Why Residence in Place? At a time when artist residencies the world over are in question, pending, or simply cancelled, Art Music Lit Space welcomes submissions from artists/musicians/writers for an at-home residency which will provide structure similar to traditional residencies. This is an opportunity for the resident to connect with a community of artists and intellectuals with whom they can share and discuss work.
Inherent in the artist's process are the entwined potentials for both magical transformation and failure. We encourage the artist-in-residence to wholeheartedly pursue their curiosity, welcoming both potentials. Residence in Place will serve to further envision the possibilities and expand the realities of AML Space's virtual art community.
