Collage Artist Residencies: Scotland

Kolaj Institute is partnering with A’ the Airts and the Nithsdale Hotel in Sanquhar, Scotland to offer week-long residencies for collage artists in Spring and Fall 2024. Collage Artist Residency: Scotland is a week-long artist residency designed for artists working in collage who seek to make art in community with other artists. The residency will unfold over the course of a week. As part of Kolaj Institute's year long exploration of Castles as Buildings, Metaphors, and Systems of Power, while in Scotland, we will consider the castles of Sanquhar, Drumlanrig, and Morton; their history, folklore, and evolution.

Call to Artists: Collage in Practice Workshop

The practice of collage takes on many forms. A practice will be shaped by the goals of the artist and what they want to achieve with their artwork. It will also be informed by the choice of material, scale, and subject matter. A collage practice is also informed by the history of artists who came before and how an artist chooses to be in dialogue or opposition with their creative ancestors. A working understanding of one’s practice is critical to one’s professional and artistic development.

Call to Artists: Collage Publishing Workshop

Consider this: The book, not the gallery, is the best place to experience collage. This sentiment has broad implications for how collage artists work and how their work is received by an art world whose orientation is decidedly fixed on the gallery wall. Can the book provide for the functions that the exhibition has provided to artists for so long? Will the public accept a book as an experience of artwork or even as an object of art in and of itself? Unlike an exhibition where only original work is on display, a book depends on reproduction for its distribution. And if we now accept the book as on par with the exhibition, how does that affect how we think of the history of art publishing that has come before? These are the questions we seek to answer.

Call to Artists: Collage on Screen Artist Residency

A five-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in August 2023

Deadline: Wednesday, 26 July 2023

Collage in Motion is a project of Kolaj Institute that explores collage and the moving image, a broad, loosely defined category that includes animations, film cut-ups, collage film, stop-motion, animated GIFs, documentaries about collage artists, and other forms of media in which collage–as medium or genre–is present. We see our role as not one of defining “collage in motion” but as one of asking what “collage in motion” can be. The project manifests as articles in Kolaj Magazine, an online directory, workshops, residencies, and screenings. Artists with practice of Collage in Motion are encouraged to submit to the online directory.

Photosynthesis Magazine Issue 2: Terrorism

Photosynthesis Magazine is holding an open call for our second issue to be released in September 2023. The theme for our second issue will be "Terrorism". 

In the United States, the month of September is a month of remembrance for the terrorist attacks that happened on 9/11, 2001. This act of terrorism has become synonymous with the word in the US, sometimes even making other acts of terrorism seem "less than" to citizens. This is absolutely due to the severity of what happened on 9/11. Regardless, Photosynthesis Magazine wanted to use issue #2 to provoke viewers to question their own perceptions of Terrorism including domestic terrorism - not to be confused with domestic abuse.
