Craft as Contemporary Art

Country:

City:

Overview

The Craft as Contemporary Art residency will explore what it means to create art using materials and processes associated with practices of craft. Contemporary art continues to make room for and popularize ceramics, textiles, hand-making, decoration and materiality. This program will investigate how these disciplines and approaches are being activated and consider the ideas craft is being asked to communicate.

As we explore this area of practice, we will also discuss the histories and socio-political movements that inform the use of craft today and bring attention to historical distinctions between high/low, inside/outside, and art/craft that may no longer apply.

The program will focus on the confluence of craft and contemporary art, and the intersection of these fields with topics of feminism, cultural identity, labour, materiality, object-centered theory, de/re-skilling, and activism.

What does the program offer?

Residencies offer a structured program where visual artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is for visual artists with an exhibition/publication record who have completed formal training in visual arts at the post-secondary level, or who have equivalent experience and recognition from their peers. Collaborative groups of no more that 2 are welcome to apply.

Overview

Earthed explores visual art practices that shed light on planetary processes and concerns. Such artistic practices may operate on the margins of the typical systems of art production and exchange. These practices may employ art as a conduit to engage with environmental issues including regenerative living, habitat loss and degradation, climate breakdown, biodiversity, adaptation, and more.  

This program investigates the confluence of ethics and aesthetics in search of alternative structures to raise cultural and political awareness of urgent environmental issues.

Led by artists Ackroyd & Harvey, whose work intersects art, activism, architecture, biology, ecology and history, this residency will also include engagements with local scientists, biologist, and ecologists.
