Visual Arts Thematic Residency

Get LIT! Language, Image, Text

How are contemporary artists using words and language to disrupt, protest, fight, evoke, comment, critique, share and communicate? Where do these conversations sit today?

Led by faculty Joi Arcand, Whess Harman, August Klintberg and Michael Turner, Visual Arts Thematic Residency – Get LIT! Language, Image, Text invites visual artists working in all mediums to explore language, image, words and text through self-directed studio practice and research-creation.

This program offers a structured space where visual artists come together to create work and discuss the pertinent theme, as well as time and space to delve deeply into their practice while away from the constraints of everyday life. Through peer interaction, studio work, formal lectures and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.
