TILT Institute Artist in Residence

AIR Program 2024 – 2025

TILT Institute for the Contemporary Image invites artists to submit applications to our annual artist-in-residence program. The AIR Program provides support to talented, self-directed, committed artists of all levels who are advancing contemporary photography by incorporating innovative approaches to making in their practice and whose work is aligned with our core values of diversity, equity, accessibility, inclusion, and justice.

Participants receive a stipend, access to high-end digital facilities/equipment, a platform to share their work with the public through an open studio, and time/space to reflect upon how they want to expand their practice. We hope to create a transformative experience for each artist that participates in the program during and beyond their residency.

Applications are accepted Wednesday, May 22, 2024 through Tuesday, July 2, 2024 at 11:59pm EST. Selected artists will be notified by July 26, 2024.

Support for the AIR Program is made possible by the Joy of Giving Something Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
