Triangle Arts Association: Studio Residency

Studio-3-Triangle-Arts-Association-500x333 Location: DUMBO, Brooklyn, New York

Mission: Triangle Arts Association is a non-profit organization founded in 1982 to support international and U.S. visual artists. Triangle’s core initiatives—Residencies, Workshops, and Educational Programs—focus on dialogue, experimentation, and the creation of community around art. Triangle runs two main initiatives: a year-round Artist Residency Program in DUMBO, Brooklyn, as well as the biennial Triangle Artists’ Workshop, an intensive two week residency focused on peer learning. Both programs pair international artists with their New York colleagues, providing a dynamic environment for exchange.

Cost: Through our open call program free studio space is provided and residents are responsible for housing, travel, visa, materials, etc. Triangle’s staff can assist accepted artists with recommendations for accommodation or suggestions of outside funding opportunities to apply for. All residents are expected to spend a minimum of 15 hours a week working in their studio.

Application Fee: No application fee

Number of Artists: Number of artists-in-residence vary.

Accommodations: Although studio space is provided twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, free of charge, resident artists are responsible for all other expenses including housing, travel, materials and meals. In addition, artists are expected to spend a minimum of 15 hours a week working in their studio or will be asked to leave the program.

Length of Stay: Artists have the option to apply for a 3 or 6-month residency period:


3 months: June 1 2016 – August 31 2016

Medium: Artists working in any medium or discipline may apply.

Benefits: Beyond work space, regular gatherings, outings, public events, open studios, and visits from curators are organized. Administrative and peer support is provided for all participating artists. Unlike many other residency programs, Triangle does not emphasize professionalization or specific outcomes but rather allows artists space, context and community within which to focus on ideas, research and process.

Deadline: January 15, 2016

Applications are due by January 15, 2016 at 11:59 PM (EST) and all applicants will be notified of final decisions by March 1, 2016.
