Indianapolis Museum of Art (USA) - Island residency

The IMA is issuing a call for proposals for a summer 2013 six-week residency on Andrea Zittel’s Indy Island within the IMA’s 100 Acres: The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park. Graduate and undergraduate students and professionals in the fields of art, design, architecture and performing arts are encouraged to apply to customize and reside on Indianapolis Island.

The chosen applicant will be awarded a stipend to customize the interior of the island and implement their proposal during a residency. The Indy Island resident will have the opportunity to communicate their unique experience though the use of a blog provided by the IMA. Learn more about Indy Island, or visit the page for the 2010, 2011, and 2012 residents.

Residents will be responsible for the design, customization, and fabrication of the interior of the island and all other components of the selected project. Indy Island is currently supplied with objects created by or brought to the island by the previous residents. It will be the 2013 resident’s choice to incorporate these materials into new proposals or to disregard these objects.

Collaboratives and groups are encouraged to apply. Please fill out one application, regardless of the number of people in your group.

Island residents are provided with a budget of $3000, paid in two installments, to purchase materials for fabrication. All materials purchased with this budget are property of the IMA. A personal stipend of $1500 is also awarded.

The IMA will provide roundtrip travel to Indianapolis for one resident. If a group application is chosen, these stipends will be divided among members of the group, or the group can nominate an individual member to serve as a representative for the residency.

Deadline for applications: 11 January 2013.
