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. A community of artists live and work in Eastside’s facility, and the space has been in continual artist-run operation for more than 15 years. The AIR accommodations are for working artists; the facility is operated out of a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony. The AIR program at Eastside is artist-run, semi-communal, co-ed, and cooperatively operated with common areas, kitchen, WC and other facilities shared by the 5 resident artists and studio renters at the building. As per our artist-run, non-commercial mission, the costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help to cover all the overhead, maintenance, and exhibition programming.
