The Dupont Underground Workspace Residency Program engages selected arts practitioners for a five-month period in which they can develop a specific project or body of work within the DU’s 14000ft2 East Platform. The Fall/Winter term begins on November 1st and concludes on March 31st. The Spring/Summer term begins on May 1st and concludes on September 31st.
The residency is designed to allow the artists and the project to develop. Artists will receive feedback from the program directors, the other participants in the program, the public, and visiting professionals in the arts and academia. Projects may develop in new directions over the course of the residency and participants should expect to be challenged along the way to push their projects conceptually, formally, and in scale and scope. Artists have full-time access to the DU for the duration of their term, concluding with an exhibition of the completed projects. The exhibition will run the final month of the term.
