From April to September each year, BBATX curates a monthly residency highlighting the work of 10 to 15, Texas-based women and nonbinary visual and musical artists that create work and perform in our programs.

This year, join us at The Line Hotel Austin pool deck every first Thursday in April through September to enjoy art and a DJ set, celebrating the work of women artists in #BBATX’s 2019 residency. Dancing, swimsuits (optional) and it’s-almost-the-weekend behavior encouraged. :) 

Free and open to the public, every event in The Residency runs from 8 PM to 11 PM on The LINE Austin’s pool deck.

Beyond the monthly events from April to September, resident artists work with the #BBATX team and its collaborators to produce site-specific commissions and exhibitions within our programming.

Throughout the year, we also invite the public to learn more about the artists’ process, approach and the sustainability of their practice through various community events, exhibitions and collaborations, while resident artists apply their skills and expertise toward community issues.

About #bossbabesATX: We exist to build educated and empowered creative communities at the intersections of sisterhood and space. Through event series, showcases and personal/professional development programs, we amplify and connect women-identifying artists, creatives and entrepreneurs. Since we've been in operation, we've provided a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 300+ Texas-based women artists, 400+ women-owned businesses and women activists. We were selected by The White House to attend the United State of Women Summit in June 2016 and inducted into the City of Austin Hall of Fame in 2017. This series has been made possible in part by 2018 presenting partners Resplendent Hospitality.
