Shoebox Projects has always been a space to present alternative programming for artists. They recently opened "The Closet" in Shoebox Projects (run by The Shed Collective) as an alternative to alternative spaces to allow artists an outside-of-the-box (or inside) opportunity for creating new work in an unusual space. Creating an artist-in-residence program, Shoebox Projects offers artists space which has become an incubator for experimentation, inspiration and community.
The natural next step was to give artists an even more unique space to create work, experiment and transform their art practice. This space became the shoebox.
Approx. 40 artists will receive the artist-in-residence shoebox to consider their art practice and create new work. At the end of the residencies, August 7th, the work will be shown at Shoebox Projects in a group exhibition.
