Special Editions Residency Program
Lower East Side Printshop, Inc.

New York, NY
Residency period: Three to Six months

Special Editions Residency Program is a competitive national residency program for emerging artists to create new work through exploration of printmaking. The Lower East Side Printshop offers an opportunity to complete an important new body of work in collaboration with one of our two experienced master printers, fully sponsored by the Printshop.

Artists, with or without printmaking skills, are provided with technical assistance, financial support, time and studio space to explore printmaking and complete a new body of work. Experimentation and exploration of new materials and processes are welcome.

The Printshop documents the artwork digitally, in printed materials including the annual catalogue, and on the Internet. The Printshop also provides exposure opportunities through on- and off-site exhibitions and studio visits. Awarded artists work alongside other emerging and mid-career artists in the Printshop's Collaborations Studio.

Residency includes:
• 12 day-long collaboration sessions with a master printer during a period of three to six months, plus, production/editioning service; independent studio access during the residency;
• All materials, full access to tools and equipment;
• up to $4,000 stipend;
• Catalogue;
• Printed and internet publicity and free slide documentation;
• Limited travel and accommodation stipends for artists who live outside of New York City.

Residencies will take place for a period of three to six months, including production time, scheduled between February 2012 and February 2013. Projects must be well under way and ready for production by October 1, 2012.

• All applications will be evaluated for their artistic excellence by the selection panel consisting of five artists and art professionals.
• Selection will be completed in February 2012. All applicants will be informed of the panel's decision by email.
