RAID Wants YOUPosted: November 23, 2011
Artist-run contemporary art space and international artists residency RAID Projects has a unique and immediate opportunity for an artist looking to become more involved with the thriving alternative art community of Los Angeles.
Overseen by artist-directors Jason Ramos and Carrie McILwain, RAID Projects is an artist co-operative where participants reside, work, and maintain their studio practice within its facility, living communally among the resident artists and studio-renters. We currently have a live-work space available for an artist interested in sharing in the operational costs and actively participating in helping to realize RAID’s exhibition, residency, and related programs and events. The ideal candidate will be a working artist who will share in the communal duties of life at RAID, help facilitate our international residency program, and other events, discussion groups, film screenings and eventually initiate exhibitions and curatorial projects.
Situated within a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony, the selected applicant will share in the rent and other costs required to maintain overhead. The current room and studio offered will be rented at $900 per month, which includes a 300sqft studio space and separate 200sq ft living accommodation, on site kitchen, bathroom, shower, washing machine, included utilities, wi-fi, cable television and use of common areas and facilities.
We need an independent, ambitious and highly motivated individual that wants to participate directly and powerfully in the LA art scene.
If this sounds like an opportunity you wish to explore, please contact RAID Projects directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The studio space will be available Dec 1st – the room will be available January 1st (possibly sooner). Temporary living accommodations can be made during the December gap if necessary.
