BE A GOOD HOST TO YOURSELF, TO OTHERS, AND TO ARTWORK

 

Who We Are

The Hosting is an experimental artist residency program based in Ypsilanti, Michigan. We work with artists of all mediums, providing studio space and a curriculum that promotes accountability and sustainability in the life of the artist. Our mission it to be a good host to yourself, to others, and to art.

 

Where We Came From

The Hosting was founded in 2016 by Anya Klapischak in her one bedroom apartment in downtown Ann Arbor. By 2018, The Hosting had hosted three artist residents and closed its 20th art show. In February 2019 The Hosting received its non-profit status and moved into a studio and gallery space in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

 

Where We’re Going

The Hosting’s official programming kicked off September 5th 2019. Our programming is presented in two parts: internal and external.

Our internal programming takes the shape of the artist residency program. We work with one artist per season, providing studio space for three months at a time. Our 2019-2020 residency program is focused on working with female-identifying artists. The external programming is based in free monthly community events including an open critique night and an art movie night.

 

All are welcome. Always.
