UCD Art in Science invite applications to the one year residency at Parity Studios, UCD College of Science, commencing February 2015. This year the residency will be awarded to three artists and the call is open to visual, sound and dance/performance artists. We are particularly interested in applications from artists whose work is science related and who are keen to engage with scientists in the process of developing their work. One of the residencies will be awarded to a recent graduate of Fine Art who has completed their studies within the past two years, either at BA or MA level. This residency will be awarded under The Nevill Johnson Scholarship Award. Closing date for applications is Sunday 9 November 2014.
What is offered:
• Studio space
• Artist’s fee of €5,000.
• Access to lectures and courses in the College of Science.
• Access to UCD library and other campus facilities
• An opportunity to develop your practice through engagement with scientists and researchers at UCD College of Science.
• Invitation to participate in the UCD Art In Science programme of talks, exhibitions and performances.
What’s expected of the artists?
Ideally artists would use the studio space provided and develop work on average two days a week, over the course of the year. While formal introductions to relevant researchers are made, many fruitful conversations have occurred between the artists and scientists through chance meetings on the corridor or during coffee breaks, so being on site is an important factor in the process. The artist will be asked to give a 20-30 min talk as an introduction to their work and proposal for the residency, to the community here at UCD. The artists in residence meet on a monthly basis to discuss their work in progress and to offer constructive critique. We hold an Open Studio Day, where the wider community will be invited to visit the studios and talk with the artist about their work. The artist will be asked to make 4 short blog entries related to their work/ideas/experience of the residency throughout the year. The artist may be asked to give a talk or tutorial during the Tunnelling Art and Science module, a collaborative module for UCD Science and NCAD students.
