2020 NYC-Based Artist Residency
Residency Unlimited (RU) is pleased to announce an Open Call for residencies for NYC-based artists.
RU welcomes artists working in all disciplines and across media, who represent a range of diversity present in NYC communities that are underrepresented in the arts. RU is interested in the work of individual artists whose work is process-based and geared towards filling gaps in historical knowledge. Four artists will be selected from applications reviewed by a jury of arts professionals together with RU staff. *Applicants must live in one of NYC’s five boroughs*
Residency Unlimited (RU) is a non-profit arts organization that supports the creation, presentation, and dissemination of contemporary art through its unique residency program and year-round public programs. Located within a former South Congregational Church in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, RU is a multifunctional space, acting as a hub and meeting place for RU’s various community activities and public programs, including, talks, screenings, performances, and exhibitions. Here, artists and curators in residence meet with RU staff, conduct research, and at times produce work.
Four artists will join RU for a three-month residency from April 13 - July 12, 2020, with a one-week group exhibition the final week of June.
Application Deadline: February 14, 11:59 pm EST
