Lightwork
15 October 2018

Every year Light Work invites between twelve and fifteen artists to come to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.

The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual along with an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former Artists-in-Residence is also part of the Light Work Collection.

We are pleased to announce the 2019 Light Work Artists-in-Residence:

Congratulations to Carolyn Drake, Kris Graves, Pao Her, Mark McKnight. Meryl Meisler, Rafal Milach, Zora Murff, Sarker Protick, Arpita Shah, Cian Oba-Smith, Jiehao Su, Ka-Man Tse, and Cristina Velásquez.
