NAVE provides time, space and an inspiring environment for making aimed towards a select group of artist producing exceptional work.
At NAVE we aim to provide a select group of contemporary artists with an exceptionally rich making-experience. To foster knowledge exchange between locals and visitors and to maintain a responsible and active engagement within the community we are part of. The residency is ultimately a haven for novel critical thought and a contemporary art/cultural platform. Our operation maintains an international projection -attuned- yet responsive and critical to the current ways of being of an increasingly globalized world.
NAVE artist residency program is located in a beautiful Hacienda house in Guayllabamba – Ecuador providing housing, studio space and resources for up to 10 artists per session.
NAVE is a residency by New Works. We are an artist run project space based in Humboldt Park Chicago. We aim to present a diverse array of experimental exhibitions removed from medium specificity. The intermittent use of white-cube spaces against the rough industrial nature of an active studio comments on the contingent nature of curatorial dispositions. Ultimately, prioritizing nothing but the relationship between the artist and their work vs. the architectural variables that govern us. Run by Antonio López & Rebecca Lothan.
