About CEL

Launched in the spring of 2015, through funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, PICA’s Creative Exchange Lab is a residency program that promotes artistic exchange across disciplines, geographies, and fosters the development of new works. Reflecting a field-wide need for in-depth cross-disciplinary research opportunities for artists, the Lab offers essential generative time for research and experimentation, cross-disciplinary collaboration and dialogue between the participating local, national, and international artists.
