Guest artists and curators attend the summer academy to get a creative surge, revitalize their practice, gain fresh perspectives on their work, experiment in a protected, supportive environment and/or to strike out in new directions. They are typically mid-career artists and curators who wish to join graduate and doctoral students in workshops, lectures, critiques, exhibitions, and events. Post-residency, Transart can help you design a self-study program, support your praxis during the following year and advise you on an MFA or PhD proposal. Transartists continue to exhibit, publish, perform and discuss with their international community. 


3 weeks: July 24 – August 11
Deadline to apply: June 1

Join a vital, active community of artists, theorists, writers and curators who continue to exhibit and perform together internationally.
