ARTIST-IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM
Movement Research's Artist-in-Residence program is a two-year residency that provides commissions, rehearsal space, performances, professional development opportunities and peer dialogue, all of which are designed to support the individualized creative process of movement-based artists.
Each year, six Artists-in-Residence are selected through an open application process by a rotating panel of peer artists. The selected artists receive support from the Jerome Foundation and must fit the Foundation's definition of an emerging artist.
Three additional Artists-in-Residence are invited by Movement Research to apply for opportunities through the New York State Council on the Arts and the Mertz-Gilmore Foundation.
Additional support for the Artist-in-Residence program is provided by the Davis/Dauray Family Fund, the Harkness Foundation for Dance, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
The Movement Research 2016 Van Lier Fellows are:
