LMCC is shifting its guidelines for the Workspace program to be more responsive to the multi- and interdisciplinary ways in which artists work. We seek to create a welcoming, diverse, and dynamic cohort of individuals working across disciplines, including but not limited to visual arts, film, performance art, social practice, design, digital media, and the literary arts.
Workspace is a good fit for applicants who are:
Generating new and original work and engaged in a contemporary dialogue
Seeking to foster a rigorous practice by dedicating time and focus to the creative process
In need of studio space in which to experiment and develop new work
Seeking a community of peers to engage in creative and professional dialogue over nine months in Lower Manhattan
Seeking to make connections with a network of curators, critics, and other arts professionals working in and around New York City
Interested in opportunities to share in-progress work with audiences
Artists who work independently or as a collaborative pair (no more than 2) are eligible to apply. Eligible collaborative applicants should submit one application and a joint biography and resume that demonstrate a history of collaboration.
International artists are eligible for this program. Please note that LMCC offers studio space only, NOT living space. If accepted, international participants are responsible for their own visa, travel, living, and housing expenses and arrangements. LMCC can only offer minimal assistance to international residents in securing necessary immigration documents. The small stipend/materials fee will not be sufficient for living expenses.
Applicants need not identify solely with one discipline to apply; applicants will be able to select as many disciplines applicable to their practice on the application, and will be offered options to submit different types of work samples (images, text, and/or links).
