Last month, Miami’s Fountainhead Arts announced it would be shifting toward thematic residencies in 2022. The move was designed to create a common thread among the artists-in-residence while offering the community a platform from which they can engage with their ideas and experiences.
Now, Fountainhead announces its 2022 artist residency selections. This roster is made up of 30 exceptional contemporary artists from around the world working across a variety of media.
“It has been truly incredible to witness Fountainhead’s evolution since I first arrived in Miami 10 years ago,” says juror Diana Nawi. “The caliber of artists whose work we both reviewed and selected for residencies is a testament to the incredible community and reputation that has formed around the organization. After a lively and dynamic selection process, many hard decisions were made; we’re incredibly happy for this year’s cohort and are excited to explore their work through this new thematic framework.”
