Fulcrum Incubator recognizes the critical need for support for artists to conduct deep research in collaboration with established laboratories and scientific research institutions. The initiative is designed as an open-ended research residency to help artists develop possibilities to work in new ways through access to processes and approaches normally out-of-reach in the studio setting. Simultaneously, the residencies help the scientific community realize new concepts for interpretation and visualization of data, creative thinking, and public communication within and beyond their field.
Fulcrum Incubator is currently by nomination/invitation only, and host institutions vary from year to year.
The Fulcrum Incubator has been made possible with generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Perenchio Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the Pasadena Art Alliance.
