Building connections and conversations between artists, collectors, and designers.
Est. 2004

LPP+ Residency

Since 2004, Little Paper Planes has connected artists and collectors, sharing the excitement of collecting artwork, prints, handmade objects and ephemera. In our ninth year, LPP expanded from an online only organization into a storefront on Valencia Street in San Francisco.  With this expansion we widened our programming to include a residency within the new physical location.

 

The LPP + Residency offers a diverse group of makers – artists, curators, collectives, photographers, writers, performers, participatory/social practice, musicians, craftspeople. – the opportunity to cultivate ideas and work in a month-long residency in San Francisco. Residents receive space to set up a workshop, studio, or office. Expanding on our commitment in helping artists, we felt it was important to offer free space to encourage our creative community to try out new projects or just have a place to work.   

 

From May 2013-November 2014, the residency was housed in the back of the shop which created an interesting dynamic between the residents and the public.  The residents used the opportunity to engage with the local community at large. In March 2015, LPP partnered up with Adobe Books & Arts Cooperative to host the LPP+ Residency.  Adobe has been an integral platform for artists since 1989 so it was an exciting partnership for us.  It was a special time while the residency was there which included performances, workshops, artist talks, exhibitions, and tea tastings! 

 

For 2016 we are excited to announce that the LPP+ Residency has a permanent home at the new Minnesota Street Project studios which opened in June. The residents will have access to kilns, a wood shop, digital media center, and of course all the stellar artists also in the studio building. Across the street there are a ton of galleries as well so the residents get to be a part of this new and exciting art hub here in San Francisco! 

 

Little Paper Planes provides support to assist with screenings, readings, lectures and workshops during the course of the residency.  Open to individuals and groups, the resident(s) will give a talk during their residency. Each residency culminates with a publication and/or print edition published by LPP as an extension of the residency.  SFMOMA’s Library and Archives collect all publications.

 

 

For all the residency submissions:  We receive a large volume of applicants with only a few openings.  We had three past residents (Jenni Rope, Naomi Clark, and Dorothy Santos for 2016) (Stairwell's, Emily Tareila, and Brendan Mullins for 2015) choose their top five and Kelly chose  from the fifteen. 

 

LPP+ Residency was a recipient of Round 7 for the Alternative Exposure Grant Program

 

The Chetwood has been a generous partner in assisting our out of town residents with housing.
