Current Artist in Residency: Gabriela Yoque
As the daughter of immigrants, I use my identity as a lens to understand and reposition societal constructs. Through the use of printmaking, performance, research, sculpture and installation, I reinterpret and refocus my experiences and narratives, from U.S. intervention in Central America to more personal, generational memory.
In questioning histories and access to information, I expose a lack of accountability in a larger American context, while reclaiming my place in the world.
About our Artist in Residency Program
Mission Gráfica’s Artist in Residency Program is designed to provide a creative environment for emerging and mid-career artists. Applicants should hold a BA, BFA, MFA or life equivalency representing an established foundation of knowledge and body of work in printmaking.
The residency will be from one to 4 months depending on the needs of the artist and the availability of the studio. Artists must have a clear objective for the time of their residency. Mission Gráfica’s facilities support several printmaking techniques, including intaglio, monoprint, relief, and screen-print.
Residents will be required to teach one workshop and to donate 5 prints to the MCCLA Archive. Additional teaching opportunities may be available but not required. Artists will have free use of all printmaking studio equipment and storage for their supplies.
Hours of the studio are Tuesday to Friday from 10:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
Applications should include a letter of intent, resume, and 10 to 15 piece portfolio in digital format along with two recent letters of recommendation.
