For over 40 years, artist residencies at Bullseye afforded the opportunity to collaborate, experiment, ask questions, and push the boundaries of the material.
Established artists in the glass community such as Narcissus Quagliata, Richard Whiteley, Dante Marioni, and the late Klaus Moje have come to Bullseye to develop new formal, color, or conceptual languages for their work. Meanwhile, artists known for their work in other media—including Rafael Cauduro, Jun Kaneko, Camille Utterback, Munson Hunt, and Judy Tuwaletstiwa—have worked with Bullseye to translate their ideas into kilnformed glass. These collaborations, formerly called exchanges, emerged from invitations, referrals, and the occasional uninvited guest with a question too intriguing to ignore. Bullseye residencies often result in the development of materials and techniques that are widely used throughout the kiln-glass community.
Looking for a residency opportunity? Bullseye supports Yucca Valley Material Lab, offering residencies to designers, artists and craftspeople to explore a wide range of material with a focus on kilnformed glass. Residencies last up to three weeks and include lodging, full access to the lab, technical assistance and opportunities for intellectual exchange through panel discussions, lectures, studio visits and workshops. Applications are reviewed once year by a revolving panel of peers. For more information, visit: https://www.yuccavalleymaterial.org/residencies.
