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.

Bookmark- online workshop and exhibition

Share

Eligibility:

An online workshop for artists who want to revise their work, think of it differently and create new art and turning this scenario into a growth full experience for their work.
This workshop takes its name from an almost archaic piece of paper or as a page-marker for a book.

Einat Moglad

This is a useful way to mark a spot to which you wish to come back to and move on from. I see this as a metaphor of an ongoing artistic process of learning and revising while being open to the future to unfold.

The concept of this workshop asks you to examine what the important points to mark on, or to dwell upon in your creations as well as how to move on from that point on.

During this time of covid 19I belive that this could be a great opportunity to reflect and bookmark what it is you would like to take with you onward.

How the online workshop is going to operate:
1. You will join an online working group for 3 weeks. The group is a secret group on Facebook.

2. In this group you will be provided with guidance on the different exercises of the workshop as well as have a chance to have discussions about your process and questions that rise during our activity as well as be able to share your work, reflect and converse with other artists worldwide.

3. Enjoy group exercises which you can do at your own time in the artistic medium of your choice.

4. Since this is a “bookmark” workshop we will also play with the relationship between texts, words and art and examine how these different artistic mediums can influence and expand what we see and learn about our work.

5. You will receive a specific exercise designed for you, that exercise will be designed to help you to explore new terrain of your art in order to take a new leap into the unknown and see what just might be that new chapter in your art.

6. At the end of our 3 weeks together you will have an additional 2-3 weeks to finish your work and prepare it for an online exhibition on the Emergence Art Space website  https://emergentartspace.org  Emergence Art Space, which is supporting this project, is an international art organization based in San Francisco, California, whose mission is to foster cross cultural dialogue and understanding through art.

Only artists who are active members of the workshop and follow the process of the workshop showing excellence in their work will be eligible to submit their work for the online exhibition.

Collage Artist Lab

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

Collage Artist Lab

at Tulane University Special Collections in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA
Friday, 3 April-Monday, 6 April 2020

Deadline: Rolling with no applications accepted after January 5th, 2020. 

Collage Artist Lab is a four-day intensive of workshops and discussions designed to foster the integration of history and contemporary art into a collage artist’s practice.

The goal of the Collage Artist Lab is to equip artists with tools and strategies for picking up the unfinished work of history and speak to contemporary civic discourse around social, economic, and environmental issues. Through interactive sessions, collections research, and site visits with a historian, artists will explore their process and practice; present a slideshow of their work; receive supportive, critical, curatorial feedback about their ideas; and discuss contemporary issues. 

Designed with collage artists in mind, the lab considers how collagists use popular material culture in their work. The Lab will speak to issues of appropriation, copyright, and fair use and explore how the artist’s choice and understanding of material shapes the narrative of the artwork. 

Artists will complete the Lab with a project proposal for an exhibition or a book and a sample work that will be exhibited during the month of July 2020 in the Special Collections Gallery at Tulane University and will be a feature of Kolaj Fest New Orleans. Kolaj Institute will consider proposals for additional support.

Collage Artist Lab is intended for self-motivated artists, regardless of the stage in their career, who want to develop a practice of working with historic sites or history associations to create and present art that embeds itself in non-traditional spaces and speaks to a general community about contemporary issues.

CURRICULUM

BEFORE THE LAB

Accepted artists will receive a package of information about planning their trip and readings to prepare for the Lab. Artists will be asked to prepare and submit a 5-7 minute slide presentation of their art practice prior to arrival.

DURING THE LAB

Each day will start at 10AM with a gathering of participants and facilitators where we will review and discuss the work for the day. Sessions are scheduled throughout the day with ample time for breaks and exploration. Friday and Monday will take place at Tulane University Special Collections. On Saturday and Sunday, the lab will meet at Antenna Gallery. 

Friday will focus on artist research and learning how to use collections. On Saturday & Sunday, the lab will have artist presentations and sessions that focuses on artist development with an emphasis on articulating artist practice and how artists make connections between history and contemporary issues. On Saturday, participants will meet historian Frank Perez for a walking tour of the French Quarter to explore the role of site and place in the context of art and history. The group will visit some of the sites referenced in the Special Collections and hear stories about New Orleans history and the evolving cityscape. Perez will also speak about the LGBT Archives Project of Louisiana. On Monday, the lab will return to Tulane University Special Collections for a discussion on proposal writing and researching specific material requested by the artists. Themes of race, gender, and the environment will thread throughout all the sessions. Each day will end with an informal discussion off site from 7 to 9PM.

AFTER THE LAB

Artists will leave the Lab with a network of peer support; an idea for a project; and the task of turning that idea into a project proposal and a sample work. The project proposal may be for an exhibition, a book, or some other project that will be considered by Kolaj Institute. The proposals and sample work will be exhibited during the month of July 2020 in the Special Collections Gallery at Tulane University and will be a feature of Kolaj Fest New Orleans.
