Mack Art Foundation
+ 646-342-2615

The Mack Art Foundation residency program is geared towards emerging artists who do not reside in the New York City area. Spanning a period of up to 3 months, the residency provides enough time for the artists to be immersed in the city and be inspired to create new work. The mission of the MAF Residency is to help emerging artists expand their horizons and immerse them in the culture and art scene of New York City. MAF will make every effort to introduce artists to galleries, curators, collectors and help them create community projects with local organizations. At the culmination of the residency, each artist will donate a single work, that will remain as part of the Mack Art Foundation collection.

The Mack Art Foundation uses community space in residential and commercial buildings, turning these non-for-profit spaces into art studios and helping to bring artists back to the communities. As art and culture are vital for all communities, the MAF Residency program enables artists to be able to live and work in New York City.

MAF provides resident artists with a 1100sf studio space as well as a studio apartment within the same building. The studio space is located on the ground floor level and features floor to ceiling windows, allowing for visibility of the artists at work from the outside and doubling as an art gallery as well. There is a private bathroom and kitchenette with microwave, fridge and coffeemaker and lounge area to sit.

Greenpoint, Brooklyn has become a culturally thriving neighborhood with burgeoning art and culinary scene. The East River ferry stops right outside the building and is only one stop away from the Manhattan side, making it a convenient and beautiful trip.

Christine Mack
Founder of Mack Art Foundation

Christine was born in the Philippines and grew up in Stockholm, Sweden before moving to New York at age 18 to attend Parsons School of Design where she earned a degree in Graphic Design and Advertising. After a stint at Hearst Publications as a graphic designer, she opened her own graphic design firm. There, she started doing pro bono work for both charities and cultural institutions.

She started collecting art more than 15 years ago, and has collaborated with many talented artists like KAWS, creating public art installations in New York City, Brooklyn and Los Angeles. She is the founder of a curatorial platform, Space2Create, that re-imagines the traditional art exhibition by taking advantage of vacant retail and commercial space.

Christine serves on the board of numerous art museums and cultural institutions. She is passionate about children and is a board member of Child Mind Institute and is also a parent advocate for Partnership to End Addiction, where she has created parent and teen workshops.
