Deadline: August 1st, 2017

Fall 2017 Residency Dates: October 21st – November 18th, 2017

From their call: Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual.

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians. Frequent visitors include coyotes, deer and wild turkeys. The barn is home to chickens, sheep, horses, goats, cats, a cow and a pig. There is also a private residence on the property, which is not available for use by residents.

The residency is located in a remote area; the closest village is a 7-minute drive or 25-minute bike ride. There is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Eligibility: Artists of any age from any country may apply. We accept solo artists as well as collaborating teams of up to three people. We are particularly interested in applicants whose practice involves a defined engagement with landscape, ecology, and or projects that employ historical or first-hand research of the 108 site. Please have your statement reflect this intention.

Support: Housing, workspace and weekly stipend for food.

Cost: No cost, participants only assume their own travel and material expenses.

Application materials are the following:
–  Copy of resume
–  Statement of intent

Writers: Two work samples – up to 20 pages each.

Arts Benicia (CA), National Call for Entries: Mapping as Source – the Personal Cartography of Art Maps

arts-benicia-logo-cmykArts Benicia (CA), National Call for Entries: Mapping as Source – the Personal Cartography of Art Maps

Deadline: June 30th, 2017, midnight PST

From their call: There has always been a mapping impulse in human consciousness. The map is the quintessential tool for charting human progress, collective knowledge, and personal experience. Maps establish boundaries and meanings. They are a source of discovery and use a specific language. They also provide windows into the unknown.

“Artists chart singular perceptions rather than assert any collective truth.” (Katharine Harmon) The artist map conveys personal territory, calling out to viewers, “I Am Here”. Art maps can be used for exploration of the personal, the political, or as a tool to investigate the experimental. Mapping as Source focuses on the many ways artists use or create maps for personal expression.

Juror: Katharine Harmon produces books that showcase the work of artists, photographers, and illustrators, and use engaging writing and graphic imagery to explain sometimes esoteric concepts. She is principal at Tributary Books in Seattle and author of “You Are Here, Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination”“The Map as Art, Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography”.

Accepted Media: All media accepted, included but not limited to collage, assemblage, mixed media, new media (video), digital, and installation. Multidisciplinary work is encouraged. No size restriction

Sales: Artists receive 60% on the sale of their work.

Website link for more detailed information and link to entry: https://artsbenicia.org/call-for-art-mapping-as-source/

About: Arts Benicia’s pristine 2,000 square foot gallery is the focal point of a large artists’ community based in Benicia’s Historic Arsenal District. Arts Benicia is a community-based non-profit organization that provides quality exhibitions in its gallery and at other venues in Benicia, engaging public programs, stimulating workshops for adults, and inspiring family and youth art programs.

Deadline: June 1st, 2017

Once a year HMK sends out an open call for artists and curators to hand in a proposal for a residency period. A residency typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks (note: the chapel is only available for up to 4 weeks before an exhibition). During a stay in our guesthouse, residents are invited to develop, execute and present new work in the chapel/exhibition space and/or elsewhere in Hoorn. The Netherlands is a small country that is easy to navigate by train, and we stimulate artists to also use the residency as an opportunity to explore other places, museums and project spaces.

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.

New Art Center (MA), International Call for Applicants: Curatorial Opportunity Program 2017, with stipend

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
