Eastside International Los Angeles - fall and winter 2018 residencies

Eastside International Los Angeles - fall and winter 2018 residencies available.

Eastside International (ESXLA) in Los Angeles has availability for it's international residency program this fall and winter, as well as next spring and summer.

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 2018.

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 complex. 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. 

Eastside 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.
