My days in New York as part of apexart's Inbound Residency Program

Try Walking in New York Shoes
Apexart Inbound Residency 2012 
This year I had the chance to participate in Apexart's inbound residency program .

Residency Philosophy
The apexart Residency is an alternative educational program that invites individuals to leave their familiar surroundings for a month-long stay in a foreign country. The Residency Program has two components, an Inbound Residency and an Outbound Residency, and the goal is to provide participants with an opportunity to experience a new culture rather than creating new work. The program recognizes the necessity of time for contemplation in the creative process and residents are asked to consider their stay as a break from their professional life. In lieu of applying the pressure of production and career promotion, apexart’s program provides a more introspective and academic alternative that encourages residents to take a step back to consider, interpret, and discuss artistic work and practices.

Residents are asked to keep a blog for the duration of their program and to give a final talk at the end of their residency.

Inbound Residency
apexart's Inbound residency program is focused on cultural exchange and new experiences, providing an intense, explorative journey into New York. Up to eight individuals are invited per season and each is provided with air fare, an apartment in Manhattan, a phone, internet access, and a full itinerary complete with places to visit, events to attend, professionals to meet with, and classes to sit in.
