American arts organisation the Amant Foundation is accepting applications for its 2022-23 studio and research residency programme. The organisation provides an environment for international practitioners to conduct their artistic research in New York for three months.


Interested applicants should submit a specific research proposal outlining their interests and intentions during the residency. The proposal can only be submitted via Amant’s application system, which is available once a year.

The candidates will be selected by a professional committee, which includes director of The Showroom Elvira Dyangani Ose, and London and Amant’s internal senior team.

Note: Due to the large number of applicants, Amant will not provide individual feedback. Only the selected artists will be contacted after the open call.


Amant also supports each resident’s artistic research by facilitating access to relevant institutions, archives, and scholars in New York City,” Amant says. “By listening to and engaging with the many perspectives the city has to offer, each artist has the opportunity to enrich their creative practice and gain access to New York’s world-renowned art scene.”

  • Performance

Successful applicants will receive:

  • Individual studios, a private communal area and access to outdoor spaces within Amant’s campus.
