CALL TO ARTISTS

Collage as Street Art: Letting the Art Find Its Own Audience

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

Deadline to apply: 20 June 2021

In this 4-week, project-driven collage residency, artists will delve into the history, methods and major artists of the “street art” movement with a particular emphasis on collage. Participants will endeavor to put some of those methods into practice, taking their collage art out into the streets. Documenting the entire process will be integral to the project, as the resulting work will be published in a Kolaj Street Krewe book to be announced at a later date.

Leading the residency is Lance Rothstein, aka FANCLUB 13, who has been creating street art for over 20 years in over 25 US cities and 31 European cities. Rothstein writes, “I consider my work to be a bit like archaeology, collecting the discarded items from people’s everyday lives and rearranging them in new relationships. Then I usually send them back out to the streets in this new form, with a new purpose. I look forward to continuing my personal scavenger hunt, finding little trashy treasures and combining them into intricate relationships for people to come across on the streets.”

Each week, collage artists will join in an online session where we’ll highlight the work and methods of several established artists. We’ll discuss new techniques and strategies, with topics such as Placement, Materials, Visibility, Message, and Legality. Each week, we will challenge participants to get their work out onto the streets, document the process, and share it with the group the following week for discussion and critique. During the residency, at least one additional guest Street Artist will discuss their methods and experiences with the group.

Some of the concepts addressed during the residency include: What is Collage and what isn’t Collage? What are your artistic goals? How can Street Art add to your artistic process? Who is your audience? How/Why/Where should it be seen? Where should you put it to achieve the audience you want? Do you want to remain anonymous? How is this affecting your own consideration of the artworks? How does Street Art differ from more traditional forms of art exhibition? Letting go of your artwork and letting the artwork find its own audience.

Graphic/Street Art for Oxford City Centre Window

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Makespace Oxford is looking for a bold street or graphic artist to transform a street facing window into an exciting and engaging urban art piece.

What the space will be: The Community Works will be a dynamic community action hub located in the Oxford city centre for social enterprises and progressive organisations. 

Project Background: Makespace Oxford transforms empty and underused  buildings into dynamic hubs for community action, creativity and social change. They support socially conscious organisations to build a community by providing  affordable space to work and collaborate.

Tone: Exciting, Progressive, Bold, Local, Accessible, Profound, Inviting, Provocative

The world has changed a lot this year. Our sense of normality has been challenged. We’ve become more aware of our need for connection and community and through this have seen creative and generous altruism and brilliant grassroots organising in reaction to these unique challenges. We’re looking for an artist who can express their vision while addressing these current affairs and championing community action, creativity and social change in a unique, even provocative way. (Some of our primary stakeholders are Oxford University Colleges and the Oxford City Council so it is important to make sure that the piece does not offend.) 

The window should be bold and attention grabbing, get people from across the street at the train station interested in the space and inspire engagement and/or participatory action from passers by. They should be excited that the space is being developed, and to be inquisitive enough to look us up online. The piece does not need to be explicitly about Makespace or The Community Works but its theme needs to fit alongside what we do – using empty space in Oxford, providing affordable space for purpose driven organisations, creating space for community, and encouraging civic discourse. 

FULL SPEC: 

The piece should cover the windows in such a way that the public cannot see into the space behind from walking by, as there will be construction work happening behind the windows that we want to obscure. It does not have to cover the whole window, but should cover at least half to two thirds of the window from the bottom up.

There are four adjacent square windows which are all 1980mm x 1880mm

Media choice is up to the artist, however, the piece will be on display for only 3-6 months, depending on the renovation schedule for the ground floor space. It should be easily removable without damage to the windows or fascia.

Prize summary: 
£800
Prizes Details: 

Budget for this project is £800, including design and execution. 

Deadline: 
10/31/2020
