AIRspace Residency Program

The AIRspace program offers time-based residencies to emerging and mid-career artists and cross-disciplinary curators, providing free workspaces, opportunities to present/exhibit works-in-progress, and curate exhibits and performances in the Abrons’ galleries and theaters.

Visual Artists Residencies

The application deadline for the 2012-13 Studio Residency is May 1, 2012.

Each year the Abrons awards residencies to five visual artists.
Beginning each September, residents are provided a studio for 11 months within the Abrons facility. Throughout the residency, meetings and studio visits are also arranged with critics, curators, artists, and other art-workers. The program provides a range of career development opportunities throughout the residency, including educational work within the Abrons education and gallery programs, as well as an Open Studios weekend, and a culminating group exhibition. Among the artists selected for the AIRspace program are painters, printmakers, photographers, sculptors, and video and installation artists. Residents are selected by a juried panel of professional artists, critics, curators, and Abrons Arts Center staff.

Curatorial Residencies

The application deadline for the 2012-13 Curatorial Residency is May 1, 2012.

In 2010, AIRspace expanded to accommodate one curatorial resident who receives an office space and the opportunity to curate three shows in a variety of exhibition spaces at the Abrons Arts Center. The Abrons’
Visual Arts Director assists in the Curatorial Resident in the formation of a curatorial advisory board to foster an ongoing dialogue for the Resident’s individual writing and exhibition interests.

Speaking for real: this isn't a history painting, it's a book of stories. A book being written with stories like the ones you get told when you're getting your head chopped off—before going up there, or coming back from the show. Stories like they tell in museums.
This residency is addressed to participants willing to engage in speculative inquiry on the matter of exhibition, whether they work as artists, curators, or writers. The moment of exhibition will act as a figure towards which converge diverse spaces of authority (the studio, the exhibition space, criticism). The residency will thus be structured in as many points of enunciation, with individual studio and research time, public talks, and collective discussions enhanced by screenings and reading sessions.

Banff Artist in Residence (BAIR) Programs
Ongoing opportunities

Participants are provided with an individual studio accessible 24 hours a day, as well as use of Visual Arts facilities including printmaking, papermaking, ceramics, sculpture, and photography. BAIR offers short and long-term opportunities to work at a remove from the constraints of everyday life.
