  • Being immersed and involved with the surrounding community for the duration of the residency.

  • Creating work and installations that can be viewed by the general public whether through open studio hours, public art installations, or periodic gallery installations.

Selected artists receive a furnished artist apartment with attached studio (shared with other artist in residence), and staff support from the NWSI. Applications are open to all artists working in a variety of medium with a particular focus and interest in community-based artwork.

The SALTQuarters Artist-in-Residence program will begin January 15th, 2017 and will be a yearlong residency for a local artist and a six month or yearlong residency for a national artist. Local will be defined as any artist living/working in the Central New York region. Both artists will be selected by the Near Westside Initiative.

The two artists will be asked to share an apartment and share an arts studio (free of charge). The furnished apartment, roughly 1000 sq ft, has two-bedrooms, a spacious kitchen/living room area, a washer and dryer, and other general amenities.

In that year, the building was been transformed into SALTQuarters, a 4,000 square foot building, with two apartments, three art studios, and a gallery space. The building is located at the corner of the Otisco and Wyoming streets, a critical intersection in the neighborhood where residential meets commercial. In addition to the building, SALTQuarters has a large area of green space to be used for events, exhibitions, and large fabrication.

Job- Cranbrook Academy of Art (MI), Open position: Artist-in-Residence/Department Head, Ceramics

unnamedJob- Cranbrook Academy of Art (MI), Open position: Artist-in-Residence/Department Head, Ceramics

Deadline: October 15th, 2016

Cranbrook Academy of Art, ranked nationally as one of the top ten programs in graduate art education, seeks a new leader for the Ceramics department. The successful Ceramics candidate should demonstrate a strong record as a professional artist at the highest level in the field, have teaching experience at the graduate level and strong interpersonal and communication skills to lead the department of 15 students.

Cranbrook Artists-in-Residence are the singular leaders of their departments. They are given the autonomy to determine the department’s pedagogy and the responsibility for its success. At Cranbrook, Artists-in-Residence are not typical faculty members. They are full-time artists and designers who live on campus, and whose personal studios are located within their departments. During the academic year, September-May, the Artist-in-Residence mentors 15 graduate students in a collegial environment including nine additional departments: 2D Design, Architecture, 3D Design, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Painting, Photography, Print Media and Sculpture. Within the Department, each Artist-in-Residence selects their students, guides the development of each individual and nurtures a productive and interactive environment. The degree program culminates in an exhibition and written masters-statement approved by the department head.

Candidates for this position must be unusually well qualified to provide open, independent learning, resulting in rigorous production, critique and discussion, and inspire research, innovation and experimental paradigms. It is anticipated that the Artist-in-Residence/Department Head will also advocate the program via the web, publication and national/international lectures as an active component of recruiting future students.

Cranbrook is not simply a graduate program; it is a community of artists and designers, living and working together on a campus that was designed specifically for that purpose. Cranbrook Artists-in-Residence are provided with a private studio, housing on campus and benefits in addition to salary.

The Ceramics Artist-in-Residence/Department Head should respect the history of ceramics while embracing the visual and conceptual elements of the field through a wide-range of formats and methods, including new technologies. Conceptual models for Ceramics should be characterized by an interdisciplinary, expansive approach that can be used as an open framework for building new visions that will evolve the future of the discipline.  The department boasts five large, energy efficient, state-of-the-art, Blaauw gas kilns- three fully computerized and two manual, and several medium and small electric kilns. The studio is equipped with all the essentials and more: blunger, hydraulic extruder, tile saws, spray booth, grinders, sandblaster etc. In this way we hope not only to cater to the already established ceramic tradition- we aim for the department to be at the frontline of contemporary ceramic art and design.

Candidates for this position must be working artists with a sustained record of peer recognition; a demonstrated commitment to college-level teaching; a Master’s Degree or higher; excellent communication skills and leadership skills; the ability to provide a productive and interactive learning environment; the capacity to make a significant contribution to their field and to the Academy.

Position commences September 2017.

The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts is now accepting applications for the 2017 Art, Empathy, and Ethos thematic residency. Through this call, the Bemis Center will construct a cohort of artists whose artistic practices take diverse approaches to negotiating, understanding, and communicating empathy. Applicants should have demonstrated experience in the research, development, or execution of work that explores empathy and its various manifestations, from social justice and human rights, to environmental conservation and protection.

Examples include ethnocultural differences; consideration of immigrant communities; authentic and inauthentic selves; psychic and new agist mediums and culture; neuroaesthetics; biohacks (including consumables, wearables, and smart clothing); understanding animals; natural resources, energy, and the environment; consideration of viewers and spectatorship; labor economies in service industries; white privilege; social practice; correlation between poverty and access to human rights; psychoanalytic and cognitive behavioral psychologies; love and loss; embodied and somatic performance; kinesthesia; gender identification; social practice working with underrepresented communities (elderly, persons with physical disabilities, or mental illness); cybernetics and social media; and medical and legal practice.

Contemporary artists from all backgrounds and areas of practice are encouraged to apply. Applicants should not be enrolled in an academic program during the residency period. This residency aims to assemble artists who work with like-minded subject matter and interests. As a process-based residency, there is no expectation or promise of an exhibition in our first floor galleries.

Stipend: Each artist will receive a $1,500 stipend for the eight-week session and a $500 travel stipend. Artists are responsible for arranging travel to and from Omaha to attend the residency.

Eligibility: Residency opportunities are open to national and international artists 21+ years of age, showing a strong professional working history. A variety of disciplines are accepted including, but not limited to, visual arts, media/new genre, performance, architecture, film/video, literature, interdisciplinary arts, music composition, and choreography.

Bemis Alumni are allowed to re-apply for residency after a three year hiatus from the program. Alumni seeking residency must submit a complete application including recent work samples and current resume. Preference may be given to applicants who have not previously attended. The Bemis Center expects selected artists to attend the residency in it’s entirety.  If an artist can not attend after they have been selected and scheduled, the artist may not defer and must decline the award.

Students enrolled in an academic program during the time of requested residency are not eligible to apply. Applications consisting of small collaboratives (2-3 total members) are eligible to apply. Each artist included in the collaborative must submit a resume. Bemis welcomes internationally based artists to apply.

Open Engagement 2017 (IL), International Call for Proposals: JUSTICE

openengagement-ilOpen Engagement 2017 (IL), International Call for Proposals: JUSTICE

Deadline: October 31st, 2016, midnight PST

From their call:  Open Engagement (OE) is the largest artist-led conference dedicated to expanding the dialogue around, and creating a site of care for, the field of socially engaged art. Founded in 2007, OE has evolved into an unparalleled hub for practitioners and audiences to assemble. OE employs an inclusive open call model that supports emerging and established artists and organizers, highlights the voices of students alongside professionals, and collaborates closely with national institutions to further the networks of support for socially engaged art. OE is committed to the power of art to enact radical social change.

We are currently accepting proposals for Open Engagement 2017 — JUSTICE. Local, national, and international artists, activists, academics, cultural producers, administrators, curators, educators, writers, thinkers, doers, and makers of all ages with a vested interest in art and social practice are encouraged to propose programming for OE 2017 through our free call.  

Open Engagement 2017 — JUSTICE will take place April 21st–23rd, 2017 at the Chicago Cultural Center and a constellation of sites across the city. This year’s conference, guided by the curatorial vision of Romi Crawford and Lisa Lee, will explore the centralized theme of Justice, and will feature presenters including Theaster Gates, Maria Gaspar, Maria Varela, and Laurie Jo Reynolds.

Too often, artists and activists working across a wide spectrum of issues ranging from immigration, food and environmental justice, urban planning, gentrification, police violence, and many other vital and timely reckonings are isolated from one another. How can artists contribute to the work for justice? How can these movements be more effective with the work of artists? This conference is intended to break down these silos, serve as an educational resource, facilitate crucial dialogue, and provide opportunities to highlight successful artistic and community engagements. OE is a site to learn from one another, to examine the state of our field, and to provide opportunities for attendees to access valuable skills and tools that push and support their work in embedded contexts.

OE works to honor multiple ways of engaging in dialogue and to build up the community surrounding socially engaged art. OE is a site that supports multiple forms of knowledge and encourages non-traditional conference forms. Open Engagement is ADA and family welcoming.

It is time for creative communities to collectively forge new pathways toward justice and equity. In close partnership with activists, artists, community members, organizers, and cultural workers in Chicago, we are working to cultivate OE 2017 into a site for practitioners of all perspectives. We are thrilled to welcome OE participants to the contested, resilient city of Chicago for an intimate convergence with the artistic practices and projects of those who are working to make the world less treacherous and more equitable.
