The very cool MASS Gallery in Austin is heading into the fifth year for its Hotbox residency program. The gallery space becomes the artist’s studio for a month during the summer. The deadline for applying is June 21.
“This open call offers up to 2 individual residency spots every summer over a 4 week period with the length of each residency determined by the particular interests of each applicant with a maximum of 4 weeks total.” Artists have 24/7 access to the space, are given an honorarium, and are expected to participate in MASS’s public engagement series called Close Encounters. “Open and broad, this prompt can be approached from a multitude of ways: performative, passive, or completely radical in execution or thought… [it’s] designed to provide a new way of encountering and understanding the creative process.” People from outside Austin can apply, though they’re expected to find their own transportation and housing for the month. MASS would like for artists to use this opportunity and its big gallery space to make work they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. For the record (despite the residency’s name), the space is air-conditioned.
