Artist-in-Residency Program

Artist-in-Residency Program

Open Call for Artists – Microsoft Research, Redmond, WA

Microsoft Research seeks artists for its Artist-in-Residence program. The program offers an opportunity to work in a thrilling environment with cutting edge technology and world-class technologists to explore the connection between art, science, and engineering. A typical residency will last between three and six months. The artist will have an office and studio space in Microsoft Research’s building in Redmond, WA. Studio 99 (Microsoft Research’s art committee) will help connect the artist to collaborative partners across Microsoft’s research and product groups.

We encourage applications across a wide range of areas and interests, with no media restrictions --installation-based, sculptural, multimedia, or performative works are all welcome.

Pay for the Artist-in-Residence program is competitive and project-specific budgets will be provided to assist with exhibit design, construction, and installation.
