Curating Collage Workshop

Share

Eligibility:

A four week, virtual/online workshop in October-November 2020 with the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art

Curating is a vital part of art’s function: a curator creates a bridge between artwork and audience. For artists, this process can be confusing and mysterious. The goal of the Curating Collage Workshop is to equip artists with the tools to curate their own work, to work with curators, and build exhibitions that connect with diverse audiences.

The Curating Collage Workshop is a four-week program designed to train artists as curators. In six virtual meetings over four weeks and through ongoing, online discussion, we will explore the fundamentals of curating, how to create critical context for collage, and various strategies for presenting collage to an audience. Topics will include art writing; gallery and museum issues; documenting artist practice; and working with art professionals.

The Curating Collage Workshop will focus on the role of the exhibition: How do we exhibit collage? What is needed from collage to function in a commercial gallery, art center, or museum? How do we build exhibitions that go beyond the “Cut and Paste” group show model that is prevalent today? What does it mean to be artist-centric, medium-centric, or viewer-centric in the presentation of collage in exhibition? And the workshop will explore ideas around Curation: What is a curator and what is their role? How do we introduce collage to viewers? How do we build an audience for collage and generate enthusiasm and a sense of value for the work? How do we take collage where it needs to go to reach the viewers it is intended to reach?

Participants will curate a collage from the collection of the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art. Texts may be used by the Museum and will be adapted for publication in Kolaj Magazine. Artists in the workshop will curate each other’s work and produce a statement of practice, biography, and critical context for a body of work. This material will be developed into a proposal for an exhibition or book. Proposals will be considered by Kolaj Institute. Artists will leave the workshop with a collection of texts that document and provide critical context for their work.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Curating Collage Workshop is for artists with an established practice and a body of work they would like to bring to an audience through exhibition or publication.

COST

The cost of Curatoring Collage Workshop is $350 USD, however no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package. The Curating Collage Workshop is limited to 10 artists.

Eligibility:

Keywords:

“Contemporary portraiture: Redefining the Figure” is an exhibit centered around the human form. Portraiture has traditionally been utilized as a medium to capture and replicate the likeness or expression of a person, yet this age old art form has evolved tremendously since its origins - from DaVinci’s anatomical drawings to visually striking portraits by contemporary painter Amy Sherald. In this online exhibit, we will be exhibiting a wide range of work including representational and abstract interpretations, as well as work by artists who seek to redefine or challenge the genre of portraiture. 

We encourage artists who work in diverse mediums and styles to apply. The follow mediums are accepted: Painting, drawing, mixed-media, collage, sculpture, digital art, photography.

Our guest curator is Erika b Hess, Artist, Curator & Host of the I Like Your Work podcast! Erika has exhibited her work nationally and juried a wide range of exhibits across the U.S.

APPARITIONS

Share

Eligibility:

This Halloween, we’re asking artists and performers to reimagine the theme of dis-possession and the invisible for a virtual exhibition, APPARITIONS, accepting all mediums. Coming from a diasporic perspective, dis-possession is: separation and disconnect from ancestors, heritage, land, and bodies.

The intention is this exhibit will be a collective sacred space around Halloween, a time that’s centered on ancestral rituals and being open to the intangible. Submit anything you’d like to share in this space, including time-based media, interactive media, performance art, visual and performing arts, poetry readings, and live performances. Also, while this theme is inherently diasporic and personal, the exhibit isn’t limited by a diasporic lens, so don’t let this deter you from submitting!

WHAT TO SUBMIT: 1) artist bio AND 2) documentation and description of your work or a proposal for a live performance.

KEYWORDS: (im)material, sensory, memory, haunting, (dis)embodied, (in)corporeal, vessels, portals, mediators, ancestral, intergenerational, displacement, nostalgia, past, visions

DEADLINE: October 5th by midnight to apparitions2020@gmail.com

Deadline: 
10/05/2020
