This residency is open to emerging and mid-career artists working in all disciplines across Greater Los Angeles. For four months the artist-in-residence will be given a studio in the Quinn Emanuel Los Angeles office to support their existing practice or a new project as appropriate. At the end of the residency an exhibition will be held to display the works of the artist and at least one work will be incorporated into the permanent collection. A supporting stipend will be provided, as well as materials allowance. Over the course of a year there will be 2 residencies, each with a four month residency and a subsequent exhibition in a location deemed appropriate for the work decided on between the artist and curator. The artist-in-residence will be an artist working with a distinct and new voice, with clear mastery of their media of choice. Preference will be given to artists who are in the early or middle stages of their career. The selection committee is interested in giving opportunity and a platform to underrepresented artists. Interested artists should submit a proposal expressing their reason for interest. This should reflect the practice realistically in scope and scale, though all types of practices are welcome.
