MFU: Miami

26 February - 31 May, 2017

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR MFU: MIAMI SPRING 2017

The MFU: MIAMI is the pilot semester of ArtCenter/South Florida’s Fellowship Program, which brings distinguished faculty, alternative education initiatives, and cultural practitioners together in Miami to foster the exchange of knowledge. The program provides residents interested in working outside traditional disciplinary boundaries with the resources, time, and feedback to develop programs and courses that will be taught in future iterations of ArtCenter’s Program for Applied Artistic Research. For this pilot semester, which runs from February-May 2017, selected fellows will take part in BHQFU's MFU: Miami Seminar. Led by BHQFU faculty and visiting guests, this seminar will examine contemporary art and art education.

The 12-week residency offers a stipend of $3750, travel expenses, and live/work housing at ArtCenter/Downtown Miami. This program welcomes applications from visual artists, curators, researchers, writers, performers, and musicians at any stage in their career.

There is no fee to apply. Applications were due by 11:59pm EST, 15 December, 2016. Applications were reviewed by ArtCenter and BHQFU. Up to five practitioners will be selected for this 12-week program. Applicants will be notified no later than 2 January, 2017.

Residents will engage regularly with each other and BHQFU faculty and visiting artists biweekly through the MFU Seminar. This course includes group critiques, local visits, discussions, and guest artist lectures. Recent BHQFU guest artists have included Rashid Johnson, Lisa Yuskavage, Lorraine O'Grady, Huma Bhaba, Christine Sun Kim, David Salle, Lynne Tillman, Jayson Musson, Eileen Myles, Juliana Huxtable, Dana Schutz, Eva and Franco Mattes, Dawn Lundy Martin, Wayne Koestenbaum, and many more.

The MFU: Miami is proudly unaccredited and offers no degree.

We welcome international applicants, but are unable to assist in visa, sponsorship, or immigration requirements.
