2021 will be the sixth year for the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21’s Artist-in-Residence program. The goal of our residency is to enable an artist to create new work that contributes to the Museum’s mandate while advancing their art practice.
In light of the challenges created by the pandemic, this will be a virtual residency. The 2021 residency is very flexible on medium and timing. For example where historically artists have worked at the museum sixteen hours a week for six months, this year we will welcome proposals for projects that take from 2 to 8 months.
