Session invites artists to use one of two flexible spaces in Soho and Red Hook, New York, to realize long-term projects that take advantage of a built-in public audience. Though similar to a residency program, Session goes beyond the traditional structure to provide resources and facilitate interactions between artist and audience throughout the creative process. Sessions last 6-12 weeks. Applications will be used to fill Sessions spring 2013 - summer 2014. To apply please visit Recess's Application Page here recessactivities.org/play/apply.
