CALL TO ARTISTS: Collage Artist Residency: Money Money

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in June 2021

Deadline to apply: May 26, 2021

During this project-driven artist residency, collage artists work together to create a series of collages that illustrate Eleanor H. Porter’s 1918 novel, Oh, Money! Money!. The result will be a book published by Kolaj Institute. The residency is being done in conjunction with “The Money $how” at Saint Kate – The Arts Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The book will be released at an event in July.

“The Money $how” is co-curated by Frank Juarez, the publisher of Artdose Magazine, and Ric Kasini Kadour, the editor of Kolaj Magazine. A tour of late-stage capitalism, each artist in the exhibition uses collage to unpack ideas about money and its influence on our culture. The curators start from the premise that money is an idea that shapes contemporary life and present works that invite viewers to consider cash, labor, and capital. In addition to the exhibition, Kolaj Institute is publishing the book, The Money $how: Cash, Labor, Capitalism, & Collage, in which Kadour juxtaposes contemporary artwork against fragments of American history and literature as a way of showing how collage can help us deconstruct culture and understand the world differently. 

In Eleanor H. Porter’s 1918 novel, Oh, Money! Money!, a Chicago multi-millionaire struggles to decide to whom he should leave his money. As an eccentric experiment, he schemes to give his three distant cousins one hundred thousand dollars each to see how they handle the windfall. The book is a time capsule of early 20th century American life with a strong focus on the lives of women and observations about material culture and communities before the rampant consumerism of the 1920s and the Great Depression. In telling this story, Porter gives us a look at the role of and attitudes about money that remain relevant today. The book raises important questions about the role of money in our lives: What good is money? Is money cruel? How should one handle money? How does money change us?

The residency will unfold on four Saturdays where artists will convene in three-hour sessions. Artists will discuss the themes raised in Porter’s novel, hear from guest speakers, and collage together. Artists will take a virtual tour of “The Money $how” and receive a copy of the companion book. The group will collectively produce a series of twenty-six collages, one for each of the chapters in Porter’s novel.

Christopher Kurts will serve as art director for this project, lead collage making sessions, and facilitate the collaboration. Heather Ryan Kelley will speak about “The Midden Heap Project” in which she made a collage response to each page of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. Jeanna Penn will speak about how she uses collage to interpret historical material including her project “Souls of Black Folk” collage series inspired by W.E.B. DuBois’ seminal book where he sets out to “have briefly sketched…with loving emphasis and deeper detail, that men may listen to the striving in the souls of black folk.” Nancy Bernardo will speak about collage as illustration, the visual essay she contributed to the book Deconstructing Brad Pitt, and how collage artists can engage with the marketplace for illustration. Ric Kasini Kadour will present a theoretical overview of collage, share “The Money $how” exhibition, and facilitate the discussion of Porter’s book.

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.
