About the Residency:
Several of the 06-07 Aferro Studio residents have commented that the chance for informal networking with peers afforded by residency in the building was one of the best aspects of their experience. Also mentioned by residents consistently as a unique and valuable aspect of the program was temporary ownership of a platform to interact with the public.
Residents will be awarded a 1200-2000 sq ft studio for 6 months, with 24 hr access, access to visiting curators and other gallery directors, a solo exhibition in our project space, and inclusion in an end-of-program catalog highlighting their work over the length of the residency. The current Aferro building can accommodate up to 5 artists at a time. Artists will be selected on the basis of quality of work, commitment to their field, and ability to interact positively with the community at large. The program will aim for a mix of Newark and non-Newark residents.

Studios range in size from 1200 to 2000 square feet. The studios are strictly work only spaces. The studios are raw spaces with minimal amenities. Artists who are accepted into the program must be prepared to actively use their studio. 6-month slots are available beginning Feb 23, 2009.
