3 Artist Residency Programs and Deadlines
1. Anderson Ranch Artist in Residence
Anderson Ranch’s Artists-in-Residence Program fosters creative, intellectual, and professional growth for emerging and established visual artists. Residents have access to world-class facilities and studio time, free from everyday pressures. Residents can pursue interdisciplinary projects among a community of working artists, and gain feedback from prominent Visiting Artists and Critics. The Ranch setting is specifically crafted to aid artists in the production of their work. The residency is designed to allow artists to take risks and pursue new projects and ideas. Residents will be provided housing, studio space, and meals. Residencies are offered in ceramics, new media, photography, furniture design, woodworking, painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture. Fall residents pay a fee of $1,500 for the 10 weeks at the Ranch. Spring residents pay a fee of $750 for the five weeks at the Ranch. A select group of the 32 residencies is fully funded fellowships awarded by the jury panel. Residencies are offered during Spring and Fall terms each year.

2. LUMINOUS BODIES: The Human Body in Artistic Practice
Luminous Bodies is a two-week residency to create artworks that shed new light on the human body. Its objective is to challenge “normativity” and Otherness. Its goal is to reinvent and re-present the body in most inclusive and diverse ways.
Resident artist talks, gallery tours, visual and textual references, guest artist talks, and regular critiques (individual with Facilitator and group critiques) help uncover how our bodies are culturally and aesthetically constructed, displayed and controlled.
Residents work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that reinvent the body through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance, installation, sound art, movement art, media art, etc. There will be a closing exhibition of artworks created during the residency (if preferred, artists may show in open studio fashion).
The essence of Luminous Bodies is about bringing to light heterogeneous bodies. It welcomes people in all walks of life into a creative journey of critical innovation and self-discovery. People with disabilities, BIPOC, and people of diverse genders and ages are encouraged to apply.
DEADLINE: February 24, 2022
DATES: July 18 – August 2, 2022

FEE: Free to apply
WHO: International; photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance, installation, sound art, movement art, media art, etc.
