New York’s Governor’s Island

From May 26 to September 10, Art Kibbutz’s Summer Residency will offer a shared, multidisciplinary space where artists can experience a retreat-style residency just a short ferry ride from the frenetic buzz of New York City. With studios for visual artists, writers, composers, performing artists as well as a presentation space, the building is a welcome place for artists and the public alike.

While on Governor’s Island, artists can create new works and develop their practice, drawing inspiration from the unique location, as well as the community of fellow artists-in-residence. Art Kibbutz and artists-in-residence welcomes visitors on Sundays to enjoy the Governor’s Island Open Studios events, lectures, artist talks, meet the artists and learn about their work.
