording in an attempt to observe invisible presences that remain from various scientific experiments and human interactions with the earth’s surface. He is a recent recipient of the PACT Zollverein Residency in Essen, Germany; Oxbow Faculty Artist Residency in Saugatuck, MI; and Center for Land Use Interpretation Residency in Wendover, Utah.
His work has been exhibited at numerous locations including the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; La Box, Bourges; PACT Zollverein, Essen; IDEA Space, Colorado Springs; The Mission, Houston; Galerie Zürcher, Paris; Andrew Rafacz, Chicago; Salon Zürcher, New York; The Drake, Toronto; Untitled Art Fair, Miami; Gallery 400, Chicago; Newspace Center for Photography, Portland; and Depaul University Art Museum, Chicago. Bolen currently serves as faculty at the School of Art Institute of Chicago and is represented by Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago.

The LATITUDE Residency program brings 8-10 artists into the lab annually to develop and produce their projects free of charge while receiving guidance, training and support from staff and volunteers. Artists gain access to the LATITUDE community through their day-to-day interactions, studio visits, and staff supported development of a piece of free public programming. 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 users 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, 2018, to select residents for 2019.
