Deadline: April 1st, 2019, 11:59pm MDT

From their call: Through our open call for applications, the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) seeks artworks, creative research, and innovative actions that consider what vitality, prosperity, and sustainability might look like beyond profit to envision new systems for “making a living” that elevate all of humanity and infuse our world with freedom, compassion, and harmony; and that reflect the profoundly generative acts of labor.

Guiding Questions

  1. How can art and creative action conscientiously expand public discourse around the intersections of gender, race, and class with the economic and political dynamics of labor?
  2. How might artists’ enduring relationship to emotional, intellectual, and immaterial labor improve the recognition and valuation of invisible or marginalized forms of social and cultural production?
  3. How can we creatively envision and enact bold new models of labor, distinct from dominant global reliance on wages, commodities, and privatized production, and which instead embrace radically humane, inclusive, and collaborative efforts.

Eligibility

  • SFAI welcomes Local, National, and International applicants of all backgrounds.
  • Applicants must be 25 years and older.
  • SFAI accepts applications from Individuals, Collaborations, and Families.
  • SFAI’s International Thematic Residency Program is open to all artistic disciplines (e.g., visual arts, writing, performance, new media, etc.) and other creative practices including, but not limited to, curation, design, architecture, and education. SFAI strongly encourages applicants with interdisciplinary and non-traditional creative practices

apexart (NY), International Open Call for Exhibition Proposals 2019 – 2020

apex

apexart (NY), International Open Call for Exhibition Proposals 2019 – 2020

Deadlines: March 1st, 2019

apexart’s International Open Call is soliciting exhibition proposals from February 1st -March 1st, 2019. The four proposals with the highest scores will be presented by the organizers in the countries specified as part of apexart’s 2019 – 2020 exhibition season. Curators, artists, writers, and creative individuals, regardless of experience level or location, are invited to submit a proposal online for any international (or domestic) location outside of New York City and its metropolitan area.

The submission process: Proposals should describe compact, focused, idea-driven, and original group exhibitions. No biographical information, CVs, links, or images will be accepted. Submissions cannot exceed 500 words and should be submitted in English.

The selection process: Rather than convene a small panel to review hundreds of ideas, apexart’s crowdsourced voting system utilizes many jurors to individually review a small subset of proposals. An international jury composed of 300+ individuals from a wide variety of professional backgrounds rate the proposals based on interest, content, and the organizers’ ability to communicate their ideas. To make the system as fair as possible, proposals are anonymous and randomized for each juror, which ensures that each submission receives the same consideration. apexart does not influence the decisions of the jury in any way.

The results: The organizers/curators of the four highest-ranked proposals will each receive an exhibition budget of up to USD 11,000 and will work closely with the apexart team to turn their ideas into apexart exhibitions. Exhibition organizers are expected and challenged to work within the funding provided to transform their winning proposals into strong, focused, noteworthy, and relevant exhibitions.

Budget: apexart has increased the budget substantially to $10,000 for each Open Call exhibition and related programming. Each organizer must work within apexart’s budget to cover expenses including curator travel, artwork shipping, artist and public program participant honorariums, equipment, installation, and venue fees with $8,000 of the budget. Of the $10,000, the organizer receives up to a $2,000 honorarium for coordinating the project and writing the exhibition brochure essay. For exhibitions outside NYC, apexart will match up to $1,000 for a location rental if necessary.

Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts (MT), International Call for Applicants: Artist Residencies 2019 – 2020

top-gallery2

Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts (MT), International Call for Applicants: Artist Residencies 2019 – 2020

Deadline: March 1st, 2019

From their website: What defines a Bray residency and the reasons for doing one turn out to be as varied and unique as the individuals involved. Some artists come to develop a portfolio for graduate school, some use their residency as a transition from school to establishing their own studio and others see it as a chance to escape from daily routine and recharge their creative enthusiasm. For all artists, it is a period of time to focus intensely on their work, explore new ideas and techniques, and push their work to new levels.

Probably the most important reason for coming to the Bray is the opportunity to work within a community of artists actively creating art. At the Bray, artists from around the world with a vast range of experiences and diverse aesthetic approaches, cultures and perspectives come together. Sharing discoveries, frustrations and triumphs, and working together over an extended period of time establishes friendships and connections that open new paths, develop careers, and change lives.

Residency Options: Residencies range from a few months (short-term and summer) to up to two years (long-term). New residents are chosen once a year in March by the Bray’s director and a rotating jury of two other ceramic artists. The selections are based on the quality of the work, its artistic merit, and the diversity of the prospective group in terms of work, background, and stage of career development. The diversity of the group is very important; an undergraduate doing figurative sculpture may be working next to a retired professor making functional pots, and each will learn from and teach the other.

Fellowships & scholarships link:http://www.archiebray.org/residence_program/fellowships_scholarships.html

Residency application information: http://www.archiebray.org/residence_program/application.html

About: The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts (MT), International Call for Applicants: Artist Residencies is a public, nonprofit, educational institution founded in 1951 by brickmaker Archie Bray, who intended it to be “a place to make available for all who are seriously and sincerely interested in any of the branches of the ceramic arts, a fine place to work.” Its primary mission is to provide an environment that stimulates creative work in ceramics. They are located in Helena, Montana.

The Image Flow (CA), National Call for Applicants:  Artist in Residence Program, Summer 2019

Deadline: April 1st, 2019, 11:59pm PST

From their call:  The Image Flow invites applications for a 2 – 3 month Artist Residency program to support a visual artist working within photography and/or image-based media. This is a work-only residency; artists not local to the area are welcome to apply but will need to secure housing arrangements independently. The time frame for the residency is flexible, ideally taking place between the months of June and September 2019.

Following the 2018 AIR call, we were so impressed with the quality of submissions from applicants that we decided to accept two artists, both working with analog processes. One artist created experimental photograms using our traditional black and white darkroom space, while the other continued a body of work in the gum bichromate process utilizing our alternative darkroom facilities. We are excited to once again host an artist (or artists) that can benefit from the use of our resources in 2019.

The selected resident photographer will gain access to our photo studio and lighting, a dedicated workspace with Epson 7880 and 3880 printers, traditional and alternative darkrooms, and a limited supply of inkjet papers for printing purposes. Participants in the residency program are expected to use their time to pursue their own personal projects, which may include photographing, printing, or other work inherent to their specific endeavors.

Eligibility: All artists living or working in the United States working in photography and/or image-based processes.
