Sculptorvox Vol 3: A God Complex
Closing date: 31st Jan 2019

 

A God Complex: a

‘an unshakable belief characterised by consistently inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, or infallibility’

We are seeking new writing, essays, creative interpretation, reviews, interviews and photographic work that explore and respond to the title and theme ‘A God Complex’.

You are invited to submit work that expresses notions, ideas and theories on ‘A God Complex’: aspects of the human ego, narcism, creation, transcendence, allure, seduction, religion, elitism, either lateral or literal.

Sculptorvox is an 8 volume series going beyond seeing sculpture as 'object' and delves into the world, work, inspiration, processes, influences, ideas, journeys and careers of artists, writers, photographers who all work directly or indirectly with notions of three dimensions. From interviews and articles to original writing, thinking and photography that goes some way to show the breadth and depth of practice in contemporary studios.

Please see the website for further information and submission guidelines.

Byrdcliffe welcomes Artists-in-Residence for 2019 in the areas of Writing, Music Composition, and Playwriting/Screenwriting (details below).

Individual artists participating in Byrdcliffe's Artist-in-Residence program are asked to pay a subsidized fee of $700 for the residency which covers studio access and accommodations within a 250-acre mountain campus. You may select your accommodation preferences on the application. Byrdcliffe offers financial aid opportunities to participants based on a combination of need and merit. To be considered for a fellowship, artists must submit the required financial information listed in the application.

Writing

All forms of original prose, poetry, and nonfiction are accepted at Byrdcliffe for the May through September 2019 AIR season. Nonfiction in this category may include essays, criticism, journalism, autobiography, monographs, memoirs, and experimental forms.

Music Composition

Composers, songwriters, and musicians working in a wide range of musical genres are welcome at Byrdcliffe during the May through September 2019 AIR season. Music Composition residents have access to a private studio called the Ice House, a converted outbuilding with an upright Steinway Piano near the Byrdcliffe Barn where they can work undisturbed as well as several performance spaces that may be utilized for informal presentations of works-in-progress.

Playwriting/Screenwriting

Writers working on a screenplay, stage play, teleplay, radio play, and/or an audio drama are accepted at Byrdcliffe in this category for the May through September 2019 AIR season. Playwrights are typically given a work space in White Pines, the magnificent and quiet original home of Byrdcliffe’s founders.

Since its founding in 1902, the Byrdcliffe Art Colony, located in the historic, unique community of Woodstock, NY, is one of the earliest utopian art colonies in America, located only 2.5 hours north of New York City. Byrdcliffe has welcomed artists like Bob Dylan, Philip Guston, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Eva Hesse, and hundreds more, to and live and work on a 250-acre property surrounded by the serene beauty of the Catskill Mountains.

Byrdcliffe is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons. Women, people of color, LGBTQIA communities, and other historically underrepresented artists are encouraged to apply. Regretfully Byrdcliffe is unable to accommodate young children at this time. Byrdcliffe offers ADA compliant access to its main residency building and some studios.

Accommodations consist of simple historic arts & crafts style cabins and cottages clustered together in a close to nature forest setting. Mice, deer, hawks, ticks, chipmunks, bunnies, bears, owls, dust, leaf mold, and other elements of nature are present.
