2016 Digital Artist in Residence – Main Line Art Center

Deadline May 10: Launched in 2015 in conjunction with Panorama: Image-Based Art in the 21st Century, the Digital Artist in Residence Program consists of a $1000 award, a public presentation of artwork, and a one year virtual residency with Main Line Art Center for artists utilizing digital technology as a primary medium. The program was established to create opportunities for digital media artists to create new work, present their work publicly at MLAC’s Panorama Festival and/or other public events, and to invite artists to engage with MLAC audiences for one year in order to foster a greater appreciation of artwork utilizing new technologies.
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. Examples of digital media could include, but are not limited to: video, animation, digital photography, interactive gaming platforms, virtual reality experiences, 360, motion capture applications, video-mapping and projections, apps, internet based works, etc.

The residency 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 2016 and is completed in August of 2017.
