Founded in 2014, Rethinking Residencies is a network of New York–based artist and curator residency programs. The group generates knowledge and resources, anchored together in cooperation and collaboration. Bringing Worlds Together: A Rethinking Residencies Reader is the first anthology on art residencies published in the United States. It is a companion to the Rethinking Residencies Symposium, which invited artists, curators, scholars, and residency organizations to address residency programs as critical sites of research and production within the visual arts. The eleven essays and three conversations in Bringing Worlds Together reflect on art residencies at present—at a time when residencies play a critical role in art’s ecosystem. They address a cross-section of ideas about residency programs, bound together by a deep concern for the care and ethics that go into shaping residency programs and hosting artists and curators.
