The Artist In Residence Program (AIR)
For periods of 3 or 6 months residents are provided with living accommodation and a studio. During the residency Raid encourages the artist to bring curators, critics and collectors to visit the studio and see the produced work privately.
AIR resident artists are predominantly international, but we also host US artists whose projects are suitable to a LA residency. The residency fee from April 2008 is $1000 US per month. This will NOT culminate with an exhibition after this date. The residency will entirely concentrate on the artists experimentation and experience of Los Angeles without the pressure of a final outcome. This residency will be for the artist to choose to spend their time wherever they feel it will do them the most good. There is a space dedicated to displaying work for any visits by curators, critics, etc but will not act as a show or host an opening. Please note, upon acceptance into the program, it is up to the artist to secure their space by providing a non-refundable deposit of the first months rent ($1000US). This is the only way to cement the dates you wish to have. The AIR program will rise in cost for 2009 to $1200 US to reflect increases in rent as well as the decline in value of the US dollar.
What you can expect from the Artist In Residency Program:
To provide the artist with an environment that is condusive to a creative working experience.
To respond in a timely manner to an artists questions and concerns
To provide the artist upon their arrival with rooms that are clean and orderly.
To always be respectful of the artists space.
1. Gallery Hopping:Shortly after their arrival the artist will be encouraged to visit the many galleries, opening receptions and arts events happening every week. This is a great way to meet people in the LA art scene.
2. Getting Started:
Raid does not provide artists with materials for their projects. However, there are tools at Raid and the artist is more than welcome to use them, but types and availabilities will vary from time to time. And on the subject of tools, Home Depot is just down the street.
Upon the artist's request, to engage in a comprehensive critique with the gallery director before the artist completes their residency.
