Since its inception, the program’s curatorial team has worked to develop a robust commissioning program for Montalvo and the greater Bay Area. These commissions encourage the development of ambitious new work, and provide opportunities to reinvest in and amplify the voices of LAP artists beyond their time spent in residency.
The LAP welcomes over eighty artists a year from around the world to our facilities. LAP Fellows are selected through a competitive two tier juried nomination process while Guest Artists arrive through a curated invitation process. LAP artists have the unique opportunity to bring collaborators with them into residence. We also host creative teams and support them to incubate and develop new work and projects. Through the generous support of the Andy Warhol Foundation, the LAP is currently working on a new initiative with select artists to assemble their own team of creative contributors. These cohorts will take over the entire residency for the sole purpose of embarking on an open-ended thematic investigation, an artistically driven think tank.
