Drawing Research Residency

Presented in partnership between L’AiR ARTS at FIAP PARIS and DRAWinternational, Caylus, France

The invisible realm of possibility 

Two-part residency program:
Part I - Creative Practice in a medieval town of Caylus
Part II - Contextual Research and Exhibition in Paris
Application deadline: January 4, 2019

The project will focus upon notions of intention and the physical act of drawing as it arrives as a vectorial force on a material surface. One could say, an infrastructure from where other possibilities collide, from common habitual behaviours toward the realm of the unknown. 

A conscious reflective engagement with the world felt through our our skin, flesh and bones is a spatial process of perception directed upon an environment of mass, volume and depth. A world encountered by the whole human interactive corporeal sensorium through which we become inexorably a part. As such, there can be no gap between biology and society as we move in and around the world, finding out that we are made of the same fundamental stuff as everything else. From this perspective our bodies are situated ecologically, in a role which is not simply ‘subjective’ but social and of nature itself. It is a body for others as it exists in its tension between agencies of power and systems of resistance, what is and what is in the becoming. 

To trust oneself and to be honest in a creative act, which takes cognisance of the world around can only help foster an initial space of meaningful conscious engagement. A continued focus and sense of purpose, with a loss of self, can only lead to a cyclical state of pre-reflective awareness. It is the doors of realisation and insight that resides in the depths of a primordial, intercorporeal, ‘chiasmic’ intertwining of truths, a radical space to be. 

As David Abram has stated:

. .. meaning sprouts in the very depths of the sensory world, in the heat of meeting, encounter, participation. (Abram, 1997,p75)

CPW’s photography-based Artist-In-Residence Program was created to expand the dialogue around diversity, race, identity and social justice, and to provide concrete opportunities for US-based artists, scholars and curators of color, who have often been under-represented in general programs. Artists-in-Residence (AIRs) are given access to facilities and financial, critical, and technical support. The drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.

WOODSTOCK AIR encourages participants to pursue creative risk-taking in an environment rich in cultural resources. Working without distraction or interruption, participants focus intensely on their own work, continue works in progress, set goals for the future, and break new ground. Each year CPW offers seven studio residencies and one residency for a critic/scholar/curator. WOODSTOCK AI­R marks the first residency experience of over 65 percent of its participants. All proposals are welcomed.

WOODSTOCK AIR was listed among the top 20 residency programs in the U.S. by Artinfo and one of the top residencies for photographers in the world by Format Magazine.

Residencies include:

-four to six week creative work time without interruptions

-accommodations with large studio at the Artist House located within walking distance from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district

Soiltary Desert Retreat in Nevada

Share

Category:

Country:

Deadline 1-27-19

Montello Foundation is a foundation dedicated to support artists who foster our understanding of nature, its fragility and our need to protect it.

The Montello Foundation provides a solitary retreat where artists can experience the vastness of a desert landscape from a safe building, a “base camp,” a unique space for inspiration and creation, a place that provides a shield from distractions in the solitude of the desert.

A building designed with a large shading roof under which there are two distinct spaces: one space for the bodily needs: eating; sleeping; washing, and a stove for the cold desert nights, and a second space for work: for writing; painting; drawing; studying, a space for the first materializations of new ideas.

There is no cost for this program. Artists must cover travel and living expenses.
