Open Call: Six Minutes Past Nine (9’6”) Pilot Digital Residency Program

Category:

Country:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Call for submissions for a virtual residency opportunity centered around moving-image and third space. 

The moving image mimics and relays the accelerated motion of today’s world. It has the potential to not only mirror the present moment, but to reconstitute experience into the digital and the metamorphic. The moving image can look into the future, imagine and reify the movement of signs and symbols existent in our imaginations of what is to come.

 

Closing date for applications: 16th May 2022 5pm

Residency period: 30th May 2022 - 22nd July 2022 (With possibility to extend)

 

Open call:

We’re inviting 1 or more artists or collaborative groups who work with moving image to submit their interest in developing work (new or already created) within an open and experimental digital environment as part of Six Minute Past Nine’s exciting 8-week pilot residency.

The work itself does not need to be digitally or technologically focused but we are looking for submissions with a focus of using the space in interesting and experimental ways.

The selected artist or group will receive a digital residency space within the New Art City platform, in which they are free to experiment and explore the use of the space in presenting moving image practices. 

The artist or group’s work will be promoted on Six Minutes Past Nine channels and will have the opportunity to publish and promote the final virtual residency space. 

As part of the residency program, Six Minutes Past Nine will invite you to a symposium in the UK in 2022, which will include talks, discussions and screenings centered around moving image and third space opportunities.

Please note that the selected artist or group will not be expected to engage with the residency space for a specific number of hours - it is up to you how you use the space. We are looking for individuals who are passionate about their practice and who will be excited by the opportunity to work within an expansive digital platform as well as helping us to develop and understand artist support needs.

Visual Arts Thematic Residency | Plastic - Online 2021

Category:

Eligibility:

Overview
Plastic is everywhere, and is increasingly an object of environmental concern. However, it also provides the basis of our contemporary infrastructures including buildings, clothing, and communications networks. Despite the necessary campaigns for the elimination of single-use plastics, it is a material that cannot be easily dismissed. Plastic is one of the most intimate manifestations of our connections with oil, as it is used in everything from baby bottles to sex toys. It is also one of the foremost materials used in the production of contemporary art, from molds to vinyl to paints.  

This residency explores how we might reconfigure our relations to plastic, seeing it as a material of potential connection, of resilience, of queer productivity without denying its immediate and devastating environmental consequences. What might happen if we thought of plastic as incredibly valuable material, rather than as immanently expendable? We invite makers and thinkers to reimagine their relations with this now fundamental material, to explore processes of recycling and reconstituting, and to pay attention to the uneven materialities of plastic and its affordances as an artistic material.

What does the program offer?
This online program will provide a discursive forum for visual artists, curators, and other cultural producers to explore plastic in relation to their work, communities, geographic locations, and current societal conversations. Participants will form an online community of peers; share work with each other and continue work already in progress; partake in online studio visits; participate in conversations, presentations, and workshops; and engage with faculty and each other to develop ideas, insights, and connections that can be applied to the theoretical and practical development of their practice.  Please see the Itinerary section for an approximation of the program schedule. 

What length of residency is available?
This program requires a dedicated commitment over a period of 3 weeks with the understanding that absence from weekly synchronous activities will be minimal and cannot be made up. 

Who should apply?
This residency is open to visual artists, 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 should demonstrate a history of exhibitions, publications, and projects. Collectives of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

***Financial Aid up to 100% available.

Program Dates: July 12 - 30, 2021
