Bard Graduate Center Digital Artist in Residence Open-Call

Bard Graduate Center is pleased to launch its first Digital Artist in Residence program offering funding, exhibition space, and support to digital artists. BGC will award selected artists a $2000 stipend and a $1000 materials budget to create an interactive project that exists at the intersection of architecture, design, technology, feminism, and materiality, themes inspired by BGC’s upcoming exhibition on modernist designer and architect Eileen Gray. Bard Graduate Center is also open to exhibiting relevant existing work.
