Our residencies are designed to provide time and space for artists with a range of styles and approaches but a shared belief in artistic integrity.
The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation offers three residency programs in three different parts of the world. With these programs, we want to give artists the opportunity to live and work outside of their usual environments, providing them with space and time to reflect, research, or produce work. A residency period usually lasts between one and two months, but this is flexible, as long as it is determined in advance. All residencies are free of charge, but generally come without a stipend.
We are currently closed for applications. To apply for one of our residencies, please come back in December 2023 or subscribe to the Albers Foundation’s newsletter to stay updated.
For any questions, please contact Matthias Persson, Artist Residencies Director.
Support The Regina Tierney Fund
We believe in equal opportunity! In this time of interrelated crises, our mission is to enable artists to attend a residency regardless of their financial circumstances or geographical location. The Regina Tierney Fund is a mobility fund with the purpose of supporting artists to cover travel expenses, art supplies, and living expenses related to their residency. You can support artists by donating to The Regina Tierney Fund here or write to Matthias Persson, Artist Residencies Director. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
Painting is an essential part of Willem Boel's art practice, though he is most known for making monumental installations for public spaces, and sculptures that combine old disfunctional machines with wood and paint and other materials. As a painter, he likes to work in series and is interested in the spontaneous and unplanned outcome that can arise within the framework of open-ended repetitive painting gestures. Willem is based in Ghent, Belgium, and is currently represented by Galería Hilario Galguera in Mexico City & Madrid.Artist's Website
Albers Foundation Residency
Karin Schaefer is based in New York and Massachusetts. While her drawings and paintings are about visual presence, they're at the same time rooted in conceptual systems. Much of her work is closely related to meditation, a discipline she has practiced for nearly 20 years: the shapes and the colors are based on the light and form she senses with her eyes closed during meditation. While each of per paintings exists as individual pieces, together they form a visual diary of her mind's imaginary perception. Karin Schaefer is represented by Sears Peyton Gallery in New York.Artist's Website
Chloé Levesque is a Paris-based artist and designer. Her independent paintings and drawings are usually developed over several months during which she repeats the same subject matter again and again, changing colors, scales, and materials until reaching a result that is at once intense in terms of color, and balanced in terms of composition. As a designer, Chloé makes serigraphs, wallpapers, carpets, rugs, and textiles. She also collaborates with architects and carries out tailor-made projects for hotels and the residential sector.Artist's Website
Cassi Namoda is a Mozambique-born painter, now based between New York and Los Angeles. She traveled frequently as a child, and has lived in Haiti, the United States, Kenya, Benin, Uganda and other countries. This rich and diverse cultural background, and her understanding of different cultures, is visible in her paintings. Attentive to landscape, she creates scenes that relate to both the rural and the urban, while the characters in her portraits explore the intimacies of everyday life.Artist's Website
