Popps Packing offers residencies for emerging, mid-career, and established, visual artists interested in an immersive experience within the cities of Hamtramck and Detroit, Michigan. Residencies are usually 1-2 months long and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis unless stated otherwise. To learn more about the different residency programs we offer, please follow the links on the residencies tab on the sidebar menu.
Our approach includes a philosophical reinterpretation of blight, not as an affliction, but a starting point that provides raw materials and inspiration for performances, traditional and nontraditional installations, and architectural interventions within the surrounding neighborhood. This is not a traditional commercial gallery space.
The opportunity to engage with raw spaces and join the conversation about emotional, artistic, and economic recovery in a post-‐industrial landscape is a major draw of the Popps Residency Program.
Please note that Popps Packing is an inclusive space for all and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, creed, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity in its programs and activities.
