Artist in the Community Artist-in-Residence

Share

Category:

Country:

The Currier Museum of Art invites applications for our new social practice artist residency, Artists in the Community, for a residency period beginning in late winter/early spring 2021. The residency program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting audiences with art and creative thinking. Artists in the Community deepens this mission through an open call to social practice artists who share the goal of impacting people through the transformative power of art. 

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. A consideration of how your project could be achieved under anticipated ongoing physical distancing guidelines should also be included. 

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. The Currier Museum supports resident artists with a stipend, travel allowance, materials budget, and housing in a fully-furnished home.

Street By Street- Digital Artist Residency

Share

Digital Artist Residency

Without precedent and with immediate effect, society is endeavouring to understand, adapt, and evolve to a whole new concept: Social Isolation.

In this present world-wide crisis - where physical contact, day to day life, and community interaction is severely restricted - individuals are finding themselves in the new and startling reality of navigating a world of rapidly evolving social norms.

 Street By Street aims to explore the personal and social geography of our neighbourhood. It seeks out creative, non-physical ways to navigate human connectivity and kindness in an effort to create a better picture of our community, to connect with those around us despite barriers, and to build stronger links for the future.

 We are interested in proposals that, over a two-month period, remotely explore the concept of connecting people 'street by street' through creativity and innovation. The selected applicant will produce a body of work that investigates geographical areas in the context of the social and personal topography of those who live there.

Submissions are open worldwide and to arts collectives or researchers - anyone exploring the boundaries of art, technology, and social engagement.

 Guidelines

• The selected artist will be given a virtual studio in Artlink's @87 digital gallery to document their exploration and offer a glimpse into their process for the duration of the residency.

• The Artist will be limited geographically to exploring any of the streets in a one-mile radius of our physical gallery space at 87 Princes Avenue, Hull, HU5 3PQ. We are interested in how connections can be made virtually that link together a street or community.

• The artist's response should focus on social-engagement and explore the connectivity and capacity of current digital tools and social platforms, whilst also exploring activities that do not exclude those within our communities who may not have access or the resources required to communicate in this way.

• The residency duration will be over two months, from the 27th April - 27th June, with Artlink producers supporting the artist remotely through the process.

Artist fee

£2,500 - This includes development and delivery over the two-month residency period and any materials. 

*This figure is inclusive of any VAT the artist may incur. The artist is responsible for their own tax and National Insurance arrangements. No additional travel expenses are available.

ARTCONNECT OPEN CALL | ALONE TOGETHER: STAYING CONNECTED THROUGH ART

Open Call - share your work, win cash prizes, get featured on ARTCONNECT!

ARTCONNECT and Studio Uncoated join forces to showcase the power of art to relate and reflect on social circumstances by giving creators a chance to share their work and get rewarded through an open call competition on the topic of being “Alone Together”

All submissions will be reviewed by the curator and founder of Studio Uncoated, Josephine de Fijter and three winners will be selected and announced on ARTCONNECT.

Free to Apply + Deadline: April 10, 2020

Social distancing is in place and is probably here for at least a little while as we confront and adapt to the new normal caused by the coronavirus pandemic. But social distancing really means physical distancing, and as social creatures by nature, people are still finding ways to connect.

At times like this, art becomes even more meaningful. It can be a way for us to emotionally connect with a circumstance such as the physical isolation that many of us are in. It can be personal and intimate, political and provocative, or beautiful and inspiring. That is the great thing about art, it can be so many things from so many voices and offer us all something different.

In case you haven’t noticed, ARTCONNECT is back – bigger and better than ever before! As part of ARTCONNECT’s mission to support creatives and provide a platform for artistic expression, we are proud to announce our first Open Call on the topic of Staying Connected. Because, after all, we have a lot going for us in this era of pervasive digital communications and we can use this time to be creative and find new ways to connect as a community.

A word from curator Josephine de Fijter

As a curator, I am extremely excited to participate in this Open Call. I believe the impact of the virus has shocked most of us deeply, but now it is also important to stimulate each other to trust that our creations will have a positive effect during this challenging period. Together we can communicate on a deeper level through the Art that we make.

Being house-bound, we all experience a limitation of our physical freedom. Not being able to touch each other and whilst being outside having to stay at distance apart can feel alienating. How can we as creatives transform the fear of being alone and cut-off from society into one where people feel supported and connected to one and other?

STUDIO UNCOATED

Studio Uncoated is an experience design studio with an extensive network of artists and creatives, together they collaborate on developing unique content and brand activations. The founder of Studio Uncoated, Josephine de Fijter, will be the Curator of this open call.

Art Gene is announcing an opportunity for an experienced artist to work within our team and community of volunteers and participants on the further development of the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space (est. 2015) to facilitate learning around sustainable approaches to local food production and help redress biodiversity loss across the borough’s nine islands and the town’s urban core.
