About the program
The NYC Residency Program for international artists has three iterations—Fall, Winter, and Spring—and forms the heart of Amant’s Brooklyn complex and is the central focus of all our in-house activities. Four artists’ studios enable practitioners to pursue their individual artistic goals while also being closely integrated into the organization’s wider community programming during their three-month New York City visit.
Amant takes pride in hosting artists at all stages of their careers and across a wide array of disciplines from the visual arts, literature, performance, filmmaking, and cultural theory with the singular belief that exchanging ideas and experiences about art production will enhance everyone’s work. The residents are actively encouraged to participate in workshops, presentations, and discussions in pursuit of that aim.
Amant is also committed to providing our 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. We hope that such advice and help may aid and abet their artistic practices. But above all else, Amant is steadfastly committed to providing residents with the time and support to explore and experiment within their practices.
Artists are invited to participate in the residency or selected through an open call based on a research proposal. Amant releases a call for applications once a year, during which time applications are accepted.
