McKinney International Art and Design ResidencyDEADLINE:
The Eskenazi School of Art Architecture + Design at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for a 4-6 week McKinney International Art and Design Residency.
An established artist or designer will be selected whose primary country of residence is outside the United States. Applicants should be actively engaged in a contemporary artistic practice and show evidence of a national and international exhibition record. Applications from practitioners of studio disciplines, as well as criticism, are welcome.
The Artist-in-Residence will be selected based on the merits of their professional careers, their dedication to being part of an academic environment, and their proposal to develop and expand on their creative process utilizing the facilities, unique collections, and research centers available at Indiana University.
Selected artists are required to visit for a 4-6 week period between October 1-December 11, 2020. Studio space, lodging, and an honorarium of $5,000 USD will be provided. The program will also reimburse travel up to $2,000, cover the cost of health insurance for the length of the appointment, and purchase up to $500 in supplies through the school. Other studio expenses will be the responsibility of the successful applicant.
Selected applicants will be featured as part of the McKinney Visiting Artist Lecture Series and must remain in residence for the full period of the residency. In addition, prospective residents will coordinate with the Eskenazi School of Art + Design to offer studio visits, open studios, and a workshop based on technical/conceptual innovations.
To apply, submit a cover letter, CV, 500-word proposal, portfolio of ten images of recent work (artists) or 2 writing samples (critics/writers). Please specify date preferences and interest in studio and research facilities and how these might best support your proposal.
