Opportunities → Book Artist-in-Residence

Each year, the Center for Book Arts awards 2 residencies to artists who have demonstrated a commitment to the book arts as a key component of their artistic practice.

The Book Artist Residency has a goal to fortify the practice of early career artists in the book arts, to provide access to professional equipment, financial support, specialized training, career advancing opportunities, space to work, and to strengthen and diversify the community of book artists working within the New York area.

This year long residency includes a cash stipend, materials budget, tuition waiver for all courses offered at CBA during the residency period, and 24-hour access to CBA printing and binding studios in Manhattan.

Book Artists-in-Residence are expected to actively utilize the studios and to complete an artist project by the end of the residency period to be included in a group exhibition.

We are currently receiving applications for 2024 Book Artist-in-Residence. Deadline: October 2, 2023.

The 2024 cohort was selected by a panel of independent professionals in the book arts: Rhonda Khalifeh, artist and former CBA Resident, Yusuf Hassan Artist, Publisher and former Artist-in-Residence; Isabella Nimmo Associate Curator at Amant Foundation; and Alexandra Rosemberg, Executive Director at Center for Performance Research.
