An Exchange Between Artists and Designers
June 17th to July 26th
Intended for rising seniors in BFA programs or recent BFA graduates (within the past 2 years)
Emerging artists are invited to consider how their practice could be developed within the structure of a 6-week residency in Paris. The residency’s aim is to enhance the individual’s independent practice by providing them with the space, guidance, and resources necessary to fully investigate a defined project. Residents will work from a large communal studio; in addition they have access to the ceramics, welding, woodworking and mold-making workshops, photography studio and darkroom, printmaking facility, fashion atelier and computer lab. Visiting professional artists, designers, curators, and writers will engage with residents via lectures, critiques, and workshops. Visits to museum and contemporary exhibition and cultural spaces in and around Paris will be organized to complement and enrich residents’ creative development.
The Residency program is open to rising seniors in BFA programs and students who have graduated from a BFA program in the last 2 years. Unlike the other Summer Programs at Paris College of Art, the Creative Residency is by application and candidates must submit a statement of intent as well as examples of their work to be reviewed by PCA Admissions.
Creative Residency applicants are also asked to submit a short biography of themselves (up to 5 sentences on your background, and studies, and artistic practice) that will be published for other accepted Creative Residency students on a password protected site. Creative Residency applicants must complete the application procedure online. Applicants should be accepted for the program before making payment.
The priority deadline for applications is the 1st of March 2013, and the final deadline is the 15th of April 2013. A small number of merit-based partial tuition scholarships will be awarded to select students who apply by the
March 1st deadline. Applicants who miss the priority deadline are not eligible for scholarships. Scholarship students are chosen by the Creative Residency admissions committee and will be announced via email in April 2013.
