Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Charlotte Street Foundation is pleased to announce the selection of 23 visual artists, 5 writers, and 11 performing artists and ensembles for year-long Charlotte Street Foundation studio residencies, to begin September 2014. Charlotte Street Foundation’s Studio Residency Program provides free studios, rehearsal space, and related support for artists of all disciplines in downtown Kansas City. The 2014-15 residents, selected through a competitive process beginning with an open call for applications, include some artists relocating to Kansas City.
To kick off the new studio residency year, the public is invited to meet the artists and learn about their work at a free “Studio Residents Slide Slam” Wednesday, September 17, 7:00pm at Charlotte Street’s la Esquina gallery, 1000 West 25th Street. This fun, informal evening will feature 3-minute (timed) slide presentations (10 slides per artist) by 38 of the incoming studio resident artists—thus providing a rapid-fire introduction to the work, ideas, processes and personalities of these diverse artists.
