Rethinking Residencies is a working group of sixteen New York-based artist residency programs. Initiated in March 2014, its members share knowledge and resources, while cultivating critical thinking and discourse about residencies.
Collaborating organizations represent a wide range of models, scales and approaches and include: Abrons Art Center, Eyebeam, Fire Island Artist Residency, Flux Factory, International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), The Laundromat Project, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC), Queens Museum, Pioneer Works, Recess, Shandaken Projects, EFA Project Space’s SHIFT Residency, Triangle, Wave Farm, Wave Hill and W.O.W. Project.
In December 2021, Rethinking Residencies organized a three-day online symposium on visual art residencies. Video documentation of this symposium is here. A publication based on the symposium will be launched in June 2022.
