Call for Entries: Kala Art Institute Artist in Residence Program — Due: October 15, 2014

by admin on August 10, 2014


Artists working in various printmaking techniques, photo-processes, book arts and digital media including video production can apply to become an Artist-in-Residence at Kala Art Institute. Residency applications are accepted online three times per year. Artists who apply for residency should be familiar with at least one of the media offered at Kala. Considerations for acceptance are conceptual creativity and technical knowledge. Kala encourages use of both traditional and new technologies, and their admixture.

Resident artists receive 24-hour access to the printmaking workshop and/or electronic media center, individual storage space, possible exposure on Kala’s website and in other exhibitions at Kala or outside exhibition spaces, and participation in a vital, international artistic community. Artists also receive a 20% discount on classes and private tutoring offered by Kala.

Please note that this is a studio residency only; housing is not included. Artists are responsible for finding their own housing.



The Kala AIR application is now online at Hardcopy and email submissions are no longer accepted. Applications are reviewed three times per year: March 15, July 15, and October 15. Artists may apply for 1-, 2-, or 3-month residencies, and must specify the desired residency length in the application. 6-month residencies also exist, but are only available to continuing and returning Artists-in-Residence who have completed a 3 month residency.
