OPEN CALL DEADLINE // 15 MARCH 2019 (23.59 CET)
RESIDENCY DATES // 5 AUGUST – 6 SEPTEMBER 2019

For Now that’s what I call an artist’s residency! art writer, Artforum contributor and PRAKSIS co-founder Rachel Withers invites applications from anyone who’d like to spend a month with PRAKSIS in Oslo, developing their art practice. Workers in any medium or art-oriented practice (criticism, art theory, art history) will be considered. She challenges you to send us the most ingenious, original and practical month-long work plan you can cook up.

Today, from Aarau to Zalaegerszeg, artists’ residencies proliferate. Websites such as TransArtists and ResArtis list thousands, from the lavishly resourced and wildly prestigious, to low-and-no-budget initiatives open to anyone with motivation, talent, and scope to step away from their job and/or family for a given period. Underlying this relatively untheorised phenomenon are numerous assumptions about how artists create and what they “give back” to the communities that host them. During the residency, Withers plans to inventory and reflect on those assumptions, as part of her investigation into the theory and practice of artists’ residencies.

Withers’s extremely open Open Call is designed to support her investigation. By loosening the residency application parameters, she looks forward to learning more about what artists (and art writers or researchers) really want from the experience. Artists’ residencies are usually viewed as a revitalising break from the continuum of “normal” practice – but do they deliver this in practice, and why is it so needed and wanted? What does it say about “normal” practice? Do deeper art-historical perspectives shed light on the concept and practice of residencies? What other research methods – economic, sociological, philosophical – might support the enquiry?  

Successful applicants will become part of a small, close-knit community for the residency period, engaging in discussions and other collective activities to be decided by the group: these might include visits to local sites or organisations, or other strategies – Withers looks forward to hearing. There will be opportunities to brainstorm your project and your wider practice 1-to-1 with Withers and the PRAKSIS team. Wherever practical, she and PRAKSIS will support you with your project’s logistics. This might be by brokering introductions in the Oslo area, or helping negotiate access to specific facilities you may need.  

As the residency process unfolds, Withers will invite participants to share reflections on the process and discuss their views on, and experiences of, residencies as a phenomenon. 

SELECTION CRITERIA //

Places will be allocated on the basis of the inventiveness, criticality and practicality of applicants’ individual work plans.

Applicants should be keen to engage in supportive discussion with fellow residents in internal and public events, and to share reflections on their personal plan’s progress (or lack of it: nothing ventured, nothing gained!)

Successful applicants will potentially (but not necessarily) have had have previous experience of doing (or running) some form of residency; and will have interesting views on artists’ residencies as a social, historical and cultural phenomenon.

POTENTIAL RESIDENTS //

Applications are welcomed from artists and art-related practitioners or theorists whose interests and experience are relevant to the residency’s theme. Selected residents will be part of a temporary community of between five and eight local and international participants. The residency will involve group activities, discussion and creative exchange around the residency theme, as well as time for independent working. Selection is based on applicants’ ability both to gain from, and contribute to, the activities of the month-long residency.

PRAKSIS aims to provide an environment for development and professional growth: applications are welcome from practitioners of differing ages and experience levels.

PRAKSIS residencies are structured around the interests and needs of their participants. The particular form that each residency takes is developed collectively through discussion once the group comes together. Group members are encouraged to share their reasons for applying and what they hope to get out of their time with PRAKSIS.

 

WHAT PRAKSIS PROVIDES //

This residency is free of charge and offers comfortable accommodation for non-Oslo based residents in central Oslo. Local residents will continue to live at their usual address. The residency community will regularly come together at the residency studio space, and at organised events and meals.

International participants receive a stipend of 3500 NOK (approximately 350 euros) towards additional costs.

Weekly meals encourage for discussion, debate and friendship. On weekdays PRAKSIS will provide lunch at the working space. Dinners for all residents with invited guests will be held weekly.

Oslo has a vibrant and adventurous arts landscape. PRAKSIS will provide residents with information and links to the city’s cultural scene, informing them about exhibitions, talks, performances and other events. PRAKSIS seeks wherever possible to connect participants with relevant organisations and individuals in Oslo. PRAKSIS residencies aims to introduce the residency community to Oslo creatives in various spheres including among others: curators, writers, and artists.

Activities and events will be mainly held at PRAKSIS’s space in central Oslo. At the start of the residency, participants are invited to make a presentation, informally introducing themselves and their practice to the rest of the group. Other activities include residency related visits, a tour of Oslo's galleries, networking events, discussions and group critiques – some open to the public. A screening/seminar event will address issues surrounding the residency theme.

Residents are responsible for their own travel and any further costs.

Our team is happy to support applications for external grants wherever possible. 

Residents are welcomed to suggest or lead an action, activity or workshop that will clarify and support their own background, interests or methodologies. Participants are also encouraged to contribute towards a shared resource list in advance of the residency, potentially including readings, podcasts, films or other materials for consideration during the residency.

OPEN CALL // PAINTING PROJECT: OUT LOOKING INWARDS

DEVELOPED WITH ROBERT BORDO AND ROBERT HOLYHEAD

OPEN CALL DEADLINE // 10 JANUARY 2019
RESIDENCY DATES // 2 APRIL TO 27 APRIL 2019

For the purposes of this residency, painters Robert Bordo (CA) and Robert Holyhead (UK) have identified three important dimensions of painting as medium: the painting’s materiality, its visual form, and the frameworks, uncertainties and reflections that mark its making.

In Painting Project: Out Looking Inwards Bordo and Holyhead aim to explore the intersections between perceivedly ‘internal’ painterly considerations and the wider world – including the vast virtual expanses of the digital realm. They will ask how painters mediate between the (often, but not always) intimate processes of thinking and making, and the realities of their works’ distribution, reception and interpretation in today’s complex cultural and socio-political environments. In the process, they plan to unpack some of contemporary painting’s dominant critical narratives, asking how they have arisen; whose views and interests they serve; to what extent they reflect the actualities of painters’ concepts and practices; and how they may be influencing future directions for the medium.
 

Places are available for a small group of between five and eight participants: applications are invited from painters and others with a strong interest in the residency’s specific theme and questions. The residency will include scheduled and informal opportunities for critical/theoretical discussion, independent practice or research time, and group activities, including public events addressing the residency’s foci; introductions to Oslo’s art scene and its artists; and expeditions into the superb rural and wild environments surrounding the city.

Robert Bordo will initiate the residency (present from 2 to 21 April), then hand over to Robert Holyhead (present from 15 to 27 April) mid-way through. Their stays will overlap for seven days.

From 2 to 15 April, Robert Bordo proposes that individual studio time be supplemented by in-depth one-to-one conversations and group excursions. Each week there will be between three and five group events investigating the artistic and cultural life of the city, and exploring residency themes while walking in the varied landscapes around the capital. Between 15 and 27 April, Robert Holyhead proposes a series of one-to-one conversations with participants, structured around their specific interests and perspectives in painting. He will devise a flexible daily programme that will allow time for residents to work independently, and to plan ad-hoc group activities and visits.
 

ABOUT ROBERT BORDO AND ROBERT HOLYHEAD // 

Robert Bordo makes thematic paintings that integrate a notion of formalism with a range of personal and theoretical narratives. Since the mid-1980s, his work has been exhibited extensively and internationally in solo and group exhibitions. Highlights include shows at the National Exemplar Gallery, Bortolami Gallery, Alexander and Bonin Gallery, MoMA PS1 and the Brooklyn Museum (all New York); The Suburban, Oak Park, IL, Mummery + Schnelle, London, the Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Basel, and Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Collections in which his work features include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY, the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and the Sheldon Museum of Art, Lincoln, NE. Awards and fellowships he has received include the 2014 Robert de Niro Sr. Painting Prize, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, Canada Council Arts Grant, the Tesuque Foundation Arts Fellowship Award, a MacDowell Colony Fellowship, Ballinglen Fellowship, a Hermitage Retreat Fellowship and a Painting Fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. He has designed sets, costumes and posters for the Mark Morris Dance Company, including designs for Brooklyn Academy of Music’s 2017 revival of Dido and Aeneas. As Associate Professor of Art he led the Cooper Union’s painting program from 1996 until 2017. He lives and works in Columbia County and Brooklyn, NY.

Robert Holyhead studied Fine Art at Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan University, between 1993 and 96, and at the Chelsea School of Art and Design between 1996 and 97.

He was a recipient of the five-year ACME Fire Station live/work residency (2005) and in 2009/10 he was commissioned by the Government Art Collection to produce two site-specific works for the new British Embassy in Brussels. In July 2018, he completed a residency at SoART in Austria. He is represented by Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin and Paris. In 2018, he was selected for one of the Art Foundation’s 20th Anniversary awards. Public collections holding his work include the UK Arts Council Collection, the UK Government Art Collection, Tate and the Centre Georges Pompidou. Recent writing projects include What is Seen: a catalogue essay published by Tate for Patrick Heron’s retrospective at Tate St Ives.

PROGRAM BASED ON THE FOLLOWING CONCEPT

Time is an enormous phenomenon. While researching the different aspects of it, we found there's research showing that the faster you move the slower you age. Does it mean that you can be so busy in life that you forget to age? Aging as an action. There's also the perspective of forgotten time: "Every time a person dies a library is burned down". The scale of time changes depending on age: when you are younger an hour is a larger percent of your life. Also, we found that the traditional Maya calendar states that time is quickening. We are also interested in the perspective of physics. When Einstein talks about the space-time he states that the past and the future exists just as much as the present. What does it mean that time is space-like? Is it possible for us to understand?

AGING AS AN ACTION is facing this various time-research on an artistic level; because we believe that artistic questions are similar to scientific questions. We hope to find new approaches that could change our perception both in the act of creation and during the act of sharing with an audience. The use of performance art allows us to come closer to the point of a direct experience with our bodies. Performance art includes the time aspect by its nature, and with its ephemeral gesture it leads inevitably to knowledge about time. We use the body as a measure instrument. We explore how the body and the space are influencing each other. The relation between them could be understood as time - time in art as a consequence and a condition of a body in a space. Time allows us to move, to let the relationship develop. Thus for us the body is an essential instrument to investigate time. The intensive use of space within the work with the body will offer a relation to the context, and through this, a cultural aspect. What creates the specificity of a space and how can we use it for articulating something?
