Artists In Residence

These exceptional artists are provided with an artistic home base for a one to two year period, giving them a tangible sense of permanence and place. BAX AIR is tailored to each artist’s unique needs, process and artistic practice. Its structure develops peer support, collaborative problem-solving and constructive criticism. Each 2018/19 Artist In Residence receives 300 free hours of rehearsal space per year and an annual stipend. Artist in Residence have priority to BAX rehearsal space in any of its four studios and meet regularly for one-on-one consultations with Executive Artistic Director Marya Warshaw and Artistic Advisors Abigail Browde and Nia Love. Group meetings with all six artists occur every six weeks. Group meeting topics include video documentation; developing relationships with producers; challenges of collaboration and co-directing; establishing a teaching practice; and finding life/work balance.

All artists have opportunities to present works in progress and/or finished work at BAX with full production and marketing support from BAX. Following performances at BAX, BAX often assists artists in delivering their vision to a broader audience by co-producing their work in Manhattan venues or to establish relationships with producers and funders that will allow them to move forward. Opportunities are also available to curate, teach in the public schools, and work with BAX’s student population.
