"The pool of amazing and talented people who applied to FIAR was just 
mind-boggling:  clearly this is a very-much needed organization! 
Then, when I got out there for a visit, I really experienced the 
warmth and specialness of what the participants had been able to 
build together among themselves-I felt the love!" -Amy Sillman

"FIAR represents a great opportunity for cross generational 
connection between newer and more established queer artists. I loved 
having the chance to discover exciting work and ideas in a setting 
that promoted thought and dialogue over high-pressure careerism." 
-Nayland Blake

Celebrating its tenth season on Fire Island in Cherry Grove, NY this 
year, Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) is now accepting 
applications for its internationally recognized summer residency 
program for artists identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, 
transgender or queer. LGBTQ emerging artists demonstrating new 
perspectives in contemporary visual art are encouraged to apply by 
11:59 EST March 22, 2020.

Five selected visual artists and three selected poets will share a 
live/work space in the historically queer island hamlet of Cherry 
Grove, NY for a four-week program marked by intimate studio visits 
with, and public lectures by, renowned leaders in contemporary art 
and curation. The program is free to residents, who are provided with 
a stipend for meals and a free, modest live/work space.

2020 program
FIAR provides free modest live/work space to five artist residents 
and three poets who work, research, relax, and immerse themselves in 
the Fire Island community. During this time they are visited by a 
handful renowned visiting artists and art professionals who commune 
with residents through intimate visits, dinners, and discussions, 
providing support and feedback throughout the duration of program. 
The greater Fire Island community, and visitors from New York and 
Long Island, are invited to attend free public lectures by these 
esteemed guests of FIAR.

Application fee: 40 USD
