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)

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE OPEN CALL: Food, futures & biodiversity

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

In this shifting world, communities return to the land, seek refuge in the environment and sustenance in nature, and Art Gene takes up residence on our outside project space, Allotment Soup.

Extreme Views – Food, futures & biodiversity will create an engaged art and environmental experience in the landscape.

Residency period 1 - 14th November 2021. 

Fee £2,400 for 12 days in residence. 

Artists are invited to Barrow-in-Furness for an intensive, collaborative 2 week residency to develop an ‘exhibition in the outdoors’, engaging with locals, creating interventions, provocations, and working with and around challenging issues for these extreme times.

In the final weekend the artists as guides will welcome the local community, to share the experience and add to the conversation, in a programme of open free events. 

The 2 week residency coincides with COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference hosted in Glasgow. We hope artists will respond to this occasion, to investigate how artists can engage with, and affect meaningful and urgent change in how we use and relate to our climate.

The residency will extend Art Gene’s current programme Extreme Views, to explore the pressing issues impacting on local people, place and biodiversity as we step out into the new normal.

As Lead Artist in Residence, Owen Griffiths, alongside Art Gene’s Artist/Directors Maddi Nicholson & Stuart Bastik, will support the 3 Artists in Residence throughout. Owen has been Extreme Views Artist in Residence with Art Gene since 2019, creating the online Extreme Views: Armchair Walks, and digital green space mapping.
