Rauschenberg Residency 381

Scholar Residency

The Scholar Residency supports graduate students across the country who are nearing completion of their dissertations on post-war art. By providing up to five weeks of dedicated time to write, the residency helps support scholarship that reflects the Foundation’s own aspiration to provide alternatives to the canonical and to celebrate new and even untested ways of thinking and acting.

In 2023-2024, the Foundation's NYC location was made available as an alternative to individuals that were selected and invited to participate in the 2022-2023 Scholar Residency in Captiva, and who would be completing their dissertations before the residency reopened.

Rauschenberg Residency 381

Inspired by Rauschenberg’s iconoclastic and inclusive approach to living and working, the Rauschenberg Residency 381 integrates artists into the daily work activities of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation headquarters in New York. Conceived to be nimble in structure, each residency will uniquely reflect the artist’s project and needs.  

The Rauschenberg Residency 381 provides artists with a space to work, think, experiment, and create within Rauschenberg’s 381 Lafayette Street home and studio during Foundation business hours. The Residency is by invitation only.
