The NYC-DET Residency Program aims to generate and encourage exchange between local Detroit artists and artists from NYC, believing that this interaction is a unique way to gain new experiences in a different context, while encountering other view points and perspectives concerning contemporary art coming out of Detroit.
In addition to the exhibition opportunities in both Detroit and Brooklyn, the residency includes artist living arrangements at the Spread Art Residency House, use of Spread Art’s 2500 sq ft Michigan Avenue facility, use of a bicycle, and access to transportation when required. The Michigan Avenue facility includes a ground floor 900 sq ft light filled multi-use space space with a full wall of mirrors and 20 ft ceilings. The downstairs development space is comprised of 1600 sq ft work studio. The artist will also be introduced to members of the local art community as well as the greater Detroit community, and be invited to various events, gallery openings, and exhibits during their stay. The residency program cost to the artist is travel/airfare between New York and Detroit, cost of materials for project, shipping of artwork between Detroit and Brooklyn, plus a $200 fee.
