Program Description:

About MadArt
Located in Seattle, MadArt Studio is a contemporary art space with a mission to support artists, bring art into people's lives in unexpected ways, and create community involvement in the arts. Before securing a physical exhibition space, MadArt’s programming was nomadic and took place in a variety of non-traditional spaces, including houses slated for demolition, business storefronts, and public parks. In 2014, MadArt moved into an architecturally distinct building in the South Lake Union neighborhood and began commissioning large-scale, site-specific artworks that require extended periods of installation. This fostered a project-based, artist-in-residence program that culminates with an exhibition at MadArt Studio.

About the Residency
MadArt Studio invites artists whose focus is on large-scale, site-specific installation to apply for a flexible 3-month project-based residency to take place between May and August 2018. The intention of MadArt’s artist-in-residence program is to create a platform for artists to investigate and develop their contemporary artistic practice by providing the necessary workspace, resources, support staff, and tools to create an exhibition. Unique to MadArt’s residency program, participating artists are asked to hold regular studio hours during project installation. This provides public audiences with an opportunity to engage with resident artists to learn more about the process, practice, and concepts behind the work. The residency will culminate with an opening reception and exhibition at MadArt Studio.

MadArt offers a 3,500-square-foot studio space with access to a genie lift, basic tools, loading dock, internet, and parking for one vehicle. Please click on the link below for detailed floor plans and information on significant architectural features, including large floor-to-ceiling street-facing windows, varying ceiling heights, and dome skylights. The Studio Manager and Director provide ongoing assistance in various areas throughout the residency.

Funding
This is a project-based residency and funding will be determined based on each proposal. Please include a budget, factoring in material costs and labor. In addition to project costs, an honorarium of $5,000 will be provided to the selected artist.

If the selected artist is not local to Seattle, on-site housing will be provided during the residency.

Program Expectations
Resident artists are expected to hold regular studio hours, Monday through Friday from 10am - 5pm. During this time, artists must be available and open to engage with MadArt Studio visitors and larger touring groups. As part of their residency, artists are required to provide a one-time supplementary program. This can take any form the artist chooses, such as an artist talk or a performance, but rough details should be provided in the submitted proposal. Artists are also asked to leave behind an agreed-upon piece of work that relates to their residency.
