Visualist-in-Residence Opportunities

Froebel Star Folding

The ICI offers “Visualist-in-Residence” (VIR) opportunities at the Institute’s Los Angeles site. The residency provides artists, art theorists, writers, and other visual researchers and cultural producers with an environment oriented towards the production of knowledge inside a well-equipped study and production facility.

Residencies for the 2017-2019 season will be by invitation only, while we critically evaluate the past 5 years of the project through a series of discussions, displays, and public forums. 

Please check back in 2020 for future VIR opportunities.
