  • Applications due June 10, 2023

The Department of Art and Art History invites applicants for Visiting Artist-in-Residence to begin August 15, 2023. This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of one additional year. An artist or art collective selected by the faculty and staff of the Art and Art History Department would be in residence at UR to conduct research, produce a body of work and teach studio art courses. Students would be directly involved with the artist(s) through a flexible course program designed to complement the artist(s)’ area of competency and research. Applicants teach one introductory course and one advanced annually. Teaching expectations outside of these classes include regular workshops, class visit/critiques and mentorship for Studio majors in the Senior Studio and Seminar class.

During the residency, the artist(s) creates a project that engages campus and the greater Rochester community. The residency culminates with one public presentation and a cumulative exhibition, performance, screening or public installation. The resident artist(s) pursues research by accessing the University of Rochester's resources including: labs and facilities; practice, performance and exhibition spaces; archives, libraries, research centers, and special collections.

Candidates for the program could include recently graduated MFA, PhD, or established artists who demonstrate an ability to collaborate across disciplinary fields . The resident artist would be paid a salary (+ health benefits) as well as a studio space and some support (material and/or financial) for their research and production.

The University of Rochester, an Equal Opportunity Employer, has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education.
