Abrons Arts Center | Visual Arts AIRspace Residency

Abrons Arts Center annually supports four visual art residencies for New York City based artists. Residents receive a monetary award for their participation in the program, as well as a semi-private studio for nine months at the Abrons facility, located in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

Throughout the residency cycle, studio visits are arranged with critics, curators, artists and other arts-workers. Additionally, resident artists have opportunities to develop their teaching practices through participation in Abrons’ Engagement Program. The residency period culminates in a group exhibition in Abrons galleries.

Among the artists selected for the AIRspace program are painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, video and installation artists. Artists with interdisciplinary practices are also encouraged to apply. Residents are selected by a juried panel of professional artists, critics, curators, and Abrons Arts Center staff.
