McKinney International Art and Design Residency 2023-24

Applicants should be actively engaged in contemporary artistic practices and show evidence of an exhibition record. Deadline: February 15, 2023.

The Eskenazi School of Art Architecture + Design at Indiana University Bloomington invites applications for a 4–6-week McKinney International Art and Design Residency. An established artist or designer will be selected whose primary country of residence is outside the United States. Applicants should be actively engaged in contemporary artistic practices and show evidence of a national and international exhibition record. Applications from practitioners of studio disciplines, as well as criticism, are welcome.

Selected artists are required to visit for a 4–6-week period between February 1-May 1, 2024.

The Artist-in-Residence will be selected based on the merits of their professional careers, their dedication to being part of an academic environment, and their proposal to develop and expand on their creative process utilising the facilities, unique collections, and research centres available at Indiana University. Selected applicants will be featured as part of the McKinney Visiting Artist Lecture Series and must remain in residence for the full period of the residency. In addition, prospective residents will coordinate with the Eskenazi School of Art + Design to offer studio visits, open studios, and a workshop based on technical/conceptual innovations.

Studio space, lodging, and a fellowship of $7,000 USD will be provided. This fellowship will be distributed in two parts, one portion prior to arrival in order to assist with travel costs, and then the remaining balance will be distributed after the completion of the visit. The Eskenazi School will also provide health insurance for the length of the appointment and purchase up to $500 in supplies during the visit. Other studio expenses will be the responsibility of the successful applicant.

  • Cover letter
  • Current CV
  • 500-word proposal
  • Ten images of recent work
  • If writing is part of your practice, 2 writing samples
