ESXLA AIR program - summer 2019 residencies available

Summer 2019 residencies available at Eastside International in Los Angeles.

ABOUT
Currently, the self-structured residency lasts from 1, 2, or 3 months and includes a bedroom and adjoining studio for contemporary visual artists to make work, connect with other artists, spaces, galleries, curators, and others and explore Los Angeles.  

Current residency fees are set at $1,600 US per month for residencies beginning 2019 until the end of 2018. $10 application fee, $750 US refundable deposit required if accepted. Fees for residencies beginning 2020 will be $1650 US per month.

Eastside International itself does not currently offer any kind of financial aid or stipends to residents.  All funding is the responsibility of the applicants.  We can, on request, provide documentation to applicants or funders in regards to receipt of application materials and/or an applicant’s acceptance to the AIR program.

A community of artists live and work in Eastside’s facility, and the space has been in continual artist-run operation for more than 15 years. The AIR accommodations are for working artists; the facility is operated out of a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony. The AIR program at Eastside is artist-run, semi-communal, co-ed, and cooperatively operated with common areas, kitchen, WC and other facilities shared by the 5 resident artists and studio renters at the building. As per our artist-run, non-commercial mission, the costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help to cover all the overhead, maintenance, and exhibition programming.

Eastside International provides a space for the making of art and participating in the Los Angeles contemporary art community and is not recommended for artists expecting luxury accommodations, preferential treatment, or a vacation resort experience.
