Paper Machine Publication Residency
- Budget: 1500
Antenna’s Paper Machine Residency supports artists in the development of creative projects and public programs that explore and expand the possibilities of print-based artistic inquiry. The program annually welcomes up to 6 artists — with a mix of local and national/international artists to realize unique proposals for print-focused projects and public programs.
Over the course of a month long residency at Paper Machine, Artists-in-Residence will: 1) develop original editioned work under the broadly-defined rubric of printmaking, including publications, sculptural books, zines, multiples, and other such works; and 2) will present complementary programs that engage the public in their artistic process, including participatory compositions, workshops, or artist talks.
Selected Artists will be awarded a $1500 honorarium, paid travel to and from New Orleans, a month long stay in the Paper Machine residency space, and assistance in development/execution of a 300 piece edition with 50 copies given to the artist. All materials will be provided for the production of the edition.
Paper Machine is a 5,000 square-foot center for creator-driven publishing in the Lower 9th Ward, which houses a range of new and traditional technologies: commercial-grade digital & foiling presses as well as letterpress and silkscreen, direct-to-garment, 3D printing equipment, and full book bindery. The second floor offers affordable studio space for local artists.
