ART EXPLORA– Cité internationale des arts:
The Art Explora foundation, in collaboration with the Cité internationale des arts, welcomes every year about twenty residents, artists and researchers from all over the world. This programme offers the possibility for artists and researchers to carry out research and creation work in the heart of Paris, in connection with the French artistic and professional scene. The residents’ work focuses on the theme of scientific and technological exploration and confronts the major social and environmental issues of our time.
AMANT STUDIO & RESEARCH RESIDENCY PROGRAM:
The Studio & Research Residency Program in NY awards artists from around the world with research-oriented residencies in its campus in Brooklyn. Following Amant’s aim of slowing-down the art-making process, we provide artists with space, resources, and guidance to support long-term research projects and archival work. Our program welcomes experimental practices in visual arts, cultural theory, performance, filmmaking, and writing.
BAXTER ST RESIDENCY:
Each year, Baxter St at CCNY invites emerging lens-based artists living in New York City to apply for the Baxter St Residency Program. This residency offers lens-based artists much-needed workspace in New York City as well as access to the Baxter St at CCNY community and programs.
Our residents shall have free use of the facilities and equipment at Baxter St at CCNY and a secondary photo lab with darkroom and printer access for the duration of the Residency during respective hours of operation if needed. Residents receive a monthly stipend appropriate to our W.A.G.E. certification level during the three months of workspace access as well as an additional production fee to realize your exhibition.
Each resident will be granted a solo exhibition at Baxter St at CCNY after their term of residency. Residents will also be part of our robust programming, including a public conversation, a video interview, and a one-on-one meeting with an Art Advisory Committee Member.
SMACK MELLON ARTIST STUDIO:
The Artist Studio Program was launched in 2000 in response to the crisis of available affordable space for artists living and working in New York City. The program provides six eligible artists working in all visual arts media a free private studio space accessible 24/7 and a fellowship (dependent on funding). The 2032-2024 program begins September 1, 2023 and ends August 15, 2024. The studios are located on the lower level of our building at 92 Plymouth Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn and range in size from 250 to 300 square feet. The program does not provide living space.
BERNHEIM’S ARTIST PROGRAM:
For over four decades, the Artist in Residence program has attracted artists from around the world who seek to use Bernheim as their inspiration. Established in 1980, this internationally renowned program annually awards artists the opportunity to live and create site specific work inspired by their total immersion experience in the natural environment. The work created through this program allows our visitors to experience nature in new and exciting ways while enhancing awareness of Bernheim’s mission of connecting people to nature. In 2021, we expanded the program to include an Environmental Artist in Residence that encourages artists to examine environmental issues and severity of the climate crisis to promote dialogue and positive change for the natural environment and world at large.
In exchange for comfortable rustic housing, access to studio space, financial and staff support for the development of new work, artists will create a site-inspired artwork, temporary installation or project as a donation to the Bernheim Foundation. Recipients are also asked to engage the public with their work and/or process while in residence.
MOAB ARTS RE-USE RESIDENCY:
MARR’s mission is to challenge the perception of waste culture by providing a unique platform for artists at the intersection of art, community, and waste systems. The Moab area is highly impacted by the tourism industry and, as a result, waste management. By facilitating artists’ direct engagement with the waste stream, MARR encourages resident artists to consider their studio practice through the lens of sustainability and to thoughtfully re-assess their processes of material sourcing and waste disposal.
Through a 4-week residency, the program offers artists studio space, project and community facilitation, a $1500 stipend, access to unlimited materials at local waste disposal sites, and the time and space to focus solely on their art. As a component of each residency, artists spend time providing opportunities for learning, dialog and enrichment within the community.
