Call for Applications: Inaugural International Studio Residency Program in NY. Amant Foundation





Amant Foundation is launching a call for applications for its NY Residency Program, a newly established international studio residency program beginning in September of 2021, with three iterations—Fall, Winter, and Spring. We host artists at all stages of their careers and across a wide array of disciplines from the visual arts, literature, performance, filmmaking, and cultural theory.

The program is committed to providing the residents with the full experience of living and working in New York by facilitating their connections to major institutions and key figures in the city’s world-renowned professional art scene. During their period at Amant, artists are expected to develop and promote their projects on their own terms. We also strongly encourage residents participate in Amant´s own on-going in-house programs and activities, especially through the sharing of ideas internally and publicly in various formats. Amant also highly values and promotes openness to cross-disciplinary conversations.

The Residency comprises:  

The Amant complex includes individual studios, exhibition galleries, a library/reading room, a café/bookstore as well as a fully outfitted performance space suitable for rehearsals and other activities. There is also a large communal meeting and dining area with access to a courtyard garden. The residency covers round-trip economy flights and airport transfers to NY and a monthly stipend to offset the costs of accommodation, transport, day-to-day expenses, and a research grant for executing projects. Please be advised the Amant studios are not residential.
