About Art in General

Initiated in the mid-1990s as a response to the unfortunate decline of direct public funding to artists, as well as to support artistic practices involving active public participation, Art in General’s Residency Program provides the opportunity to create work in a new context and to meet and interact with art communities and audiences in New York City. This national and international Residency Program is uniquely focused in exposing artistic and creative processes, in initiating and promoting the dialogue between art and the public, and in generating a better informed and recurring audience for contemporary art.
