As part of its developing Core Program, the Modern Ancient Brown Foundation will launch its Post-Baccalaureate Residency in Studio Art and Critical Studies. The Foundation wants to support studio practitioners as well as artists seeking to develop their work in dialogue with Critical Studies. Each year, four Post-Baccalaureate Artists in Residency will be chosen for a five-month residency. As a part of the Core Program, the Post-Baccalaureate Residents will have access to our 1,000 sq ft studio space located in Southwest Detroit. Each Fall and Spring  one Resident will be chosen from Detroit and one Resident will be chosen from a national pool. The two Residents will share studio space. The Detroit Resident will receive a monthly stipend of $1,500 per month and . The  national Resident will also receive a monthly stipend of $1,500 per month along with  an additional $1,500 to help with accommodation in Detroit. Should they wish, Post-Baccalaureate Residents will have ample opportunities, facilitated as appropriate by the Foundation, to interact with the broader Metro-Detroit community of artists, writers, and scholars. The minimal commitment asked of each Resident will involve: use of the studio space; participation in crits and mentoring; a conversation at the Foundation about their work with an invited audience; participation in one curated dinner conversation at the Foundation; permission to publish some of the work undertaken at the Foundation in the Foundation’s annual publication of work by Residents, Fellows, and invited participants; and finally, we ask that the Foundation be acknowledged upon publication or exhibition of work supported by the Foundation. The program will make invitations to a diverse group of Post-Baccalaureate Residents to encourage them to take the time and space to explore their chosen media. The application cycle will begin in January 2024 with results announced in April 2024. The Foundation highly encourages BIPOC applicants.
