2021 Artist-in-Residency Open Call




The 2021 Flux Factory Artist-in-Residence Open Call is EXTENDED! The deadline is now Monday, December 14th @11:59 PM EST.

2020 has been a complicated and challenging year for all of us, including Flux Factory. To ensure the safety of our community, we have not invited any new residents since we shut down in March. By adhering to public health guidance about how to be together safely, we are excited to be able to invite a limited number of new Artists-in-Residence to join the Flux Factory family in 2021.

In 2021, we are inviting artists for residencies of 3 – 6 months, including artists, curators, community organizers, urban agriculturalists, educators, builders, game designers and musicians and more.

The Flux Factory Residency grew organically out of a DIY artist’s collective founded in 1994 in an old spice factory in Brooklyn and is now happily nestled in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, New York.

Each resident will be given unrestricted access to a private studio space. Additionally, they can utilize the wood-shop, print-shop, tech equipment and other shared spaces. Artists-in-Residence are also the originators of Flux Factory’s programming, including most of Flux Factory exhibitions and public programs. All residents are given an allotted amount of days in the gallery to have a solo show, curate a group show, host a panel or forum or use it as extra studio space. Each year we have four month-long exhibitions curated by Residents and other Fluxers, as well as an annual Artists-In-Residence exhibition.

Monthly fees for studios of $600-$1000 a month are required. Flux Factory will write letters of invitation for grants and other funding opportunities, and share opportunities for additional resources if available.
