Jury's Statement

The jury was happy to be able to come together in person and appreciates the patience of the applicants to finally receive the results of the selection process. The members of the jury were impressed by the standard of the numerous entries in the fields of Fine Art and Architecture and the high interest in one of the most prestigious residence programs awarded by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Arts and Culture, Civil Service and Sport (BMKOES) “We specifically would like to mention the emphasis many of the submissions placed on connecting pressing urgencies in contemporary artistic and architectural practice to the socio-cultural landscape of the city of Los Angeles and the wider region of Southern California. It has been intriguing to see how many of the projects proposed to utilize their residencies for the development of yet untested investigative approaches and interdisciplinary formats. Topics raised included issues of ecology, questions of uneven urban development, tensions between the private and the public, the interior and the exterior, and how identity, gender and queerness is mediated within the city.”
