Immediate artist-in-residence opportunity at RAID Projects, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Bedroom with attached studio space available from Sept 1st - Jan 31st.
RAID Projects offers a bedroom and adjoining studio for a contemporary visual artist to come to Los Angeles, make new work, network with commercial galleries and curators, and explore Los Angeles. The current fee is $1,300 US per month. RAID hosts a regular contemporary exhibition program, as well as other related events. A community of artists live and work in the shared facility, and has been in continual operation for over a decade.
RAID's AIR program will be ending in early 2014, but we have one final spot to fill before then. The AIR accommodations are for working artists; the facility is operated out of a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony.
The AIR program at RAID is artist-run, semi-communal and cooperatively operated with common living room, kitchen, WC, and shower facilities shared by the resident artists and full time residents who live and work under it's roof. The full time resident artists, including the director, all financially contribute to the costs of running RAID Projects and all work is entirely volunteer based.
The costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help cover all the maintenance, overhead, and exhibition program, and are shared by the artist-directors and studio rentals. RAID Projects is an artists-run space for the making of art and is not recommended for artists expecting luxury accommodations, preferential treatment, or a vacation resort experience.
The downstairs space is approximately: Bedroom - 14.5 x 11 feet. (3.5 x 4.5 meters) Studio - 14.5 x 22 feet. (4.5 x 6.5 meters). Ceiling height is 12 feet. (3.5 meters) The space is currently available from Sept 1st, 2013 - Jan 31st, 2014. Potential residents may apply for the full time or part; residents wishing to start immediately will be given preference. No pets, live music, or use of overly-hazardous materials will be permitted. A deposit in the amount of $1,300 will be required to secure the residency once accepted, to be refunded up to 30 days after the end of the residency, if all residency terms and conditions have been met.
TO APPLY: Please email a single PDF that includes statement of purpose, full CV/resume, images of previous work, and artist statement. Any press materials, two letters of reference and some proof of funding in regards to residency fees is highly recommended for full consideration. Please send all materials as email attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
