Women-in-Residence documents the histories and trajectories of women of color in the arts and culture fields. Artists, curators, musicians, producers, and art laborers of all stripes have had to discover their own paths to navigate societal and institutional roadblocks.
In this project, we highlight their presence and retrace their paths so that others can follow in their footsteps.
