Program Description

Currently, the self-structured residency lasts from 1, 2, or 3 months and includes a bedroom and adjoining studio for contemporary visual artists to make work, connect with other artists, spaces, galleries, curators, and others and explore Los Angeles. Current residency fees (without fellowship award) are set at $1,650 US per month for residencies beginning 2020. Eastside International (ESXLA) is an artist-run contemporary visual art kunsthalle and international artist residency based in Los Angeles, California, directed by artist Jason Ramos. Founded in 2014 by Ramos and artists Michelle Carla Handel and Molly Shea, Eastside International’s artist in residence program hosts up to five visual artists to live, work, and immerse themselves in the Los Angeles art community. ESXLA’s parallel exhibition program features the work of local, national, and international emerging and established artists in a non-commercial, alternative venue.
