Overview

Kinship Medicines is a thematic residency for queer, trans, and two-spirited Indigenous writers and visual artists who are enacting kinship ethics in their practices, particularly around discussions of gender, sex, and the queer-trans Indigenous futures movement.

This residency focuses on the discursive spark shared between queer, trans, and two spirited Indigenous visual artists and writers by focusing on conversation, collaboration, and building creative kinship between a cohort of writers who think alongside artists, whether it be through curatorial writing or literary form,  and a cohort of studio artists. 

Kinship Medicines offers a space for writers and visual artists to grow their practices around the theme of kinship—which encompasses a wide range of spaces and ideas, from BDSM to romantic friendship—as an ethic, method, and methodology for making art.

What does the program offer?

The structure of the residency consists of seminars centered around the theme. Additionally, time and space will be given for the participants to engage with their own discipline and practices in relation to the residency theme through studio practice.

Writers and visual artists will have their own studio in Glyde Hall with access to the visual art’s production facilities.

Who should apply?

This program is for global indigenous visual artists or writers who are queer, trans, or two-spirited.

This is the first artistic residency of its kind internationally that makes space specifically for queer, trans and two-spirited Indigenous peoples; and for discussion about the creative and discursive relationship between Indigenous artists and writers.

Dates: April 20 - May 15, 2020

 

Prizes: 

*Participants accepted to the program will be eligible for up to 100% scholarship to cover the program fee.

The program fee includes a single room and the Full Flex Meal Plan at Banff Centre. Travel to and from Banff Centre is the responsibility of participants.

A pioneering celebration of drawing returns to Trinity Buoy Wharf in London

“Drawing has seen something of a renaissance in the last twenty years in the UK”, wrote Professor Anita Taylor in The Guardian in 2014. An upcoming exhibition, the annual Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize celebrates this revival of drawing in London’s historic Docklands.

Until recently, resources and opportunities for drawing were few and far between. It was to bridge this gap that the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize was created in 1994. Led since by its founding Director, Professor Anita Taylor, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design at the University of Dundee, and supported by Trinity Buoy Wharf Trust, this open exhibition has established a reputation for championing excellence in contemporary drawing practice. 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize.

The 68 drawings selected for the 2019 exhibition by Chantal Joffe RA, Andrew Nairne OBE and Dr Dorothy Price successfully toured to The Salisbury Museum before coming to London. They will be on show in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf from 18 January to 1 February 2020. The exhibition will be open daily from 11am to 4pm and be free to see.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a wide range of events, held in The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. Numerous artists and leading industry professionals will present talks and workshops that celebrate drawing, explore its role, and encourage everyone to participate, with materials supplied by Cass Art.

Saturday 18 January - Drawing Session: Explore Making and Using Sketchbooks, with designer Jude Maguire (book here)

Plastic | Visual Arts Thematic

Overview

Plastic is everywhere, and is increasingly an object of environmental concern. However, it also provides the basis of our contemporary infrastructures including buildings, clothing, and communications networks. Despite the necessary campaigns for the elimination of single-use plastics, it is a material that cannot be easily dismissed. Plastic is one of the most intimate manifestations of our connections with oil, as it is used in everything from baby bottles to sex toys. It is also one of the foremost materials used in the production of contemporary art, from moulds to vinyl to paints.  

This residency explores how we might reconfigure our relations to plastic, seeing it as a material of potential connection, of resilience, of queer productivity without denying its immediate and devastating environmental consequences. What might happen if we thought of plastic as incredibly valuable material, rather than as immanently expendable? We invite makers and thinkers to reimagine their relations with this now fundamental material, to explore processes of recycling and reconstituting, and to pay attention to the uneven materialities of plastic and its affordances as an artistic material.

What does the program offer?

Residencies offer a structured program where visual artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting faculty, artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.

This program is designed for participation over the entire period. Variable dates will not be considered.

Who should apply?

This residency is open to visual artists, curators, and academics. Applicants should have completed formal training in visual arts or a field related to this program at the post-secondary level, and should demonstrate a history of exhibitions, publications, and projects. Collectives of no more than two people are welcome to apply.

Application Deadline: March 04, 2020
Dates: July 20 - August 21, 2020

 

Prizes: 

Financial Aid up to 100% is available to cover tuition (meal plans and accommodations are not eligible).

Boulder Dairy Arts Center 2021 Call for Artists

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Dairy’s Visual Art Jury is an eleven-member committee comprised of artists, curators, university faculty and art collectors. Following the close of this year’s call, applications will be reviewed by the Dairy’s Curator of Visual Arts and this jury to select individual artists and groups of artists to exhibit in the Dairy's four galleries during the period defined above. 

Most exhibitions are 6 weeks in length and are rotated in all 4 galleries at the same time. Exhibitions in all four galleries are usually planned around the same idea, concept, medium or artist. This provides greater context for all the work and the viewer is able to experience a narrative throughout the entire space. You may be accepted for a solo exhibition or become a part of a group exhibition.

In addition to accepting applications from artists and arts organizations, a non-artist member of the public, may submit a proposal for an exhibition of work by an artist or group of artists from any state or any country. The person submitting the curated exhibition proposal will be considered the exhibitor and will be responsible for the exhibition as described in the “Legal Agreement” section of this prospectus. If a submission for a curated group exhibition is invited for exhibition the curator of the exhibition proposal will work directly with the Dairy’s Curator of Visual Arts on the exhibition and the Dairy’s Curator will have final approval of all matters, including hanging and curation of the exhibition.

Artists may not bring an exhibition to the Dairy that has been shown in the Boulder area in the 12 months prior to a Dairy exhibition. However, individual works that have been shown at other venues in the area may be included in a different exhibition at the Dairy within a 12 month period. It is encouraged that work exhibited at the Dairy shall be no more than three years old at the time of exhibit although exceptions may be made by the Dairy’s Jury and/or Curator. Please note that the Dairy Galleries are not equipped to exhibit art jewelry at this time. For an exhibition of art jewelry, the exhibiting artist or arts organization must work with the Curator in obtaining display cases and materials at the exhibitor's expense.

Founded in 1992, the Dairy Arts Center is a multi-disciplinary, not-for-profit, cultural arts organization housed in the historic Watts-Hardy Dairy building in Boulder, Colo. which operated as a dairy storage and processing plant in the 1960's and 70's. Since 1997 when the Dairy Arts Center’s original three galleries were built, the Dairy's visual art program has grown in recognition throughout Colorado and the United States. A major renovation of the building  from August 2015 - August 2016 provided a fourth gallery along with improved lighting and exhibition facilities in the existing three galleries. In addition to the galleries the Dairy Arts Center also manages three live performance spaces and an art house cinema. Each year, the Dairy hosts over 200,000 arts experience for people of all ages who come to experience visual art exhibitions, artists’ talks, and art workshops, as well as theater, dance, music, and film.
