APPLY NOW: INTERSTATE PROJECTS IN BROOKLYN LAUNCHES NEW STUDIO RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Artists from Detroit are encouraged to apply to Interstate Projects Studio Program in Bushwick, Brooklyn.  Interstate Projects is initiating a new studio residency program that will grant one artist a free 300 square foot studio space for a four-month period on site at the gallery. There are three residency periods that are open to artists based in the USA and internationally. This is an open submission residency that will be selected by a juried panel.

Interstate Projects Studio Program has been created to support artists in the face of unsustainable demands made by real estate and market effects on studio practices. Through this program, artists will have the opportunity to nurture experimentation and the conceptual incubation of ideas. This residency will give artists access to creative resources and networks in New York and its surrounding area through studio visits, critiques and introductions made through Interstate Projects’ network of peers.

Interstate Projects Studio Program is an expansion of the gallery’s mission to nurture, challenge and push artist’s abilities within a healthy and un-capitalized zone of experimentation.

PROGRAM DATES

There will be 3 residency periods every twelve months starting in April:

April 1st – July 31st, 2016 – Applications Due February 15th, 2016, 12pm EST
August 1st – November 30th, 2016 – Application date TBA
December 1st, 2016 – March 31st, 2017 – Application date TBA
