International/National Call for Applicants: The Queens Museum Studio Program (NY)
Deadline: May 21st, 2013
In October 2013, the Queens Museum will complete an expansion doubling the size of the museum. This expansion includes eight new studios in the Queens Museum’s north wing. We invite all artists to apply for a subsidized studio at the museum, available for one year, with a possible extension for a second year.
In designating permanent real estate to the long-term development of new work on-site, as well as to creating a community of artists, the Queens Museum aims to promote artists’ creative process and professional development.
Artists will have 24-hour access to their studios and the adjacent lounge area. The program will offer workspace and visibility, with open studios scheduled to coincide with exhibition openings at the Queens Museum. The new studio wing will also include a Public Art Studio with a 40′ wall visible by the public from a 2nd- floor mezzanine, which will be programmed independently.
Selection: Guest curator Regine Basha will launch the studio program’s first year and chair the selection process. The jury will include Queens Museum senior program staff; Daniel Bozhkov (artist); and Anthony Huberman (Director, The Artist Institute).
Restrictions: Because the studios are within the museum, there can be no use of toxic and combustible materials.
Artists in all locations invited to apply by May 21, 2013!
