Fermilab launches a call for visual artists and composers for the 2023 cycle

To stimulate communication and interaction between scientists, artists and the public, Fermilab at Batavia has created an Artists in Residence Program and a Guest Composers Program.

They are currently seeking applications for the 2023 cycle. Fermilab is the US national laboratory dedicated to particle physics research.

This call is open to visual artists, composers and other creators. The artists will interact with the scientists of the laboratory and will discover their research and their links with society.

This information will then be used to create a body of work, leading to presentations in the community and possibly an exhibition/concert of the work created during the Fermilab residency.

A small stipend will be provided by Fermi Research Alliance.

Currently, we are planning virtual introductions and inspiration.

The application period for the Artists in Residence and Guest Composers programs opened on June 1 and closes at midnight on August 31.

Candidates may be contacted for an interview and presentation of examples of their portfolio.

Creators must be motivated and autonomous. Applicants will be notified by October 28, 2022 or earlier.


Questions for these programs should be submitted to art@fnal.gov.

The application will require: a curriculum vitae/CV; artist/composer statement; letter of intent describing what you hope to accomplish through this residency and how you will contribute to the program as well as the community; a letter of recommendation; images of work in progress or recent saves that represent your work; and links to web pages and other social media are encouraged.
