manifest artist residency

Mar. 9, 2024
2727 Woodburn Avenue, Cincinnati, United States

Artists are invited to submit complete applications to the Manifest Artist Residency (MAR) program located in the vibrant historic urban neighborhood of East Walnut Hills in Cincinnati, Ohio near the Ohio River, Eden Park, the Cincinnati Art Museum, numerous Universities, and within three miles of downtown Cincinnati and 'Over the Rhine'. (Manifest Gallery and the Residency Studios are currently headquartered here.)

Applications will be reviewed on a competitive basis. At the discretion of the review committee and Manifest staff, up to two artists may be selected as the recipient(s) of the MAR award.

The ideal candidates for the award may be working in any media or genre suitable for the space provided, but would also make reasonable use of the available Drawing Center life-drawing sessions and/or darkroom facility even if this is ancillary activity to their primary work. Suitability for teaching will be considered, but will not be a primary factor in the selection process, and a teaching appointment is not guaranteed.

Artist Residency commences: by July 1, 2024

Selection Criteria:

The Resident Artist(s) will be selected by a committee comprised of internal staff, board members, and external academic/professional advisors. Primary criteria for selection will include:

  • Quality, nature, and consistency of sample work.
  • Motivation and potential for the creation of excellent new work during residency.
  • The degree to which the individual will further develop and benefit from the program and reciprocate with involvement and new positive energy for the culture around Manifest and our communities.
  • The ability of the artist to take full advantage of the opportunity and utilize the program resources to maximize its benefits.

Goals for the Manifest Residency Program include:

  • Provide an ideal space for the creation of new work. Above all else productivity and time spent working in the provided studio are critical.
  • Greatly increase the likelihood of future success for the resident artist or scholar.
  • Offer the opportunity to develop drawing or other art-making skills relative to the consistent availability of life drawing models and a darkroom facility, or to explore how life-drawing can relate to other art-making activities. (Applicants are NOT required to be figurative artists nor photographers.)
  • Create a supportive environment for development as a teaching artist.
  • Place the artist in a vital and growing arts community in Cincinnati, with locations ideal for meeting with and learning from other artists and arts organizations in the city.
  • Expand how Manifest's programming impacts individual artists, our community, and artmaking in society.
  • Establish a broad view into contemporary art by providing the public with insights into both art production (exhibits) and processes (studio) under one organizational umbrella, as well as supporting Manifest's own exhibition processes.
