Free / No Costs

We are looking specifically for Bay Area-based performance artists and collectives. Our goal is to give a platform to artists who have been hurt most by the pandemic, and, as this is our first open-call residency, we want to extend the invite to our local, Bay Area community.

Program Description

The selected artist(s) will use the house as their studio, have access to The David Ireland House archives and study center, and consult with curator Lian Ladia on their final project. The project can be a multimedia exhibition, a public intervention with the house and/or the surrounding neighborhood, or a presentation of their research through a talk or symposium. A public education component is also suggested to be considered as part of the residency in collaboration with our education team. The artist(s) will be supported throughout the residency and afterward by the staff and resources of The House, extending the impact of the program far beyond the four-month period. Contact Lian Ladia ( with any questions.
