JAMAICA FLUX 5TH EDITION CALL FOR NEW YORK ARTISTS

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) is now accepting submissions through March 28, 2020 for Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 . JCAL seeks proposals from artists to research the neighborhood of Jamaica, Queens, in 2020 for the presentation, and possible creation, of new, site-specific, public art projects that engage the local community in 2021. 

Not confined by gallery walls, Jamaica Flux is a contemporary public art project in which visual and performance art are displayed at a variety of locations along Jamaica Avenue in Queens, NY, including public and private open spaces and storefronts. With the intent to build equity and expand cultural inclusion throughout Southeast Queens, Jamaica Fluxstrives to commission and present art that involves the local community and creates changes in behavior and policy while also documenting the developments and contradictions that arise in the process.

First conceived in 2002 as a pilot program addressing the isolation of the art gallery from the community, Jamaica Flux has evolved with the community in every iteration to reflect the pressing issues of the times and to advocate for social change through the arts. Now in its 5th iteration, Jamaica Flux: Workspaces & Windows 2021 is dedicated to advancing research and visual and performative actions that foster social change, critical public discourse on advocacy, policy change, economic growth, collective civic action, and community engagement. The project aims to bring artists, local residents, curators, scholars, community leaders, developers, and politicians together to catalyze the transformative power of the visual arts, building on the cultural legacy of Jamaica while addressing the challenges of a quickly growing local economy.

This is an exciting time for Downtown Jamaica, and we believe this iteration of Jamaica Fluxis timely to document the rapid changing neighborhood and to be a platform for artists to voice concerns and advocate ideas. Artists living in New York City are eligible to apply, and all media is welcomed.

Prizes: 

Artists will receive $500 for their research that involves dialogue and collaboration with local businesses, sites, and/or social organizations around Jamaica Avenue. Research outputs (drawings, renderings, photographs, video, text, interviews, maquettes, mark-ups et. al) will be exhibited in the Miller Gallery at the Jamaica Arts Center, from May 14 through July 10th 2021.

Depending on available funding, the artists will receive additional support of up to $2,500 to materialize their visions of creating new, site-specific, public artworks, and present their project to the public in the physical site proposed, along with related programming in 2021. A published print catalog will be produced and distributed both on- and offline following the exhibition in 2021.

Applicants must be NYC residents as of the application deadline or can demonstrate a significant, documented track record of artistic activity in NYC. Queens residents receive preference for all opportunities.

 

Selection Criteria : Applicants will be chosen based on the strength of their submitted work; quality samples are important.

Loretta Kaufman to Exhibit in NAWA’s “Small Works Winter 2020” Exhibition

Country:

Loretta Kaufman’s acrylic painting “Animated Forms IV (Family Group III):  Series M” was selected to be part of Small Works, a National Association of Women Artists’ (NAWA) Exhibition in February.  The exhibition was open to NAWA members and non-members who are US citizens and permanent residents.

No larger than 15” x 15” x 5”, the 63 artworks include paintings, photography, prints, mixed media and sculptures. Captured in this year’s exhibit is a demonstration of artistry in the use of design and color which allows the observer to share in each artist’s creative process. These are truly small creations with big perspectives. The exhibition runs from February 5 – 26, 2020 at the NAWA Gallery, 315 West 39th Street, Suite 508, New York, New York.  Gallery hours are Tue-Fri from 10 am to 5 pm with a reception on February 13th between 5 to 7 pm.  NAWA can be reached at 212-675-1616.

NAWA continues its long history of nurturing and inspiring talented, visionary and dynamic women artists from throughout the United States. Founded in 1889 by five brave and innovative women who were barred from full participation in the male dominated National Academy of Design and the Society of American Artists, NAWA’s existence is a testament to the integral and essential role of women in the art world.  Documented exhibitions are archived within the Smithsonian Institution archives.

In nearly five decades Nashville sculptor and painter, Loretta Kaufman, has produced work in several media that focus on the environment.  Loretta’s work has been juried into many of Fusion Art’s international exhibitions and won awards for both her sculptures and paintings.  In 2018, “Kingfisher With Minnow & Dragonfly: Circle of Life Series” was one of 3 paintings included in Artist’s Choice. The painting went on to receive the Cecile Adler Cliffer Memorial Cutting Edge Award in the National Association of Women Artists 129th Annual Members’ Exhibition in New York City in October 2018.  Also in 2018 Loretta’s clay sculpture, “Double Monologues I:  The Celia Series”, was exhibited in NAWA’s Small Works in New York and went on to win an Honorable Mention in Fusion Arts’ Women Artists.

all for Submissions: HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP)

Created 20 years ago to address a compelling need in the field—the void of artistic, administrative, and financial support for artists with certain professional accomplishments, but without breakthrough recognition—the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP) assists artists who are developing distinct artistic voices and experimenting with new approaches that expand the parameters of performance work.

As one of the most robust residency programs of this nature in the country and serving as a national model, HARP provides a commission, developmental support, career planning, and a full production to cross-genre artists, within a collaborative environment of peers working across disparate art forms – including theatre, dance, music, puppetry, visual art, and new media. HARP provides significant long-term support, as well as $50,000 in cash and $50,000 in space, equipment, and services over 2-3 years to tailor each residency to each artist’s individual needs. Through significant investment of time and resources, dynamic work within a strong community is created.
