New Art City's residency program provides virtual space, mentorship and a stipend to artists making work which engages marginalized identity or involves collective or facilitatory practice. The aim of the New Art City Residency is to offer funding and technical resources to artists with interdisciplinary practices in new and traditional media, for whom showing work on the web presents technical or financial barriers. We are interested in facilitating both virtual-first installations, virtual exhibitions of existing work, and hybrid exhibitions which don’t follow a conventional format.

San Francisco, CA
Heesoo is a multimedia artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2017. Her practice centers around an autobiographical feminist religion which she instituted, called Leymusoom. She facilitates collective ritual performances with followers of her religion, and uses avatars of her female ancestors, 3D scans of significant personal spaces, and 3D rendered virtual worlds to process her own experiences with gender, patriarchy, and generational memory. She constructs a virtual utopia in which digitized memories become sites of metamorphosis and communion with ancestors, while supporting her followers in the creation of their own personal Leymusoom.
