Flux Factory’s innovative residency program is excited to expand to include a silk screen residency for print makers.
Flux Factory is a nonprofit organization that provides low-cost residencies in NYC for over 30 artists per year. Together we organize ambitious collective projects and programming in our on-site gallery, as well as collaborative work that is housed in other institutions throughout the US and abroad.
The Flux Print Maker Residency offers use of an equipped screen printing lab and communal spaces, including our gallery, co-working office, wood shop, kitchen, and library. Residents benefit from an engaged and creative community, access to professional staff, studio visits, monthly potluck dinners & salons, and exposure to a large network of cultural producers who maintain personal practices and also develop projects together.
We’re looking for print makers who will be active community members in our prolific social milieu. This residency is perfect for artists who have their own focused practice, but revel in sharing it with others in a vibrant and, at times, chaotic environment. In addition to providing a venue for personal production, Flux Factory also functions as an art-making collective and encourages artists-in-residence to participate in invitational projects.
Our silkscreen studio is a small but fully furnished print shop designed for paper projects and single-layer fabric prints. The studio contains separate rooms for printing and screen prep. Equipment includes: 4′x8′ printing table, 50 shelf drying rack, flat files, spray booth and power washer, dark room, a 36″x42″ UV light box, and a 36″x36″ paper cutter.
Resident(s) are responsible for the $350 monthly rental fee and production materials.
Deadline: January 15th, 2012.
