As part of the University of Colorado Art Museum biennial Artist-In-Residence Program, artists are invited to CU Boulder to create new work or curate an exhibition. The primary component will be a four to six-week on-site residency in the 2021/2022 academic year. Artists will interact with faculty and students both in-person and remotely to produce an installation for a 4,000 square foot gallery.

The onsite component of the residency can occur in either the fall semester 2021 or spring semester 2022, depending on the project proposal.

Artists are either:

•In residence in the fall semester 2021 to work toward a finished exhibition or installation in the galleries for the spring 2022,

•In residence in the spring semester 2022 and use the gallery as an experimental laboratory and ever-evolving production space to create an installation. The museum will will be open to the public during gallery hours during this time.

The on-site component will take place if the COVID-19 pandemic has been successfully managed by 2021/2022; if the pandemic continues, the Museum will work with artist/s to develop a remote alternative.

The CU Art Museum is committed to the arts in all their forms. The Museum encourages interdisciplinary projects and values how the methodologies of two or more different disciplines can contribute to new knowledge and creative works. The Museum welcomes applications from individual and collaborative teams of choreographers, dancers, designers, filmmakers, media artists, musicians, visual artists and writers, as well as collaborative teams from the arts paired with scholars in other disciplines such as engineering, humanities, law, or the natural or social sciences. Past resident artists have worked with the Department of Theater and Dance, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Greenhouse, Library Special Collections, Museum of Natural History and Program in Environmental Design, as well as many other artists, scholars and collections on campus.

Based on our departmental and university goals, and commitment to inclusive excellence and diversity, we particularly welcome applications from candidates whose background/expertise and commitment reflect this work within and among historically underrepresented communities. This includes artist background (lived and/or work experience) within communities of color, communities with disabilities and within LGBTQ communities.

Applicants should be engaged in contemporary artistic practice and demonstrate a continuing national or international exhibition record. Applicants must by external to the University of Colorado system.
