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.
