Elsewhere offers residencies for artists and creatives working across all media, fields, and disciplines to explore the museum’s immense 58-year collection of cultural and material surplus through site-specific projects that contribute to Elsewhere’s concepts and communities.

Elsewhere’s three-story museum offers an evolving environment that provides an experimental context for investigating material culture and developing new collaborative approaches. Elsewhere vitalizes its emerging downtown neighborhood and offers an exceptional place for re-thinking process and practice.

2015 Residencies include:

Southern Constellations

Six paid fellowships are allotted to artists based in the Southern United States to participate in Elsewhere’s residency to create new, experimental works at the museum and participate in dialogues on the conditions of experimental art production in the South.

South Elm Projects

By commissioning artists, designers and creatives to create site-specific interventions we are re-forming four overlooked and undervalued alleys and green spaces in Downtown Greensboro’s South Elm neighborhood.

The Residency

Emerging, individual, and collaborative teams are welcome to apply for research and project residencies using the museum’s immense 58-year collection of cultural and material surplus.

Museum as Instrument (Sound)

This special month-long residency brings a group of Chicago based sound artists to the museum to create a series of new sound works and performances at the museum that turn the building itself into a musical instrument. Shannon Stratton, an Independent Curator and the Director of Threewalls, and Joe Jeffers, a musician, producer and Director of 8550 Ohio, will co-curate the events and art works created through this residency.
