An outgrowth of Artists’ Workshop, Triangle Residency was created in 2002. The residency offers spacious studios for artists to realize large-scale, long-term projects and provides a collegial working environment. Studio residents are chosen yearly based upon a competitive portfolio submission application that is reviewed by a jury of New York based arts professionals and Triangle board members and staff. Each artist’s stay culminates in an Open Studio exhibition to which the general public is invited. Resident artists will also receive studio visits from critics, writers and curators.
The next Open Call for applications for sessions in 2015 will be announced in the summer of 2014.
Although studio space is provided twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, free of charge, resident artists are responsible for all other expenses including housing, travel, materials and meals. In addition, artists are expected to spend a minimum of 15 hours a week working in their studio or will be asked to leave the program.
Our studios and administrative office are located at 20 Jay Street in Brooklyn, NY.
Current resident artists:
In addition to the artists we host as a result of the annual portfolio submission jury process, Triangle Residency currently maintains international partnerships from which we receive financial support. These partnerships are the Institut Francais, the Berlin Senate, FUTURA and VARP NY (Visegrad Artist Reidency Program New York) International Visegrad Fund and the City of Le Havre, France.
Both the Institut Francais and the Berlin Senate send up to two artists per year to work for one calendar year in dedicated studios at Triangle. Our partnership with FUTURA brings 2 artists from Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia to work for 3 months two times a year. Session 1 runs from March – May and session 2 runs September – November. In addition, our partnership with FUTURA awards one Triangle alumnus a 3 month residency in Prague. Finally our partnership with the City of Le Havre, France facilitates a residency exchange wherein two Triangle alumni travel to Le Havre to work for three months and Le Havre sends two artists to Triangle to work for 3 months.
Triangle has also recently received funding and reinstated our partnership with the Vermont Studio Center and Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. This fall 5 artists from South America chosen by VSC and RSCF will travel to VSC and work for 8 weeks then travel to New York for a weeklong cultural excursion hosted by Triangle.
