Production Still from 2019 Resident Irene de Boer

California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) relaunches its art residency for the fourth year, adding an official desert excursion to Joshua Tree along with workshops and lectures by visiting artists such as Dena Yago, Rachel Yezbick, and American Artist. In partnership with Hauser & Wirth and the School of Art, this five-week residency offers an opportunity for emerging and/or mid-career artists working in all disciplines to advance their work in an immersive, transdisciplinary studio environment.

“This year we are particularly interested in new media and emerging technologies, and artists who are thinking through critical aspects of the tech landscape,” says Emma Kemp, Program Coordinator.

New-media artists, designers, curators, photographers, filmmakers, writers, and inter/trans-disciplinary thinkers are invited to apply for the residency, which will include woodworking and welding workshops.

Previous visiting artists include: Joshua Citarella, Nikita Gale, Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, Ann Hirsch, Michael Ned Holte, Jillian Mayer, Nina Sarnelle and the Institute for New Feeling, Shirley Tse, Stephen Wright, and Raivo Puusemp.

CalArts (USA) is a renowned international, multidisciplinary institute offering a diversity of resources to artists including access to production studios, prestigious library of collections and rare artist books, a comprehensive film and video archive, and on-site pool and other campus facilities. The school’s proximity to Los Angeles provides easy access to world-class museums, a robust arts scene, and varied geological sites such as beaches, mountains and desert.

Residency Date: May 23–June 27, 2020

Application Deadline: March 31, 2020
