ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM LAUNCHED BY LOS ANGELES NOMADIC VISION
LAND is pleased to announce LANDxAIR, its first Artist Residency Program, which will take place annually at rotating hosting institutions nationally and internationally. The program will be open to artists in the United States and abroad.
The first iteration is in collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson
, and will consist of a month-long residency to promote an in-depth engagement with the community and rich natural resources of Tucson, encouraging exchange and dialogue through public programs, conversations, studio visits, and a culminating presentation. Artists will take residence in MOCA Tucson
’s historic neo-brutalist firehouse, built in 1971. Two artists will be selected by LAND and MOCA’s curatorial staff, and will be invited to live and work in the former firemen’s quarters located within the museum. Access to a private room/studio space will be provided, along with general curatorial oversight throughout the residency.
