Seeking artists for 1-month residencies between September 2015 and May 2016
For 2016/17, the IAIA Artist-in-Residence Program seeks artists for 1-month residencies taking place on the IAIA campus in Santa Fe, New Mexico between September 2016-April 2017.
This residency program has the following geographic restrictions: the artist must be a Native American or First Nations artist from one of the following regions:
– Southwest (Arizona, New Mexico, Southern California)
Residencies include: $3000 Stipend, housing, meal plan for one person, car rental (if needed), a $200 budget for gas during residency, studio space on campus, $500 materials budget, and airfare to and from IAIA.
Activities for the Artist-in-Residence include: Opening and Closing Receptions, One Public Workshop/Demonstration, Two classroom Workshop/Demonstrations, One Student Critique session, and participation in residency program assessment. This is not a teaching position. This is an opportunity for artists to make their own work while participating in the IAIA community.
This program provides opportunities for Native and First Nations artists from the selected regions to come to the Institute of American Indian Arts campus in Santa Fe, New Mexico for a month of art-making and interaction with IAIA students, staff/faculty, and the Santa Fe arts community.Applicants whose work engages with cultural traditions through materials, techniques and/or subject matter are particularly encouraged to apply.
The application deadline for these Residencies is April 22, 2016 at midnight, so please apply now if you are interested.
