OPEN CALL – NARS Residency Program

The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation is currently accepting applications from U.S.-based artists for three month residencies to take place from July-Sep 2017 and Oct-Dec 2017. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2017.

The NARS residency program 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 hosts exhibitions year-round.
