Our Athens Residency provides Visual Art and Curatorial Residency Fellowships of fully-funded live/work spaces that allow artists, curators, and scholars to be immersed in-and consequently respond to–the ongoing cultural renaissance taking place in Athens.
ARCAthens Virtual Residency program (AVR) provides financial and institutional support to promote our Fellows and encourage a new dialogue through our multiple digital platforms. Launched in 2020 as a response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the AVR features artists and curators from Greece and the Bronx in conversation for one month posting daily on Instagram. The nominated curator chooses the participating artists and mediates weekly meetings among them, while the artists work with social media as their medium to create a bridge between the two vibrant communities.
NOLA/NYCBX Research Fellowship
Our NOLA/NYCBX Research Fellowship provides scholars, visual artists, and curators from Greece the fully-funded live/work opportunity to be immersed in the cultural capital of the world, New York City, in our headquarters in the Bronx for one month, and an additional month-long immersion in New Orleans, a stunning city famed for both its historical significance as well as its leadership in contemporary art and culture.
