Artists for Triangle Residency Announced
In the fall of 2014 the FCINY added more residency opportunities for artists by starting a partnership with Triangle Residency located in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
This partnership, funded by The Finnish Cultural Foundation (Suomen Kulttuurirahasto), aims to benefit Finnish artists as well as the artist community at Triangle by creating an international network of professional artists. Furthermore, this collaboration will provide the artists with an apartment, a studio at the Triangle Residency and a grant for the three-month duration of the residency.
Artists for the term 2016–18 were chosen by the jury of Triangle Residency.

Triangle Arts Association is a not-for-profit arts organization whose mission is to support emerging and mid-career international and national visual artists, encouraging dialogue and experimentation through workshops, residencies and exhibition opportunities.
Triangle Residency was created in 2002. The residency offers spacious studios for artists to realize large-scale, long-term projects and provides a collegial working environment. Each artist’s stay culminates in an Open Studio exhibition to which the general public is invited. Resident artists will also receive studio visits from critics, writers and curators.
The Finnish Cultural Institute in New York has been running its own residency program for Finnish artists, designers and architects in New York City since its establishment in 1990. The aim of the program is to offer a creative working and research period, as well as networking opportunities in a new cultural context for professionals in all stages of their career. Since its initiation, FCINY’s residency program has hosted over six hundred Finnish or Finland-based visual arts professionals.
In 2012, the Institute launched another residency program in collaboration with the Alfred Kordelin Foundation and the International Studio and Curatorial Program ISCP. This program is specially tailored to meet the needs of Finnish or Finland-based artists. The residencies run for six months and allow the artists a more concentrated period of work by granting them a studio space at the ISCP, an apartment in Williamsburg as well as a grant for material expenses.
