Santa Fe Art Institute (NM), International Open Call for Applicants, 2020 Thematic and Family Residencies: Labor

Santa Fe Art Institute (NM), International Open Call for Applicants, 2020 Thematic and Family Residencies: Labor

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
  • The Family Residency is for just one month each year, in July only. Applicants who are not parents / guardians of a child are not eligible for this program.

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.

Solo Exhibition: The Solo Exhibition Open Call provides emerging and under-recognized artists the necessary resources to present an exhibition at CUE in 2020. The selected artists will receive valuable mentor support from an established artist or curator on the selection panel, including a studio visit and installation guidance in preparation for the exhibition. In addition, exhibiting artists each receive a $5,000 honorarium and an accompanying exhibition catalogue with an essay written by a participant in CUE’s Art Critic Mentoring Program. The exhibition program is open to artists working in all disciplines.

CUE’s Solo Exhibition Open Call is for artists who:

  • Do not have current, consistent commercial gallery representation in the United States
  • Are not currently enrolled in a degree program
  • Have a demonstrated, consistent studio practice outside an academic setting for three or more years

CUE provides institutional guidance and resources to the curator, who produces a group exhibition with related public programming and an accompanying exhibition catalogue. 

The selected curator will receive valuable mentor support from an established artist or curator on the selection panel, including installation guidance in preparation for the exhibition. In addition, the curator will be awarded a $2,500 honorarium; a budget of $2,500 to divide amongst participating artists and program speakers; and a production budget of $2,000. The culminating exhibition will be for five-weeks at the CUE Art Foundation in 2020.

Curatorial Project Guidelines:

  • Proposals must be conceptually rigorous and focus on artists, projects, and themes that are innovative, challenging, and engaging.
  • Extra consideration will be given to proposals that demonstrate a creative approach to curatorial research methods and the exhibition plan, as well as those that present ideas or topics that are not well-represented in the commercial sector.
  • The proposal must include four or more artists, half of whom must qualify as under-recognized (no gallery representation and no solo exhibitions in a major venue within the past five years).
  • Curators may not include their own work in the exhibition.
  • The curator and all proposed artists must live and work in the United States.
  • Extra consideration will be given to those in the beginning stages of their curatorial careers.

International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2019 – 2020

International Call for Applicants: Franklin Furnace Fund (NY) 2019 – 2020

Deadline: April 1st, 2019

From their call:  2019 is the 34th anniversary of the Franklin Furnace Fund. Initiated in 1985 with the support of Jerome Foundation, Franklin Furnace has annually awarded grants to early career artists selected by peer panel review to enable them to produce major performance art works in New York.

In the spring of 2008, Franklin Furnace combined the Franklin Furnace Fund for Performance Art and The Future of the Present programs into one, entitled the Franklin Furnace Fund. Franklin Furnace made the decision to combine these programs because during the last decade, artists have created works on every point of the spectrum between the body of the artist and the circulatory network of the Internet in the creation of temporal work.

The Franklin Furnace Fund is supported in 2019 – 2020 by Jerome Foundation and the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Grants range between $2,000 and $10,000 based on the peer review panel allocation of funding received by Franklin Furnace. Artists from all areas of the world are encouraged to apply; however, artists selected by the panel are expected to present their work in New York City. Full-time students are ineligible.

Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. Every year the panel changes, as do the definitions of “early career artist” and “performance art.” So if at first you don’t succeed, please try again.

Since 1985, the Fund has helped launch the careers of Jo Andres, Tanya Barfield, Jibz Cameron aka Dynasty Handbag, Lenora Champagne, Patty Chang, Papo Colo, Brody Condon, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Karen Finley, John Fleck, Coco Fusco, Kate Gilmore, Pablo Helguera, Donna Henes, Murray Hill, Holly Hughes, Liz Magic Laser, Taylor Mac, Robbie McCauley, Jennifer Miller, Naeem Mohaiemen, Rashaad Newsome, Clifford Owens, Pope.L, Dread Scott, Pamela Sneed, Fiona Templeton and Diane Torr, among other fund recipients.

About: Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc., on a mission to make the world safe for avant-garde art. Franklin Furnace’s mission is to present, preserve, interpret, proselytize and advocate on behalf of avant-garde art, especially forms that may be vulnerable due to institutional neglect, cultural bias, their ephemeral nature, or politically unpopular content. Franklin Furnace is dedicated to serving artists by providing both physical and virtual venues for the presentation of time-based art, including but not limited to artists’ books and periodicals, installation art, performance art, and unforeseen contemporary avant-garde artforms; and to undertake other activities related to these purposes. Franklin Furnace is committed to serving emerging artists; to assuming an aggressive pedagogical stance with regard to the value of avant-garde art to life; and to fostering artists’ zeal to broadcast ideas. They are based in Brooklyn, New York.

International Art Space (AU), International Call for Applicants, Spaced 4: Rural Utopias

International Art Space (AU), Intl Call for Applicants, Spaced 4: Rural Utopias

Deadline: April 15th, 2019, 5:00pm (Australia)

International Art Space is now seeking applications from visual and new-media artists interested in participating in the fourth iteration of spaced, our recurring program of context-responsive art.

Participating artists will be invited to live and work in Western Australian rural communities with the view to developing original art projects created in response to local social, historical and environmental situations. Projects will address the program’s overarching curatorial theme that focuses on the idea of “rural utopias.”

Artists will undertake up to two residencies, each running for 6 weeks or longer and both located in the same town. The first residency will focus on research and community engagement, the second on creating a major artwork. The residency will start on September 1st, 2019 and continue until December 31st, 2020. Participants who have completed the first round of residencies may submit proposals for works to be created during the second placement. Submissions will be assessed by IAS’ curatorial panel in consultation with the residency hosts, with the final selection to be made based on the projects’ intrinsic value and available funds.

Participating artists will be offered a remuneration package covering travel expenses, artists’ fees, and production costs.

Curatorial focus: Rural and remote locations have often attracted visionaries, seekers, and dreamers in pursuit of grand utopian goals, be they alternative communities, fantastically ambitious economic projects, spiritual renewal and other far-sighted or quixotic ventures. Sometimes, such schemes are conceived to escape from the dystopian living conditions of modern cities, which are seen as alienating, detached from nature and deprived of community bonds. Other times, rural utopias have a futuristic bent that stresses the untapped economic and social potential and aim to create a new type of non-urban-centric modernity.

In responding to this theme, artists have two options. The first is to create artworks that explore existing or historical utopian projects sited in or around the host community. Alternatively, artists can propose projects that have a utopian character. In either case, projects will have to be developed in dialogue with the local community and host organizations.

Website Link: http://three.spaced.org.au/spaced4

About: International Art Space (IAS) was established in 1998. Since its inception, IAS has run more than 120 residency-based projects by artists from 22 countries, created five national touring exhibitions and organized educational programs, professional mentorships and a range of other cultural and community activities.

PlatteForum (CO), Call for Applicants: 2019 – 2020 Artist-in-Residence Program, with stipend

Deadline: April 14th, 2019

PlatteForum, a 501 (c)3 non profit organization, is an award-winning and innovative arts, youth-development, and artist-in-residence program in Denver that teams under-resourced youth (K-12) with professional artists in intensive, structured, and long-term creative learning environments. Youth work side by side with resident artists to collaboratively plan, produce, and exhibit a body of work in an environment in which artistic excellence is highly valued. Youth in PlatteForum’s programs delve into a variety of art forms, confronting challenges and obstacles and making life-changing discoveries about who they are, what they are capable of achieving, and where they belong in the world.

PlatteForum, as an artist community, supports the creation and presentation of new art and ideas by contemporary artists. By supporting working artists, PlatteForum generates dialogue in the larger community about the role of the artist in society. Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residences are built upon the notion of engaging the broader community in the creation of new work, where artists, youth, and the public collaborate. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expanded thinking about what art is and can be.

Residencies at PlatteForum are competitive with over 100 applications and only five slots awarded each year. Each residency gives the artist the time, space and support to extend their work and share their ideas with the public. Artistic excellence, innovative ideas for engagement and collaboration with the public, and a diversity of ideas, genres, and methodologies are paramount in selecting artists for only four available slots in the Artist Residency program each season. Residencies are 6-8 weeks in duration. Residency timeslots follow the approximate schedule:
Residency A: Oct-Dec 2019
Residency B: Jan-March 2020
Residency C: March-May 2020
Residency D: June-July 2020
Residency E: June/July 2019

The Artist Residency program is open to artists in all genres. Applications from established professional artists, emerging artists, and graduate students are welcome. We encourage local, national, and international artists to apply. Artistic excellence, merit, and creative ways for interacting with the public as articulated in the application are important criteria in the selection process. Applicants must be able to speak and understand English. There is a three-year waiting period for former residents (for example, an Artist Resident from the 2012-13 season is not eligible to apply until the 2015-16 season).

Stipend: PlatteForum provides our facility, a stipend ($250/week) to help defray artist expenses, staff support, program administration, workshop support, youth workshop supplies, opening event, press releases, and invitations.

Housing: Guest housing will be provided by members of the PlatteForum community for out-of-town artists.

Meals: A full kitchen is available for artists’ use.

Residency Fees: None.

Site:Brooklyn (NY), International Open Call for Artists: Photography Series and Repetition

Deadline: March 14th, 2019, midnight MST

From their call: This show seeks to exhibit the diverse and exciting ways that photographers use sequence and series in their work. Repetition and seriality are built into the every level of photography from the production process, to its aesthetic theory, to the real-life practice of taking pictures. Photographs are often seen as representations or repetitions of reality itself, all while photography itself shapes modern consciousness just as much as it re-creates it. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work that actively engages with all aspects of repetition and series in photography. This might include subject matter, formal qualities, method, presentation, and much else.

Juror: Elisabeth Biondi has been an independent curator and writer since 2011. Before that she was the Visuals Editor of The New Yorker for 15 years, where she shaped the look of the publication by establishing a group of staff photographers, commissioning both masters and emerging talent. She built the magazine’s reputation for its use of photography, for which it received numerous awards, including two National Magazine Awards.

Eligibility: This is a juried exhibition for artists working in photography. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older.

Maximum Size: 60” X 60” X 12” D, All artwork must be priced for sale. Entry fee.

From their call: The University of Oklahoma School of Visual Arts invites artists to submit works that engage the idea of “the vessel.” Throughout the history of ceramic art the vessel has been a creative impetus to explore the vessel as spiritual, functional, controversial, and esoteric.

Both functional and sculptural approaches to the theme are encouraged. Artists may engage other materials so long as the juror identifies that 70% of the work is made from ceramic material. Entry fee.

Awards: The juror will select a $350 first place, a $200 second place. and $100 third place award, as well as, honorable mention awards as determined. A digital exhibition catalog and website will be created for this exhibition and featured by OUSoVA.

Site:Brooklyn (NY), International Open Call for Artists: The Freedom of Abstraction

3609

Site:Brooklyn (NY), International Open Call for Artists: The Freedom of Abstraction

Deadline: March 12th, 2019, midnight MST

From their call: The rise of abstraction meant freedom from the strictures and constraints of naturalism and representation. For some, it means stripping away the visual irrelevancies of nature in order to explore different subjects, an exploration of the artist’s own imagination, or finding the essential qualities a form observed in the real world. The freedom of abstraction rests on a paradox: the liberation of non-objective art often meant the new focus on order, form, and purity.

Juror: Julia Halperin is executive editor of artnet News, where she oversees editorial operations for the world’s most widely read art news site and manages a staff of editors and writers in London, Berlin, and New York. Previously, she served as museums editor of The Art Newspaper, where she oversaw international coverage of museums and other major art institutions, and as news editor of Art + Auction magazine. Her writing has appeared in WIRED magazine, the New York Observer, and New York magazine

Eligibility: This is a juried exhibition for artists working in drawing, painting, printmaking, wall mounted sculpture, collage, and video. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years of age or older.

Maximum Size: 60” X 60” X 12” D, All artwork must be priced for sale. Entry fee.

Exhibition dates: May 3rd – June 1st, 2019

Arts Benicia (CA), International Call for Artists, Enchanted Realm: Metaphors of Natural Design

Arts Benicia (CA), International Call for Artists, Enchanted Realm: Metaphors of Natural Design

Deadline: April 1st, 2019, 10:59pm PST

From their call: This exhibition and associated public events seek to capture and explore the ways that birds influence our understanding of our place in the world. To understand ourselves and our surroundings, humans think in metaphor and view the world through an imagined lens. As the enchanted realm of birds provides a natural metaphor for the innate desires and aspirations of human existence, so too does it inspire the creation of art. The sheer scale of birds in nature, found in every earthly domain no matter how inhospitable, and their remarkable mechanisms of adaptation to land, air, and sea, contribute to our fascination.
  
The theme is designed to embrace a wide variety of artistic work, with subjects that may include avian behaviors; adaptations; structures such as feathers, nests, and eggs; birdwatching; technologies based on avian studies; bird symbolism; and other endeavors inspired by our connections with and love of bird life. All media will be considered, including: painting, printmaking, photography, drawing, sculpture, book art, video, sound art, and installation.

For information about installation works, or video or sound submissions, direct your inquiries to lisa@artsbenicia.org before applying, and use Enchanted Realm as your subject line.

Special note: Due to federal and state regulations, artworks for sale must not include wild-gathered or found nests, eggs, feathers, bones, or other bird body parts, unless the artist holds the correct agency permits. Feathers, eggs, body parts, and other elements ARE permitted from domestic fowl species, legally-owned pet birds, dyed or painted domestic feather “replicas’ of other bird species, and human-manufactured birds nest or egg replicas.

Juror: Sarah Barsness was born and raised in the American West. Her photographs, installations and mixed media pieces – which incorporate photography, printmaking, fabric, and other media – have been exhibited in the Bay Area, throughout the USA, Greece, Mexico and Japan. She is a past Affiliate Artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts, and a former Artist in Residence at Recology  – the San Francisco “dump.” She is an alumna of the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle,  where she also taught for many years, and received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Previously she was a full-time faculty in the School of Photography at the Academy of Art University and she currently heads the department of photography at Solano Community College.
