New Media Program Residency

The Mana New Media Program is dedicated to supporting the production and presentation of work focused on the intersection of art and technology. Through specialized residencies, exhibitions, programming, and online content across Mana’s locations, the program aims to foster new creative voices and involve the public in experiment and innovation in the field.  

The program is further enhanced through creative collaborations and partnerships with leading-edge thinkers, institutions, and organizations, including past and current collaborations with New Museum’s NEW INC; Nokia Bell Labs; Giphy; the School of the Art Institute of Chicago; NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program; and Rutgers University.

New Media Residency
in partnership with NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP)

This yearlong residency is designed to support the next generation of new media artists. Participating artists are chosen by the Mana curatorial team, with select nominees drawn from a pool of recent graduates and alumni of NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). The residency supports interdisciplinary artists and aims to foster innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurship in the field of new media. As part of the community-based residency, the artists will work together in a collective studio and engage with the public through self-generated programming, workshops, and exhibitions.
