Exchange residencies are dedicated to exploring emerging local ecologies of contemporary art production in key metropols. 2015 highlighted Chicago, 2016 focused on Miami and for 2017 we are looking to Baltimore.

The program offers six fellowships (room/board/travel/$1000 honorarium) to artists based in the chosen city to participate in an Elsewhere Residency, creating site-specific projects in or around Elsewhere’s 100-year-old building.

The program also serves as an incubator for collaborative creation and critical, experimental artwork, while building networks among a common field of alternative artists and arts organizations.



Elsewhere seeks to curate a dynamic, interdisciplinary artist experience that will generate collaborative formations among local artists from Baltimore and build connectivity between our two cities. The program offers fellowships to six Baltimore artists to participate in an Elsewhere residency session. Our 2017 Fellows, selected through a robust nomination and review process, are:

Fellowships are primarily based on nominations from a field of arts professionals. Elsewhere solicits nominations from a group of over 30 artists, curators, collectors, and university educators in an effort to build an expanded regional network of experimental practitioners, and foster an exciting cohort of exceptional artists.

Elsewhere is seeking artists with sophisticated, socially and critically engaged work, and commitment to their city or region. A residency at Elsewhere is an uncommon experience. We are specifically looking for artists who connect with our mission by demonstrating experimentation, aesthetic adventure and radical practices or for which our residency would be meaningful. Elsewhere seeks to curate a diverse cohort in terms of geography, race, identity, and media.
