Artist Residency: Call for Artists

Artist in Residence at Shoebox Projects at the Brewery, Los Angeles California

Shoebox Projects is an alternative art space founded in 2016 by Kristine Schomaker. In association with Shoebox Arts and Art and Cake, the residency is designed to allow contemporary artists time and space to create new work and experiment with new ideas.

Artists may submit a proposal for a project which will utilize the space as a studio to create new work. 

Proposals must have a contemporary art focus showing experimentation and career reach for the artist. We are especially interested in projects that involve social practice and push the artists’ work into new arenas of practice or theory. 

Program Goals

  • To offer support and space to artists who are ready to move their work forward in the contemporary art landscape;
  • To encourage artists to experiment and explore their concepts amongst a community of artists.


  • The residency is open to Southern California artists only (This is studio space only)
  • We are interested in artists who show a strong drive to move their career forward;
