Bard Graduate Center Library Artist in Residence Open Call

Library Artist in Residence
September 2021–June 2022

Total Artists Selected: Two

DEADLINE: July 15, 2021 | 11:59 pm EST

The Bard Graduate Center’s Library Artist in Residence (AIR) program invites artists whose practice is grounded in research to use our library collection as an incubator for new work that will interact with our collection in new and non-traditional ways. Artists are invited to conduct research in subject areas relating to their work or to address the library itself as an organized collection of print material, utilizing the library’s reference staff as thought partners in this process. Library AIRs will have the opportunity to present their work. This could take the form of a pop-up exhibition, a library intervention, a publishing project, a public workshop, or an artist talk. Bard Graduate Center will award selected artists a $1000 stipend and a $500 materials budget.
