c3: Working Library Residency

Emerging Program member

We are accepting applications for 4+ week project proposals which seek to challenge and expand commonplace definitions of production, publication, archive and exhibition. The intention of the residency is to re-imagine the library and engage the public, as Working Library is to be imagined and constructed in part by you in conversation with the community.

Proposed projects could ask questions such as; What is the role of the library in the evolving contemporary art scene? How does publishing manifest as an art practice? How can a library serve as an archive of the commons, a social condenser, or a forum to debate our values? How can the library function as an inclusive and generative space for dialog and collective action? How can one engage and reposition the library’s systems and networks? What lives in a library other than books? How can research, ephemera, and experience manifest as material?

Artist stipend of $1000
24/7 access to a 1500 sf shared storefront/studio space
Staff support from c3:initiative in the form of marketing, communications, staffing events, as well as support in dialog with your project.
Orientation to the space and neighborhood
Free access to yoga at Shanti Om
