Qualifications: Bachelor’s degree in appropriate field of artistic study, Master’s degree preferred. Strong

background and knowledge of the desired discipline; strong evidence of success in artistic collaboration,

interest and demonstrated ability in teaching and supporting adolescents; sense of humor, flexibility,

energy, collegiality, and the ability to work effectively with a team; ability to work well with a range of able,

highly motivated students; strong organizational skills and high energy and creativity; technological literacy

in standard programs (Word, Excel, Email, Social Media, etc.), and commitment to residential life and

program.

OPEN SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED: Intensive Art Residency/ Pop Up Exhbition at Autonomie

Our Intensive Residency Program (IRP) is a 3-day (72hr) invitation to come to Los Angeles to produce an exhibition. This may be an exhibition of your own work, a two person show or a group show. You will be able to discuss your plans and the terms of your acceptance into the IRP program with your attending director. What does the gallery cover? Only the cost of operations and promotion. You make your own travel plans, pay the cost of shipping work, buy your own food, coordinate your own housing and so on. The IRP has a very simple structure. Day I: Install. Day II: The show opens. Day III: De-install. The gallery will begin promoting the show one to two weeks in advance of opening night. And in certain cases, the IRP will extend beyond just three days for special projects which demand more time and attention. From time to time the IRP is also offered to Los Angeles Artists deserving of extended exposure. The 3-day residency is meant to be an opportunity for national and international artists to have an exhibition in Los Angeles as well as the chance to enter into a cross-cultural dialog with other artists. All applications should be sent directly to the directors at autonomie333@gmail.com. Nominations are made at the beginning of every other year.

2/29: STUDIOS FOR RENT

2 STUDIOS FOR RENT APRIL 1

My place is at 4921 Exposition Blvd 90016, just opposite the new train line and a few blocks east of La Brea. It’s a wonderful studio and we’ve worked out most of the kinks in the first year of the lease – got a new roof, brought wireless internet to the block, etc. The blocks from Farmdale to La Brea are quickly filling with artists – Mark Dutcher, Mara De Luca, Fine Art Stretcher Bars, etc. There’s a park with tennis, a pool, and fields across the street from the train line, which will begin running downtown soon. An Albertsons is walkable, as is a fine fish shack.

I have three spaces to rent, which could be filled by one to three people, work-only. One is a small front studio, another is a big downstairs studio for those with bigger storage and tall wall needs, and a third is upstairs from that downstairs studio – quite long, if not as high. All studios would have access to shared spaces as needed, including a living room, outside area, kitchen, and two bathrooms. (The small front studio, again, has a third bathroom all to itself.)

The total rent for the three spaces is $1700, including utilities and internet, which I picture being split as follows:

Big downstairs studio: $750 (including utilities/internet): 17 feet tall, and is about 700 square feet. 35 feet of pristine white drywall that runs north/south. it also has another 13 feet of drywall at its north end and 23 x 9 feet of storage, plus about 12 feet of wall space that’s not drywalled. lots of room for both floor and wall work, in other words. two skylights light this, plus some flourescents and hanging lamps. Concrete floors.
Big upstairs studio: $650 (including utilities/internet): 288 square foot balcony (8 x 36 feet), 130 square foot room with shelves connected to 325 square foot room with drywall, so around 740 square feet. This space is shorter than downstairs, obviously, and with less existing drywall, but is very well lit by windows and has a lot of ways in which it could be used. The floor is wood, but nothing precious.
Small downstairs studio: $300 (including utilities/internet): room is about 160 square feet, but on top of that includes own bathroom and closet. A little like an office studio, with big windows and jasmine beginning to grow just outside. Concrete floors.
Let me know if you’d like to come by to take a look!

2/28 LIVE/WORK STUDIO SPACE

Call for Artist Resident:

Concord offers a bedroom and studio space in a converted Warehouse in Cypress Park. Through the residency program the incoming artist will gain access to a community of artists, arts professionals and partnered organizations across Los Angeles.

The length of the residency is six months to a year starting March/April 2012. The resident will be invited to exhibit within or utilize the gallery space in whatever way they like – this can be a show of their own work, or a curated show, or some kind of interdisciplinary project such as a lecture series or workshop. The possibility of organizing multiple events/shows depends on scheduling.

The successful applicant will be enthusiastic to join Concord’s vibrant community and will happily engage in the collective process of organizing our space. What this means is that we would like the incoming resident to be an active member in our community, share in decisions about programming and curating events, aid in fundraising and contribute to conceptual planning and the overall development of the space.

The fees for the residency program are $750 per month with a small commitment to the space in time, skills or ideas; the residency fees includes a large bedroom, studio space, utilities, wifi and access to facilities such as our mobile studio.

We prefer applications in person (all disciplines welcome) – to schedule a meeting or to find out more please contact concord1010@gmail.com

Concord is an artist-run-space and a collective located in Cypress Park. Concord is also an experiment in building community both within the arts, within the home and within the neighbourhood. The gallery and project space hosts exhibitions, performances, readings, music and lectures. The collective lives and runs the project space from within the same building – complicating the divide between public and private space. For more information visit http://www.concordspace.com
