BSMT New Media Program

Established by BSMT Director Grace Franck in 2016, the Mana BSMT New Media Program (NMP) is a community-based residency dedicated to supporting the next generation of new media artists. Through ongoing support in Mana’s two-million square-foot campus, the program aims to foster innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship, and present exhibitions and programming at the intersection of art and new media technology.

BSMT Residencies

BSMT Residencies

The BSMT Residencies are 6-months to 1-year stints curated by guest artists as part of an experimental initiative to inspire collaboration among the residents. Participants are encouraged to curate their own programming, helping to shape the culture of the BSMT. Currently in residence is a group of twelve artists (known as Base 12) led by Sei and Ki Smith of Apostrophe NYC.
