In Joshua Tree, CA, BoxoPROJECTS offers a residency for artists working across diverse media. The residency at BoxoHOUSE affords the artist the freedom to explore their practice in an open and welcoming framework. Beyond the inspiration of the landscape, Joshua Tree has a thriving community of artists, writers, musicians, and independent thinkers. This community is available to share a wealth of experience related to the key elements of site, community and environmental matters.
Artists exploring issues of site, community and the environment are prioritized.
In developing their ideas, artists are invited to consult the Mojave Desert Land Trust’s guidelines for artists working in the desert. Link
The residency is located in close proximity to the Joshua Tree National Park and the village of Joshua Tree.
Each residency offers an artist 2 to 4 weeks of accommodation in a guesthouse and studio space. Occasional meals are provided and the guesthouse has a full kitchen.
Residents should budget for the fee, transportation, materials and food. Fee scholarships are available based on need. It is required that the artist have a vehicle available at all times.
BoxoPROJECTS works with residency artists to find opportunities for exhibition of their works in several cities including New York, Los Angeles and Palm Springs.
Site specific projects and programming at BoxoHOUSE additionally includes opening to, and interacting with, the local community and a regional audience in some way during the residency.
Residencies are currently offered by invitation and we are not currently reviewing unsolicited proposals.
Artists’ residencies are an invaluable asset to cultural exchange. They permit artists to develop a deeper understanding of the Joshua Tree community while at the same time creating opportunities to share insights and educate the audience about their own cultural experiences. BoxoPROJECTS acknowledges that inequity exists in the art world and is committed to diversity and inclusion. We offer opportunities to artists without regard to race, sexual orientation or identity, religion, national origin, gender, or physical limitations.
BoxoPROJECTS is proud to be a partner of the Mojave Desert Land Trust in its Reading the Landscape initiative. Click on the decal below for more info
