The Novinski Artist/Scholar-in-Residence program facilitates the exchange of ideas between a visiting artist/scholar (or creative/research team) and the students and faculty at the university through research projects, lectures, exhibitions, critiques, courses, and other programming. The aim is to infuse the art program with new and innovative creative and intellectual perspectives that supplement current expertise and offerings. The residency program provides time, space, financial support, and exchange for the artist/scholar to develop substantive research and share it with the University and Dallas/Fort Worth community, enriching a culture of inquiry and benefiting the common good. Dallas and Fort Worth make up the nation’s largest contiguous arts district and are homes to multiple world-class museums, galleries, and performance spaces such as the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, the Crow Collection of Asian art, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and the Amon Carter.
Artist/Scholar projects that can engage both undergraduate and graduate students in studio and art history, or a combination of these research practices are encouraged. Full access to campus facilities is provided, including but not limited to office/studio, studio shops and equipment, library, databases, and galleries. Specific or special equipment or resource requirements should be outlined in a proposal.
The residency concludes with an exhibition and/or public lecture presenting the culmination of the research project conducted at the University of Dallas. Candidates can propose a project-based duration consisting of a number of weeks, a single semester, or the full academic year.
All applications must be submitted online through SlideRoom.
