CALL TO ARTISTS: Collage Artist Residency: Money Money

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in June 2021

Deadline to apply: May 26, 2021

During this project-driven artist residency, collage artists work together to create a series of collages that illustrate Eleanor H. Porter’s 1918 novel, Oh, Money! Money!. The result will be a book published by Kolaj Institute. The residency is being done in conjunction with “The Money $how” at Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The book will be released at an event in July.

“The Money $how” is co-curated by Frank Juarez, the publisher of Artdose Magazine, and Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine. A tour of late-stage capitalism, each artist in the exhibition uses collage to unpack ideas about money and its influence on our culture. The curators start from the premise that money is an idea that shapes contemporary life and present works that invite viewers to consider cash, labor, and capital. In addition to the exhibition, Kolaj Institute is publishing the book, The Money $how: Cash, Labor, Capitalism, & Collage, in which Kadour juxtaposes contemporary artwork against fragments of American history and literature as a way of showing how collage can help us deconstruct culture and understand the world differently. 

In Eleanor H. Porter’s 1918 novel, Oh, Money! Money!, a Chicago multi-millionaire struggles to decide to whom he should leave his money. As an eccentric experiment, he schemes to give his three distant cousins one hundred thousand dollars each to see how they handle the windfall. The book is a time capsule of early 20th century American life with a strong focus on the lives of women and observations about material culture and communities before the rampant consumerism of the 1920s and the Great Depression. In telling this story, Porter gives us a look at the role of and attitudes about money that remain relevant today. The book raises important questions about the role of money in our lives: What good is money? Is money cruel? How should one handle money? How does money change us?

The residency will unfold on four Saturdays where artists will convene in three-hour sessions. Artists will discuss the themes raised in Porter’s novel, hear from guest speakers, and collage together. Artists will take a virtual tour of “The Money $how” and receive a copy of the companion book. The group will collectively produce a series of twenty-six collages, one for each of the chapters in Porter’s novel.

Christopher Kurts will serve as art director for this project, lead collage making sessions, and facilitate the collaboration. Heather Ryan Kelley will speak about “The Midden Heap Project” in which she made a collage response to each page of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. Jeanna Penn will speak about how she uses collage to interpret historical material including her project “Souls of Black Folk” collage series inspired by W.E.B. DuBois’ seminal book where he sets out to “have briefly sketched…with loving emphasis and deeper detail, that men may listen to the striving in the souls of black folk.” Nancy Bernardo will speak about collage as illustration, the visual essay she contributed to the book Deconstructing Brad Pitt, and how collage artists can engage with the marketplace for illustration. Ric Kasini Kadour will present a theoretical overview of collage, share “The Money $how” exhibition, and facilitate the discussion of Porter’s book.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Collage Artist Residencies are intended for self-motivated artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop their practice by exploring a topic or working method and collaborating with others to produce a final product. Residencies are open to any artist over the age of 21 from anywhere in the world. 

COST

The cost of the residency is $500 per artist; however, no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package.

My Beautiful Foot

Eligibility:

Listing for a friend:

Hello, fellow creatives! My name is Nora Novak and I’m a video editor by day and DIY filmmaker, writer, and artist by night. I’ve recently completed a passion project, the writing of a short story called “Beautiful Foot" that I’m ready to turn into a picture book! After exploring avenues of publication, I’ve decided to self-publish. While I love art and have a few of my own skills, the idea of illustrating an entire book does not bring me joy. What WOULD bring me joy is to collaborate with other artists to help bring the story to life. 

I’m looking for around 20 artists to illustrate one scene each, with all collaborators receiving credit in the book. Since I’m just one person and not independently wealthy, my desire is to find artists willing to donate their work. However, I understand the value of time, energy, and talent, so I’ve scraped together a budget that would allow me to pay a modest $50 flat fee per artist. Whether you choose to donate your work or to accept the commission, my biggest hope is that the story speaks to you and inspires you in some way.

“Beautiful Foot” is a fable about an innocent foot who is plucked from the countryside and whisked to the city to become a star and the tragic consequences that follow. I wrote it for adults, but I’ve been told it can serve as a children’s book. (I say it depends on the child, as the theme is a bit dark. But you may judge for yourself.)

I’m accepting submissions through June 25, 2020. Please send me your online portfolio or photos of your pieces along with a short statement about yourself and what draws you to this project. You don’t have to be an established artist or even very experienced. I just want to know a little about you, your aesthetic, and that you can deliver high-quality digital files of your finished work. There is no limit to what media you use; paint, ink, digital, collage, diorama, whatever—they’re all exciting to me.

If you are selected, I’ll send you the story and indicate which scene I’d like you to illustrate along with applicable specs and requirements. You will have four weeks to complete your artwork and will be paid upon delivery (unless, of course, you choose to donate).

Thanks so much for reading. I’m very excited about sharing my story and your art with the world and I look forward to seeing your submissions!

Juror:

David Potthast is an artist, designer, and educator; he observes & documents such things. He is a sculptor studied in design & computer science. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and an MA and MFA from Fontbonne University. He has shown locally the past few years, but has works in private collections both nationally and internationally.

 

His approach to art and design is aligned with the tenets of the Bauhaus. Mainly that work can be both intellectually controlled and emotionally expressive. His works turn the digital languages and logic in visual pattern, often reacting to materials, but always steeped in concept. Whether entertaining chaos theory, game theory, time, or even ideas from his own or other’s fictional worlds, he seeks to find meaning in the existence and persistence of objects and experiences. His works even go so far as to inhabit far ancient worlds, yet appear as functional or ritualistic devices. He creates his own fictional companies as identity studies, too; going so far as to build and publish websites for them.

 

He often works under the name dpstudiolab as an expression of his work being a bit of art and a bit of experiment. This includes documenting his works in ways that align with experimental research and study.  His works don’t just explore digital existence, but also reaction to materials such as steel, concrete, plaster, glass, found objects. The boundary between the virtual and the actual is blurred for him, but he explores both realms.

 

In the end: David Potthast/dpstudiolab makes things he sees in his imagination, even it requires stretching the laws of time and space to make it in what passes for reality these days.
