Call for Artist Residency at the Institute for Electronic Arts
This residency program provides opportunities for a diverse group of artists that advances careers and knowledge of developing media studio technologies and practices. We support experimentation that can be instrumental in the production of an expanding and culturally significant catalog of time-based and new media artworks.
Artists have access to a combination of emerging, contemporary, and historical media arts tools and materials, many are unique and not ordinarily available in a studio setting. The resident artists have 24-hour dedicated access to the IEA studio and equipment. The IEA research specialists will be available to work with the resident artist during their 9-5 workday. Additional technical staff and faculty are also available for consultation. The IEA video and sound studio offers artists an integrated system with real-time video image-processing software, hardware, and video capture. The print media studios have an extensive range of technologies that span across digital and tradition that explore many hybrid possibilities.
The two-week residency supports artist with a stipend, travel-support, lodging, technology access, materials, and technical assistance. Each resident will be expected to give a public presentation that will target communities of Allegany County, the Greater Western New York area, selected activities will be streamed online to a national audience.
