For Your Reference

Each New York Amant Studio & Research resident gets the opportunity to organize a For Your Reference evening in which they share their way of thinking, interpreting, and sensing.

For the occasion, the residents bring in a single reference—whether a film, a book, a person, an architecture, a plant, a word, or an art project—not created by them but through which they show their current interests and methods of working. A first part of the evening consists in a slow, in-depth sharing of the reference, which is then followed by an open, unscripted conversation.
