Material Transformations Visual Arts Thematic | In Person

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview

Material Transformations invites a collective investigation of the radical potential embedded in organic matter. Led by Candice Lin with Mel Y. Chen, Beatriz Cortez, and Kristine Thompson, this residency will think with the histories latent within natural materials used in artistic production, such as the extractive legacies of different insects, minerals, and clay. Open to visual artists working across mediums, the program will also look at the way in which plants have been used as modes of healing or resistance to dominant systems of power, examining links between plants, nature conservation, colonial bioprospecting, and discourses of hygiene and eugenics.

Embracing what Mel Y. Chen has described as “queer inhumanisms,” Material Transformations questions what constitutes the human and non-human and will explore connections between "matter and mattering."¹  By utilizing natural materials in a variety of modalities that change over time or offer surprising outcomes based on chance, the residency will reflect on de-centred notions of mastery and authorship, opening up the processes of making to aspects of transformation beyond one’s artistic control.

Alongside talks and studio visits with faculty and guest lecturers, the program will also incorporate a series of introductory workshops in various materials-based processes which may include natural ink-making; anthotype photography; lost wax bronze-casting; and soda-fired ceramics. Through these collective experiments in material transfiguration, participants will be invited to expand their knowledge in, and through, materials; expressing new relationships to both entangled histories and potential futures.

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.

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 than two are welcome to apply.

Application Deadline: March 09, 2022

Evolution Quartet 2022

Share

Category:

City:

Eligibility:

Overview

Evolution: Quartet is a highly specialized, two-week program that provides early-career string quartets and composers the opportunity to enrich their approaches to interpretation, performance practice and composition. Working with faculty in a unique educational environment that considers the entire lineage of the genre as a constantly evolving whole, participant ensembles are able to hone their craft, identify gaps, and reconsider priorities as they work towards cultivating the artistic attributes that define their ensemble. 

Led by the internationally celebrated Eybler, Parker, and JACK string quartets, the Evolution: Quartet mentor group is further reinforced by an extraordinary cohort of scholars, composers and instrumentalists. Participants will explore the early string quartet, with sessions on intonation, harmony, and structure, as well as in-depth discussions on style and rhetoric. Repertoire from the traditional canon will be studied and performed alongside contemporary works presented by faculty artists. Public performances will feature a full breadth of string quartet repertoire including new works by participant composers and guest faculty. 

What does the program offer?

In 2022 Evolution: Quartet is being limited to six pre-formed string quartets and six composers. The program is led by three internationally celebrated faculty quartets with overlapping expertise in period performance, modern and contemporary practices. Participants will also have access to an unprecedented breadth of knowledge and performance experience, from composer Suzanne Farrin, musicologist Suzannah Clark, the Gryphon Trio and other guest mentors.

Daily presentations and faculty-led discussions will focus on intonation, quartet dynamics, affect and rhetoric, advanced rhythm, performing editions, structural analysis, introduction to neo-Riemannian theory, in-depth exploration of faculty composers' work and process, collaboration, right relations, and diversity/equity/inclusion. The residency includes on campus public performance opportunities, and performance and composition faculty will also offer coaching and private lessons.

The six participant composers will be paired with the quartets to create new works that will be premiered at the end of the program. Participant composers will work with faculty composer Suzanne Farrin, visiting composer Felipe Lara and the other Evolution: Quartet faculty, in a program that supports their full creation process from inception to premiere of a new work for string quartet. Composers will engage in an intensive and impactful process that allows them to learn from, and deeply invest in one another’s creative development. Composer/quartet rehearsals will take place on campus throughout the on-site program, and premieres will be featured in each participant quartet’s final performance. 

Prior to the July 10th commencement of the on campus program participant composers will work with composer mentor Suzanne Farrin in an on-line format to develop their compositions and prepare for the on-campus experience. 

Who Should Apply?

This program is open to emerging and professional quartets and composers worldwide.

Session Two on campus: June 19-July 7 

The schedule will include daily group meetings, individual music and curation development coachings, performances on and off campus, as well as sessions focused on deep listening, improvisation and movement, career development, public speaking, Alexander technique and Pilates practices, collaboration, right relations, and diversity/equity/inclusion.
