New York City Artist Residency Award






Dedicated to bringing art from elsewhere to New York, NOoSPHERE Arts’ international team of artists and curators keeps seeking new ways to accomplish our goal: to offer the U.S. audience access to current art from other countries and to bring creative people together for artistic cross-pollination and transnational collaborations.

NOoSPHERE Arts’ current presentation platforms include Mothership NYC, a live-work space with a huge outdoor stage in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Also founded and run by NOoSPHERE Arts’ director, this community of international creatives has a complementary mission: “to support and promote artists across multiple disciplines through residencies, public shows and collaborative opportunities; build sustainable transnational artist networks; and help retain creative forces in New York City.”

In collaboration with the Mothership Crew, we are pleased to offer the annual grant program NOoSPHERE Arts Residency Award: Once a year, we provide a month-long residency free of charge to one talented international artist or curator. Selected by a committee of peers, the award winner will spend their time on board Mothership NYC developing a creative project for presentation to the NYC audience under the aegis of NOoSPHERE Arts.

We are open to all media, but the private workspace onboard Mothership is most suitable for the following disciplines: visual art, painting, drawing, writing, film, theater, dance, performing arts, filmmaking, animation, new media, and curatorial. This opportunity is open to artists of all nationalities.

The resident stays in private living quarters in our live-work community housing 5-6 artists total.
The private workspace comes with a desk, easel, bare walls to work on and WiFi. Kitchen, lounge, and bathrooms are shared. For pictures of the space, please see

Financial Support:
The award winner receives one month’s free accommodation in private live-work space. We will also cover the reception costs and assistance with logistics for awardee’s final show. Travel costs, art supplies and living expenses are award winner’s own responsibility.

Residency Programming:
~ For our monthly salons, we invite fellow artists and other creatives/cultural workers for an open-air art party/intimate indoor gathering  where residents present their work to a very receptive audience of local artist peers and other arts professionals and appreciators.
~ We occasionally host artists' dinners for our international and NYC-based creative colleagues
~ During the warm months, we use our roof deck as a stage for creative productions across several disciplines
~ Collaborative productions can potentially also be hosted on our sister platform, Last Frontier NYC and/or the surrounding rooftop stages  against a backdrop of the Manhattan Skyline
~ An open studio event may be organized during your stay, including participation in the neighborhood-wide, Greenpoint Open Studios weekend

Applications are open to visual artists, writers, curators, performance artists, designers, musicians, theatre-makers and researchers who work either individually or collaboratively. Individuals and groups are welcomed. The Museum of Loss and Renewal actively encourages interdisciplinary applications from creative collectives/groups who work across disciplines.

The impact on residents’ practices is profound, generously expressed by Emily Fong as “This period has reminded me of my passion and vision for creative systems and interdisciplinary collaboration. In my practice, I am in Collemacchia every day”. Fabien Marques’ relationship with Collemacchia and the region continues as his project develops, commenting “The residency triggered new perspectives in me as an artist and as a European citizen … (it) allowed me to question contemporary issues of identity, integration and homeland, and therefore reconnect my artistic practice to social commitment”.


An individual residency provides uninterrupted periods of time with no expectation of a final outcome. 


€320 per week. The Residency Programme is operated on a non-commercial cost-covering basis, and is financially supported by The Museum of Loss and Renewal in order to keep fees low. Typically, artists source funding to support fees, flights, production costs or other subsistence by applying to their national arts funding bodies, by personal fundraising, or through academic institutional support. Letters of invitation can be provided to assist in this process.

Residents are responsible for funding and organising their own travel, insurances and any visa requirements particular to country of origin. Detailed travel information will be supplied (closest airports Naples, Rome), and collection/drop-off at a local train station / intercity bus stop will be arranged for residents (minimal cost). 

A deposit of 50% will be required within three weeks of accepting a place on the residency programme. The remaining balance is payable in advance of the residency start date.
