LUMINOUS BODIES

Programmed Art Residency
Artscape Gibraltar Point, Toronto Island, Canada
LuminousBodies.com

Residency Dates: July 2-15, 2019
Extended Deadline: March 15, 2019

Luminous Bodies is a two-week residency to create artworks that shed new light on the human body. Its objective is to challenge “normativity” and Otherness. Its goal is to reinvent and re-present the body in most inclusive and diverse ways. Resident artist talks, gallery tours, visual and textual references, guest artist talks, and regular critiques (individual with Facilitator and group critiques) help uncover how our bodies are culturally and aesthetically constructed, displayed and controlled. Residents work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that reinvent the body through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance, movement, sound art, media art, etc. There will be a closing exhibition of artworks created during the residency (if preferred, artists may show in open studio fashion). The essence of Luminous Bodies is about bringing to light heterogeneous bodies. It welcomes people in all walks of life into a creative journey of critical innovation and self-discovery. People with disabilities, people of colour and diverse gender identifications are encouraged to apply.

Artscape Gibraltar Point is an artist retreat nestled against the magnificent natural backdrop of Toronto Island. It offers a distraction-free environment to focus on art creation, and a rich potential for the creation of corporeal artworks amongst its blue-flag beaches (one of them being clothing optional) and natural surroundings of Lake Ontario, forests and gardens filled with flowers, fruit and vegetables. On the island, there are tiny quaint homes, a historic lighthouse, a hobby farm and antique carnival grounds. Cozy up in a furnished studio and bedroom, and enjoy amenities such as a fully equipped common kitchen, shared bathrooms, laundry facilities and wireless Internet. AGP is a barrier free and inclusive environment. The Toronto city core is just a 15-minute ferry ride away.

NAKED STATE

Programmed Art Residency
Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park, Canada
NakedState.ca

Residency Dates: August 15-25, 2019
Extended Deadline: ongoing until filled

Naked State is a 10-day residency to create artworks that explore the nude human body in context of nature, culture and art. For the duration of the residency, the artists and residency Facilitator live as *naturists (in the nude) within the naturist community of Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park to create works that explore questions such as: What is nudity? Does stripping away clothing rid us of class, gender, and personal expression?; Do the connections between our bodies and the land change when nude? Is nudity always sexual? What is the role of the nude in historical and contemporary art?; Is an animal with fur naked? Is it possible to be civil in the nude?; Is there a natural state for human being?

Residents artists work individually or collaboratively to create artworks that explore these questions through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance art, movement, sound art, media art, etc. Naked State welcomes people in all walks of life into a creative journey of criticality thinking and self-discovery. Indigenous, people with disabilities, people of colour and diverse gender identifications are encouraged to apply. 

This programmed residency is a production of Arts Unfold, offering facilitation by multimedia artist Teresa Ascencao, a seminar on naturism with *Stéphane Deschênes, guest visits by artists and members of the Bare Oaks naturist community, and plenty of studio time. Critiques of residents’ works occur on a regular basis, individually with the Facilitator and through group discussions. Resident artists are encouraged to socialize and integrate with the Bare Oaks community at campfires, swimming, sharing meals, and through the creation of artworks. The Bare Oaks community will be invited to the introductory resident artist talks, guest seminar with Stéphane, and scheduled studio visits with artists (who wish to participate). The closing event will be open to members of Bare Oaks and the public.

Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park is a year-round naturist park near Toronto in Canada, where individuals and families experience traditional naturist values in a modern setting. It is nestled among the natural wilderness of the Ontario Greenbelt and Oak Ridges Moraine. Its varied landscape includes open spaces, forests, ponds, streams and a small lake. Amenities include a store, restaurant, sun deck, TV and sports lounge, outdoor pool, whirlpool, saunas, exercise room, laundromat, and a small common kitchen with microwave and fridge. Wireless Internet can be purchased at the front desk. The Outback common room (and possibly a marquis tent and yurt) will be dedicated as a large shared studio space for the duration of the residency. There is some wheel chair accessibility. Bare Oaks is located in East Gwillimbury, under an hour north-east of Toronto. For more information visit BareOaks.ca.

Naturism is the practice of complete nudity in a social setting. Though nudity is the most obvious aspect of naturism, it is simply a tool to reach closer to a natural state. The purpose of naturism is to promote wholesomeness and stability of the human body, mind, and spirit. It also promotes wellbeing through complete contact of the body with the natural elements.

International and Transdisciplinary Art Residency in a cultural heritage village in Sardinia, Italy.

31st May – 24 June 2019 – IVYnode is organizing the 2nd Art Residency Program with the theme “Su Bixinau”, the neighbourhood, in Nurri, a small village in the center of Sardinia.

Thanks to the precious collaboration with Fondazione Sciola, Local Municipality of Nurri, Proloco di Nurri and Archeogeo this 2nd Art Residency will include an Exhibition in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri, a Symposium during the Festival Sant’Arte in San Sperate, and a 2nd Exhibition in San Sperate curated by Fondazione Sciola.

About
The theme of the Art Residency is ‘Su Bixinau’, Sardinian for ‘the neighbourhood’.

The character of the Residency is Transdisciplinary and it is open to artists, researchers, writers or everyone who wish to be integrated in an unique place where is still possible to appreciate authentic aspects.

The participants will live in houses in the village of Nurri, in a calm environment rich in history and beautiful landscapes. During the program the artists will have the possibility to work and exhibit in the Monastery of Santa Rosa  in Nurri, dated XVII century, a perfect surrounding for side specific work and temporary installations. The participants will have the possibility to keep in touch with locals and artisans, who still preserve an ancient knowledge of old techniques that are risking to disappear. Thanks to the professionalism of Archeogeo, the artists can visit archaeological settle, exploring the territory and connecting with the nature, which can also be inspiring for landart projects.

If your art practice embraces community interaction or collaboration in some way, if you like cultural exchange programs and discovering local traditions, if you are interrested in temporary public art or site specific installation, sustainability or other models of art as social practice, this is the residency for you.

The artists participating in the Art Residency in Nurri will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Symposium “Su Bixinau” during the Festival Sant’Arte, guests for 3 days of the Fondazione Sciola, to exhibit their work first in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri and then in San Sperate, during a 2nd exhibition curated by Fondazione Sciola.

REAKTOR Potenziale

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The REAKTOR’s cross-disciplinary programme features works that are imbued with the spirit of the times. Indeed, what is still considered experimental today may well one day be perceived as timelessly permanent. That is particularly true of contemporary art. The REAKTOR’s open call is designed to seek out that very potential in the visual arts, hence the title Potenziale. Particular emphasis is to be placed on space-defining art for the REAKTOR’s architectural core, i.e. its main hall.

The chosen artists will be invited to flesh out and implement their submitted concept as part of a fortnight’s residency and then showcase it to the public as part of an exhibition.

The application is a single-stage process. A description, sketches, and an enclosed portfolio of earlier works are sufficient. The REAKTOR team will be on hand to assist with the finalisation and support the implementation. A budget of up to EUR 3,500.00 is available for the exhibition production, together with practical assistance from the REAKTOR’s technical team.

Selection criteria:

  • Art experience | The Open Call is looking for works that address the topic of reason and emotion.
  • A balance between conceptual depth and material precision | Previously completed works featured in the portfolio will be taken into consideration when assessing the submission.
  • Preference will be given to objects and/or concepts that make full use of the main hall’s sizeable volume.
  • Site specificity | A dialogue is to be sought with the genius loci (in terms of architecture and/or content).
  • Feasibility | Budget, public safety

Find information about REAKTOR and the submission procedure following the link.

DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY

Drawing Research Residency

Presented in partnership between L’AiR ARTS at FIAP PARIS and DRAWinternational, Caylus, France

The invisible realm of possibility 

Two-part residency program:
Part I - Creative Practice in a medieval town of Caylus
Part II - Contextual Research and Exhibition in Paris
Application deadline: January 4, 2019

The project will focus upon notions of intention and the physical act of drawing as it arrives as a vectorial force on a material surface. One could say, an infrastructure from where other possibilities collide, from common habitual behaviours toward the realm of the unknown. 

A conscious reflective engagement with the world felt through our our skin, flesh and bones is a spatial process of perception directed upon an environment of mass, volume and depth. A world encountered by the whole human interactive corporeal sensorium through which we become inexorably a part. As such, there can be no gap between biology and society as we move in and around the world, finding out that we are made of the same fundamental stuff as everything else. From this perspective our bodies are situated ecologically, in a role which is not simply ‘subjective’ but social and of nature itself. It is a body for others as it exists in its tension between agencies of power and systems of resistance, what is and what is in the becoming. 

To trust oneself and to be honest in a creative act, which takes cognisance of the world around can only help foster an initial space of meaningful conscious engagement. A continued focus and sense of purpose, with a loss of self, can only lead to a cyclical state of pre-reflective awareness. It is the doors of realisation and insight that resides in the depths of a primordial, intercorporeal, ‘chiasmic’ intertwining of truths, a radical space to be. 

As David Abram has stated:

. .. meaning sprouts in the very depths of the sensory world, in the heat of meeting, encounter, participation. (Abram, 1997,p75)

© Edited from ‘Choreography of Drawing: The consciousness of the body in the space of a drawing’ John McNorton, PhD Royal College of Art, 2003.
