#ArtSeeksHer: BRIC Visual Artist Residency [Summer Residency]

BRIC Visual Artist Residency TIMELINE:
Application period: FEBRUARY 5-27, 2015
Notification to artists: MARCH 24, 2015
Residency: JUNE 22 – AUGUST 14, 2015 (8 weeks)

This summer, BRIC will hold its second annual Visual Artist Residency program. Similar to last year, two residents will have space in the Artists Studio at BRIC House. In addition, BRIC is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Saint Anne’s School to provide additional studio space for one resident at 33 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, the former space of BRIC Rotunda Gallery!

  • ARTIST STUDIO AT BRIC HOUSE:  This is a flexible space on the ground floor that is used for creating, rehearsing, exhibiting, and performing across multiple disciplines. This 1,400 square-foot room measures 27’ x 52’ and has a 12-foot ceiling height.  It will be partitioned for use by two artists during the residency.  Artists in residence will have access to their studios daily from 8am to midnight.
  • 33 CLINTON STREET: The residency at 33 Clinton Street is aimed at artists who are able to work independently and can responsibly take care of this space.  The artist working at this space will be responsible for opening up and disarming the alarm in this facility daily, along with locking up and  setting the alarm each night, as they come and go. The artist’s hours may therefore be flexible. Proposals for this location should explain the need for a space of this size (approx 700-sq-feet).  Priority will be given to artists whose proposals will have a low impact on the space.  In explaining your work plan, also make note of steps to be taken to care for the space.

Space will be provided to selected residents free of charge; no honoraria or artists fees are offered.  The residency is open to both New York area artists as well as those from other parts of the United States who wish to spend time and work in the city. Please be advised that we are unable to fund travel or living expenses.  Applicants must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.

Artists who are accepted into the program must commit to using their studio a significant amount of time each week.

During the residency, artists will be expected to engage with the public through open studio events, an informal illustrated talk on BRIC’s stoop, or through other forms of audience engagement.

BRIC will provide exposure for your work through multiple means, including studio visits with BRIC’s curatorial staff and profiles to be published on BRIC’s website or Blog.

This residency is available to professional, practicing artists and MFA students.

Selection criteria:

This residency is open to emerging artists who demonstrate much promise, and to mid-career artists with a documented record of exhibitions and other accomplishments.  We seek artists who will be able to work independently and productively during the eight-week period (June 22 – August 14, 2015) and who have a solid plan of work for their residency period.

Because BRIC House is a public space with many visitors and activities each week, we will select artists in residence whose work involves little or no noise, no fumes or toxic materials, and who require only moderate access to water (there is a public bathroom near the Artist Studio and a utility sink in the loading dock area, but no sink in the studio spaces).

A panel consisting of BRIC’s curatorial staff, Gallery Manager, and past Residency artists will select this summer’s Residents.

To Apply:
The application process for the 2015 BRIC Visual Artist Residency is now OPEN. The deadline to apply is February 27, 2015.
