Marwen Lab Exhibition

Main Gallery, 2nd Floor & Loggia

This exhibition showcases independently driven projects that Lab residents created this past year. The Lab residency is a year-long immersive program that supports young artists in developing their arts practice and fosters a creative, collaborative community of emerging young artists.


Moments of Identity: Map Residency Exhibition

Third Floor Gallery

This exhibition showcases the work of alumni artist residents who participated in the Map Residency in 2022. The Map (Marwen Alumni Practice) Program is a 4-week residency for 3 artists who are alumni of Marwen’s programs. The program centers the artistic development of Marwen alumni, with studio space and relationship building with other artists and professionals. This year, the work of the Map residents centers personal histories and connections to their communities and environments.

Both exhibitions will run through August 5, 2022.
