Residency Unlimited Co-sponsored Visual AIDS Residency

March 2015

A one-month residency, to take place in March of 2015, in New York City for a curator, art historian, or arts writer interested in the intersection of visual art and HIV/AIDS. Co-sponsored by Visual AIDS and Residency Unlimited, the curatorial residency seeks to encourage the development of exhibitions, programs, and scholarship about HIV/AIDS and contemporary art.

Residency Unlimited will provide the curator with customized administrative and network support, shared office space at 360 Court Street in Brooklyn and a venue for a public program (lecture/screening/discussion) defined in conjunction with RU and Visual AIDS. Concurrently, the resident curator will conduct research at Visual AIDS in the Archive Project and online Artists Registry. The Visual AIDS office is located in the Chelsea art district in New York City. The Archive and Registry at Visual AIDS holds over 20,000 images by approximately 662 artists living with HIV and those who have passed away. Studio visits with artists from the Archive Project are strongly encouraged. The resident curator is invited to create an online exhibition to be hosted by Visual AIDS (see Visual AIDS monthly Web Galleries at:

The resident curator will be invited to produce a free, public event co-hosted by RU and Visual AIDS. Panel discussions, film screenings, performances, or a lecture highlighting the curator’s use of Visual AIDS’ resources or a presentation of international cultural production around HIV/AIDS are examples of potential programs.

The residency includes round-trip transportation to New York City, accommodations and $1000 stipend.

International applicants are strongly encouraged to apply. English speaking and writing skills are required

Please submit a C.V. and a Statement of Purpose (maximum 2 pages) outlining your goals for the residency, and any past or current projects that have led you to cultural investigations around HIV/AIDS. Special consideration will be given to applicants living outside of NYC from locations without support for cultural production about AIDS, LGBT, and gender issues.

Applications are due November 7, 2014. Applicants will be notified by December 8, 2014

The one-month residency must take place between March 1 and March 31, 2015

About Critical Response Process (CRP)

Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process is a widely-recognized method that nurtures the development of artistic works-in-progress through a four-step, facilitated dialogue between artists, peers, and audiences. In use for over 20 years, CRP has been embraced by artmakers, educators, and administrators at theater companies, dance departments, orchestras, museums and more. CRP has deepened dialogue between artists and audiences; it has enhanced learning between teachers and students. By extension it has proven valuable for all kinds of creative endeavors, work situations, and collaborative relationships within and beyond the arts, from kindergartens to corporations.

Liz has led dozens of Critical Response workshops and intensives on four continents. A few recent examples include intensives at the University of Georgia, to theater practitioners in both Ireland and Scotland, and with the Blue Touch Paper new-works series of the London Sinfonietta. In 2013 she traveled to Australia to teach CRP intensives on both coasts.

CRP in Baltimore

The Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) is excited to be bringing Critical Response Process (CRP) training to Baltimore. As part of GBCA’s professional development services and with support from the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, Ms. Lerman and her colleague and co-author John Borstel will personally conduct all training sessions.

On Wednesday, October 29, Liz Lerman will lead a free, introductory session on Critical Response Process for 75 to 80 participants. Individuals should expect to actively participate in the session and must come prepared to discuss a project or work in progress to explore during the training. (A full schedule may be found below.)

Liz Lerman will provide leadership for six sessions and will be supported by John Borstel for three of these sessions. Facilitators-in-training will begin offering their services to local organizations and artists but will do so in pairs. The pairing process has been found to support the quality of facilitation and engender confidence and further learning on the part of the facilitators. The facilitation service will be offered through the GBCA website, but all agreements will be made between the facilitators and the individual or organization contracting for their service. The facilitator teams may charge a modest fee for their services. Participating organizations and artists will be surveyed on the quality and impact of CRP.
