Eligibility:

The Currier Museum of Art invites applications for its Artist-in-Residence Program. Now in its third year, the program will award up to two residencies between fall 2023 and spring 2024. The awards will provide support for self-identified emerging artists (or groups of up to three artists) focused on social practice. Residencies may be for a period of 6 to 12 weeks between mid-October 2023 and mid-March 2024. The residency program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting audiences with art and creative thinking. This open call privileges social practice artists who share the goal of impacting people through the transformative power of art. It is free to apply and applications close on December 1, 2022.

Applicants must demonstrate a history of social engagement in their artmaking practice and production. Successful applicants will develop an innovative project with tangible outcomes that align with the tenets of their own practice, the mission of the museum, and the needs of the community with whom they will collaborate. Artists and small collectives (up to 3 people) working in any media are eligible to apply.

The Currier Museum encourages proposals from all communities. The museum does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.

Understanding that partnerships evolve throughout the relationship between artist and organization, we recognize the need for flexibility. Proposals do not need to include fully formed projects; rather, we invite artists to describe the type of issues they plan to address, the impact their previous projects have had, and their working styles. Examples of potential projects should be included, as well as a consideration of how your project could be achieved under ongoing physical distancing guidelines. Applicants may identify specific organizations or communities with whom they are interested in working, or overall issues and themes they would like to address. Currier Museum staff will contact community partners to assess feasibility. We ask that applicants do not contact potential community partners before being selected.

Prize Summary: 
Support for housing, travel, materials, and $1,000 a week stipend.
Prizes Details: 

The Currier Museum supports resident artists with a stipend of $1,000 per week, travel allowance up to $500, materials support, and housing in a fully furnished home. In most cases, artists may be able to have spouses/children accompany them. Service animals are welcome.
