Artist Residency: Woodstock AIR

Visual Arts
Organization CPW (Center for Photography at Woodstock)
Deadline January 31, 2024

Woodstock AIR, CPW’s nationally recognized artist-in-residence program, was established in 1999. It is committed to providing direct support to artists of color working with photography and expanding the critical dialogue around diversity, race, and identity in the context of social justice.

This one-month residency will allow ten photographers the time and space to break new ground, complete ongoing projects, and advance their artistic vision within an environment that has inspired artists for over a century. The two-bedroom house in Woodstock features two separate artist studios which serve as the base for the residency and visiting artist programs.

Woodstock AIR encourages US-based BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and ALAANA (African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, Native American) identifying artists working in any genre of photography or related media to apply. Applicants currently enrolled in a full-time degree program must complete their degree program by May 2024 (with the exception of Ph.D. students) in order to qualify for the 2024 open call for Woodstock AIR. Former residents may not reapply.

Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) are given access to facilities and financial, critical, and technical support. The goal of this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.

Residents may use their time at CPW in whatever way is most advantageous to their goals.

Residencies are four weeks in length and include a $2,000 honorarium, $250 travel stipend, living accommodations in a house with a fully equipped artist studio, with a large-format printer, editing setup, and ample workspace, In addition, residents receive critical and technical support at CPW’s Digital Media Lab in Kingston.

Artists will be selected by a panel including Eric Booker, Associate Curator, Storm King Art Center; Baldwin Lee, photographer and educator; Miwa Susuda, Publisher, Session Press and manager, Dashwood Books; and Daniella Zalcman (Woodstock AIR 2022), photographer and founder of Women Photograph.
