We are thrilled to announce the FABnyc Storefront Artists in Residence for 2018! We had over fifty applications for our very first residency program in our storefront space and were humbled to receive many strong applications by a wide range of artists. Chinatown Art Brigade will be on the block into the spring developing Placekeeping – Here to Stay a multilingual, multimedia project that will feature short video and audio stories of tenants who live in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of Manhattan’s Chinatown and LES.
Additionally we are announcing that Native Art Department International will be in residence at the Downtown Art building into the summer thanks to a collaboration between DTA and FABnyc. We are excited to host them as they develop Expanding the Scope, an effort in solidarity and trust building between Native Americans, artists and arts organizations.
