CAMHLAB is an ongoing artist-in-residence initiative that gives the Museum to artists. CAMHLAB supports artists working within, and in partnership with, the Museum to develop new work and ideas. Launched immediately following CAMH’s interior renovations in fall 2020, the residency was established in response to effects of COVID-19, particularly the loss of Houston-area performance and rehearsal space, to make CAMH’s galleries safely available for large-scale production and experimentation. Through both short-term residencies within the Museum and long-term collaborations with artists, CAMHLAB offers critical and early-stage direct support of artists’ process and production of new work.
As CAMH’s galleries are currently closed to the public, artists-in-residence have full access to the Museum; each resident’s process will become public through a limited audience performance, a live stream, exterior project, or a form appropriate to the artist’s specific practice. As with all CAMH public programs, CAMHLAB residencies safely connect artists and audiences through catalytic and unexpected experiences of contemporary art.
