Every year, the Core Residency Program at the Glassell School of Art awards residencies to artists and critical writers, culminating in the spring with an exhibition and yearbook.

The 2023 Core Exhibition features work by the 2022–2023 artists-in-residence: Bryan Castro, Saúl Hernández-Vargas, Erin Holland, Yifan Jiang, Jagdeep Raina, and Fred Schmidt-Arenales. This year’s Core critics-in-residence, Valentin Diaconov and Karen Schiff, have contributed essays to the 2023 Core Yearbook.

The exhibition is installed on all three floors of the Glassell School of Art. On the third floor, Valentin Diaconov has curated Contact Personalities, featuring the work of Karen Schiff and the Core artists.
