Poetry, Politics, and Embodiment | Literary Arts Thematic

Share

Category:

Theme:

Country:

City:

Overview

If, as is understood by the faculty, much of the anxiety about contemporary poetry can be described as an identity crisis — if it is a struggle between the old and the new cast as one having to do with voice, theme, and tradition — then who can inherit the future of poetry is cut along gendered and racialized lines.

We begin from the supposition that poetry is a radical refutation of the world-as-it-is, and as such, is and has been the province of minoritized peoples.

We will spend two weeks thinking together about poetry as a vehicle of liberation and protest; about subjectivity and embodiment as poetry’s context; and about how race, gender, class, sexuality, and ability pressurize aesthetic categories.

What does the program offer?

This residency offers space to think, theorize, and write about the grammatical; about the "I" and "we" of poems; about breaking from inheritance and tradition in the name of justice, revenge, and revolution for the marginalized. Emphasis will be placed on witness and testimony as well as politics and cultural criticism as key modalities of today’s poetic impulse. 

We will concentrate as much on the writing of poems as the theoretical foundation that makes the writing possible in the first place. Think Dionne Brand’s left-handed pages in The Blue Clerk. Think the statues of the architects of colonialism doused in red paint. Think of a poetry reading on the rez where everyone is a poet and nothing feeds into the engines of publicity.

Who should apply? 

Poets who are exploring themes of self and subjectivity in their writing are encouraged to apply. This program is an ideal fit for poets who are exploring identity; the grammar of identity, gender, race, class, sexuality, and ability; the individual and collective; contemporary poetry; poetry as protest and activism; and the effects of state-sanctioned oppression on art. 

Accepted applicants will receive a reading list in advance of the program and may be asked to submit a sample of pages/poems from their works in progress. These details will be shared with accepted applicants shortly after the adjudication and confirmation process has been completed.  

Application Deadline: January 08, 2020
Dates: April 06 - April 18, 2020

Financial Aid up to approximately 50% is available for this program.

Object as Catalyst | Visual Arts Thematic

Share

Category:

Country:

City:

Overview

Form, function, and artisanship create points of access to art objects that are immediate, transferrable, and universal. However, art is also an impetus for activating the liminal space between artists and viewers, individuals, and communities through narrative, memory, and social engagement.  

In this residency, explore making within a methodology of reciprocity, care, and performative and participatory process. From the personal moments of creation to the hidden moments of reward to the visible moments that arise through interaction and relationships, discover how art exposes the most social yet private actions. 

Object as Catalyst asks how sculpture, ceramics, and other object-based practices might shift from what they physically represent to the effects and experiences they produce. In this program, engage in the history and discourse of performative process, social sculpture, object-hood, labour, material culture, and relational practice. 

What does the program offer?

Thematic residencies offer a structured program where visual artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, artists, and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is open to visual artists, particularly those working in ceramics and sculpture, as well as curators and academics. Applicants should have completed formal training in visual arts or a field related to this program at the post-secondary level, and demonstrates a history of exhibitions, publications, and projects. Collectives of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

Application Deadline: January 22, 2020
Dates: June 01 - July 03, 2020

*Financial Aid up to 100% is available to cover tuition (meal plans and accommodations are not eligible)

Three studios have pianos, three can accommodate writers, and two are designed with storage, lighting, and flexible space to accommodate visual artists. The studios appeal to a variety of disciplines; some are large enough to accommodate collaborative projects.

Although all studios are equipped with kitchenettes, artists do not live in their studios; on-site accommodation and meal plans are provided separately. 

Leighton Artists Studio stays are self-directed residencies with little access to facilities outside of the studios. Access to limited technical support, equipment, and additional facilities may be available on a rental basis.
