Artists In Residency 

Since the Beginning, 


Maker City LA is proud to announce a partnership with California Institute for The Arts (CalArts), whereby the internationally recognized institution for the performing and visual arts will program a jointCalArts/REEF/Maker City LA residency through September 2015.

This program offers CalArts graduates from the School of Critical Studies and the School of Art a unique opportunity to continue their ambitious practices in a public context as they transition from the institution. The CalArts REEF residency fosters a significant connection between writing and art making and aims to select artists whose projects require the support of a studio and resources at crucial points in their early careers.

We are thrilled to welcome the following artists into the program:

Elliot Vrendenburg – MA, School of Critical Studies, Aesthetics and Politics Program

Emerson Whitney – MFA, School of Critical Studies, Creative Writing Program

Danielle Bustillo – MFA, School of Art, Art and Technology Program

Eve Lauryn La Fountain –MFA, School of Art, Photo and Media Program and School of Film/Video, Film/Video Program

These graduates promise to fulfill diverse and engaged studio projects over the next six months. We look forward to seeing their work as they progress through their residencies.

The next CalArts REEF residency will begin from October 1st 2015 to September 29th 2016. Call for proposals will be made public in the coming months.

The current residency runs April – September, 2015 in Suite 1150
