Institute for Electronic Arts


The IEA offers time, space, facilities, and support for artists to engage with their research projects.

Residents will be expected to engage with the Alfred University campus and communities which extend to Allegany County and the Western New York, Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions of New York. This engagement is often in the form of a public lecture / artist talk, a demonstration, course-specific involvement, or another agreed-upon event.

We ask that all residents leave sample images and copies of work produced during their residency period for the IEA archive. The archive serves as an extensive educational resource for students and future residents.

All residencies are made possible by The National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Legislature, the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, and the Schein-Joseph Endowment.
