SITUATE (previously RMIT iAIR, the international Artist in Residence program) is a residency program for artists, curators and researchers. SITUATE connects people through art by creating onsite real-time opportunities for creative experimentation, cross-cultural dialogue and global mobility. At its core, this project believes that one of the best ways to enable and generate a great discussion is to simply shorten the physical distance between two ideas.
SITUATE manages three kinds of residencies:
- a series of Reciprocal Residencies where we send RMIT-affiliated and Australian artists overseas and receive artists from the partner organisations;
- ad hoc Melbourne-based Research Residencies that connect other institutions to our School; and
- the Print Imaging Practice Residency that invites artists to engage with our students and use our facilities to develop an edition of prints for exhibition or publication
SITUATE is one of six creative projects that together form INTERSECT — a dynamic program of exhibitions, residencies, creative laboratories, talks and events. These projects consider and use contemporary art as a means of intersecting with and enriching our University community, as well as our broader local and global ones.
