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