Once a year HMK sends out an open call for artists and curators to hand in a proposal for a residency period.

Who may apply? Artists and curators (individuals or groups).

About our residency: During a stay at our guesthouse the artist/group of artists is invited to develop, execute and present a new project. Residencies vary in length and depend on the nature of the work; usually between 4 and 8 weeks. The exhibition with the residents´ work is open to the public, and lasts around 4 weeks.

All residents are offered: Full and free use of all accommodation, living, and working facilities (wireless internet, washing machine, basic tools, audio & video equipment). Prior to the residency HMK assists with finding appropriate funds to cover a travel/living/production budget, and during the residency production and technical assistance is made available. Furthermore, HMK is responsible for all promotional activities in relation to the projects, which include regional, national and international contacts.

Accommodation: The guesthouse is a short walk from the chapel. It has two bedrooms (one large and one small), a large living space, bathroom, and kitchen.

The studio/exhibition space is approx. 9 by 18 m, by 8m high, with 5 large church windows. Window blinds and scaffolding are available. The large inner garden can be used as well. Please be advised that the walls of the chapel are uneven and moist and therefore not very suitable to hang drawings.

Funding: The residency and use of all facilities is free. In collaboration with the artists, HMK aims to secure additional funding in order to provide a travel/living/production budget. Amounts depend on individual projects.

Deadline: June 3rd, 2017, 5;00pm EST

The New Art Center’s Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) supports independent curators of contemporary art by making diverse visions possible in a non-profit and alternative exhibition space. The program investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts, exhibits strong curatorial voices, and encourages the timely examination of new ideas and perspectives.

The New Art Center (NAC) are currently accepting curatorial proposals for 5- to 6-week group exhibitions from September 2018 – May 2019 at the New Art Center in Newton, MA.

Eligibility: All artists and curators are eligible regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, belief, national origin, sexual orientation or physical abilities. While artists and curators from the greater Boston area are encouraged to participate, there are no geographic restrictions. Please keep in mind that the NAC does not pay for travel expenses or shipping of artwork.
Proposals will not be considered for one-person exhibitions or if they envision a general call to artists. Additionally, proposals will not be considered if they lack a statement of concept; require financial support from the Center beyond the usual stipend and services (see Support); are late or incomplete; are inappropriately scaled for the Main Gallery (see Gallery Space) or have prohibitively complex and/or expensive installation requirements.

The NAC provides:

  • a set budget for printing of a postcard invitation
  • a $1,000 USD curator stipend
  • public relations support such as sending press releases to press venues
  • advertisements, extensive listings, emails to our 10,000+ person mailing list, and posts to our social media feeds
  • duplication of material for distribution at the exhibition
  • gallery signage
  • insurance up to $150,000 in total for art work while it is at the NAC
  • physical assistance in preparing the space and installing the work
  • an opening reception with refreshments

Required:

  • Proposals must include works by two artists or more.
  • Proposals must include one public program with an educational component; more than one is encouraged (see ‘proposed public programs’ under Criteria, below).
  • In proposals including one’s own work, that work should not be the main focus of the exhibition, and should only be included if it supports the thesis. Artists wishing to include their own artwork in the proposal must be willing to eliminate their own work if the panel feels that such a cut would strengthen the exhibition.

Additional Considerations:     

  • The proposed exhibitions can include works in a single medium or several media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and video to installation, performance, and sound art. A variety of media or diverse use of similar media is recommended.
  • Exhibitions may be organized around medium or process

Artists with little to no experience with kiln-glass are encouraged to apply, but may be asked to attend a workshop in advance of the residency to familiarize themselves with the studio and kiln-glass methods. Applications are accepted biannually for Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall openings.

Artists are not required to finish a project during their residency, but will share their work, developments, and research with the Bullseye community through notes, blog posts, images, public lectures, studio visits, and various events throughout and closely following the residency. Artists are encouraged to invite their friends, peers, and the local community to visit while they are in residence.

Selection: A panel comprised of Bullseye staff, fellow artists, and art professionals chooses 8 artists or artist groups for residencies each year. Awards of residencies are at the discretion of Bullseye Glass Co. In some instances, artists are invited to participate without submitting an application.

Proposals must be compatible with the available studio tools, space and must accommodate the multi-use nature of Bullseye Resource Centers as well as Bullseye’s mission. Established as well as emerging artists are encouraged to apply.

About: Bullseye Glass Co. was founded in 1974 by three recent art school graduates and has remained, at its core, a factory for artists. Since its inception, Bullseye has invited artists to the factory in Portland, Oregon, to collaborate, experiment, ask questions, and push the boundaries of the material. Today, Bullseye has grown beyond a single factory. In addition to the Bullseye Studio in Portland, we now have studios at our Resource Centers in Santa Fe, the San Francisco Bay Area, and New York. These locations provide us with the opportunity to work with even more artists. Bullseye will host two residencies per year at each of our RC studio locations, allowing even more artists to experiment with tools and techniques while we all collaborate on pushing the technical, aesthetic, and conceptual boundaries of kiln-glass

Details regarding the call posted 5/7/17: Unauthorized SFMOMA Show

NOTE: We had a question from a concerned subscriber about the Unauthorized SFMOMA show and the lack of detailed information the organizers gave in response to questions asked about the show and who they are.  Because they were not forthcoming in details to questions asked, I called SFMOMA’s Development Department this afternoon and asked whether the Unauthorized Solo Show in their public spaces was in anyway associated with their programs. The person in SFMOMA’s Development Dept. did not know of such an exhibition with SFMOMA and said if there is a group, they may be trying to just takeover the public space of SFMOMA.  Prior to posting this call, we checked the call website and Facebook page it seemed alright with no disparaging remarks or complaints (5 days ago), although a bit skimpy in details. We at Bay Area Art Grind scour the internet looking for calls that may be of interest to artists, like ourselves since we are all artists here at the grind, and like to have a fair number of SF bay area calls as well as national and international calls. We check out if they have a functioning website, looks like it is legitimate, doesn’t have too high (if any) entry or residency fees, and complaints. We try to screen calls carefully before posting. This one caught us —-my Apologies for posting a call that was not transparent.  I should have known better since it IS called an Unauthorized show. The only way to “see” the artwork is to be in SFMOMA, access their site via a tablet or smartphone and allow them to access your location. We took the call down from our site.

Many Thanks to our wonderful followers and subscribers for forwarding questions or concerns about calls and sending information about experiences they have had with galleries and organizations.
