Opportunities : Residencies : The Artist Residency Project: School of Visual Arts (SVA)


Online residency program: July 7–August 7, 2020

Priority application deadline: May 15

Applications are now available for the Artist Residency Project, SVA's new online residency program. This fully online residency program has been designed for fine artists working across discipline, medium and platform. While the ability to travel and gather in person remains an uncertainty for many, the Artist Residency Project aims to deliver a robust residency experience to participants all over the world directly through online platforms. Working with SVA’s distinguished faculty, participants will be encouraged to develop their practice without regard to limitations of location or the necessity for travel. The goal of the program is to create an inclusive online space where artists can thrive, nurture their practice and build an active, engaged community across borders.

Faculty will conduct remote studio visits and discuss each participant's work on an individual basis, as well as facilitate group critiques and reading groups. Alongside these visits, daily activities and ways to connect will keep participants engaged with their community of artists, and a cohort of professional mentors spanning the fields of art, design and contemporary practice. Special lectures by guest artists, critics and gallery directors will provide further insight into the realities of the working artist in the present moment. Limited to 20 participants.

The priority application deadline is May 15, 2020. Applications will continue to be reviewed on a rolling basis until the program has been filled. Early application is highly recommended.

Note: A portfolio is required for review and acceptance to this program.
In addition to the Artist Residency Project, SVA is offering additional online residencies during Summer 2020: Illustration and Visual Narrative: Art and Industry and Design Writing and Research.
