I'm Angel Lartigue, an artist born and raised in Houston TX. Recently I've been accepted to take part of the residency, SymbioticA, at the University of Western Australia in Perth. I am raising money for my travel expenses, living costs and residency bench fees for SymbioticA. The residency asks for a three month minimum stay but planning to stay at least a full six months, for the 2019 semester starting August. Founded by two bioartists, Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr, the residency is the first of its kind, an experimental artistic laboratory where researchers from all over the world create space, ask questions and critically engage with the life sciences. This residency will greatly benefit my current artistic projects and will be a stepping stone into furthering my career. Unfortunately there aren't many outlets and grant programs for artist residencies especially for emerging artists. Being a first generation Texan accepted for this type of residency is important not only for me but also speaks for the greater Houston arts community. I want to create this opportunity for myself because the time is now, and I need your help!
