Celebrating the 10th anniversary of LMCC's artist residency program, Out of Site was a a series of guest curated exhibitions and special events that takes artists’ work out of the studio and brings audiences to several locations downtown to explore the program’s past and present.
Site Matters, published in 2004, is a book that chronicles LMCC’s residency program in the World Trade Center. Edited by Moukhtar Kocache and Erin Shirreff, Site Matters includes texts by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Erin Donnelly, Tom Healy, Moukhtar Kocache, Olu Oguibe, Liz Thompson, and Anthony Vidler and documentation of works by all participating artists.
From November 2005 through May 2006, LMCC offered a temporary studio residency program in Lower Manhattan for 15 artists displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
LMCC’s first performing arts residency, MOVE: 133 Beekman offered rehearsal space to six choreographers from January through May 2005. The residency culminated in a series of open rehearsals in May 2005.
