Flux Factory is a 26 year old Arts Non-­Profit, artist collective and international residency program located in Long Island City, Queens, NYC, one subway stop away from Manhattan. Flux Factory is committed to building a sustainable community for diverse cultural producers, including visual artists, builders, curators, community organizers, chefs, activists, musicians, writers, Researchers and more.

2020 has been a complicated and challenging year for all of us, including Flux Factory. To ensure the safety of our community, we have not invited any new residents since we shut down in March. By adhering to public health guidance about how to be together safely, we are excited to be able to invite a limited number of new Artists-in-Residence to join the Flux Factory family in 2021.

COVID safety protocols will be in place. For full details about how these will affect the residency, please email 

Flux Factory is seeking applications for Residency durations of between three and six months. Each Artist-in-Residence will have access to a private studio (studio fees apply), be invited to hold a solo exhibition or curator other programming in our Gallery, apply to curate Flux Factory exhibitions, access professional development opportunities such as studio visits with New York arts professionals, tap into extensive peer-to-peer resource sharing, be invited to apply for international projects and participate in other collaborative projects.

Our labyrinthine building includes 16 studios, a gallery, silkscreen studio, wood-shop, co-working office, kitchen, library, and a rooftop garden.

Please see the Residency page for more information. If you have any questions, please contact us at

There is a monthly cost involved in participating in the Flux Factory Residency program, depending on the studio that you are assigned. Each resident is responsible for their own funding, though Flux Factory will write letters of invitation for grants and other funding opportunities, and share opportunities for additional resources if available. Flux Factory provides a stipend to each Resident for their public presentation, or to research or produce new work.
