Informing the artworld’s global economy and increasing professionalization, the artist residency has risen to the top, becoming one of the key features of contemporary art practice. Art critic and Momus publisher Sky Goodden hosts an overdue conversation on this phenomenon, featuring international curators, critics, artists, and residency directors.
Momus: The Podcast episode 2 features guests Daniel Baumann (director of Kunsthalle Zürich), Kristy Trinier (artist, curator, and former Banff Centre director), Aaron Cezar (founding director of Delfina Foundation), Michelle Grabner (artist, educator, and artistic director of Front International), and the co-directors of Beirut residency marra.tein, Jared McCormick and George Awde.
