The Crit Lab 2019 Residency was a great success! Our time at the Venice Biennale and our partnership with RUC Residency in the beautiful Italian Alps were inspiring, filled with great art, food, wine and gorgeous landscape. Watch for news about 2020! 
The Crit Lab Residency will spend July 2-6 in Venice for the 2019 Venice Biennale, then travel together for a Residency at RUC from July 6-14. This will be an intimate group of  artists and companions. After a whirlwind trip to the Biennale, we will enjoy quiet time at RUC away from the tourist crowds- creating art, visiting local UNESCO sites. The weather will be lovely, we will eat from their garden, and meet for food, conversation, and critique in the beautiful Valcomonica Valley.

Martin Puryear will represent the United States at the Biennale, this alone makes it worth the trip! Updates on the Biennale to follow.
