The BMoCA + Swoon International Artists Residency exists to invite creatives from around the world to explore their practice within the Boulder community. Our goal is to foster the growth of emerging and established artists, musicians, writers, curators, and other creatives by providing them with the studio space, resources, time, and freedom to take risks and realize expansive works of their imagination. The residency emphasizes the importance of a meaningful and multi-layered cultural exchange. Our goal is that residents will have time to focus and investigate their own practice and also become involved in the Boulder community.
The 2019 iteration of the BMoCA + Swoon International Artists Residency will feature Berta García Faet, a Spanish poet, translator, and scholar of Hispanic Literature; and Tim Atkins, a widely-translated and published poet and professor based out of London. This residency will celebrate literature as an art form which embodies poignant social topics of our time and documents our shared human experience in a direct and powerful way.
