Greenpoint’s Mothership NYC is a combined live-work artists’ community and event space for international creative folks across multiple disciplines. Not to mention the formerly industrial building has an amazing rooftop performance space which houses around 30 artists. NOoSPHERE Arts is an artist-run nonprofit that brings art from elsewhere to New York, and they are awarding a free month-long artist residency at Mothership. One selected international artist will live and work at Mothership for a month to produce a creative project and share it with the NYC audience, either indoors or on Mothership’s rooftop stage.
