A Residency Intensive* is the annual appointment of a visiting artist in the Graduate Fine Arts Program at CCA. The overall aim is to generate a robust learning site where the intimacy, intellectual rigor, social engagement, and critical reflection of a private academic seminar merges with the urgency of facing the public sphere.

*The indefinite article “A” is a linguistic sign indicating the concept is open to change as ideas shift and fluctuate over time.
