MFA Art Practice at the School of Visual Arts invites emerging and mid-career artists working in all disciplines to apply for the inaugural Art Practice Artist-in-Residence program. One artist will be selected to be the Artist-in-Residence for the duration of the Art Practice program’s summer semester. The residency period will be June 12 through August 4, 2017. The Artist-in-Residence will receive a studio, access to the facilities, including the Metal Shop, Wood Shop, Digital Sculpture Center, Digital Editing Lab, Fibers Lab, Ceramics Lab and Nature and Technology Lab, and a 2500 USD stipend. He or she is expected to engage with the SVA Art Practice community, participate in weekly group critiques, and develop a project with first-year MFA candidates in the program, which will culminate in a public presentation (exhibition, screening, performance, book launch, etc.).
Detailed application requirements and residency responsibilities can be found at: www.artpractice.sva.edu.
The Art Practice program at SVA is a low-residency, interdisciplinary graduate program. A carefully selected, small group of candidates come together at SVA’s NYC campus for three successive, intensive summer residency periods. In the intervening fall and spring semesters, students engage in required, rich-media online coursework from all over the world. Participants combine personal narrative with critical theory to create works that comment on social issues.
MFA Art Practice aims to facilitate a global conversation about the arts. Ultimately, the program aims foster an atmosphere of risk-taking and experimentation, and to create a community of artists and culture producers who look beyond a consensus driven approach to how we define what’s important in contemporary art.
