Call for applications – The Luminary Residency in 2016, Saint Louis, United States
The Luminary Residency Program supports exceptional emerging artists, curators and critics engaging the world of contemporary art by providing dedicated time and a supportive working environment. The program is open to all artistic, curatorial and critical practices but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and socially engaged practices.
The Luminary staff work closely with each resident to facilitate the space, knowledge and collaborative opportunities (with artists, curators, local residents and other organizations) necessary for their work. Residents are provided free housing, studios, stipends and opportunities for public engagement such as exhibitions, lectures, studio visits and workshops.
Residencies are available year-round from one week up to three months. Please note that the program is not active in August or December.
Applications are now open and due Tuesday, September 1 for all 2016 residencies.
