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 open for applications for residencies in late 2023 and 2024. To apply for one of our residencies, please fill out the form here. The deadline for applications is January 8, 2023.
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.
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
Machteld Rullens is based in The Hague, Netherlands. Her works are hard to place in a category: they look like paintings, but they're three-dimensional and rarely applied with a brush. Machteld's work is about experimentation and transformation, relating to elements of play, composition, and architecture. Her preferred material is cardboard boxes which she rubs with color and resin in order to create compositions that are at once painterly and sculptural.Artist's Website
Aisha Sasha John
Aisha, who is based in Toronto, is an artist working with a variety of expressions, in particular poetry and dance. She is most known for her solo performance “The Aisha of is” which premiered at the Whitney Museum some years ago. Her most recent publication “I have to live”, has been described “a real statement of poetry, not as a formal means but as a lifeform, and correspondingly, of life as a poem.”Artist's Website
Albers Foundation Residency
Fawn Krieger is a Brooklyn-based interdisciplinary artist. Combining industrial and domestic materials, video, and performance, she works both individually and in collaboration with other artists and performers. Her recent work has involved pressing under-glazed and fired clay volumes into ceramic troughs with wet cement, resulting in playful, abstract sculptural works.Artist's Website
Albers Foundation Residency
André Azevedo, based in Brazil, makes work primarily with a typewriter and sewing machine. The resulting objects ply the intersection of text and textile, while exploring the sounds of the two machines. Unexpected textures emerge from the overlap of these material investigations.Artist's Website
