Montemero Art Residency

City:

Montemero is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable ecological and sociocultural development. We believe that the experience of living and creating in a different context has to be facilitated through exchange and collaboration. Thus, we collaborated with iksvy art, an independent initiative and platform for artists and art professionals to connect and be part of future art projects, to create an interdisciplinary art residency and an educational programme that focuses on land degradation and marine pollution.

The Programme

Our programme offers open spaces, interdisciplinary round tables, and workshops designed not only to improve skills but also to expand our understanding of nature and recreation. This will be a time for you to work in your own development as well as building up your professional career through networking and collaborating. The residency is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we welcome all those who are looking for space and time to explore new forms of interdisciplinary and intercultural collaboration. Our long-term objective with this programme is to create an eco-art project. Thus, we’ll be giving priority to individuals who would be exploring these areas.

Please check out the programme from the provided link. 

Our goals

-Creating an environment and offer the facilities conducive to creative work, integrated with nature, a place to experience new perspectives and acquire new references.

-Promoting international collaboration and networking, to bring together people from different fields to share and promote ecological and cultural sustainability.

-Embrace and emphasize the experimental, the undefined and unexpected states of creativity.

Outcome

Throughout the programme participating artists will have a chance to incorporate new mediums and disciplines to their practice. This process will be supported with group discussions, individual portfolio reviews, and brainstorming sessions with our curator. At the end of the stay, a final exhibition will be organized with created artworks. For those who are not involved in the visual arts, this is not mandatory, however, we ask participants to present a small talk about their work and practice. In order to increase community engagement and gain experience, we also encourage artists to create and hold both public and private workshops regarding their practice. Other events can be organized by the residents, within the bounds of possibilities of the organizers.

Living arrangements

All participants will have their own private room and there is plenty of space both indoor and outside to create and be inspired. All activities at the residency are arranged in community with other residents, this also applies to living arrangements such as cooking meals and keeping tidy. Living in a collective means taking workshops together, eating together, being able to have respectful and insightful discussions, having someone there to help you and be inspired by to create something together.

Studio Information

Montemero was the former atelier of German artist Wolfgang Simon. Wolfgang Simon studied from 1957 to 1962 at the Berlin College of Fine Arts. Simon understood himself as a student of Friedrich Schröder Sonnenstern. Since the late 1960s to his last days, he lived in Andalusia and dedicate this life to conservation of this land.

Artpace 2021 Texas Open XLL

Share

Category:

Country:

The Texas Open Call is our primary resource for identifying artists who are interested in and eligible for participation in Artpace’s International Artist-in-Residence Program. All Texas resident artists who apply will first have their materials reviewed for eligibility. All artists who pass this eligibility check will be reviewed on a rolling basis by Artpace staff and guest curators. Studio visits will take place in 2020.

ABOUT ARTPACE

Since opening in 1995, Artpace has served as an international laboratory for the creation and advancement of contemporary art. Our residencies, exhibitions, and public programs nurture the creative expression of emerging and established artists, while actively engaging youth and adult audiences. Artpace is housed in an 18,000-square-foot facility renovated by the eminent San Antonio firm Lake/Flato Architects. The 1920s building, once a Hudson automobile dealership, is located in the vibrant downtown cultural district, one block from the city’s famous River Walk.

ABOUT ARTPACE’S INTERNATIONAL ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM

Artpace annually hosts three residencies (spring, summer, and fall). Each residency includes one Texas artist, one national artist, and one international artist, all selected by a guest curator. The eight-week residency culminates in a two-month exhibition onsite. The mission of this program is to provide artists from varied disciplines with unparalleled resources and support that allows them to experiment with new ideas and take provocative risks. More than 240 artists at various stages in their careers have been selected to participate in the program.

An Artpace residency includes travel expenses, a living stipend, a materials budget, an apartment, and studio/exhibition space. Resident artists have access to fully-equipped wood and metal workshops and a digital media studio, in addition to technical and administrative support. The residency is followed by a two-month exhibition of the project created, which is documented for Artpace’s archive.

Wassaic Project Family Residency

Family Winter Residency - 2019/20

Deadline: June 25, 2019, midnight

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

We recognize that artists who have families often opt-out of peer community building for practical reasons: residencies don't often take children, events happen late at night, childcare is expensive.  Bowie, Jeff and Eve (Wassaic co-founders) have kids; they're all artists. They have families that they want to be with and not away from. And they ALSO want to connect with other artist peer groups and build community.  While we can't solve all these problems at once (yet!), we have solved the first one: we now offer Family Residencies from November - March from 1 to 8 weeks in length.

HOW TO APPLY:

We accept proposals for 1 to 8 weeks from November 2019 through March 2020, and will work with each family to accommodate their specific needs.  Each Family will be provided with a private house complete with a kitchen, living room, dining room, bathroom, and three bedrooms.

REVIEW PROCESS

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Residency Director, and professionals in their field. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.

STUDIOS + HOUSING:

Our winter studios are located in the first and second floors of the Old Hotel in Maxon Mills.  Residents will receive an adaptable raw studio that is roughly 100 square feet. Artists will have 24 hour access to their studio.  Artists also have access to the residency’s woodshop, located on the first floor of Maxon Mills. They also have the possibility to expand on large scale projects within the seven floors of Maxon Mills.

Residents are required to bring everything they need for their creative practice. Each studio is provided with a table, chair and limited lighting. We do not provide any art materials.

The Wassaic House Hotel, built in the 1850s by Noah Gridley of Noah Gridley and Son Ironworks, was a direct product of the railroad and functioned as a leisure location where upper class railroad passengers could rest, dine, and socialize. The hotel abuts the Maxon Mills and now serves as our winter residency studio space.

FEES:

In an effort to serve and support emerging artists, we are able to subsidize residencies for all individual artists who do not have other forms of support. Thanks to the generous support of donors and grants, the fee for the Family residency is $900 per month. We are open to shorter stays at a prorated rate.

We are, however, able to offer up to $300 in need-based (as self-reported in their applications) financial assistance to residents for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit.

Accepted artists will pay their first month’s residency fee + $1000 security deposit upon signing their artist contract. Subsequent fees are due at the first of each month. There are no refunds.

PROGRAMMING

Two to three times per month, creative professionals will visit to give public lectures and make one-on-one studio visits with creative professionals our residents. Our embedded critics, Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was (of Ghost of a Dream), will lead group studio visits.

All artists are also invited to participate in a monthly evening of artist’s talks and presentations, and are encouraged to be available on the last Saturday of every month to participate in our Open Studios program.

2019/20 Winter Residency OPEN CALL

Applications for The Wassaic Project’s 2019/20 Winter Residency program are now open! 

Deadline: June 25, 2019, midnight

The Wassaic Project accepts 1 – 4 month proposals for our Winter Residency program: November 2019 - March 2020.

The Wassaic Project cultivates and supports community for emerging and professional contemporary artists, writers and other creatives. Housed in historic, landmark buildings, the residency program offers nine artists each month the opportunity to live and work in the heart of a rural community. The Wassaic Project seeks artists working in a diverse range of media who want to produce, explore, challenge, and expand on their current art making practices, while participating in a grass roots, community-based arts organization.

STUDIOS + FACILITIES:

It’s a different Wassaic in the winter. We trade swimming holes for bonfires, the Luther Barn for the Old Hotel in Maxon Mills — where residents work out of 80–100 square foot studios in converted 19th-century hotel rooms. It’s a cozier space, but one with plenty of room to experiment: residents are free to undertake large-scale projects throughout the non-winterized mill spaces. While our print shop closes for the winter, residents have 24-hour access to their studios, our wood shop, and our ceramics studio. And they live just a short walk away in one of our two residency houses, the Schoolhouse and the Lodge, where accommodations include a private bedroom, shared living room/study, dining room, kitchen, and bathrooms.

The Wassaic House Hotel, built in the 1850s by Noah Gridley of Noah Gridley and Son Ironworks, was a direct product of the railroad and functioned as a leisure location where upper class railroad passengers could rest, dine, and socialize. The hotel abuts the Maxon Mills and now serves as our winter residency studio space. Each of the former hotel rooms has been adapted into studio spaces.

PROGRAMMING

Two to three times per month, creative professionals will visit to give public lectures and make one-on-one studio visits with creative professionals our residents. Our embedded critics, Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was (of Ghost of a Dream), will lead group studio visits.

All artists are also invited to participate in a monthly evening of artist’s talks and presentations, and are encouraged to be available on the last Saturday of every month to participate in our Open Studios program.

FEES & FELLOWSHIPS:

The value of the Winter Residency is $1500 per month — which includes studio space, housing, and extensive programming, performance, and exhibition opportunities. But thanks to continued support from our donors and granting organizations, all residencies are offered at $700 per month.

We are, however, able to offer up to $300 in need-based (as self-reported in their applications) financial assistance to residents for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. Our intention is for financial assistance to be given to artists for whom it would be impossible to attend without financial support. If that is not the case for you. Financial assistance is provided to reduce financial hardship; our allocation is not based on merit.

Accepted artists will pay their first month’s residency fee + $100 security deposit upon signing their artist contract. Subsequent fees are due at the first of each month. There are no refunds.

 

EDUCATION FELLOWSHIP:

Our expanded Education Fellowship program awards no fee 2 - 3 month residencies in exchange for extensive participation in the Wassaic Project’s education programming, which connects the local community to contemporary artists and artistic practices. Recipients will work primarily as Teaching Artists in our Wassaic X Webutuck program, which builds critical thinking and creative problem solving skills through collaborations between emerging artists and public high school students. All Education Fellows will gain extensive curriculum-building and teaching experience.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Because we're an artist-run organization focused on strengthening and supporting our community, all residents (except our Education Fellows and Family residents) are required to work eight hours per month during their time in Wassaic. Residents work alongside staff members and help us out with installation/de-installation of exhibitions, the Art Nest, our community garden, office organization, and projects in the larger community. It’s our way of prioritizing community development: we want artists and Wassaic locals interacting, collaborating, and working together.

REVIEW PROCESS

Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the Wassaic Project Co-Directors, Residency Director, and professionals in their field. Artists and writers will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large.
