Description of our self-directed residency program
Our Self-Directed Artist in Residency program provides artists (visual artists, writers, creatives and researchers) the ability to work in a supportive community environment of like-minded individuals, to share their expertise and vision, to inspire excellence and create work at the highest level in a nurturing and creative environment. 
The artist is provided with accommodations (at a small fee) at the Caetani Centre. A detached studio in the backyard is available at the added fee of $5/night and suitable for visual artists. 
For artists that are printmakers, ceramics artists and fibre artists, we can facilitate introductions and use of the Vernon Community Art Centre’s shared studio space. Please note this requires some coordinating, so if this is of interest, please get in touch with the Caetani AiR Coordinator before applying to ensure we can accommodate you.
This residency is a multi-faceted experience that will include opportunities for teaching, community outreach, interaction with other artists, and studio care, and, for longer stays, can culminate in a solo exhibition of new work.

Duration of residency
Because this is a self-directed residency, you can choose the length of stay – our minimum stay is 2 weeks and our maximum is 3 months.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
This residency program is open to emerging and established writers, visual artists and any other kind of artist and creative we are able to accommodate. If you’re not sure, please get in touch before applying. Printmakers, ceramics artists and fiber artists are welcome to apply, and depending on the scope of the project and technical requirements, can be accommodated in the shared studio space at the Vernon Community Art Centre.

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. Solo exhibitions include shows at Galerie Max Hetzler, Paris, in 2016; PARTS Project, The Hague, in 2016; Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin, in 2014; PEER, London, in 2012; and Karsten Schubert, London, in 2009, 2010 and 2012. 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.
 

POTENTIAL RESIDENTS //

Applications are welcomed from artists working with painting, as well as practitioners or theorists in other areas 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 intensive and 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 continue to live at their usual address. The residency community regularly comes together at the residency studio space, and at organised events and meals.

International applicants receive a stipend of 3000 NOK (approximately 300 euros) towards additional costs.

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

Oslo has a vibrant and adventurous arts landscape. PRAKSIS provides 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 aim to introduce the residency community to Oslo creatives in various spheres, including curators, writers, and artists.

Activities and events are 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 addresses 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.

RESIDENCY 108 spring session

Share

Category:

Country:

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. 

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians.

The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

City:

The Wassaic Project’s 2019 Summer Residency OPEN CALL is now live!

 

Deadline: January 14, 2019, midnight

 

The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 6 month proposals for our Summer Residency program and Family Residency program (May through October). The Wassaic Residency Program cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers nine artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Residency seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art making practices, while participating in a grass-roots, community-based arts organization.

 

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of professionals in their field, the Wassaic Project Co-Directors and Residency Director. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

 

STUDIOS + FACILITIES + ACCOMMODATIONS

Residents will receive an adaptable raw studio space in a historic livestock barn. All studios are roughly 200-300 square feet. Artists will have 24 hour access to their studio and accommodations which include a private bedroom, shared living room / study, dining room, kitchen, and bath. Residents also have access to workshop facilities as well as the potential for expansion of workshop space and the possibility of working outside. The residency’s workshop facilities include a Wood Shop, Print Shop (silkscreen studio) and a kiln.

 

PROGRAMMING + COMMUNITY SERVICE

We care about our community! Because the Wassaic Project is an artist-run organization focused on strengthening and supporting our community, all residents (besides Education Fellows) are required to work 8 hours per month for Community Service during their time in Wassaic. Residents will work alongside staff members on administrative and physical projects like preparing for exhibitions, installation, de-installation, office organization, etc., and sometimes out in the larger community. This is a cooperative community effort and deepens the connection between our artists and our community. It’s an expression of our values and our priority of community development: artists and the existing community in Wassaic interacting, collaborating, and working together.

 

Two to three times a month, residents are invited to sign up for one-on-one studio visits with creative professionals. All residents are invited to participate in a monthly evening of artist’s talks and presentations, as well as Open Studios towards the end of their residency.

 

FINANCIAL INFO + FELLOWSHIPS:

In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, we are able to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the fee for an individual artist residency is $900 per month per resident, not including additional fees. We may provide up to $300 per month in additional financial assistance based on artist need.

Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you, please do not apply for assistance. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit. Each year the amount of financial assistance we are able to give is determined by our budget, which fluctuates annually.

 

EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP:

Our expanded Education Fellowship program awards three free 2-3 month residencies in exchange for extensive participation in the Wassaic Project’s education programming, which connects the local community to contemporary artists and artistic practices. Recipients of Fall and Spring Education Fellowships will work primarily as Teaching Artists in our Wassaic X Webutuck program, which builds critical thinking and creative problem solving skills through collaborations between emerging artists and public high school students. Recipients of the Summer Education Fellowship will work as Teaching Artists and facilitators in many of our summer programs including Art Scouts, a free summer camp for K-6th graders, and Art Nest, our drop-in making space. All Education Fellows will gain extensive curriculum-building and teaching experience.

The residency guests are encouraged to engage with the local and international researchers and artists at these events.

The residency strives to have an ecologically sustainable material basis. Thus the facilities are simple with mostly natural materials, use of toxic chemicals is not possible etc.

There is a small vegetable garden at the residency where the guests can voluntarily participate in and eat from. For buying food there is a vegetable and fruit shop called Fruteria in the village that the residency collaborates with. There are also organic farmers in the village who, seasonally, have vegetables, fruits and eggs to sell.

The residency is open for families and partners of the guests. Let us know if your pets come along so we can agree and arrange it with the other guests. The residency hosts live in the village and are ready to help with any questions.
