THE LUMINARY CENTER FOR THE ARTS RESIDENCY PROGRAM
The Luminary Center for the Arts Residency Program supports exceptional emerging artists, curators and critics engaging the world of contemporary art by providing dedicated time and a supportive working environment. The program is open to all artistic, curatorial and critical practices 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 socially engaged practices. The Luminary staff work 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 private studios, housing and many opportunities for public engagement such as lectures, solo exhibitions, studio visits and workshops.
Applications are due December 31st, 2013 for residencies in 2014.
To apply, please download the electronic application and email it with all supporting materials to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note there is a non-refundable $25 application fee.

An international residency exchange has been developed to create an exchange of opportunities between artists, curators and organizations in St. Louis and another international city. In most cases both residency accommodations and exhibition opportunities will be provided, but each exchange will be unique. This program is currently by invitation only.
COPENHAGEN: Our inaugural exchange has been organized with artists and organizations in Copenhagen, Denmark. This past summer, St. Louis-based artist, critic and curator Daniel McGrath (AiR ‘12) was hosted in Denmark at the Copenhagen Artist in Residency (CPH AIR) Program with an exhibition at Sydhavn Station in July, a new artist-run exhibition space for contemporary art located in an active train station. Currently, Copenhagen-based artist and curator, Heidi Hove (a member of Sydhavn Station) is being hosted in St. Louis, MO at The Luminary with an exhibition now open at Isolation Room/Gallery Kit, an exhibition venue located within Daniel McGrath and Dana Turkovic’s dining room.
