Artspace invites emerging and mid-career artists from all fields to apply for our one year Artist in Residence program. The dates of the residency run from June 1, 2014 through May 31, 2015. During this time the Artist-in-Residence will have 24/7 access to a small private studio located in the back of Artspace. The studio is separate from our offices and exhibition space, but in close proximity to all that goes on at Artspace.
The studio and includes free wifi, access to Artspace's kitchen (refrigerator, stove, microwave, tea kettle), additional secure storage (in Artspace's large underground space). This is not a living space and we do not compensate room and board, though we can help you find a living space within the bustling community of working artists. The studio has a 14' x 9' plywood-backed sheetrock wall, track lights, slop sink and separate entrance. The second entrance is accessible by a private driveway where vehicles can unload large or heavy artworks, objects and equipment.
Solo Exhibition and Exchange
The residency will culminate in a solo exhibition of the work creating during the year. Artists may choose to produce a print-on-demand publication, film screening or program series in place of this exhibition.
In exchange for our support of your work, we ask that you contribute to the Artspace team by working the equivalent of 30 hours/ month. Duties will reflect the capacities, areas of interest and expertise of each Artist-in-Residence, but may include: assisting with installations, gallery sitting, staffing an opening reception or event and/or helping to organize our archives.
We invite and encourage our Artist-in-Residence to get involved in our public programs, special event series and education initiatives. The Artist-in-Residence will also be invited to serve on the VAC (Visual Arts Committee), an elected board of ten working artists and arts professionals based in and around New Haven, who will help introduce and integrate the Artist-in-Residence into New Haven's art scene and community.
