In 2011, OCA introduces an open call for applications for a studio residency for a Norwegian artist at the International Artists in Residency programme at 18th Street Art Center in the Santa Monica neighbourhood of Los Angeles, CA, USA. The deadline for applications is 1 May 2011.

The Residency

A live/work studio within the 18th Street Art Center complex is provided for a period of 3 months: 1 October 2011 through 31 December 2011. Only Norwegian citizens are eligible for this grant. Please note that the programme is not open to current art students. The residency is optimal for artists seeking time and space in order to pursue specific studio-based project work. Residents are encouraged to participate in open studio events and other activities within the broader programme of the centre.

Founded in 1988, 18th Street Art Center is a community-based, multi-disciplinary non-profit arts organisation housed on a campus of buildings, which includes artists' studios, exhibition spaces, an artist residency programme and other resident organisations, such as a performance space, a film/video production facility and Otis College of Art & Design's MFA programme in Public Practice, among others. Through 18th Street's exhibitions, workshops and festivals, the organisation encourages and supports the creation of experimental contemporary art, and fosters collaboration and interaction between artists and arts organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
