Curatorial Residency, Flux Factory
Deadline: 15 March, 2013

Flux Factory is a non-profit art organization that supports and promotes emerging artists through exhibitions, commissions, residencies, and collaborative opportunities. Flux Factory is guided by its passion to nurture the creative process, and knows that this process does not happen in a vacuum but rather through a network of peers and through resource-sharing. Flux Factory functions as an incubation and laboratory space for the creation of artworks that are in dialogue with the physical, social, and cultural spheres of New York City (though collaborations may start in New York and stretch far beyond

Flux Factory is expanding their "Flux Artist-in-Residence" program to include two six-month residencies per year for emerging curators who are based in the United States, during which the participants will work side-by-side with resident artists in an immersive environment to create new work collectively. Each residency will culminate in a public exhibition at the Flux Factory gallery, as well as related programming, which may include panel discussions, artist talks, screenings, or publications. Resident curators will also have the opportunity to work with Flux Factory to develop and produce their collective exhibitions and educational programming during their stay and beyond.

The two exhibitions and related educational programming will be generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. Residents are responsible for the cost of the studio for this residency, approximately $750 each month.

1st residency:
May 1st, 2013 – November 1st, 2013
Culminating exhibition – mid-October

2nd residency
November 1st, 2013 – May 1st, 2014
Culminating exhibition – mid-April

To apply, please send a multi-page .pdf (10mb or less) that includes:

- Proposal for an exhibition concept and related programming in 500 words or less, focusing on the idea behind the show. Proposals should make use of our expansive network and resources, and should reflect Flux Factory’s commitment to collaboration, risk-taking, and social engagement while expanding the horizons of our 19-year legacy.
- Working list of artists (URLs & illustrative images) for consideration, though they do not have to have been contacted or confirmed.
