WPA offers many programs on an ongoing basis in our effort to provide meaningful support and opportunities for artists in the region. Read more about the workshops, talks, exhibitions, and other continuing opportunities for artists here:
Initiated in 2009, WPA’s Information Exchange program (InfoEx) brings international curators in residence at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in Brooklyn, NY to Washington, DC to present their recent and upcoming projects in a public forum and to meet with local artists and curators on a one-on-one basis. By bringing international curators to DC, WPA hopes to initiate challenging conversations and create a forum for artists and curators to engage with each other’s work.
InfoEx 2012 is made possible by the generosity of UBS Financial Services
Coup d’Espace is WPA’s member-generated programming series. By inviting member artists and curators to plan installations, exhibitions, and events in its office project space, WPA provides a venue for unusual collaborations, exploration of new concepts, and the production of new and experimental work. Coup d’Espace allows artists and curators to utilize the WPA office as a laboratory or workshop space, to introduce new and in-process projects, and present challenging ideas.
Professional Practices (previously No Artist Left Behind)
From its inception, WPA has been an artist service organization. The Professional Practices Series, previously called No Artist Left Behind, offers workshops that teach artists business skills, provide valuable career and practical advice, and expose them to new skills and techniques that can help them grow or refine their artistic practice. WPA strives to offer information that goes beyond the basics and addresses the needs of artists at every phase of their career. WPA’s Professional Practices workshops are always free to WPA members.
