September 2017 residencies in Los Angeles at Eastside International (ESXLA)

Residencies available as early as Sept 2017 in Los Angeles at Eastside International (ESXLA).

Description of residency program
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.  

Duration of residency
1 - 3 months

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
The Eastside International AIR Program is open to contemporary artists employing a wide range of practices:  painting, drawing, installation, sculpture, photography, video, research or project-based projects, conceptual, performance, etc. Eastside International, however, does not have any specialty equipment or facilities on the premises such as a kiln, foundry, print-making studio, photo studio, or wood shop. If artists desire or require access to specialty facilities they must make arrangements for access independent of ESXLA. 

Accommodation and studio/ workspace
A community of artists live and work in Eastside’s facility, and the space has been in continual artist-run operation for over a decade. 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 4 resident artists, live-in co-director, the other co-directors, and studio renters at the building.  The full time resident artists, including the directors, all financially contribute to the costs of running Eastside International and all work is entirely volunteer based. The costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help cover all the maintenance, overhead, and exhibition programming, and are shared by the artist-directors and studio rentals. 

Fees and support
Residency fees for 2017 are currently set at $1,500 US per month, plus $750 US refundable deposit, and $50 application fee.

Eastside International 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.

Also, they are expected to see to the residency fees being submitted to the our fiscal sponsor, the Pasadena Arts Council, and fulfil the terms and conditions of the residency contract.
