The Deering Estate is expanding our collaborations to include international universities and institutions, as a natural next step in our residency programs and initiatives.
Deering Estate and Museus De Sitges, a consortium of five sites that include Maricel, the historic winter home of Charles Deering, now celebrate their common history and recognize each other as Sister Sites. John William Bailly, Deering Estate Artist–in-Residence and Fellow at the FIU Honors College, has initiated the Study Abroad Spain program in Sitges and will be the first exchange Artist-in-Residence, exhibiting in Maricel in 2018.
With Miami Dade College, the Deering Estate will welcome international artists from Institut Seni Indonesia, the leading arts college in Jakarta, Indonesia this fall. For ‘Mythology and Site,’ participants will collectively imagine a lost lore that connects us to other global sea-side communities. The residency is an extension of an existing US-Indonesia Partnership Program that is the outcome of a federal grant. The U.S. Indonesia Partnership Program (USIPP) aims to build a foundation for expanding academic partnerships.
