As Chicago Park District Arts Partners in Residence, Khecari trades public programming for studio use. Between January’s intense end-of-year admin tasks and our yearly break in February we typically have a chunk of time where we’re not using the studio at Indian Boundary Cultural Center and are now in our second year of sharing our resources with BIPOC/ALAANA* artists in our community during this time. In 2022 we offered our inaugural year to Chih-Hsien Lin, an artist that identifies as an Asian Immigrant that has worked with Khecari for almost a decade. We invited them as our first resident so we could work through the details on how this residency will be administered and supported and get feedback from her on her experience. For 2023 we created a simple application process open to the public to then choose the 2023 resident by lottery. This year's resident is Isabella Limosnero. This residency offers a no-tech, studio practice space with a residency stipend equal to Khecari’s equal-pay-for-all hourly rate, currently $18/hr and a no-tech work-in-progress showing at the end. Please sign up for our newsletter to get notifications for the next application round.
*We understand that the BIPOC/ALAANA nomenclature can be insufficient and welcome your comments on how we can better represent this. Our intention is to let it continually evolve based on the desires from the community.
** We welcome all people with disabilities to our events. If you require a specific access service to fully participate or have any questions about accessibility, contact Cristina Tadeo at [email protected] Please be in touch as soon as you know you would like to join us so we can make sure we have the accommodations ready for you on the day you will attend.
*** TRIGGER WARNING: In addition to the fact that the name “Indian Boundary” denotes a line created to ethnically cleanse the area, there is also imagery within the fieldhouse that may be triggering to many, in particular to Native Americans and Jews. We want to notify people in advance as a trigger warning, and to affirm Khecari’s anti-racist stance.
