WIP Returns!

Work in Progress (WIP) residency returns! 

Work in Progress (WIP) is a window into the studio practice of contemporary artists and designers that engages the public in a dialogue with the field of textiles. 

The Work in Progress (WIP) residency is a behind the scenes look into the studio practice of contemporary artists and designers, that engages a dialogue surrounding innovation in the field of textiles. For one month, WIP residents develop and showcase their work and practice in the Brooklyn studio. Additionally, WIP residents host workshops, lectures and events for the community. The Work In Progress (WIP) residency was previously offered from 2015-2020 at TAC Manhattan.

This year the WIP Residency program once again is nestled within TAC’s Artist in Residency studios.  We have selected artists already involved in the TAC community for the rest of 2023 and we can't wait to reveal the participating artists over the next few months.

This month we are proud to announce Howard Ptaszek as our Work In Progress Resident.  Howard is at TAC most days as our Studio Manager and longtime community artist.  Meet Howard Sundays during WIP Open Studio hours 2-5pm and at Gowanus Open Studios taking place on October 20 + 21 from 12-6pm.

We are seeking WIP residents for 2024!  Check out the WIP archives to learn about past featured artists.  Stay tuned, share the call, and APPLY NOW!
