TR:AFICC (Temporary Resident: Artists for Innovative Contemporary Culture)

This summer TRUCK is proud to introduce our new residency program, Temporary Resident: Artists for Innovative Contemporary Culture (TR:AFICC) that will be run out of CAMPER, TRUCK’s Contemporary Art Mobile Public Exhibition Rig. After three successful years of The Patch Project, CAMPER has been reinvented as a home away from home for artists, hosting three thematic residencies, with each lasting one month.   During the summer months these residencies will provide a space for artistic exploration and public engagement by three contemporary artists. Please join us this summer as we relaunch CAMPER, and get caught up in TR:AFICC!
