The Artist Residency Project

October 13–November 13, 2020

Tuition: $1500

This residency program is designed for fine artists working across discipline, medium and platform. Through online platforms, it aims to deliver a robust, global residency experience. Working with SVA’s distinguished faculty, participants will develop their practice without the limitations of location or the necessity for travel. The goal of The Artist Residency Project is to create an inclusive online space where artists can thrive, nurture their practice and build an active, engaged community.


Faculty will conduct remote studio visits and discuss each participant's work on an individual basis, as well as facilitate group critiques and reading groups. Alongside these visits, daily activities and ways to connect will keep participants engaged with their community of artists, and a cohort of professional mentors spanning the fields of art, design and contemporary practice. Special lectures by guest artists, critics and gallery directors will provide further insight into the realities of the working artist in the present moment.


Faculty and lecturers have included Andrea Champlin, Gregory Coates, Tobi Kahn, Alois Kronschlaeger, Judy Mannarino, Amy Myers, Iviva Olenick, Danica Phelps, Accra Shepp and Allison Hewitt Ward. Note: A portfolio is required for review and acceptance to this program.


This residency is fully online and offered through a combination of synchronous as well as asynchronous studio visits, critiques, lectures, discussions and activities. Synchronous sessions will be announced and scheduled in consideration of different time zones.


Limited to 20 participants.


NOTE: A portfolio is required for review and acceptance to this program.
