School of Visual Arts Summer Residency Program

Priority deadline 1 April, 2018.

Applications are now available for SVA's Summer Residencies in New York City, offering artists, designers and creative thinkers time, space and a supportive community in which to develop ideas and focus on their artistic direction.

Participants in the Summer Residency Program have the benefit of working within SVA’s dynamic, culturally rich campus. Each program offers access to its own unique set of resources and spaces, which have been designed with artists and creative thinkers in mind. Spacious studios, smart classrooms, installation and performance spaces, exhibition spaces for open studios as well as workshops and labs are among the vibrant hubs of artistic activity at SVA.

With an emphasis on shared experience and community building, The Summer Residency Program provides a platform where participants can build and expand their networks and create lifelong connections with artists, critics, curators and other arts professionals. A robust schedule of group and one-on-one critiques helps to establish critical as well as social engagement within the Summer Residency Program community and beyond.
Current and recent faculty and guest lecturers include: Suzanne Anker, Heather Darcy-Bhandari, Elinor Carucci, Ofri Cnaani, Media Farzin, Mark Thomas Gibson, Steve Heller, Tobias Frere-Jones, Viktor Koen, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Jerry Saltz, Jason Stopa, Mark Tribe, Andrea Tsurumi, Caroline Woolard and Ed Woodham,
