The RisoLAB Artist in Residence Program is an eight week print residency that provides visual storytellers with full access to the RisoLAB. During the summer semester, artists-in-residence are provided with a studio space alongside students enrolled in SVA’s MFA Visual Narrative Program. Multimedia artists working in applied and fine arts such as graphic novels, zines, picture books. graphic design and photography are welcome. We also encourage practicing artists outside of print media to apply.
During the residency, artists will research and develop, then learn to print and self-publish projects that utilize the full potential of the Lab and facilities. Risograph training and support will be provided. The RisoLAB is sponsored by the MFA Visual Narrative program at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and encourages exploration and experimentation with two two-color Risograph ME 950U duplicator, one two color Risograph MZ 1090 duplicator, and 11 unique spot colors. No prior Risograph or print experience is necessary.
We are now accepting applications for two residencies for Summer and Fall 2019 and Spring 2020.
