Digital Artist Residencies
UMS is working with a group of artists who are creating projects specifically for the digital frame.
Digital Artist Residencies will connect artists to audiences in brand new ways, from rarely visible behind-the-scenes creative development, all the way to presentations of finished works, some of which will be experienced digitally and some, eventually, to in-person audiences. The projects will be presented in various stages of creative development over the course of the next year. Participating artists will also connect to audiences, including students, faculty, and the broader community, through informal conversations, participatory experiences, discussions about the creative process, and other activities.
Watch Parts 1 & 2 of our Digital Artist Residency Kickoff, originally aired 9/29-30.
“As we face unprecedented challenges in presenting live, in-person work by artists, I’m absolutely thrilled that we will be investing in and working with this select group of artists over the course of the next year, to develop new work and to invite audiences into the process.”
