OPEN CALL: New Media Residency

Applications are now closed.

Museum of the Moving Image invites proposals for a site-specific commission of a new media artwork to be completed during a three week residency at the Museum, from emerging artists who are first or second generation immigrants, currently residing in the United States. In Spring 2020, the Museum will choose one proposal to be completed during the residency, with help from a panel of experts. The Museum will hold a public information session about this open call on January 31, 2020 at 7:00 p.m., in the Digital Learning Suite (RSVP required as space is limited). The deadline to submit an application has been extended to February 17, at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, and the winning proposal will be announced on March 15. For more information, please view the application. Free to apply.
