The ArtCenter/South Florida has announced a new program at their new downtown campus. MFU: Miami is the pilot program of ArtCenter/South Florida’s Fellowship Program, which will bring 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. The pilot semester runs from 26 February- 31 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. Residents will engage regularly with each other, and biweekly with BHQFU faculty and visiting artists through the MFU: Miami 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 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 are due by 11:59pm EST, 15 December, 2016. Applications will be reviewed by ArtCenter and BHQFU. Up to five practitioners will be selected for this 12-week program. The MFU Miami is proudly unaccredited and offers no degree.
