The Location One International Residency Program’s unique structure allows emerging and mid-career artists to interact and converse with more established artists who are at the top of their career. This sort of discourse is at the heart of Location One’s philosophy of experimentation and collaboration. Artists are usually selected by our partner foundations and arts organizations who directly sponsor artists from their home countries. When logistically and financially possible, American artists are invited to participate and are proposed by Location One’s curatorial team.
Location One Artist-in-Residence Program Application Guidelines
Unlike most other residency programs Location One does not customarily offer a direct application process. Most participants in our Artist-In-Residence Program are selected by international cultural organizations who have partnered with Location One and provide funding for an artist from their respective countries. In an effort to accommodate artists who are interested in our residency program, but who are not associated with our current sponsoring organizations, we offer an alternative method to apply to our residency program. While we can’t guarantee a personal response to each submission, we will make every effort to review all submitted materials thoroughly and respond to potential candidates as quickly as possible.
Who is eligible?
Candidates for residencies must be working artists with at least three years of practice and some exhibition history. Students are not eligible.
Artists of any nationality, including American, are invited to apply. We currently do not have a financial sponsor for U.S. residents but we are always trying to secure this critical funding. We are grateful to The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the Rockefeller Bros. Foundation for their past support of our program.
How do I apply?
There is no application form or deadline. Location One’s operating year runs from September 1st to June 30th. A full-year residency comprises that ten-month period. Shorter residencies are five months in duration and begin on either September 1st or February 1st.
Who will review the work?
Location One convenes a curatorial panel to make final selections of candidates for the program. Panels base their decision on a) artistic merit, b) potential for artistic growth, and c) appropriateness of artistic work for the residency program. Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, we are not able to respond personally to each submission. If, upon review, we think an applicant would be a good match for our residency program, we will contact him or her and discuss possibilities for funding. No phone calls, please.
