Distributed Identities

Visual Arts

The Distributed Identities residency is for visual artists whose work questions the role of culture, history, and gender in determining the communities with which we identify, participate, and create.

The program will explore transcultural aesthetics, autobiography, migration and displacement, hybridity and fluidity, as well as relationships between language, history, and identity. In addition, the residency will examine how artistic practice can change in relation to our shifting and evolving sense of self in today’s world.

What does the program offer?

Residencies offer structured programs where visual artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.

This program is designed for participation over the entire program period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is suitable for artists with an exhibition record who have had formal training in visual arts, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers.

Program Dates: February 25 – March 29, 2019
