About Disjecta’s Curator-in-Residence Program:

The Curator-in-Residence program provides an opportunity for emerging curatorial talent to develop and expand the scope of their practice through a one-year residency. Curators engage with a broad range of artists to create a series of exhibitions in Disjecta’s dynamic 3,500-square-foot space. Past Curators-in-Residence include: Julia Greenway (2017-18), Michele Fiedler (2016-17), Chiara Giovando (2015-16), Rachel Adams (2014-15), Summer Guthery (2013-14), Josephine Zarkovich (2012-13), and Jenene Nagy (2011-12).

The 2018-19 Curator-in-Residence program is supported by the Oregon Cultural Trust.

Disjecta Contemporary Art Center is supported by Oregon Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Regional Arts & Culture Council, the Oregon Community Foundation, James F. And Marion L. Miller Foundation, the Arts Impact Fund and The Robert and Mercedes Eichholz Foundation. Other businesses and individuals provided additional support.

c3:initiative is a co-presenting partner with the Disjecta Contemporary Art Center Curator in Residence program for a second year during the 2018- 2019 season. The program lends studio and low residency space to artists exhibiting as part of the upcoming CiR season. When possible c:3 hosts open studios and partner events at our North Portland location, as part of the program.
