2013 Sessions:
The 2013 PAIR Exhibition (scheduled in 2014) will be hosted by Hinterland Art Space, a Denver gallery which showcases cutting-edge art and fashion.

Jurors for Session 1 (April 30 – July 30):
​For this inaugural jurying for Powerhaüs Artists-in-Residence, Powerhaüs Studio are excited to announce our two distinguished jurors. Each will give a juror award in their discipline. They are the cutting-edge Executive Director of the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art David Dadone and the incomparable Mondo Guerra of Project Runway fame.

David Dadone
Executive Director Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art
David Dadone is the new cutting-edge executive director of Boulder’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Dadone moved to Colorado 8 years ago and began an incredible trek to his position at the BMoCA.

Mondo Guerra
Fashion Designer
Denver designer Mondo Guerra first endeared himself to an international audience in 2010 on Lifetime’s Project Runway season 8. His innovative style and bold designs have captured the imagination of the fashion world, while his courageous story has inspired global support surrounding his HIV/AIDS activism. Mondo returned to television in January 2012 on the debut season of Project Runway All Stars as one of 13 Runway veterans competing to prove they still have what it takes to rock the runway. In March 2012, Mondo emerged victorious from All Stars, claiming one of the largest prize packages in Runway history–which includes an exclusive collection at Neiman Marcus available in 2013.

Notification will be on April 18th, 2013. ​

5 finalists will be chosen to be interviewed by Powerhaüs Studio members. These interviews will either be held in person, over the telephone or via Skype. 4 applicants will be chosen, the PAIR in Visual Arts and Fashion and a runner-up in both categories.​ The runner-ups will be featured on the Powerhaüs Studio website and should the PAIR winner be unable to participate then the runner-up will be notified. Runner-ups will also be able to apply for the following session without being juried and will be included in the finalists for interview.

NOTE: This residency is not a live and work residency. We do NOT have living quarters available for recipients although we would do our best to help out-of-town recipients search for arrangements.
