Workspace Program Residency

Dieu Donné
(New York NY)
Established in 1990, the Workspace Program provides annual residencies to New York State emerging artists to create new work in handmade paper. The program encourages emerging artists to explore the creative possibilities inherent in the hand papermaking process, to develop this medium as a contemporary art form, and also promotes the work produced in residency.

Workspace Resident artists will be selected by a panel and interview process. Each artist is paired with a master papermaker creating a unique collaborative experience where a new medium can be quickly learned and put into practice. Experimentation is highly encouraged throughout the residency.

The Workspace Program is open to emerging artists who live and work in New York State. Artists from all disciplinary and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Applications will not be accepted from students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate degree programs during the program year (July 2012 - June 2013). Applicants must be New York State residents and must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. Applications are only accepted via our online application; please do not mail or e-mail application materials.

Applicants will be asked to submit ten JPGs suitable for projection, a CV or resume, and to answer a few questions regarding their working process and how a residency at Dieu Donné might further their artistic practice.

The Dieu Donné Workspace Program residency includes introduction to the medium and process, 5 days in the studio with a dedicated papermaking collaborator, 2 papermaking workshops, an exhibition opportunity in the Dieu Donné ground floor gallery, and digital documentation of all the work created during the residency.
