Swing Space

Launched in 2005, with generous support from the downtown real estate community and LMCC’s programming partners, Swing Space has placed over 1,000 artists in more than 25 different locations throughout Lower Manhattan and on Governors Island. Swing Space was designed to address short-term space needs for a wide range of projects and to encourage creative, experimental, and collaborative approaches to artistic practice in unconventional spaces. Swing Space was a project-based residency program that placed visual and performing artists and arts groups in space for the development and presentation of new projects and provided artists with space, publicity and public programs, and access to specialized support and resources.
