Workplace Residencies with Joseph Wilcox
Join us at LATITUDE for an interactive lesson with our current artist in residence, Joseph Wilcox.
Joseph will lead an interactive lesson on strategies for turning any place of employment into a readymade artist residency. Participants will leave with a self-produced implementation plan based on collective discussion and discovery.
Joseph Wilcox (b. 1984) is an artist and educator living in Chicago. His zines are part of small publishing libraries nationally and internationally.

Wilcox holds a BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design and an MFA from the Lesley University College of Art and Design.
