Now Accepting Applications!

The Abrons Arts Center Artist-in-Residence Workspace Program provides
free studio space for visual artists for 11 months (beginning
September 2010). Painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors,
video, and installation artists work in collective, semi-private
studios at the Abrons Arts Center, located at 466 Grand Street on
Manhattan's Lower East Side. A clay artist works in a separate
shared space adjacent to our ceramics studio. The AIR Workspace
Program hosts an annual Open Studios event each year and provides a
range of career development opportunities, including exhibition
opportunities and studio visits with numerous visiting artists,
critics, and curators.

NEW for 2010: Curatorial Residency
This year the Abrons is expanding our residency program to accommodate
one curatorial resident. The awarded applicant will receive an office
and the opportunity to curate at least three shows in the on-site
exhibition spaces. The resident will also have individual meetings
with critics, curators, and artists who visit the program each year.
A curatorial advisory board will be formed for the resident in order
to foster an ongoing dialogue for his or her individual writing and
exhibition interests.
