FLUX FACTORY in high gear: reaching out to writers & visual artists

Funded Residencies for Culturally Underserved Artists

Flux Factory is excited to expand its artists-in-residence program by offering two fully-funded six-month residencies to culturally underserved emerging artists who demonstrate financial need.

We’re looking for artists, community members, and friends who enjoy being part of a wonderful and prolific social milieu. The residency is perfect for artists who have a focused practice, but revel in sharing it with others in a vibrant environment. In addition to providing a venue for personal production, Flux Factory also functions as a collective taking on a number of exhibitions and projects all in which its artists-in-residence are encouraged to participate.

The residencies will run from July 1, 2011 until December 31, 2011. While our program has many international artists, artists living in the New York area will take priority for this opportunity. All residents have the chance to have a show in our gallery space, organize their own programming, and have a voice in planning future programming that will help sustain the organization as a whole.

These two six-month residencies are made possible by the Edward & Sally Van Lier Fund from the New York Community Trust.

For more information or to apply, please visit our Wooloo page by February 15, 2011.
