Could You Be the 2022 Artist in Residence?

The UCSF Library Archives and Special Collections and Makers Lab are accepting proposals for the third annual UCSF Library Artist in Residence program. The UCSF Library Artist in Residence award, valued at $6,000, will be given annually to one candidate with a degree in Studio Arts or a related field and/or a history of exhibiting artistic work in professional venues.

For program background, artist responsibilities and provided support, see the Artist in Residence Program webpage.

Possible projects can include, but are not limited to: painting; photography; performance; sculpture; 3D scanning and 3D printing; programmable electronics; and digital, video or installation art. The 2022 residency will be in-person, however, the artist may need to pivot to a remote residency depending on the epidemiological situation. Applicants are advised to review the remote project of the UCSF 2020 Artist in Residence, Farah Hamade.

Deadline for proposals was March 25, 2022.
