KUNSTRAUM is calling for submissions for our 2024-2025 Artist-in-Residence Program.
KUNSTRAUM is a community of artists by artists with the goal of redefining the collaboration between artists and curators. Through our program, we aim to explore the relationships between artists and curators by opening our gallery spaces to those interested in exploring unconventional, engaging ideas and taking risks.

Our Artist-in-Residency program offers three-month residencies for national and international artists on a quarterly cycle. In 2024 and 2025, the three-month residencies will take place from January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December, with multiple spots available for each period.

All resident artists are invited to pursue their independent projects, interact with our established community of artists, designers, and filmmakers, interact with the incoming artists and curators of our ongoing exhibition program, participate in the monthly studio visits, and exhibit in the Annual Members’ Show. To learn more about KUNSTRAUM, please visit our website and Instagram account.

Each Residency Includes:
A desk-sized studio in our partitioned lofts with 24/7 access (no living). The semi-private studios inside the large open lofts range from 49 to 89 square feet.
Access to our gallery space (4-5 exhibitions a year) and participation in our Annual Members’ Show, including studio visits, professional documentation, and programming event
Sales opportunities during the show plus via an online gallery for the duration of 6 months after
An artist community with 19 members and more than 100 alumni to meet and share with monthly studio visits by 1-2 New York and international curators, gallerists, critics, and art advisors (see “About” on the website for the list)
Studio Visit with our Curator-in-Residence and monthly salons with artist community
Social media promotion and a feature of your work on our website.
Access to our internal monthly newsletter, which includes news, events, an open call list with exhibition, grant, and residency opportunities

Community events in which all resident and member artists are invited to attend. These community events vary and include gallery openings, curator walkthroughs, discussions, salons, and open studios.

The studio spaces have 24/7 access with 13 ft. ceilings, a freight elevator, a slop sink, secure Wi-Fi, and are meant to be used for non-toxic materials only–all painters work on a non-toxic basis. Blick Art Supply, hardware stores, post office, print shops, supermarkets, restaurants, and delis are just 1.5 blocks away, and Home Depot is as close as 10 blocks. No living is included. The resident artist is responsible for finding their own living arrangements.
