Visiting Artists & Designers Program
Nominations are sought for the 2013 residency program.
Monash University’s Faculty of Art Design & Architecture (ADA) is an integrative centre for socially engaged research and teaching that contributes to the creative enrichment and physical and cultural sustainability of our communities. ADA advocates the essential place of visual practice in a meaningful and fulfilling life, and nurtures the creative outcomes of its students and staff. ADA is located on Monash’s Caulfield campus, integrated with the Monash University Museum of Art (MUMA). MUMA offers a critical perspective on the recent history of contemporary art and culture, dedicated equally to Australian and international art.
The residency is an opportunity for artists, designers, architects, theorists and curators to undertake a period of focused work within a university art and design school. Residencies are available all year round, for periods ranging from two weeks to three months. Each residency includes accommodation, studio and access to all resources including, workshops, library, etc. In selected instances, the residency may also include a return economy airfare and materials stipend.
Previous residences have involved artists Calin Dan, Midori Mitamura, John Aiken, Stephen Farthing and Petra Ellert; designers Heiko Bartels and Karel Martens; and architects Stephen Kieran, Nader Tehrani, Silvia Acosta, Sami Rintala and Dagur Eggertsson.
