Artists of all visual art disciplines - painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation, new media - will be considered for below-market rate studio spaces to produce new work and make use of resources needed to support their creative practice. Studios will be accessible 10am to 10pm, 7 days a week for 1 year with a second year renewal option. These non-living studios, in an open plan with windows in each unit, vary in size from 250 to 400 sq ft. Artists will have the opportunity to present their work to curators and critics and to be exposed to a broader general audience during annual open Studios events. Residency participants will be encouraged to engage with students and community program participants throughout the year.
Artists will be selected based on their portfolio of work, statement of intent, and an expressed interest to work within the Bronx community. Applicants will be reviewed by a diverse independent selection panel composed of artists, curators and arts professionals. The program is seeking artists with a developed studio practice and who are not enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. BRAC does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation.
Occupancy is projected by October 1, 2020. Circumstances related to COVID-19 could affect this projection and/or the terms of this residency.
