Applications Closed – How to Apply 

Atlantic Center for the Arts hosts Residency #185 with Mentoring Artists Phillip Ewell – music theorist/performer, Patrick Martinez – visual artist, Eileen Myles – poet/writer, and 18 Associate Artists from across the United States. During their three-week stay, the Associate Artists will spend a portion of the day working with the Mentoring Artists, in group meetings, workshops, casual conversations, and activities to expand their work.

Phillip Ewell, music theorist/performer – “Ewell’s research specialties include critical-race studies, Russian music and music theory, modal theory, hip-hop, and popular music, and cello performance. He has over 30 published items in top journals in the U.S. and abroad. His most recent work entails a critical-race examination of music theory.”

Patrick Martinez, visual artist – “Through a study of the lack of diverse representation in historical portrait painting, a medium traditionally used to celebrate one’s successes and wealth, Martinez was led to the portrait cake paintings. The cake acts as a globally and socio-economically understood medium of celebration, now featuring the faces of not only white historical figures but the faces of freedom fighters of all races.” – NY Art Beat

Eileen Myles, poet“Myles is often referred to as an “institution”—the way one speaks of a terrific restaurant that’s endured the waves of gentrification as a “New York institution.” But the word bounces off them: there is nothing official about them, nothing staid or still. They are exemplary for more and more young writers precisely because they have gone their own way.” – Ben Lerner, Paris Review. Eileen Myles is a Pabst Endowed Chair for Master Writers.
