Deadline: 27 Jun 2017
Application fee: $30 MLAC Members / $35 Non-Members
The Digital Artist in Residence Program was launched in 2015 in conjunction with Panorama: Image-Based Art in the 21st Century. The focus is on artists utilizing digital technology as a primary medium including video, animation, digital photography, interactive gaming platforms, virtual reality experiences, 360, motion capture applications, video-mapping and projections, and internet-based works.
Adult fine artists utilizing digital technology as a primary medium of their artwork, who are not full-time students, living in the Mid-Atlantic Region are eligible to apply.
The 2017 Digital Artist In Residence does not include a studio or housing. It is intended to be a residency that promotes the artist’s work and provides opportunities for them to have paid engagements with MLAC audiences through teaching, lectures, demonstrations, and virtual experiences for the duration of one year. Artists receive cash award when the residency is completed and must participate in the residency for its entirety. Residency begins in September of 2017 and is completed in August of 2018.
While MLAC offers a limited budget for the presentation of artwork created for the residency. It may not have the capacity to cover all technical needs. Therefore, artists are expected to work with the residency’s budget and resources or provide additional resources on their own. When a specific project for presentation is agreed upon by the artist and MLAC, budget needs and required resources will be determined accordingly.
Application includes digital submission of the following: artist statement, biography, CV, ten images/clips of artwork, and statement of how the artist might engage with MLAC audiences over the course of one year.
The 2016 Digital Artist in Residence was Leo Hylan (Baltimore, MD).
2017 Digital Artist In Residence awards: $1000, public presentation of artwork, and one year virtual residency at Main Line Art Center (Sept. 2017 – Aug. 2018)
