Changing what it means to "work" in Lower Manhattan

LMCC’s Artist Residencies take an innovative and holistic approach to supporting artists, in all disciplines and at all career stages, and specifically makes space for artistic process in New York City by offering programs with robust and necessary resources that respond to both artists’ changing needs and the evolution of some of our city’s most important locations. Participation in LMCC’s residency programs provides access to studio space, creative and professional development, and opportunities to share work with a network of peers, arts professionals, and audiences.

Taking place in donated temporarily vacant commercial space in Lower Manhattan and at Governors Island, LMCC is able to provide these resources in our Artist Residency programs by engaging like-minded and generous partners in the real estate community simultaneously ensuring that artists have a place to work in New York City and that Lower Manhattan is recognized as a thriving center of economic and cultural activity.

“[Workspace] is a great program, and the chance for collaboration is tremendous. My mind was truly expanded, my horizons broadened, and I think of myself in a new way as an arts professional.” – Pia Wilson, Workspace 2012-13

“This is an unusual, extraordinary and unique opportunity is for dance artists living and working in New York City. Fantastic particulars of this residency included being able to test out the unconventional seating configuration that we’re using in the piece and some of our set ideas. In order for my work to be most successful, it is critical that I have time with all of component elements not only to make them the best that they can be, but so that they inform my working and creative process.” – Miguel Gutierrez, Process Space, 2011

Residencies are awarded through different application and curatorial processes. Please explore the opportunities below to learn more.
