California Institute of Technology-Huntington Art + Research Residency

Dec. 20, 2019

The Division of the Humanities and Social Sciences (“HSS”) at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens (“The Huntington”) are seeking applications for an artist residency, which is part of the Caltech-Huntington Program in Visual Culture. The Art + Research Residency provides the opportunity to develop a project in conversation with the Caltech and Huntington research communities and to teach and work with Caltech students. It supports artists and other creative practitioners whose work involves research and experimentation and engages art, humanities, science and technology in society.

Funding for this residency is provided by and subject to the terms of an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant. The maximum support available for the 10-week residency is an all-inclusive stipend of 35,000 USD. The selected applicant may request a lower stipend in exchange for housing support and/or reimbursement for expenses. Housing is not provided, though the artist-in-residence will have access to Caltech rental properties (availability varies).

The artist-in-residence will have access to an office on Caltech’s campus. No other work space is guaranteed, but applicants should include a description of any work space request beyond an office, which Caltech or The Huntington may be able to accommodate.

The residency entails: public presentation(s) of your work in a range of possible formats including a lecture, site-specific installation, event or something else you propose; that you must teach an undergraduate course you propose and design to engage students in research, writing and/or hands-on practice and participation in the life of the Caltech and Huntington communities including attending lectures, social gatherings and/or developing collaborations. There is a 5000 USD budget available for public programming and student engagement activities or teaching equipment.
