Zygote accepts applications for two Printmaking Residency Open Call per year, (typically) one in Summer and one in Winter. Qualified artist residents should be printmakers in the U.S. or abroad with the aim to work on a special project in Zygote’s Cleveland facilities.
These residencies include free housing in the Zygote Press Artist Share Space (ZPASS) loft apartment — a live-work accommodation above the E. 30th St. studio — as well as a stipend and full access to the shop for two weeks. In exchange, residents give a lecture or demonstration, donate one work created at Zygote to the archive and donate one work to the store. Additional Zygote funding is not available for travel costs. The precise 2-week time slot of residencies will be agreed upon by Zygote’s Residency Director and the selected artist based on the availability of ZPASS.
