Art Omi: Artists

2024 Application Open Call

Residency dates: June 20—July 15, 2024
Applications are accepted through 11:59 PM on October 15, 2023

Art Omi: Artists invites artists, critics, and curators from around the world – representing a wide diversity of artistic styles and practices – to gather in rural New York to experiment, collaborate, and share ideas. Concentrated time for creative work is balanced with the stimulation of cultural exchange and critical appraisal. Art Omi: Artists Residency nurtures deep creative and professional connections in a vibrant social setting.

Each session, two dozen international artists are invited to the program, along with two critics/curators who participate as Critic Emeritus and Critic/Curator-In-Residence. These two individuals play a pivotal role in the residency as they facilitate discussions, help connect the artists with art world professionals through the Visitors Program, and conduct individual studio visits with the artists in residence throughout the duration of the residency session.

Art Omi: Artists welcomes artists from all over the world who have been professionally active for at least the past 3 years. Disciplines include visual arts, sound art, performance, and social practice. Having studied art is not a requirement.

The Visitors Program enables residents to have conversations with visiting art critics, curators, gallerists and prominent artists. Direct engagement with the New York City art world is unmatched by similar residency programs.

The Call to Artists is open every year August 15 – October 15. All applicants are notified the following February.
