LMCC WORKSPACE: THE WOOLWORTH BUILDING





Space provided by The Witkoff Group





Residency Dates


Session B: October 2003 – March 2004


Deadline for application materials (due at LMCC by 4:00 pm): September 5,
2003





Overview


In spring 2003 LMCC renewed its program of innovative site-oriented artist
residencies by granting selected artists the unique opportunity to work high
above lower Manhattan in the historic Woolworth Building.





The tallest building in the world when completed in 1913, the Woolworth’s
signature neo-Gothic spire still holds sway in downtown’s skyline, its
delicate latticework accentuated by blocky profiles of surrounding
skyscrapers. Financed by Frank W. Woolworth’s five-and-dime empire, the
“Cathedral of Commerce” meshed state-of-the-art modern invention, including
the tallest single-track elevator and self-contained climate and electrical
systems, with opulent old-world details like an underground Turkish bath and
an elaborate marble and mosaic interior design. The Woolworth is located on
Broadway at Park Place near City Hall. For views of the studio space, please

In uncharacteristically raw, open-format space on the 33rd floor, generously
donated by The Witkoff Group, twelve artists will be invited to work on new
projects that actively engage with the environment, the exceptional views,
and the aesthetic dynamics created by the site. There are 360<pi> views onto
the former WTC site, Battery Park and the harbor, the East River and
Brooklyn, and the full expanse of Broadway as it weaves uptown. Like World
Views, LMCC’s former residency program in the World Trade Center, as well as
the recent New Views residencies in the World Financial Center and DUMBO,
Brooklyn, this program encourages an artistic/political/ theoretical
consideration of location and context and continues LMCC’s mission to
position artists in lower Manhattan, create ties between the arts and
business communities, and support the careers of artists in all fields.





What the residency offers


LMCC Workspace: The Woolworth Building is open to emerging and mid-career
artists working in all disciplines including painting, photography,
sculpture, video, installation and new media. Artists must be living within
reasonable distance from the studios during the residency term. There is no
live space.

The selection process


Twelve artists will be selected for each cycle by a panel of arts
professionals, artists, and LMCC staff. Decisions are based on artistic
merit, career stage, proposed projects or ideas, and, as this is a
site-oriented residency, how their work and proposals/ideas might relate to
the Woolworth Building and the environment of lower Manhattan. Preference
will be given to artists with flexible and active practices who currently
are without studios. Work must not distract or obstruct other residents in
the studio or building tenants nor require heavy machinery, noisy equipment,
or major construction. This opportunity is only available to artists who
have NOT been served by past LMCC residency programs.Κ Selected artists may
only participate in one session. Applicants not selected for Session A must
reapply to be considered for Session B. They will be juried separately.
