Roman J. Witt Residency Program – Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, Michigan USA (Deadline: Jan 11th, 2013)

Witt Artist In Residence

The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new interdisciplinary work with assistance from the School of Art & Design community. The program awards up to two residencies per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to work at the school to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty. The intersection with the School may include workshops, critiques, and lectures. A centerpiece of the residency is the open studio, a centrally located studio space that is part of the school’s main gallery where the resident carries out work in a public domain. The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as a presentation that summarizes the process and work accomplished.


The Witt Residency is open to both established and emerging artists/designers. The Witt residency provides students an alternative learning opportunity to engage with practicing artists who make use of resources across campus, therefore the ideal candidate must value collaboration, have good social and communication skills and be interested in generating creative partnerships across disciplines. It is the goal of the Witt Residency to foster an atmosphere of inventive creative activity that extends throughout the University community.


Witt Residents receive an honorarium of $20,000 for up to twelve weeks in residence served over an academic year. There is flexibility in how the time in residence is apportioned. In addition to the honorarium, residents will be provided with housing, studio space, and up to $5,000 funding support for project materials.

A meme, beyond its association with cats and YOLO, is a self-replicating strand of culture. It is a term for the analogy between the spread and selection of genetic information and of cultural materials, opinions, or ideas.

(1) Art, like any action, is a meme. The habits of the contemporary artist have self-replicated into an international network of white walls and effete gestures; a torrent of similar images.

(2) To understand the construction and limitations of this meme, we must step outside it.

This residency period will be spent considering these two principles. To begin with, we will spend time looking at our own practices to identify what strains of the art meme have filtered into our work, perhaps without our intent. By doing this we can reflect on what it is we hope to say, and what we do not wish to repeat. We will then look outside of the art context to other parts of culture, to try to assess how different hierarchies and non-hierarchies function–alternative forms of attribution, authorship, and value. By looking to these, or inventing our own, we may find methods by which art’s ambitions can be inserted into other territories, or methods by which we can come to fundamentally reassess our aims as authors. As a group we will come together to arrive at daily practices, discussions, or other interactions that will serve to enhance what we do with our time in and out of the studio.
