The New Works and Creative Residency Program is a national program that awards contemporary American artists and legal US residents working in sound art and emerging technology a $5000 commission to produce and present a new artwork. The residencies will take place in New York City at the Harvestworks’ Technology, Engineering, Art and Music Lab (T.E.A.M). Projects must be completed by December 31, 2020.
Harvestworks is a leading center for the development of artworks that combine and integrate art forms, explore boundaries and create new forms of expression through art and technology. The works will be shared with the public upon completion and show that innovative use of new technology can help viewers understand their environment, be receptive of new ideas, and enrich their imagination.
Each artist receives up to a $2000 artist fee with the balance of the award used for TEAM lab activities including research and development, sound and image production, programming and prototyping. The artist works with a Harvestworks team comprised of a Project Manager and technical engineer / programmer OR can bring in their own team. The proposed projects should explore new aesthetic premises and push the boundaries of conventional art forms and media. Women, ethnic and gender-neutral artists are encouraged to apply.
A limited number of Scholarships and Technology Lab Workspace Residencies will be recommended by the panel depending on our funding. The Technology Lab Workspace Residency includes 24hr access to the Harvestworks studios and collaborative working environment.
There is no cost to apply.
