WT1A5977Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Artist in Residence. Information on how to apply is below.

Deadline: June 30, 2016.

Click here for information about the current Artist in Residence.

The Marfa Contemporary Artist in Residence program was instituted in 2012 with the aim of supporting the development of artists of diverse ages, backgrounds and disciplines. Artists involved in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, performance-related media and other fine art media are eligible to apply for a residency. The competition is open to U.S. residents currently residing in the United States. Non-U.S. residents residing in the United States may be eligible to apply if they are currently in receipt of the necessary visas and documentation to continue residence. The residency is for a two-month period.

The Artist in Residence program provides an opportunity for artists from the USA to work in a unique natural environment. Marfa is a small town in a sparsely populated area of far West Texas, and artists should be prepared to spend a great portion of their time alone. A residency at Marfa Contemporary is perfect for those artists who seek a quiet environment that remains largely unfettered by industrialism. Due to the isolation of Marfa, it is a condition of acceptance that the artist have a valid driver’s license that permits him or her to drive in the United States.

Marfa Contemporary provides a furnished apartment and artist studio. A stipend of $1,100 per month is provided to assist with living expenses and art materials, subject to a 30 percent federal withholding for nonresidents, during the term of the residency. Flights and travel costs to and from Marfa will be borne by Marfa Contemporary within the USA ONLY. Any car hire/rental cost or travel costs the artist incurs during the residency will be self-funded. It is expected that the artist, during his/her residency, will participate in school workshops, actively engage with the local community and present an open house of his or her work at the close of the residency period, which runs Oct. 15 to Dec. 15.

Artists: Become a member of Marfa Collective, an artists’ association, for the opportunity to apply for inclusion in a group exhibition.
