Curating Collage Workshop

Share

Eligibility:

A four week, virtual/online workshop in October-November 2020 with the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art

Curating is a vital part of art’s function: a curator creates a bridge between artwork and audience. For artists, this process can be confusing and mysterious. The goal of the Curating Collage Workshop is to equip artists with the tools to curate their own work, to work with curators, and build exhibitions that connect with diverse audiences.

The Curating Collage Workshop is a four-week program designed to train artists as curators. In six virtual meetings over four weeks and through ongoing, online discussion, we will explore the fundamentals of curating, how to create critical context for collage, and various strategies for presenting collage to an audience. Topics will include art writing; gallery and museum issues; documenting artist practice; and working with art professionals.

The Curating Collage Workshop will focus on the role of the exhibition: How do we exhibit collage? What is needed from collage to function in a commercial gallery, art center, or museum? How do we build exhibitions that go beyond the “Cut and Paste” group show model that is prevalent today? What does it mean to be artist-centric, medium-centric, or viewer-centric in the presentation of collage in exhibition? And the workshop will explore ideas around Curation: What is a curator and what is their role? How do we introduce collage to viewers? How do we build an audience for collage and generate enthusiasm and a sense of value for the work? How do we take collage where it needs to go to reach the viewers it is intended to reach?

Participants will curate a collage from the collection of the University of Vermont’s Fleming Museum of Art. Texts may be used by the Museum and will be adapted for publication in Kolaj Magazine. Artists in the workshop will curate each other’s work and produce a statement of practice, biography, and critical context for a body of work. This material will be developed into a proposal for an exhibition or book. Proposals will be considered by Kolaj Institute. Artists will leave the workshop with a collection of texts that document and provide critical context for their work.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Curating Collage Workshop is for artists with an established practice and a body of work they would like to bring to an audience through exhibition or publication.

COST

The cost of Curatoring Collage Workshop is $350 USD, however no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package. The Curating Collage Workshop is limited to 10 artists.

Eligibility:

We are currently seeking proposals from curators and cultural organizers to program a two-week residency at Anima Casa Rural. As well as leading the residency, curators will have a chance to present their programme and curatorial practice on a panel discussion at the Escuela de Artes de la Secretaría de Cultura de Jalisco (depending on school’s program and availability) in the city of Guadalajara.  Programmers will be responsible for selecting and cultivating artists for their programme, and are expected to assist ANIMA staff in promotion and marketing of their programmed residency.
As remuneration ANIMA will cover the costs of food (three meals a day) and lodging for the visiting curator, as well as travel from and to the airport. The curator is responsible for their own airfare, and Anima is happy to assist in helping them source funds with an invitation letter.

Call for Artists: "Borders" exhibition

New York Photography Diary Borders exhibition London

New York Photography Diary is going to London, and we’re looking for photographers to submit their work on the theme of “Borders,” to be exhibited at Carmel by the Green Gallery in East London.

Borders can encompass the geographical outline of a country, or the edges of a photo frame. What they permit and what they exclude speaks volumes about how we define ourselves as individuals, communities, and nations. Our changing relationship to the socio-political, economic, and cultural climate of a particular time and place is reflected in such shifting boundaries. Borders are far from an arbitrary means of separation; for better or worse, they allow us to (re)establish a sense of self.

We are seeking contributions for our upcoming exhibition that explore the tensions and consequences caused by the contemporary realignment of traditional borders.  Inspiration might be found in separatist tendencies in the US, immigration and the post-Brexit landscape, to more conceptual interpretations of this theme, such as the way new digital imaging technologies have helped expand images outside of their traditional rectangular frames.

Selected works will be exhibited at Carmel by the Green in East London between September 29th and November 29th 2016.  All submissions must be received by Thursday, September 1st to be eligible for consideration.
