Artist in Residence Opportunity

The Monira Foundation is hosting 6 month Residencies for 2023-24. Our mission is to provide a stimulating, rigorous, and contemplative environment in which talented and committed artists benefit from a large studio workspace and the support of a vital creative surrounding

Program Overview and Facilities:

This is a Performance and Visual Arts collaborative residency that is project driven. We are looking to support artist collaborations or individual artists whose work exists in the performance and visual art cross section. This is a broadly defined area that can include any visual art practice and any movement practice. The Monira Foundation will support artists for 6 month periods beginning in July 2023 to create a new work that will be exhibited in a public presentation at the end of the residency (December 2023 or June 2024). Applications may be submitted by individual artists whose work operates in this intersection or from artist collaborations who are looking to create new works.

Selected Artists will have access to a private studio that is about 300 sq/ft for their 6 month residency. The space comes equipped with basic studio equipment like a work table and chairs and a small portable sprung wood dance floor. The spaces are adaptable to artists’ needs with multiple electrical outlets and internet access. The Foundation will also supply a $350 honorarium to the lead applicant to support the project and access to a dance space through High Concept Labs, our programming partners (also located in the same building). There is also selected equipment available for shared use during the time of the residency. This includes projectors and some audio equipment.

The Monira Foundation will support the final presentation for each project at the end of the residency by providing space and equipment needed. We will also document and record the project for presentation virtually through youtube to reach audiences far and wide.

In addition to providing physical space, residents will receive visits from artists, curators, critics, and collectors throughout their residency.

Application and Selection Process:

Applications are accepted from February 6- March 13, 2023 at midnight. In each application we ask you to provide bios for each applicant (if applying as a collaborative), a project proposal (250 words), a tentative plan for your time in the studio, and to submit 5 images of your work. Images should include samples of completed projects and a possible mock up of the proposed project (if possible). No composite images or files with multiple images will be accepted. Individual slide images only. Images and statements cannot have artist names or identification on them. Image Descriptions should include title, media, year, and description. Our aim is to keep this application equitable and heavily focused on the work submitted. Reviewers will not see applicant names during the process and only have access to the artist statement, the program statement and the portfolio.

Each application will also ask for general information and a recent resume for internal use only. Please make sure your Slideroom account is up to date when submitting as we rely on their system to communicate during this process.

Monira Foundation’s Artist in Residence Program, Chicago supports artists with established careers who work in any visual arts media and performance. All applicants must be at least 21, American citizens or residents of the United States during the residency period, not be enrolled in a degree-granting program or other residencies at the time of their residency, and be able to demonstrate an understanding of our program. We encourage artists working in all visual media to apply.
