We are pleased to announce the 2019 Residency Open Call for Artists Alliance Inc’s LES Studio Program. This application is for the following 2019 residency sessions: March 15 – June 14 (3 months), June 15 –September 14 (3 months), and March 1 September 14, 2019 (6 months).
Based in Lower Manhattan and supported by public funds, the LES Studio Program
provides free three and six-month residencies to under-represented, emerging and mid-career artists. Artists working across all disciplines are encouraged to apply for fully-funded shared studio space in the historic Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center in the heart of the Lower East Side.
The residency offers 24-hour access to a furnished studio, the opportunity to present work to curators and critics through AAI-organized studio visits, a curated exhibition at Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space (located inside the Essex Street Market), exposure to a broad general audience during bi-annual Open Studios, and monthly stipends (awarded to New York State residents only). Residencies are meant to facilitate experimentation, research, or production by providing much-needed space and time to residents. Applications are due by 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, November 25, 2018.
