Deadline: January 17th, 2019
Eligibility & Requirements: CPW’s photography-based Artist-In-Residence Program was created to expand the dialogue around diversity, race, identity and social justice, and to provide concrete opportunities for US-based artists, scholars and curators of color, who have often been under-represented in general programs. Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) are given access to facilities and financial, critical, and technical support. The drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.
WOODSTOCK AIR encourages participants to pursue creative risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on their own work, continue works in progress, set goals for the future, and break new ground. Each year CPW offers seven studio residencies and one residency for a critic/scholar/curator. WOODSTOCK AIR marks the first residency experience of over 65 percent of its participants. All proposals are welcomed.
- four to six week creative work time without interruptions
- accommodations with large studio at the Artist House located within walking distance from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district
- 24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities, including darkroom, digital lab (large format printers, flatbed and dedicated film scanners), and library
- critical and technical support
- exhibition and related opportunities
