Call for applications: 2019 Summer Art Residency

California Institute of the Arts (CalArts)

Noah Kashiani, 2018.

California Institute of the Arts welcomes applications to its 2019 Summer Art Residency, located on campus in Valencia, CA.

Led by the CalArts School of Art, this five-week residency offers an opportunity for emerging and/or mid-career artists working in all disciplines to advance their work in an immersive studio environment. The Summer Art Residency enables you to construct your own experience by selecting from a dynamic program of events, field trips, workshops, seminars and independent studio time, supported by access to diverse creative practitioners.

With an explorative philosophy that allows you to concentrate on your work in an innovative and focused environment, this residency facilitates self-directed inquiry, enabling you to shape a unique residency experience that challenges and develops your practice in new ways. The residency is ideal for those seeking the time and resources to investigate new ideas and deepen existing inquiries into the conception, production and reception of work, providing concentrated time to develop a project with structured support, feedback and conversation. The CalArts campus offers a diversity of resources for artists providing access to production studios and a shop equipped with wood and metal working tools. The school’s proximity to Los Angeles provides easy access to a vibrant community of world-class museums, a robust arts scene, and varied geological sites such as beaches, mountains and desert.

Program fees cover access to a private studio/workspace, shop access, residency coordination, and some meals (organized around events) for the duration of the residency. This residency is not available for credit.

The residency fee for 2019 is set at 3,300 USD for five weeks.
