Studio Museum Harlem Opens Applications for Artist-in-Residence


Since 1968, the Studio Museum has earned recognition for its catalytic role in advancing the work of visual artists of African and Afro-Latinx descent through its Artist-in-Residence program. The program has supported over 100 graduates who have gone on to highly regarded careers.

Every year, the Museum offers an eleven-month residency for three local, national, or international emerging artists working in any media. Each artist receives institutional guidance and professional development, research support, and a stipend of 20K paid out on a bi-weekly basis over the course of the residency.


Application materials are due by 11:59pm EST on April 19, 2021. All recommendation letters are due by 11:59pm EST on April 21, 2021.

– At present, the Museum is not able to guarantee the offering of physical studio spaces due to the ongoing restrictions and limitations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; the Museum will continue to keep applicants informed as updates develop.

– Artists should apply to the residency with the expectation that they are able to work remotely and are required to engage with their studio practice in this form at a minimum of twenty hours per week.

– Over the course of the residency program artists are required to participate in the Museum’s annual Open Studios, a select number of public programs, and in an active and rigorous engagement with the Museum’s Curatorial team and other Museum departments via video conference.

– At the end of the residency there will be a culminating project in celebration of the work made throughout the course of the program; contingent on the impact of COVID-19 this may take a variety of forms. The Museum Curatorial team will work closely with the artists to consider how this will take form.

– Artists should not currently be in school or committed to another residency while in the Studio Museum Artist-in-Residence program.
