"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."
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.
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
