Carlos Martiel, "Mule," performance with tree branch and iron bolt, 8 hours duration, Denniston Hill, 2016.

Our residency and public programs are organized around a curatorial concept which provides the overarching framework for our activities. Residents are selected through a nomination process based on artistic merit and how their practice intersects with the curatorial theme. We invite artists, architects, writers, and poets at any stage of their career to have time and space for engaged reflection, research, and production.  We are not accepting applications at this time. 

 Denniston Hill's residency is   made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
