Interested in a studio?

Due to the demand for studios, both at Autotelic North (1856 N. Richmond) and Autotelic West (3551 W. Diversey), we are requiring all interested artists to send us a letter of inquiry outlining yourself as an artist and why you are interested in becoming a member of the Autotelic community.   Your letter should:

  • Introduce yourself

  • Describe the kind of work you make.  What media do you work with?  What does it work look like?  What is your work about?

  • Enumerate some of your accomplishments.  What are your most notable exhibitions, residencies, publications, etc.?

  • Identify which studio building you are interested in working at (Get specs for each location below)

  • Identify the type of studio you are interested in renting (desk space, communal studio, private studio)

  • Explain why you are interested in working at Autotelic.  What about Autotelic makes it the kind of place you’d like to work out of?

  • Describe which resources you are most interested in through Autotelic

  • Indicate whether you would be willing to work in another studio building / kind of studio than the one you describe in your letter.

Please save your letter as a PDF and email it to MAKE@autotelicstudios.org, with subject line “(Your name) (Autotelic address you are interested applying for) Letter of Inquiry.”  In addition to attaching your letter, please include a link to your website, or to a site that has documentation of your work.

The selection committee may contact you for more information, or ask to meet with you for an informal interview.  Please contact us at MAKE@autotelicstudios.org for more information or questions.

Thank you again, and good luck!
