COM UNIDAD - Virtual Artist Residence OPEN CALL






Correlacion Contemporanea is a self-management project that develops initiatives that question the current system of production, diffusion and research of contemporary art in Peru. Since 2016, Correlación Contemporánea aim is the exchange between students, young and professional artists, encouraging a space for horizontal dialogue in order to stimulate the creation of new possibilities in our artistic environment.

COM UNIDAD is a virtual artistic residence based in Peru that proposes the creation of a collaborative network made up of cultural actors related to peruvian history, art and community practices, from traditional art to contemporary art, through the management of projects, artistic education and archaeological practices in order to generate the continuity of community work from a context of isolation and social distancing that the new normal proposes us.

The work program aims to rethink the development of community art practices through virtual strategies that build a network of community initiatives of creation, management or education based on the collective research of the main cultural, social and geographical axes of Peru.

For this purpose, COM UNIDAD, proposes a research work divided into three cycles, three regions and three months, in which the group made up of residents, collaborators and coordinators will carry out a constant exercise of dialogue, exchange and analysis of the forms of life and social organization that develop in the coast, andean and jungle of Peru.

> Contemporary art as an affective and community tool in rural areas.
> Cultural scene and autonomous management.
> Pre-Hispanic Peruvian culture (Cosmovision, language, rituals, and others).
> Post-pandemic community art.

Tough Art @ Home




The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh (CMP) is dedicated to fostering the talent and innovation of artists as experience makers. The Tough Art Residency Program, that began in 2007, was approaching its 14th year of existence this summer. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the residency had to be canceled for 2020 season.   

In light of that, we began to consider how we might engage our audience while the Museum remains closed. The Museum is always committed to working with artists to present excellent contemporary art to our visitors. Every year artists are invited to work with the museum through a multitude of programs and projects, and the Museum is committed to continuing this mission throughout the closure.  

Thinking about the possibilities during this age of online engagement, the fact that we aren't having in-person residencies, or even open to the public for visitors to interact with our current art installations, we were inspired to find a way to connect artists with our audience, and vice versa.  

This has prompted a call-for-artists who are interested in making their work accessible to CMP’s audience. The challenge is for artists to create an art making activity related in some way to their artwork/process that would inspire a do-it-yourself project for people to create wherever they may be.  


Residency Goals:

  • Create a do-it-yourself (D.I.Y.) art making project for people to do, wherever they may be, that relates to and is inspired by the artist’s work 
  • Work collaboratively with Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh staff to create and develop an engaging artmaking activity that continues the Museum’s mission during closure 
  • Give artists a platform on CMP’s website and social media platforms to share their work and reach a potentially new audience, which in turn, provides new avenues of art exploration for the Museum. 


The residency offers a $200 artist stipend, that will be awarded to 5 artists. 

Artists will be asked to work with CMP staff during the timeframe of late-September 2020 through October 2020, online, to produce a final product that will be disseminated to CMP networks beginning November 2020. This will be available through CMP’s web presence (websites, social media platforms, etc.) as a digital download/link.  

Deadline & Notification:

Applications must be received by 11:59 pm on September 6, 2020. Selected Artists will be announced September 18th, 2020. 

If Selected:

Artists will work with the project manager to produce:  

Image of example of project 

Visual representation of materials needed for creation 

Step-by-step instructions (can be drawn images, pictures, video, etc.) for the D.I.Y. art making project

*1-3 days of work is estimated for this residency.
