KODA: Artist Residency Open Call Fall 2021 (Land + Environment)


With Funding
Free / No Costs
New York, United States


KODA’s residency program is targeted to mid-career artists working in all media and creating conceptual and socially engaged work. While the term “mid-career” is up to interpretation, we consider artists having a significant body of works spanning several years, with min. 10 years of experience as professional artist, and previous solo exhibitions nationally and internationally, as “mid-career”. They are often without current gallery representation. KODA does not provide housing, transportation, or visa sponsorship. We do not accept applications from students currently enrolled in school. We do not require a BA, MA, BFA, or MFA. We do not yet accept applications from collectives/collaborative groups. We require the artist to devote a minimum of 20 hours per month to the residency. We require artists-in-residence to participate in open studios at least once during their residency term. We require artists-in-residence to attend monthly residency meetings. You must be 30+ years

Number of Participants

2 individual artists will be selected.
