Art Omi: Artists invites artists, critics, and curators from around the world - representing a wide diversity of artistic styles and practices - to gather in rural New York to experiment, collaborate, and share ideas. Concentrated time for creative work is balanced with the stimulation of cultural exchange and critical appraisal. Art Omi: Artists Residency nurtures deep creative and professional connections in a vibrant social setting. Each session, two dozen international artists are invited to the program, along with two critics/curators who participate as Critic Emeritus and Critic/Curator-In-Residence. These two individuals play a pivotal role in the residency as they facilitate discussions, help connect the artists with art world professionals through the Visitors Program, and conduct individual studio visits with the 23 artists in residence throughout the duration of the residency session.
