McKinney International Art and Design Residency
Indiana University Bloomington
Deadline: March 1, 2018

The School of Art, Architecture + Design at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for a 4-6 week Fall 2018 McKinney International Art and Design Residency. The residency will select an established artist whose primary country of residency is outside of the United States. Approximate dates for Fall 2018 are October through December 15th.

Applicants should be actively engaged in 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 is selected based on the merits of their professional careers, their dedication in being part of an academic environment and their plan to develop and expand on their creative process based on facilities and access to the unique collections and research specialties available at IU. The successful applicants will remain in residence throughout the tenure of their session. Selected applicants will be featured as part of the McKinney Visiting Artist Lecture Series. In addition, prospective residents will coordinate with the School of Art, Architecture + Design to offer studio visits, open studios and a workshop based on technical/conceptual innovations.

The School of Art, Architecture + Design houses fourteen different areas of study in art, architecture, design, and merchandising. Studio art offers nine areas of focus: ceramics, digital art, graphic design, metalsmithing and jewelry design, painting, photography, printmaking, textiles, and sculpture.

To apply submit a cover letter, CV, 500 word proposal and a portfolio of ten images of recent work (artists) or 2 writing samples (critics/writers).

Applications should be Uploaded to SLIDEROOM.

*Please specify in your proposal your availability for dates, and interest in IU's studio and research facilities and how this would best support your studio practice.
