SHIFT Residency was launched in August 2010 to provide an unprecedented opportunity: peer support and studio space for artists who work in arts organizations (as curators, educators, administrators, etc.). For these individuals, their livelihood isn’t just a day job, but a passion and responsibility, demanding high amounts of creativity, stamina, and sacrifice. SHIFT Residency honors these artists’ commitment to the art community with a unique environment to revitalize their studio practices. Each year, residents are selected through a competitive nomination process based on the excellence of their work, their strong potential for artistic growth, and the outstanding contributions they have made to New York’s cultural institutions. Since its launch, SHIFT has accommodated forty-two artists working in a growing range of media, from sound and installation to painting, performance, and social practice.
