99 Canal is a non profit artist run initiative that supports the exchange of ideas, opinions, and perspectives in New York’s emerging art scene, Chinatown. While providing affordable work studio spaces and a residency program to New York-based and international emerging artists, 99 Canal encourages artistic development while actualizing the possibility of being part of a new artistic community.

Collaborating with a wide range of creatives, we aim to build a public program that runs in parallel to its residencies. With a focus on screenings, exhibitions, and performances, our program supports interdisciplinary practices while providing the audience with opportunities to experience and engage through participation and reflection. We aim to strengthen our artistic community by encouraging proposals that pursue new directions and exhibit critical work.

99 Canal’s program is comprised of three long term studios for New York based artists and one short term residency program for international artists. An open call will be announced for the short term program at the end of each trimester. For more information about the program please address to 99canalstreet@gmail.com
