Artist Jeffrey Gibson during his 2019 Department of Education and Public Programs residency

Through residencies with the Department of Education and Public Engagement, artists develop their practice and engage others in projects addressing today’s most urgent questions and conditions.

Artists use Department of Education and Public Engagement residencies to take risks, cultivate skills, and engage others in dynamic processes. These residencies uphold the New Museum’s commitment to partnerships, public dialogue, and the intersection of art and social justice. Visitors and community partners are directly engaged through programs that employ one or more of the department’s core methods: convening, dialogue, learning and teaching, practice, and research.
