OPEN CALL FOR ESSAYS, POEMS, AND OTHER WRITINGS

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Open call for works in writing that address queer performativity & corporalities. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Bar Riots, El Sotano Art Space invites New York based writers, poets and artist to submit work that engages with the concepts of queer revolutions. The purpose of this exhibition is to vocalize and show the different ways in which queer communities and queer individuals enact resistance, revolution and rebellion; from their own corporality, individual and community actions, materialities and performativity. Thinking of Queer Revolutions as something that starts in the viscera, sweats through the skin and filters into the streets.

Artists will be given the opportunity to perform a live reading of their piece on July 12th.

Composers, songwriters, and musicians working in a wide range of musical genres are welcome at Byrdcliffe during the May through September 2019 AIR season.

Byrdcliffe offers fully and partially funded residencies to creatives in all disciplines for monthly, seasonal, and year round duration in a serene mountain community 2.5 hours north of NYC in the mountains of Woodstock NY. Iterations open to individuals and couples. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a simple, communal environment in close proximity to natural beauty. In our Monthly Air Program, artists may choose between communal living consisting of a private bedroom in a shared building with a separate private studio OR apply for one of two private live/work cottages in close proximity. Cottages may accommodate couples depending on their practices. All monthly Artists are invited to participate an open studio, work-share, artist studio visits, cultural field trips, and communal dinners, or are free to work in solitude during their entire stay. Residents have the opportunity to participate in an exhibition at Byrdcliffe’s Kleinert/James Center for the Arts the Spring following their residency.

Byrdcliffe annually welcomes over 80 visual artists, writers, weavers, composers, and creators of exceptional talent in groups of 15-20 per month. The main criterion for acceptance to Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is artistic excellence or demonstrated commitment to one’s field of endeavor. Emerging as well as established artists, writers, musicians, and craftspeople in nearly all media are invited to apply.  We offer ceramic kilns, weaving looms, and a minimal darkroom. We currently do not have printmaking facilities/equipment or a woodshop but welcome these disciplines. Please email us if you have questions regarding your specific practice's eligibility.

The application deadline is February 15, 2019. There is a subsidized fee of $700 for participation in the Monthly AiR program. Fellowships and subsidies are available to offset the residency fee. Different fees apply for private accommodations in Varenka and The Forge.
