Sama Alshaibi was chosen as the recipient of the Spring 2019 International Artist-in-Residence program by Artpace San Antonio, Texas.
Three times a year, Artpace invites a guest curator to choose three artists to live and create art in San Antonio for two months. Each residency cycle includes one international, one national, and one Texas-based artist. Sama Alshaibi was chosen as the national artist and will be in residence till 25 March with the goal of producing a new series of photographs, a video, and sculpture. The mission of the program is to provide artists with unparalleled resources that enable them to experiment with new ideas, take provocative risks, and realize innovative and ambitious new work. Alshaibi's body of work created during the residence program will be curated by Deborah Willis and exhibited from 21 March - 12 May, 2019 at Artpace.
