Tessellate offers a series of free one-month art/design/architecture residencies each open to an individual, collaborative partnership, or small team. Tessellate invites conceptual investigations and visual art, dynamic installations and innovative discourse, social practice endeavors and site specific works. To engage the residency beyond studio practice, each artist/designer/architect will initiate a community outreach event—a project, workshop, public talk, dinner party, or any creative activity that you propose. Each residency will culminate in a public gallery exhibit or open studio event.


Residents will have access to a 400sf studio space in the backyard apartment, as well as installation space in the garage gallery and a semi-private exterior courtyard for work or relaxation.

Accommodation is provided in a private room located in a house on the property shared with other artists from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Two person teams will share a room. If you propose to bring more than two people, please specify so accommodation may be coordinated.


The application for Summer 2018 Residencies will be released in early February.  Stay tuned!
