2017 NARS International Residency Artist Open Call

2017 NARS International Residency Artist Open Call

Deadline March 1, 2017

The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation is pleased to announce the Artist in Residency Program Open Call for international and US-based artists. The NARS residency supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies, creating a space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time.

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or semi-private studio spaces (280-325 sq ft) in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As a studio based residency, the focus is on the artistic process and the experimentation that results from working alongside other artists, within New York's cultural and sociopolitical context. 

Artists meet with 4-6 studio visitors each month, gaining invaluable feedback and
expanding their network of artists and professionals in NY and internationally.
Residents are provided with administrative, curatorial, and professional support to explore
and expand the scope of their artistic practice through
research, dialogue, and the production of new projects.

Public presentation opportunities include a curated exhibition in the NARS gallery, bi-annual Open Studios, and the Entree/Encore program, through which artists  share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. The NARS Gallery hostsexhibitions year-round.  

Residency artists benefit from a community driven program and ongoing dialogue with fellow residency artists through weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together. Residents also have the advantage of working alongside emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. The program and facilities are designed to form a community, foster the expansion, and exchange of artistic and cultural practices, and provide artists with exposure to New York and its art scene.

Accepting applications from International artists for a 3 or 6 month residency in 2017, spanning from October - December or in 2018 Seasons I, II, III, IV spanning from January – December, 2018.

Accepting applications from US based artists for a 3 month residency in Season III (July - September, 2017) or Season IV (October – December, 2017). US based applicants are eligible for full or partial fellowships.
