In its 5th year, AS | ARTISTS STUDIOS is a database of non-represented art vis-à-vis New York City that seeks to create an online space in which one can view art that is less accessible than art created by represented artists.
The observation of contemporary art exists primarily in the context of the market, located at the opposite end of artistic creativity. Through the fusion of art history and art criticism, AS | ARTISTS STUDIOS serves as an archive, document, and resource of the strongest non-represented art vis-à-vis New York City.
Updated regularly, AS | ARTISTS STUDIOS contains individual artist archives; each provides you with information about an artist, images of artwork in the studio, and direct contact with the artist.
This year AS | ARTISTS STUDIOS expands its reach with the AS | US residency program to artists who live and work in communities located outside the greater New York metropolitan area.
AS | US is a two-month, project-based residency that provides professional development with New York advice and visibility, tailored to each artist’s needs. Each artist’s final project is listed in the AS | US archive.
