"Although NARS selects a limited number of artists through rolling-admissions, year round, subject to availability, we encourage you to apply through the 2-3 annual open calls to be considered for the International Studio Residency program."

The NARS International Artist Residency Program supports emerging and mid-career artists. The program is open to both International and US-Based artists, creating an international artistic dialogue and exchange.

The NARS International Artist Residency Program offers 24/7 access to 280 – 325 sq ft studio spaces in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As a studio based residency, the focus is on practice within the studio and the experimentation and exploration that results from creating new work. Residency artists benefit from our community driven program and the ongoing dialogue between fellow residency artists. Residents also have the advantage of working alongside emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. While experimenting and creating new work in the studio, artists are encouraged to engage with the public and share new work through public events, artist presentations, group outings and tours, and studio visits with curators, gallerists, and arts administrators. These personal one-on-one studio visits provide intimate space and time to form connections and expand networks. Connections formed during studio visits have resulted in future exhibition opportunities and collaborations for artists during and after they have finished their residency at NARS.

The residency program culminates in a group exhibition at the NARS Foundation Gallery and/or an Open Studio event that is open to the general public. Open Studios are held in March and September, and exhibitions are held in May and November.

The NARS Foundation continues to promote Residency Alumni once the residency program has been completed through social media and the NARS website. Additional exhibitions are also hosted offsite which include work by current Residents and Alumni.

Please note: The studio is a work space only – housing is NOT provided.

International and US based artists are encouraged to apply through the 2 annual open calls. NARS selects a limited number of International artists through rolling-admissions per year, subject to availability.
