Deadline February 28th: Woodstock A-I-R Program

The Center for Photography at Woodstock
Call for Entries: Woodstock A-I-R
Deadline: Postmarked by February 28, 2014

“The Woodstock Artist-in-Residency Program is designed to support artists of color working in the photographic arts who reside in the United States that would benefit with access to time, facilities, financial, critical, and technical support. This activity is created with an emphasis on supporting artists working in the photographic arts who are at the brink of their careers and promising talent. All of us lead very busy lives – the drive for this program is to free the artist from the busy routines and demands of everyday – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity.

Each year CPW offers 7 residencies for artists of color and 1 “critical studies residency” for a curator/critic of color.  A-I-R’s receive:

  • accommodations at a historic artist residence located .5 miles from CPW and the center of Woodstock’s business district.
  • 24/7 access to CPW’s workspace facilities (including black-&-white darkroom, digital imaging stations, and library)
  • critical and technical support
  • stipend for food and travel, and honorarium
  • exhibition and related opportunities”

Deadline March 31st: Lycée Français de Chicago: The French International School AIR

Lycée Français de Chicago: The French International School
Call for Proposals: Artist in Residency Program
Deadline: Saturday, March 31, 2012

“Who Are We?
The Lycée Français de Chicago has been providing a world class education to American and international students since 1995. Beginning in pre-school and continuing through 12th grade, our students thrive in a unique multicultural, dual-language learning environment. Our school puts a great emphasis on the arts as a cultural expression and as a means of international dialogue. We believe that the arts influence the development of how people communicate their perceptions, responses, and understanding of the world to themselves and to others. We focus on providing each student with the cultural and artistic education necessary for this development.

Since 1997 the Lycee’s Artist-in-Residence program has collaborated with such international artists and institutions as Christian Boltanski, Ery Camara, Sheila Hicks, Laurent Baude, Beate Gütschow, Périphériques Architectes, and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. While each project has explored new linkages between art and learning, it is the integration of the artists’ ideas into the philosophy and overall curriculum, as well as into the day-to-day activities of the school, that are most significant.

Over the next three years, as the Lycée prepares to move to a new school location in 2015, we are seeking three artists, one per year, to create projects with our students that will help us reaffirm our identity as a global community. The theme for the Artist-in-Residence program during these three years will be: “The Lycée as a Community of Productive Contradictions.”

We are looking forward to receiving project ideas that extend our relationship with the community beyond the school walls, and into the truly international world of which we are a part.

What are we looking for?
We are currently seeking proposals for the 2012-13 school year. This call for proposals is open to artists of all disciplines, including but not limited to, visual artists, playwrights, musicians, poets, dancers, filmmakers and new media artists.

We expect the selected artist to work closely with students and teachers from different levels of our school, ranging from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade. The artist will be expected to donate two final products to the Lycée at the conclusion of the residency:

  1. An artistic production created with the students
  2. Tangible documentation of the project

The contents and making of this final product are open to the imagination, as long as the artist actively engages the students, and the entire Lycée community, in the process of its creation.

Practical Conditions of the Program
The artist will be given a six week residency that could be spread throughout the school year or intensive, to create, install, perform, and/or display the work.

The artist will be given a generous stipend with travel and accommodation expenses covered. The residency will also include funds for materials to create the final product as well as an opening exhibition and several promotional materials to publicize the project.

The artist will formally meet with students, parents, and teachers to initially present the project, and will then work in close contact with teachers and students to bring the project to life. The artist will take part in two public events, one of which will take place outside of school.

Submission Guidelines

  1. Résumé
  2. An abstract of your proposed project
  3. Examples of previous work (or website address)
  4. Send to: Ghislaine Bazir, Assistant Head of School, at gbazir[at]lyceechicago.org under the subject line Artist in Residence.”

NYC: Alice Austen House Museum is now offering an Artist-in-Residence Program for Emerging Photographers

Alice Austen House Museum
Artist-in-Residence for Emerging Photographers

“When Alice Austen turned eleven in 1877 she received a camera from her uncle Oswald. Over the following half a century she developed into one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers. Her technical skills and strong aesthetic eye continue to fascinate us.

Thanks to a generous grant from New York Community Trust, the Austen House is able to offer two emerging photographers the opportunity to develop their technical skills and aesthetic sensibility over the course of nine months. It is our hope that the residency will launch a serious career.”

During the nine months, the artist-in-residence will:

  • Have both the financial and instructive support to develop his or her own style and aesthetic sensibility
  • Identify career goals and a plan to achieve them
  • Become intimately familiar with the life and work of Alice Austen
  • Participate in all functions of a museum, including develop and curate exhibitions and education programs
  • Be able to exhibit work at the Austen House.
  • Receive a stipend of $800 per month.

We are looking for:

  • College graduates, or candidates who can demonstrate the equivalence and maturity.
  • Candidates who are living on Staten Island, NY, or have a strong connection to the borough.
  • Photographers who are members of groups under-served by the museum community

To Apply
Please submit a resume and images as well as a statement explaining how you meet the eligibility criteria as well as how your residency would aid your career. Submissions can be digital or analog. There is no deadline, submissions are being accepted on a rolling basis.

“The Alice Austen House Museum promotes public awareness and scholarly study regarding the life and work of Alice Austen (1866 – 1952). Austen was one of America’s earliest and most prolific female photographers, and over the course of her life she captured about 8,000 images. Though she is best known for her documentary work, Austen was an artist with a strong aesthetic sensibility. Furthermore, she was a landscape designer, a master tennis player, and the first woman on Staten Island to own a car. She never married, and instead spent fifty years with Gertrude Tate. A rebel who broke away from the ties of her Victorian environment, Alice Austen created her own independent life.

Austen lived in “Clear Comfort,” a Victorian Gothic cottage that dates back to a 1690 one-room Dutch farmhouse. The house, which is one of the oldest in New York and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1973, overlooks the New York Narrows and has a stunning panoramic view of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Verrazano Bridge. For good reasons the New York City Parks Department voted it one of the most romantic sites in New York.”

Artists working in photography and related media are invited to continue work on existing projects, embark on new work, and/or contemplate their artistic goals.  Participants have 24-hour access to CPW’s workspace facilities as well as CPW’s professional resources.  Artists who participate in WOODSTOCK A-I-R have their work featured in a biannual exhibition in CPW’s galleries and/or have their work published in PHOTOGRAPHY Quarterly.  Additionally, participating artists’ work is archived on CPW’s website.  Professional development is fostered through scheduled studio visits between artists and CPW staff as well as with visiting critics.

The Critical Studies Residency invites writers/curators to take advantage of the solitude of Woodstock and utilize their time in completing scholarly research in the photographic arts (either contemporary or historic) with the goal of publication or exhibition.  CPW’s library, archives, collection, research tools, as well as the libraries of regional colleges are accessible to participating residents.  Critical Studies residents are provided the opportunity to publish their text in CPW’s afore mentioned publication, PHOTOGRAPHY Quarterly. “
