Artists in Residence

A list of the current and upcoming artists in residence.

It was with deep regret that we made the difficult decision to suspend our residency program through all of 2020. We greatly appreciate the artists’ understanding that these decisions were the responsible choice to make for our local and global community and those most at risk. When we have confirmation and details on the 2021 season, we will share it.

Partnerships: In 2020, the Rauschenberg Residency is partnering with 3Arts (Chicago), Photolucida (Portland), Thoma Foundation, and Oolite Arts (Miami), in order to expand the selection process and broaden diversity.

PhD Candidates: In 2020, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation inaugurated a residency program for scholars who are nearing completion of their dissertations on Postwar art. These emerging art historians are provided with the time to make significant progress on their dissertations.
