As a leading artist-run and artist-centric space, The Luminary supports exceptional ideas and initiatives by providing dedicated time, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment. The program is open to all artists, curators and critics, but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and para-institutional practices. They are looking for applicants interested in expanding the idea of the institution in the present, exploring the borders of contemporary art and the means in which it circulates and embodying radical and equitable practices of care, collectivity, and collaboration.
The Luminary works closely with each resident to facilitate the space, knowledge and collaborative opportunities with artists, curators, local residents and other organizations necessary for their work. Residents are provided well-equipped studios, housing, numerous opportunities for public engagement such as lectures, solo exhibitions, studio visits and workshops, as well as modest stipends.
