Opportunities → Workspace Artists-in-Residence


Applications are now open for our 2023 Workspace Artist-in-Residence program through December 11 2022.


About This Program


Each year, Center for Book Arts awards up to five New York-based emerging artists with space, time, and financial support to explore the production and exhibition of artists’ books and related work in a year-long residency.

This program promotes experimentation in making book art—thus artists from all disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. CBA especially encourages applications from artists of culturally diverse backgrounds.

Our workspace Artists-in-Residence are selected by an independent panel of artists, curators, and professionals in the field. The 2022 cohort was selected by:
