The 2019 Christenberry Scholarship

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The late William Christenberry was best known for his evocative photographs, collages, assemblages, paintings, drawings, and sculptures of his birthplace, Hale County, Alabama, and for his haunting vision of the American South.  As a teacher and mentor to hundreds of students at the Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington, DC he was a guiding force for aspiring artists.

To honor his legacy, Washington, DC’s Studio Gallery is offering The Christenberry Fellowship.  Through it, local emerging artists gain their first entry to a professional gallery, where they can join a broad and diverse artistic community and display and market their work alongside that of established artists.

A grant underwriting this fellowship worth $1,000 annually was made possible by Jeff Mace.  It enables the selected fellow to join the artist-run, cooperative for one year (with renewal possibility), without having to pay the normal fellowship member fee and to skip the normal jurying process for Studio Gallery membership.

The goal is to expose new artists to the greater Washington, DC art world and to increase their professional skills by displaying their works within a gallery setting.  Local emerging artists learn to: create a cohesive body of work, refine it with a curator, optimize its exhibition design and lighting selections, and maximize its potential for purchase through marketing,  promotion, and sales techniques.  In addition, by joining an artist-run gallery, they meet and interact with a cross-section of working Washington artists for informal networking and mentoring.

After School – Collective Strategies Open Call

Share

City:

Eligibility:

After School – Collective Strategies is a public programme consisting of a series of talks and workshops, running from May to June 2019, and culminating in a group presentation in the autumn.

A collaborative effort between pic.london and London College of Communication (University of the Arts London), the programme explores collective ways of working both conceptually and in action, and considers them as strategies that can be helpful, especially for early stage artists who often struggle in the extremely challenging period after graduating.

The workshops as part of After School – Collective Strategies are designed for early stage artists to get together under a supportive network and explore collective ways of working. The three workshops are led by and for a wide range of practitioners, from photographers, artists who work in between photography and other media, to curators, researchers and writers who are interested in photography and its expanded forms. 

18 selected participants will work with the same group of peers and the workshop leader over three sessions between May and June, reconvene in September for a curating session, and have a public group presentation together in September/October in London.
