2020 Post-Graduation Residency
Torpedo Factory Art Center
Entry Deadline: Sep. 22
The Torpedo Factory Post-Grad Residency is a competitive juried program that provides meaningful support and 3-month term solo studio space. This residency is open to recently-graduated students who earned a bachelor’s or master’s art degree from an accredited university. The program is unique for addressing the critical post-graduation juncture in an emerging artist’s career, offering an opportunity for professional development, and a chance to define their independent work process outside of the academic context. Submissions are open for both art school students in the region and nationwide, provided artists submit proof of residence in the D.C. metropolitan area.
Residents receive studio space and public presentation opportunities, including an artist talk and participation in a culminating curated exhibition in the Target Gallery, the contemporary exhibition space for the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Residents are active and equal participants in the Torpedo Factory’s unique creative community. Residents benefit from engagement with local, national, and international artists.
