Fine Arts Department presents PROJECT THIRD & Studio Residency Program

Pratt Institute’s Fine Arts Department is delighted to announce two new summer residency initiatives.

PROJECT THIRD: Residency for Research & Community Engagement
June 25 to September 18, 2018
This new ten week summer residency program is geared towards artists/collaborative groups whose community work is research oriented and/or motivated by the desire to instigate social change.

PROJECT THIRD consists of 3 linked components:
(1) Invited Artists in Residence
(2) Six week Fine Arts MFA summer session led by visiting faculty
(3) Collaboration w/Internal and External Partners

Invited artists inhabit and transform the gallery into a visible location for research, engagement and experimentation. July is a focused research month that aligns with a specially designed Fine Arts Integrated Practices MFA summer session taught by a visiting faculty member. August is public-facing with programming that opens up the work of the artists in residence to the community. Additional programming in early September responds to the return of faculty and students for the fall semester.

Inaugural Artists in Residence: BFAMFAPhD
(Susan Jahoda, Emilio Martinez Poppe, and Caroline Woolard)

Pratt Institute Partners: The Writing Program; Humanities & Media Studies; Art and Design Education, the Center for Career and Professional Development.

Studio Residency Program
Pratt Institute’s Fine Arts Department offer summer studio residencies that award accomplished professional artists private studio space on our Brooklyn campus. Visual artists with a demonstrated commitment to their artistic practice who will benefit from a month-long studio residency are encouraged to apply. This Studio Residency Program is intended to support artists by providing the time and space necessary to make new work. There are two residencies available. One is for a New York area artist (studio provided) and one for an artist living and working in the U.S.A. (studio and apartment provided). Residencies are for the month of July. The two selected artists are in residence alongside a Pratt Fine Art faculty member and have shared use of Fine Arts’ East Hall Gallery to exhibit their work.

2018 Studio Residency Program artists: Laurel Farrin, Gyun Hur & Fine Arts faculty member Greg Drasler ​
