D+R Residencies at Automata

Deadline: Monday, July 23, 2018 at 11:29pm PST

Offered by Los Angeles Performance Practice and Automata 

The program is designed to provide vital infrastructure for Los Angeles based artists, and places emphasis on work that reflects/connects to the unique histories, environments, communities, issues and artistic legacies that define it.

Selected projects receive 24-hour access to dedicated space for a one- or two-week period at Automata in Los Angeles’ Chinatown District, as well as additional financial support in the form of a modest stipend. Automata is an alternative performance space/gallery, suitable for small to mid-scale projects, that either need minimal technical infrastructure or construct their own systems of design and installation.

About the D+R Residency Program:
Los Angeles Performance Practice and Automata offer development residencies for Southern California artists creating new works in contemporary live performance. We encourage applicants whose projects align with our missions—works that explore the intersections of object performance, media, visual art, sound art, experimental writing and live performance, and/or employ innovative approaches to collaboration, technology and social engagement. The program is designed to provide vital infrastructure for Los Angeles based artists, and places emphasis on work that reflects/connects to the unique histories, environments, communities, issues and artistic legacies that define it.

Each residency will be crafted in collaboration with the proposed project’s artistic team, who are asked to identify specific areas of research, development and/or collaboration, along with a minimum of one point of public engagement, which may take the form of conversations, workshops, showings or other activities open to the public. In addition to supporting the quality of works being developed, we also seek to extend the dialogue about contemporary performance, as well as connecting institutions, audiences and students to the creative life of artists.
