A Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

ABOGA Blade of Grass (NY), National Call for Applicants: 2019 Fellowships for Individual Artists and Collectives, Socially Engaged Art

Deadline: November 16th, 2018, 11:59pm EST

About the Fellowship: We believe in the power of socially engaged artists to participate meaningfully in creating a more just, equitable, sustainable, joyful, and compassionate future. We know this means that artists must take time and care to develop relationships built on mutual trust, as well as work with diverse non-arts partners and communities. We understand there are no ready-made roadmaps or guaranteed outcomes for this type of work, and are committed to learning how artists navigate these processes and relationships.

Our fellowship program is meant to support courageous artists in creating exchanges, experiences, and structures that highlight seemingly intractable social problems, inspire audiences, and energize folks to participate in and sustain long-term social change work. This is hard and time-consuming organizational, intellectual, and emotional work.

For these reasons, beginning this year we are separating our financial support to fellows from our content and audience-building work for the field into two separate programs. This decision reflects our dual commitment to supporting artists who engage in high risk and high trust work that wouldn’t benefit from increased visibility of the process, as well as to producing high quality video, web, and print content, and experiences that push the discourse and expand audience for the field of socially engaged art.

We are committed to providing relatively unrestricted funding that incorporates a collaborative research component. Field research conducted by ABOG’s Director of Field Research replaces grant reporting written by the artist, and is grounded in the goals and areas of inquiry defined by the artist and the perspective of project participants.

Selected Fellows will receive:

  • $20,000 in minimally restricted support
  • Comprehensive written Field Research Reports that utilize action research methodology
  • Expenses Paid 2-day Orientation Retreat in NYC to engage a cohort of peer artists and ABOG staff and board (a requirement for the fellowship)
  • Ongoing invitations to networking events for all ABOG Fellows and Alumni twice annually (attendance voluntary)
  • Ongoing promotion of fellow’s projects through ABOG social media networks and website

In addition to direct artist support, another primary goal of ABOG is to make the “invisible” parts of socially engaged art visible. We do this through documentary films, publications, web content, and public programming.

Fellowship Projects may become the focus of ABOG content and programming including:

  • Curriculum and advocacy that advance the field of socially engaged art
  • Inclusion in our new biannual periodical (available in print and free online)
  • Participation in documentary videos focused on curatorial themes of interest to the field
  • Other web content (podcasts, interviews, critical essays)
  • Participation in ongoing public programs

This year we streamlined the application process and are no longer asking for preliminary Letters of Interest. All interested and eligible applicants will submit their full narrative application and supplementals, with only finalists having to submit more detailed budgets and timelines.

Website link: http://www.abladeofgrass.org/fellowship-program/#how-to-apply

Note: This is a two-step application process. Semi-finalists from the first round will be invited to submit a full application with an extended narrative, budget, and a timeline.

About: A Blade of Grass nurtures socially engaged art. They provide resources to artists who demonstrate artistic excellence and serve as innovative conduits for social change. They evaluate the quality of work in this evolving field by fostering an inclusive, practical discourse about the aesthetics, function, ethics and meaning of socially engaged art that resonates within and outside the contemporary art dialogue. They are located in New York City.

Soho Photo (NY), International Call for Entries: 2019 International Krappy Kamera Competition

sohoSoho Photo (NY), International Call for Entries: 2019 International Krappy Kamera Competition

Deadline: January 7th, 2019

From their call: Our philosophy at Soho Photo Gallery is that in the hands of any artist great photographs can be made with basic equipment.  To explore this talent, we are searching for extraordinary photographs made with lousy lenses. Examples of some Krappy Kameras are the Holga, Diana, Ansco, and pinhole cameras. You can also create your own Krappy Kamera by using your non-Krappy Kamera (e.g. 4×5, SRL, DSLR) and exchanging the lens with a Krappy lens (e.g.pinhole body cap or Holga-type lens).Cell phones, disposables and point and shoot cameras are ineligible. Remember, just because a camera is old and moldy doesn’t make it Krappy.The lens is the determining factor.

Juror: Michelle Bates is this year’s juror. She has photographed and exhibited Holga imagery since 1991. She is the author of Plastic Cameras: Toying with Creativity, the most comprehensive collection of the history of toy cameras, how-to information and images by 50 photographers. She has given many talks and workshops a  at  bookstores, photography schools and conferences throughout the U.S. and internationally. Michelle won first prize at Krappy Kamera in 2008.  She has juried many exhibitions and is thrilled to be able to see all the entries for the 2019 show.

Awards: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded as well as three honorable mentions. Winners will be listed on the Soho Photo Gallery web site.

Beacon Gallery (MA), International Call for Entries: Analog | Digital

Beacon Gallery (MA), International Call for Entries: Analog | Digital

Deadline: November 30th, 2018

From their call: Blinking rectangles of various sizes dominate our digital daily lives. Cameras and sensors capture our every move. Networks, algorithms and protocols, document, predict and alter our behavior. Theoretically, human beings are more connected than ever before.

But are we?  While some view the analog to digital transition as a great equalizer and a unifying force, others see it as quite the opposite—a secularizing, divisive means to a lonely, uber-fractionalized society.

Regardless of where you stand on the matter, it is inarguable that the shift from analog to digital has influenced almost every facet of our lives—from how we consume information and exchange goods to how we meet, date, shop, and travel. In virtually every industry and in every home, the analog to digital transition has had a profound impact.

What we want to know is: How has the analog to digital transition impacted you—the artist? How does it make you feel? Cynical or hopeful? Free or confined? Connected or marginalized? How has it affected your work? Has it freed you or constrained you?

In the medium of your choice—painting, mixed media, video, sculpture or photography —Beacon Gallery would like you to explore how the Analog to Digital transformation has impacted your work, your identity, your family, your community, your (metaphorically) “pixelated” view of the world at large.

San Francisco Arts Commission (CA), National Request for Qualifications: Sculpture Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou at San Francisco Main Library

San Francisco Arts Commission (CA), National Request for Qualifications: Sculpture Honoring Dr. Maya Angelou at San Francisco Main Library

Deadline: January 11th, 2019, 11:59pm PST

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently passed a resolution entitled “Affirming San Francisco’s Commitment to 30% Female Representation in the Public Realm by the year 2020.” The Resolution recognizes that although 51% of the population is female, women are woefully underrepresented in sectors of public and private leadership roles, and their historical contributions are inadequately recognized in public statues and memorials. The Resolution asserts that research suggests that 30 percent is the proportion when critical mass is reached and in a group setting, the voices of the minority group become heard in their own right. There is a national movement to increase female representation in the public realm to 30 percent by the year 2020, the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution granting women the right to vote.

The Resolution urges San Francisco to meet and exceed that minimum threshold of female representation by recognizing the contribution that women have made to San Francisco and the world and urges all City departments to endeavor to achieve at least 30 percent non-fiction female representation in the public realm through works of art on City property, names of streets and right-of-ways, parks, public buildings and department websites and publications.

The first of these projects has been identified as an artwork honoring Dr. Maya Angelou in recognition of her many accomplishments including breaking the color and gender barriers by becoming San Francisco’s first African American female streetcar conductor, an award-winning author and poet, a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and a civil rights leader. The artwork will be located at the main branch of the San Francisco Library, which is located at 100 Larkin St.,in the Civic Center Complex, facing City Hall.

Awards:
Finalist Honoraria:  $2,000. plus travel allowance up to $1,000. for out of town artists
Artist’s Contract: The artist’s contract for artwork will be $180,000., inclusive of all artist’s fees, and associated expenses for design, structural engineering, fabrication, insurance, transportation and consultation during installation.
Installation Allowance (under a separate contract between the Commission and an art handler):  $20,000.

Eligibility: Eligibility is open to professional, practicing artists who reside in the United States. Entries not meeting eligibility guidelines will be withdrawn from consideration.

The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art (CA),  Open Call for Artists: Craft Revolution

Deadline: December 29th, 2018, midnight PST

OCCCA also seeks unusual, avant-garde, hybrid artworks that merge together, in a single piece, elements of fine art and the traditional crafts. Craft Revolution will illuminate an important truth about contemporary art: we can no longer categorically separate craft, fine art, decorative art, and utilitarian, designer objects.

Sophisticated, well-crafted objects — no matter the medium — inevitably elicit a frisson of desire.Give our esteemed juror a thrill with the pure perfection of your work.

Juror: Staci Steinberger, Associate Curator, Decorative Arts and Design, Los Angeles County Museum of Art  

Sales will be promoted. OCCCA will retain a 40% commission on all sales. Entry fee.

Deadline: November 15th, 2018

Montgomery College, Rockville and Germantown Art Department is seeking proposals for its ArtWalk/Artist-in-Residence Program (AIR), with a focus on arts initiatives for public, social, or community based outdoor visual arts projects.

ArtWalk is a week to two weeks of public art in which art classes install outdoor public art or lead participatory art activities on the Germantown and Rockville Campuses. The Spring Artist in Residence (AiR) will work with students both inside and outside the classroom to create work that will engage students and AiR during the existing outdoor ArtWalk weeks on the Rockville and Germantown campuses. This collaborative work will use art and creative thinking to impact the community of students on each campus, and should focus on projects that culminate in activities and projects to be viewed or participated in outdoors.

The three-week Artist in Residence program of the Rockville and Germantown Art Department augments the studio arts curriculum by providing students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by visiting artists. This is accomplished by: Enabling students to work with contemporary artists other than faculty, Fostering a vested commitment between artist, student and the educational setting of the College, and Enhancing the Department’s curriculum.

What we are looking for: We are seeking individuals or groups with a wide range of artistic practices outside the traditional studio arts foundation curriculum. Proposals should offer a mutually supportive creative learning environment between students, classes, and Artist.

Who may apply: Professional artists or Artists Groups in all visual arts disciplines who are interested in working with students are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to applicants whose work and proposal expand on the working range of foundation level teaching.

Project Stipend:  A stipend of $3000. will be available for the three-week AIR, which includes transportation, installation of work, and compensation of time. Student materials for any proposed collaboration with students will be supported through a separate budget and will be determined based on the size and scope of the work.

Project criteria: Candidates should submit a proposal for collaborative processes and programming that provides foundation level students with direct hands-on experience in the arts that is guided by the Artist. The Spring 2019 ArtWalk/AIR will be focused on public, social, or community based outdoor visual arts projects on the Rockville and Germantown Campuses. Outdoor projects may include temporary installations, performances, participatory activities, and outdoor installation of the artist’s work. The Artist-in-Residence is asked to give an artist’s talk at the start of the residency and engage with students through workshops to prepare for ArtWalk.

Availability to work with students and classes
The Spring 2019 residency is tentatively scheduled for the month of April. The dates of the residency include time to work with art students in the studio in preparation for ArtWalk and ArtWalk itself, which is scheduled for April 15 – 18 in Rockville and April 15 – 25 in Germantown.  The selected Artist/Artist Group will be expected to be available during scheduled class times over the three-week programming. The Artist/Artist Group will be provided with a calendar of the Art Department’s scheduled classes and will consult with the Special Projects Coordinator in preparing a program that is compatible with this schedule.

Collaborative projects and installations are generally based on the Rockville Campus, but also include outreach to the Germantown Campus art classes for a portion of the residency.

Acadia National Park (ME), Open Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence Program 2019

23DD9190-1DD8-B71C-0EF132132F9F9218Acadia National Park (ME), Open Call for Applicants: Artist-in-Residence Program 2019

Deadline: December 31st, 2018

The Artist-in-Residence program at Acadia National Park encourages accomplished, professional artists to create fresh and innovative new ways for visitors to experience the park through the arts. Selected artists travel to and take part in the program at their own expense at the invitation of the park superintendent. There is no stipend or support provided beyond park housing, and the possibility of collaborative opportunties with some park staff. Local transportation is not provided. Participants must possess a valid drivers license and personal vehicle. Paricipants are at liberty to use online fundraising campaigns to help cover travel and other costs associated with their residencies, but they may not brand, promote, or imply endorsement of such activities by the National Park Service, Acadia National Park, or the Artist-in-Residence program.

In exchange for 14 nights in park-provided housing over a residency year, participants are asked to host a public outreach activity with park visitors, and to donate within a year one finished work of art that depicts a new perspective of Acadia for visitors that’s drawn from their own experience. Pieces donated to the program collection are included in a permanent online catalog on the park website, and displayed seasonally in public spaces within the park, surrounding communities, and beyond.

An open call for online applications spans from October 1 through December 31, 2018. The process is open to all, but is highly selective based upon prior professional achievement and broader program goals to foster innovation, diversity, and relevance with new audiences. A required application fee of $25 directly benefits program operational costs, such as participant housing, supplies for public display spaces, and staffing assistance with public outreach activities.

Applications are reviewed by juries consisting of past program participants, subject matter experts, local community members, and park staff. The jury period typically spans from January 1 through March 1 each year. The park superintendent then reviews and extends formal invitations to individual participants. Once all available residencies are accepted, other remaining applicants are notified of the outcome of their submissions via email, preferably before March 31 each year. Once specific housing and residency dates are fully confirmed, park staff will craft a press release announcing the names and qualifications of all selected participants, preferably before May 1.

Currently, the total number of AiR participants at Acadia is capped at eight each year. Some residency opportunities may be left unfilled.

  • Four for Visual Arts in painting, textiles, sculpture, fine art photography, etc
  • Two for Writing in essays, poetry, drama, etc
  • Two for “At-Large” categories including music, dance, indigenous arts, emerging techologies, etc
