Women-in-Residence is an archival database, to document the presence of Black, Indigenous, and of color women-identifying (BIWOC) artists and arts workers. These women take residence in museums, galleries, and in our communities, shaping and expanding the possibilities for care, criticality, and equity in the arts. Women-in-Residence seeks to document their histories and career trajectories to reveal the sources of support and hardship for women in the art world.
Search a network of contemporary BIWOC artists and arts workers whose work is largely underrepresented or documented. We highlight their presence and retrace their paths so that others can follow in their footsteps, learn of their significance early, and support their careers.
