Arthouse Visiting Lecturer Series and Studio Visit Program
Deadline: December 15, 2009
The Arthouse Visiting Lecturer Series has been conceived as an annual program that brings internationally-renowned contemporary art curators, directors, and arts professionals from around the country to Austin to conduct studio visits with selected area-based artists and present a free public lecture. This series provides an important opportunity for Austin artists to have their work reviewed by a variety of distinguished arts professionals. It also helps raise the visibility of our thriving cultural scene.
Arthouse has selected five outstanding speakers to participate in the inaugural series and is soliciting applications from artists in the area to participate. These submissions are forwarded to the Visiting Lecturer, who then selects the artists with whom studio visits are conducted over a two-day period. This is a competitive process, and only a handful of artists will be selected by each lecturer.
