Every year, Amant Studio & Research Residency Programme awards artists from around the world with research-oriented residencies in a brand new campus in Brooklyn, NY. During each three-month residency, four artists are provided with individual studio spaces, an expense allowance, as well as resources to support long-term research projects and archival work.
With experimental practices within the visual arts, cultural theory, writing, filmmaking, and performance, the residents form a central part of Amant’s dynamic multidisciplinary programming.
Amant also supports each resident’s artistic research by facilitating access to relevant institutions, archives, and scholars in New York City. By listening to and engaging with the many perspectives the city has to offer, each artist has the opportunity to enrich their creative practice and gain access to New York’s world-renowned art scene.
Echoing the general ethos of Amant, the NY Residency makes a special emphasis on thinking alongside narratives that have not been validated, interpreted, or recorded by art history and history, fostering an active dialogue with local organisations and communities, art professionals, and cultural producers at large.
Above all else, Amant is committed to providing residents with the time and support they need to experiment.
The residency comprises:
- Individual studios, a private communal area, and access to outdoor spaces within Amant’s campus.
- Roundtrip economy flights and airport transfers to NY.
- A monthly expense allowance of $3000 to offset the costs of accommodation, transport and day-to-day expenses. Please note that Amant studios are not residential.
- The opportunity to benefit from the expertise of the artistic team at Amant and New York City’s cultural and academic community.
The residency welcomes applications from emerging artists as well as from artists with professional standing in their field who are currently working on the research stage of a project. Proposals are accepted from creative practitioners and academics from a variety of disciplines within the contemporary arts: visual artists, writers, performers, filmmakers, and theorists.
