Space Waste Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

A one-month sculpture residency at Greywood Arts in partnership with the National Space Centre and supported by Cork County Council. 

We are seeking expressions of interest from artists with a sculpture, three-dimensional or multi-disciplinary practice who are interested in examining questions arising around the waste produced by the acceleration of technology. It is an opportunity for an artist to explore the impact of human interactions with space and how we could move forward into the future. What are the implications of sending satellites and other hardware into space? Whose responsibility is it to regulate this and to manage space debris? 

The residency is an exciting invitation for an artist to reimagine and re-purpose technological space components that cannot be recycled. The artist will collect materials from the National Space Centre and observe the workings of a busy ground station before immersing themselves in the creative environment at Greywood. The project concludes with an exhibition and discussion at the National Space Centre in early December to showcase the work created during the residency and kick of the NSC’s 10th birthday celebrations. 

The National Space Centre is set to share space communications components including circuit boards, assemblies and data subframes with the artist, as well as preserved panels from their recently dismantled 11-metre EU-5B4 dish.

“This is a pivotal time in space exploration,” explained NSC CEO Rory Fitzpatrick. “We’re looking at manned Martian exploration in the near future, while Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson have launched space tourism as a viable industry. At the same time, there are more than 125 million pieces of space garbage orbiting our planet. It’s an ideal moment to examine questions around our responsibility to live sustainably not only on Earth, but beyond it.”

Open call for a virtual residency: Arts Unchained; For democracy in the arts.

Share

Category:

wendy.network is announcing another virtual residency for creative individuals of any background and/or mediums! Our main purpose at wendy.network is to find new ways for artists to thrive without having to struggle for survival, by fostering a radically empathetic community of artists and art lovers. This residency is dedicated to the ‘democratization of the arts’, where together with other participants, mentors and wendy.network team members, the residents will strive to create, imagine and work towards projects that can bring the society closer to the democratization of the arts. 

The current artistic landscape operates with the guidance of a select few. All too often we find an environment of exclusivity and elitism even in those institutions and organizations that seemingly function as ‘progressive’. With this year’s wendy.network’s residency we hope to create a space open to all, that will challenge the current state of the art world and dare to propose new methods of thinking, writing, exhibiting, creating, living, etc. With this call, we call for the diversification and democratization of the contemporary art world and art market so we can all experience an equal and inclusive artistic system!

The residency will include weekly lectures from 4 guest speakers, private sessions with a guest mentor, and workshops, where you will tackle various problems related to the topic and your project. There will also be time to bond and connect to the other participants during the weekly side activities. The main focus will be on developing a personal project that is related to the topic of the democratization of the arts and building a tangible report/article together with the other participants.

At the end of the residency, the wendy.network will host a live event where the six resident individuals can present their completed residency projects. Additionally, the residency will culminate in the publication of a residency manifesto/leaflet, that will include essays, notes, and material from all individuals participating in the residency (residents, guest speakers, guest mentor, etc.).

The residency will happen during the month of October 2021, with a weekly commitment of 7-8 hours of contact time.

The residency will happen online using two platforms: Zoom and Gather.town. Participants are welcome to apply from all around the world. Please keep in mind that the contact time will mostly happen in the evenings in Central European Time. 

Requirements:

  • You are a creative individual of any background (artist, curator, academic, etc.);
  • Each week you are able to present your weekly progress;
  • You are keen and interested to work on the democratization of arts;
  • You show up to the meetings and workshops (total of 7-8 contact hours per week);
  • You are proactive, creative, and have a critical mindset;
  • You are a team player;
  • You have access to internet connection strong enough for video calls; 

How to apply? 

Should you have any issues or concerns, contact us at arts.unchained@gmail.com.

Monetary reimbursement: 200 Eur + 200 KONJ coins.

Open Call for 2022 / Artist Residency Program AADK Spain

Share

Category:

Country:

Dear friends,

In the midst of a global scenario that is still looking for balance, we are filled with enthusiasm for the possibility of releasing this new Open Call. At AADK Spain, we continue working to facilitate spaces for creation and bring our resources closer to those who need time for reflection and experimentation within their artistic practice.
Today, our doors remain open, and we feel strangely and strongly equipped with the experience gained during these odd times.

We believe that all we have experienced during the periods of confinement and social distancing has deeply impacted our idea of ​​what is essential and what is relevant. Without a doubt, these times have also affected our sensory perception: in a matter of a few months, we became aware of the relevance of some of our most forgotten senses. The loss of smell became an indicator of our state of health, the need for bodily contact reminded us about the fragility of our emotional ties.

Touching is essential to our lives — it is estimated that within a day we touch around 150 objects and surfaces. Our contact with other human bodies is significantly less frequent than that, but nevertheless essential for our well-being.
Today, touching is a gesture that invites us to redefine: how do we touch our planet?, how do we connect with other living beings and with our peers?
We invite you to think about touch in all its complexity, reflecting, for example, on what we call textures – in image or sound – as a type of information that comes from a tactile experience.
We consider that, already immersed in this “new normality”, it is essential to reflect on the limitations that have been imposed on touch as well as on our continuous turn towards a virtual world.
Re-discovering our tactile relationship with the world and reactivating our haptic perception – that set of non-visual sensations that an individual experiences to receive information – are the proposals of this call.

We look forward to your applications!
The AADK Spain team

 

AADK Spain invites all artists and researchers who wish to work on the topics of body, territory and spatiality to participate in its Artistic Residency Program. For this call, priority (not exclusive) will be given proposals that work with the topic of the haptic/tactile through any creative discipline (dance, performance, visual arts, work with new media or any other duly justified approach). Both individual and collective proposals are eligible.

AADK Spain understands residency programs as contextualized spaces where location models the practices and modifies both its participants and the local communities. Thus, our Artistic Residency is an interdisciplinary and socially committed program that offers its attendants a space for analysis and production. It aims to facilitate research in rural environments, highlighting the value of local knowledge as a means to re-think how these locations can position themselves in an era of massive urbanization through a social, historical and geographical perspective.

Throughout their stay, participants create a temporary community that shares experiences and processes, fostering debate and a transversal perspective of their projects. AADK Spain provides tutelage and curatorial follow-up as well as assistance in production and management of projects and Open Studios night on the last Saturday of each month. Additionally, participants are encouraged to keep in touch with us after their residency ends, so that we can promote their work in forthcoming exhibitions curated by our platform as well as in papers, conferences and/or publications.

The amount of participants varies every month, but reaches a maximum of six projects (including individual proposals or duos/collectives).

- Duration: 1-6 months with 2 months being the recommended minimum for the full development of a project. The residency period starts on the first day of the first month and ends on the 30th day of the last month.

- The artists will have access to: accommodation, work space, access to common areas and outdoor space, basic technical equipment, support in production, mentoring and curatorial support, visibility of the artist in the communication channels of AADK Spain.

- Accommodation: private room in a shared house or individual apartment.

- Studio/Workspace:
Centro Negra is the main building of AADK Spain. It serves both as working area and exhibition space. It is located on the slope of a mountain, being reachable only by foot, and stands at the foot of a Moorish castle from the twelfth century.Its architecture is an assembly of small poultry yards and ancient houses that fell into disuse at the beginning of the twentieth century. It still retains many stone walls and mountain ledges.
The current structure is made up of 6 different and interconnected spaces. Each of them is unique in its size and morphology, constituting a set of great versatility and capable of adapting to multiple purposes. Given the morphology of the building, closedworkspaces are not possible. We invite you to take on this challenge as an opportunity to be in touch with the creative processes of other participants.

Prize summary: 
Selected artists can participate in our Artist Residency Program for a period of 1-6 months.

Paid residency opportunity. Please find out about fees in our Terms & Conditions on our website.

Making Our History: Artists Render Lincoln’s Legacy

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The Center for Lincoln Studies (CLS) and Visual Arts at the University of Illinois Springfield (UIS) invite applications for an innovative remote artist-in-residency program focusing on the legacies of Abraham Lincoln. Twenty artists will be selected from throughout the state to participate in the residency during the 2021-2022 academic year. They will learn and think about Lincoln’s varied legacies in monthly meetings with each other and with faculty from Visual Arts and CLS; they will also present and discuss their art in-progress at several of the meetings. Each artist’s object will be to create art that stimulates conversation about the American past.

The artworks will be exhibited from August to September 2022 in the Visual Arts Gallery at UIS, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, and the Springfield Art Association. The exhibitions will include short videos that document the making of the physical art and explore each artist’s historical perspective and artistic approach. The videos will later form the basis of a permanent digital exhibit hosted by the Center for Lincoln Studies. The digital exhibit will document the historical legacies explored by the artists and will provide resources for K-12 teachers to teach about Lincoln and the American past.

Requirements: Artists must be residents of Illinois during the period of the residency, participate in seven Zoom meetings during the residency program, agree to be filmed in their studio about the art-making process, and deliver a finished work of art to UIS by June 30, 2022. Artists will receive $2500 for their artwork, which will become the property of the University of Illinois. 

Selection Process: The juried artists will reflect geographical diversity, diversity of form, method, and concept, and diversity of background. Faculty, graduate students, and alumni of the University of Illinois will receive extra consideration for up to eight of the twenty slots, and the jury will seek to include at least four graduate students to create opportunities for emerging artists. 

Timeline:

Selection of artists-in-residency: September 15, 2021

Residency period: September 2021 to May 2022

Delivery of art: June 30, 2022

Exhibition schedule: August-September 2022

OPEN CALL - RAKE COMMUNITY 2021: PRACTITIONERS-IN-RESIDENCE

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Calling artists, researchers, writers, data analysts, journalists, activists, academics, scientists, community groups, curators, photographers, poets and everyone else to submit to RAKE Community 2021: Practitioners-in-Residence!

RAKE Community is an autonomous platform for practitioners to develop research-based visual enquiries. It aims to build a framework for socially and politically driven projects while promoting accessible exchange outside of traditional routes or institutions.

After an intensive two-month collaboration initiative in 2020 followed by a year of fascinating takeovers on the community Instagram page, we are pleased to launch the second iteration of the programme which will take the form of a series of digital residencies on the platform throughout the rest of 2021.

The selected practitioners will be designated one month to carry out their own solo research on Instagram, where each will be expected to present a series of posts showcasing the development of their research - no formal outcomes are required. Practitioners will be encouraged to communicate, critique and collaborate with one another throughout the entire period, with the support of RAKE members.

Applicants are asked to consider the theme (IN)VISIBILITY - which seeks to capture the duality between the visible and the obscured, wherever it may occur. Encompassing secrecy, in-between spaces, that which is ’hidden in plain sight’, and the visualisation of the unseen.

We are particularly interested in proposals that are of an investigative nature; that are politically-, socially- or data-driven; or that critically utilise new online tools or open-source inquiry techniques and technologies. 

The programme will include regular feedback sessions and communication with RAKE members and fellow selected participants. Practitioners-in-residence will also be invited to join the RAKE Community online workspace for ongoing feedback and support from a growing network of artists, writers and researchers, and will have the opportunity to contribute a piece for RAKE Post during their residencies.

Practitioners/ collectives of all disciplines and at any stage in their careers who want to experiment with new processes of interdisciplinary research and visual expression are invited to apply. Proposals are encouraged from all over the world. We especially welcome submissions from underrepresented voices. Unfortunately, as RAKE Community has no external funding, it's not possible for us to offer funding for practitioners-in-residence (or ourselves as facilitators) during this year’s program.
