HATCH Projects is a yearlong, juried incubator for contemporary Chicago artists and curators that strives to support an ecology of curatorial and artistic practice. HATCH fosters shared experimentation, exchange, and creativity to produce ground-breaking exhibitions and programs.

Artist Residents are divided into groups of six to work with one Curator Resident. Selected artists will participate in a 3-person exhibition curated by the group’s assigned Curator Resident. Halfway through the year, Artist Residents can decide to continue with their Curator Resident or work with another one in the program for their 6-person exhibition. Each Artist Resident receives professional development through dynamic exhibitions, one-on-one studio visits, public programs, and community building to develop a sustainable creative practice. Through this unique hands-on experience and professional development program, Artist Residents develop valuable insight and experience in contemporary exhibition making.
