International Call for Applicants: Residency 108 (NY), Spring 2019

108

International Call for Applicants: Residency 108 (NY), Spring 2019

Deadline: January 15th, 2019

Spring 2019 Residency dates: April 22nd – May 20th, 2019

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.

Applicants will be notified by or before the beginning of February.

Eligibility: Artists of any age from any country may apply. We accept solo artists as well as collaborating teams of up to three people.

For more detailed information: http://www.residency108.org/

About: 108 Residency is located in Clermont, New York.

The farm is 20 minutes from Rhinebeck, a village with many restaurants and shops, and 5 minutes from Tivoli, a 2-block hamlet with a handful of restaurants.
