At the heels of a successful launch of a COVID-19 response program in 2020, LMCC will now turn our focus to the principal themes of equity and sustainability. Concurrent to Governors Island’s ambitious plans for addressing climate change and environmental issues in the long-term, LMCC is proud to join the effort in demonstrating the stake that artists must have in the timely issues.
This Open Call will provide short-term, project-based residencies to artists and creative practitioners whose work is concerned with the broader themes of equity and sustainability. These are thematic anchors which applicants may either choose to address explicitly or elaborate on how their practice and/or projects are relevant.
The residency will take place in the open plan studios at LMCC’s Arts Center at Governors Island in two sessions:
Session One: May 4 – August 20, 2021
Session Two: August 30 – December 17, 2021
