Currier Museum Artist-in-Residence

Share

Category:

Country:

Eligibility:

The Currier Museum of Art invites applications for the second annual open call for its Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program, awarding up to two residencies between fall 2022 and spring 2023. This program will provide support for selected self-identified emerging artists or artist groups (of up to three people) focused on social practice. Due to the flexible nature of this program, these residencies can be for a period of 6-12 weeks between mid-October 2022 and mid-March 2023. The AIR program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting audiences with art and creative thinking. This program deepens the mission through an open call to social practice artists who share the goal of impacting people through the transformative power of art. Applications are open until December 1, 2021.

The Currier Museum welcomes and encourages proposals from Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) as well as members of the LGBTQI community. The museum does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.

Applicants must demonstrate a history of social engagement in their artmaking practice and production. Successful applicants will develop an innovative project with tangible outcomes that align with the tenets of their own practice, the mission of the museum, and the needs of the community partner(s) with whom they will collaborate. Artists and small collectives (no more than 3 people) working in any media are eligible to apply.

Understanding that partnerships evolve throughout the relationship between artist and organization, we recognize the need for flexibility. Proposals do not need to include fully formed projects; rather, we invite artists to describe the type of issues they plan to address, the impact their previous projects have had, and their working styles. Examples of potential projects should be included, as well as a consideration of how your project could be achieved under ongoing physical distancing guidelines. Likewise, applicants may identify specific organizations or communities with whom they are interested in working, or overall issues and themes they would like to address. Currier Museum staff will contact community partners to assess feasibility. We ask that applicants do not contact potential community partners before being selected.

About the Currier Museum of Art
Focused on Art. Centered in Community. Committed to Inspire.
The Currier Museum of Art is dedicated to connecting people to art. An internationally renowned art museum located in Manchester, New Hampshire, the Currier Museum displays major works from the Renaissance to today, with core strengths in European, American, and contemporary art. The museum is the only in the world with two publicly accessible houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in its collection. The museum operates an active community art school which offers classes year-round. The museum’s innovative social art programs address critical issues faced by the region. For example, The Art of Hope is the first museum-led program for families affected by substance-use disorder, and combines looking, discussion, and artmaking.

About Manchester, New Hampshire
With more than 114,500 residents, Manchester is northern New England’s largest city and among its most ethnically and racially diverse (newhampshire.hometownlocator.com, July 2021). Manchester has a rich history in textile manufacturing. Today it is multi-industry, home to high-tech, communications, financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing firms. The city is home to both public and private universities, with an estimated 70+ languages spoken in the public school system (manchesternh.gov). Manchester has been working to overcome significant challenges in its community for years: one out of every 6.7 residents of Manchester live in poverty, with the highest rates concentrated within the center urban neighborhoods, contributing to roughly 39% of the state’s overall homeless (Lessard, Jan. 2021). The city has been an epicenter of the ongoing national opioid crisis and in turn has developed numerous initiatives to address the issue.Individual artists or collectives of up to three people are eligible to apply.

The Currier Museum supports resident artists with a stipend of $1,000 per week, travel allowance up to $500, materials support, and housing in a fully furnished home. In many cases, resident artists may be able to have spouses/children accompany them. Service animals are welcome.  

-Artists and collectives working in any media are eligible to apply.
-Artists must be able to commit to at least six continuous weeks in residence during mid-October 2022 to mid-March 2023. The applicant must list their preferred residency period in their application.
-The selected artist must be able to demonstrate they are legally authorized to work in the U.S. We are unable to sponsor visas at this time.

Sections will be made in January 2022 by a panel comprised of Currier Museum staff from the curatorial and community outreach departments as well as an outside juror.

The panel of judges will evaluate the entirety of the application equally: the images of previous work and community outreach as well as the statement of interest. The applications will also be evaluated according to viable partnerships that the Currier Museum is able to facilitate with community organizations which address an area of need in the Manchester community. Finalists will be invited for an interview via video conferencing. Due to the large number of applicants, we will only contact those that will be taking part in the interview process. The Currier Museum reserves the right to award 0-2 residencies during this application period.

October 1, 2021 applications open
December 1, 2021 applications close
December 2021/January 2022, finalist interviews
January 31, 2021 Residencies awarded (selected artist(s) have 2 weeks to accept)

Application deadline: 

Wednesday 28th July 6pm

Hypha Studios & Becontree Forever are looking for a creative practitioner to live in & make use of this house to develop their practice, explore new ideas or create a new project. The space is provided for free* along with an artist fee & small grant towards your public event or community engagement.

 

You are welcome to bring family members with you on your residency & to treat the house as your home for the duration. You may wish to use one of the bedrooms as a studio, or create work within and around the whole building. *we provide the space for free but you have to put down a deposit which you get back when you leave the property on time and in good condition We welcome your inventiveness in your use of the space & how it can support you develop your practice.

 

Perhaps you want to make a part studio / part gallery, or develop a horticulture-related project in the garden, maybe you want to turn a room into a collaborative workshop, or develop a theatrical performance. You may want to make work about the entire estate, or just a tiny physical detail of the house’s fabric.

 

All we ask is that you consider the following:

A site-responsive proposal though we encourage a broad interpretation of what “site” is to you & could include the architecture, social history, garden, archive or more

Community involvement which can be from any local community you identify & can be involved in your research, development, or public event

Your public event proposal as a critical element of your application, please give creative consideration  to this, who it will be for, & how it weaves with your creative practice

 

The Becontree Estate, in the borough of Barking & Dagenham, was the largest public housing estate in the world when it was constructed between 1921 & 1935. In total, it is over 26,000 homes to a ‘garden city’ model. Your work on this residency could consider the radical roots of the estate, seek to be part of the dialogue with existing communities, or help inform its future story.

 

BECONTREE FOREVER:

Becontree Forever is a year-long program of art, architecture & new infrastructure to mark 100 years of the Becontree Estate. It is led by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, in collaboration with residents and local partners such as the schools on the estate, Arc Theatre, Barking & Dagenham Youth Dance, East End Women’s Museum, Girls Like Us, Green Shoes Arts, Love Music Hate Racism, Studio 3 Arts, Soul and Sound & The White House, with national partners such as Create London, EFG London Jazz Festival, Focal Point Gallery, Serpentine Galleries & the Wellcome Trust.

 

We are committed to communities and culture.

The council have allocated this house as a space for the integration of culture into the estate for the duration of the Becontree Forever centenary celebrations, to further understanding of the architecture and histories of the estate, and as a central space for local communities to participate in culture. It has been used by other artists, and after the completion of these Hypha Studios residencies the house will be refurbished and returned to the local housing stock in Autumn 2021.

Public engagement is critical to the mission of this project and we ask you to deeply consider how you will involve local residents, schools or other groups within the creation of your work or in the public events. Support will be available to help you connect to local communities as your idea requires in order to best celebrate the estate’s history and community’s future through culture.
