Textile Arts Center AIR Open Call

TAC AIR combines studio access with a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, regular critical dialogue, and mentorship, providing residents an opportunity to learn and explore the textile medium, and an alternative to traditional higher education programs. The residency culminates in a group exhibition produced and hosted by TAC. Since 2010, TAC AIR has graduated over 100 artists and designers whose work continues to further textile art within the fashion, fine arts, design, and art education fields. Over the course of 9 months, TAC AIR residents delve into a full curriculum of technical classes, textile history and conservation and professional development. Ongoing critical dialogue allows residents to gain a greater awareness of their practices and contextualize their work within contemporary and historical textile art.
We are looking for artists and designers at all career stages, working in textile/fiber media or looking to explore and develop a new body of work in this medium. Eligible applicants must be 21+ years old and should be proficient in English and have good communication skills. We encourage international artists to apply, but applicants are responsible for all necessary VISA arrangements and fees.
