Bunker Projects’ Residency provides selected artists the space and support to lead a rigorous self-directed practice for a period of 4 months or one year. The program provides a supportive platform for artists to experiment, research and develop new works for exhibition. Bunker Projects seeks out resident artists with a desire to learn and exchange with others through their art making practice while making ground breaking, ambitious contemporary art work. The environment at Bunker Projects is energetic, hands on, inclusive and strives to be a safe space for artists of all walks of life. Visual Artists of all media and discourse welcome.
The Residency Program at Bunker is unique as a residency program that serves emerging artists in a live-work format which culminates in a solo exhibition on site. The install period begins the Monday before the first Friday opening, and the show is up for just under a month.
During the exhibition, it is desired to hold at least one event of complementary programming like an artists talk, pot luck, or workshop. Programs and events may take any form including research, discussion, performance, workshops, lectures, or other collaborations. Marketing and event support is also provided by the team.
