Due to the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) this residency has been cancelled for the Summer of 2020. As an alternative, we encourage you to check out our fully online residency program, The Artist Residency Project. If you have any questions, please contact us at: residency@sva.edu

Now in its fourth decade, this internationally renowned program offers artists an opportunity to work intensively in a private studio and receive individual critiques from faculty selected for their diversity, professional achievement and critical engagement. Artists are supported in their painting, drawing, printmaking, installation and mixed-media work, and are encouraged to push their practice to the next level, aesthetically and conceptually. Attention is given to contextualizing resident artists' work within contemporary interdisciplinary discourse.

Each artist has exclusive use of a studio throughout the program. Located in Chelsea, the studios offer privacy, while supporting a community that encourages experimentation and the development of new ideas and directions. Faculty will conduct studio visits and discuss each participant's work on an individual basis. Exposure to the New York City art world complements the on-site residency program. Equally important to the faculty critiques are the special lectures, scheduled approximately once a week. Given by guest artists, critics and gallery directors, these dialogues are designed to offer further insight into the realities of the working artist. Gallery tours are also included.

Participants will have access to SVA's Visible Futures Lab and the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art tools for both digital and traditional fabrication. The printmaking lab is available for an additional fee, providing access to silkscreen, etching, lithography, letterpress and digital facilities. Artists have access to the studios daily from 8am–11pm. Overnight stays are allowed with entry to the building prior to 11pm. The program culminates in an open studio exhibition.

Faculty and guest lecturers have included Andrianna CampbellAndrea Champlin, Ofri Cnaani, Gregory CoatesSteve DeFrankPeter HristoffTobi KahnSharon LoudenAmy MyersDanica PhelpsDavid Ross. Jerry Saltz, Jason Stopa.
