The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation Artist in Residency Program supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies. The program is open to both International and US-Based artists, creating a shared space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time.

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or shared studio spaces (250 – 300 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 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 can introduce and share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances.

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.

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

For additional information or questions, please contactapplications@narsfoundation.org

International Applicants may apply for three-month and six-month residencies. Three month residencies are the length of one season, and six-month residencies will span across two seasons. For residencies longer than six months, please contact us prior to submitting an application. If you are an international artist residing in the US, you are eligible to apply as a US Based applicant.

International applicants may apply during open calls as well as year round through our rolling admissions application.

Our current open call is open from August 24th to October 15th at 11:59 PM. Apply here.

PROGRAM FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS: The three-month residency costs $6,000, and the six-month residency costs $10,000. The studio is a work space only – housing is NOT provided. Artists who need additional funding and support for program fee, travel, materials, visa, and accommodations should apply to other funding sources. If selected to be part of the program, the international applicant has the option to defer the start of his/her residency for up to six seasons (one and a half years). Please note that only U.S.-based artists are eligible for the Full and Partial Residency Fellowships at this time. A list of organizations that have funded international residencies can be found here.

The International Residency Program is conducted in the English language. Applicants should be proficient in English to participate and benefit from the program.

NARS currently offers three-month Full or Partial Fellowship residencies to U.S.-based applicants.

PROGRAM FEES FOR US Based APPLICANTS: NARS International Artist Residency Program awards Full and Partial Residential Fellowships for three months for artists who are based in the U.S. A Full Fellowship covers the entire cost of the residency program. Artists who receive the Partial Fellowship are responsible for a program fee of $1,500 which can be paid in monthly installments. On the application form, please indicate whether you wish to be considered for both the Full and Partial Fellowships or only the Full Residency Fellowship. The studio is a work space only. Artists who need additional funding and support for partial fellowships, travel, materials and accommodations should apply to other sources.

What sort of opportunities will I have to present my work to the public during my residency term?
The NARS residency offers artists multiple opportunities to introduce and share work through Artist Talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. 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.

How many studio visits will I expect to receive during my residency?
On average, residency artists will receive 4 -6 studio visits per month by curators, critics, art historians and gallerists. Complete list of past visitors can be found below.

What else does the NARS residency offer?
In addition to the above mentioned studio visits and public presentations, our staff of experienced curators and artists, is available to provide technical assistance and support your projects development through to public presentation. Weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together, are designed to form a community, foster cultural and exchange of artistic practices and ideas among residency and studio artists, and provide exposure to New York based artists and art institutions.

What are the residency terms dates ? International applicants may choose to stay between three-month and six-month terms that start in January, April, July, and October of each year. US based artists are limited to a three-month residency term with no option to extend or defer.

Is the studio a work/live space or will I need to find accomodations when relocating to New York? The studio is a workspace only. Artists are responsible for their own housing. Those who may need additional funding and support for housing accommodations should apply to other supplemental sources.

I work with film / photography / clay / wood. Are there facilities and equipment within the NARS studios to work with these materials? There are no special facilities or equipment provided by NARS. We offer a 24/7 accessible studio space with a worktable, chair and internet access. The artist will be responsible for providing all the equipment or materials needed for projects created throughout the duration of the residency. We are glad to refer you to the abundant artist resources and facilities in the Brooklyn and greater New York area. Residents are offered access to Materials for the Arts during the residency.
