Liquitex Residency Program
Liquitex is pleased to announce the launch of the 2022 artists’ residency series at Manufacturers Village in East Orange, NJ. This is a unique opportunity for artists to work in a private studio space with Liquitex materials, while immersed among a diverse community of over 50 creative makers. Artists are invited to just imagine how far their creativity can go with space, materials, and the freedom and time to express themselves, gain knowledge and make connections in a vibrant collective of artists.
There will be four residencies over the course of 2022: two ‘Just Imagine’ residencies focusing on the Liquitex Professional Range, one Student Residency, and one Liquitex Basics Research Residency.
Who can apply
- Any US-based artist who is able to commute to the studio space in Manufacturers Village in East Orange, NJ.
- Visual artists, with a minimum active art practice of at least two years.
- Artists who will not be engaged in another residency during the residency period.
- Artists currently lacking a designated studio for their practice preferred
- Applicants who agree to regularly share images of work in progress with Liquitex and participate in any photography and films produced by Liquitex during the residency. These images/films may be used in Liquitex digital, print and public platforms, as well as any media channels they choose.
The selection process will be conducted by a jury consisting of London-based artist Rebecca Byrne, New York-based artist and co-founder of the Fire Island Artist Residency Chris Bogia, London-based Editor at Elephant Magazine Emily Steer, New York-based artist and previous Liquitex residency recipient Mekia Machine.
The selection will be based on the artistic quality of their work, likely benefit of the residency to the artist, and the artist’s interest in engaging with Liquitex materials and embracing the overall residency experience.
This residency is offered in a private studio space, but due to the ever-changing nature of COVID-19, start and end dates for the residency are subject to local restrictions.
