Photolucida is super excited to offer a new Critical Mass award this year in collaboration with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation!

One photographer from the Critical Mass 2014 finalist group will be awarded a one-month residency in 2015-2016 as part of the Residency program that takes place on the Captiva Island (Florida) property, where Robert Rauschenberg lived and worked for almost 40 years.

Ten artists are in residence at one time – each of the selected residents brings a distinct artistic focus to the space and the theory is that creativity and innovation develops out of community and interaction. Residents receive a stipend, transportation, meals, housing, and studio space – studios can accommodate both digital and non-digital practice for photographers.

This is a prestigious opportunity and we are so pleased to have it as part of our Critical Mass programming. We admire Rauschenberg’s career-long interest in collaborative creativity and we are happy that the Residency is inclusionary of the photographic medium as a visual art.
