More about the Residency
The residency offers each artist a private studio space throughout the duration of the program, and a stipend of $37,500 paid out over the course of the residency.
Artists are required to engage with their studio practice for twenty hours per week at a minimum. A selection of artworks made by the artists throughout the course of the residency will be featured in a culminating exhibition.
Over the course of the residency program, artists are required to participate in the Museum’s annual Open Studios, a number of public programs and educational studio visits, and a rigorous engagement with the Museum's Curatorial Department and other Museum departments.
Artists cannot be in school or committed to another residency while in the Studio Museum Artist-in-Residence program.
Artists should apply to the residency with the understanding that they may be asked to work remotely. As the Museum remains committed to the health and safety of the artists in residence and staff, the Museum reserves the right to establish a remote residency, if necessary, at any point throughout the residency period.
Artists should be prepared to follow appropriate COVID-19 safety regulations in accordance with CDC guidelines.
