Newcastle, ME 04553


REQUIREMENTS:

Total Media - Minimum: 10, Maximum: 10 


Many of Watershed’s summer residency sessions are organized by artists—who propose a theme related to clay and recruit a handful of other artists to join them for two or three weeks. We call these Artists Invite Artists (AIA) Groups. The balance of participants in each AIA session register independently, often drawn by a shared interest in the session theme. Once at Watershed, all artists work side-by-side in the Watershed studios, forming one community.

An AIA session provides an opportunity to gather with colleagues you know or to spend time with artists whose work you’ve admired from afar. The lead artist and group of invited artists can collectively shape a creative thematic retreat without the pressure and preparation involved in leading a typical training or workshop. AIA sessions are inspired and guided by the leading artists, but time is spent in shared exploration and dialogue in the studio rather than in formal instruction. While clay is core to the Watershed experience, some AIA artists work in other media as well.

To submit a proposal, you must develop a session theme and recruit at least four (and up to 8) other artists to participate in the session.  As the AIA leader, you attend the residency free of charge and your AIA invited artists receive a 15% discount off their residency fees.

Applications to organize a residency are due annually on June 15 in the year prior to the residency. Applicants will be notified in August of their status. For more information on how AIA sessions work, please visit the Watershed website at http://www.watershedceramics.org/residencies/organize-a-residency/

1. Statement of Purpose

The New Art Center's Curatorial Opportunity Program (COP) supports independent curators of contemporary art by making diverse visions possible in a non-profit and alternative exhibition space. The program investigates contemporary culture through the visual arts, exhibits strong curatorial voices, and encourages the timely examination of new ideas and perspectives.

The New Art Center (NAC) are currently accepting curatorial proposals for 5- to 7-week group exhibitions from September 2019 – May 2020 at the New Art Center in Newton. We will only accept electronic submissions received by June 5, 2018. No extensions will be granted and no paper applications will be accepted.

2. Background Information

Since 1991, NAC has used its Main Gallery for group exhibitions (two artists or more) curated by an exhibiting artist or independent curator. We continue this tradition through the COP, our annual public call for curatorial proposals.

Our Main Gallery is one of the few mid-sized nonprofit exhibition spaces in New England, which attracts over 5,000 visitors each year. The gallery occupies the hall of a former church, with 25-foot vaulted ceilings, substantial natural light, and several movable wall panels. The space is approximately 2,500 square feet, with an average width of 39 feet and an average length of 40+ feet.

A visit to the gallery prior to application is advised and encouraged, if possible. Two curatorial workshops, led by local curators, will be held on March 14 and April 25 from 7-9 PM. Prospective applicants are encouraged (though not required) to attend one of these workshops to hear more about the curatorial process and have questions about the program answered by NAC staff. To register, visit https://newartcenter.org/index.php/workshops-products/

The COP furthers the NAC’s mission to offer exceptional opportunities to make, exhibit, view, think about and talk about art. COP exhibitions and associated public programs are the foundation of our gallery education and outreach programs and enhance the learning available in our studio classes and workshops, which educate over 2,500 students annually and sustain a faculty of over 40 professional artists.

3. Scope of Work

Required:

  • Proposals must include works by two artists or more.
  • Proposals must include one public program with an educational component; more than one is encouraged (see ‘proposed public programs’ under Criteria, below).
  • In proposals including one’s own work, that work should not be the main focus of the exhibition, and should only be included if it supports the thesis. Artists wishing to include their own artwork in the proposal must be willing to eliminate their own work if the panel feels that such a cut would strengthen the exhibition. 

Additional Considerations:                

  • The proposed exhibitions can include works in a single medium or several media, from painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and video to installation, performance, and sound art. A variety of media or diverse use of similar media is recommended.
  • Exhibitions may be organized around medium or process
  • Exhibitions may investigate social, cultural, historical, theoretical or political concepts
  • Strong applications are centered on a curatorial concept that ties the work together (see "4.Decision Criteria")

NAC Support
For each exhibition, the New Art Center provides a curator stipend to be applied to exhibition-related expenses at the curator's discretion. The stipend is awarded after the opening reception. Curators and artists are encouraged to consult with the NAC to seek outside funding to enhance their exhibition program(s) or invitation, or to provide for additional advertising. The NAC receives a 50% commission on sales of any works in the exhibitions. 

The NAC provides:

  • a set budget for printing of a postcard invitation
  • a $1,000 USD curator stipend
  • public relations support such as sending press releases to press venues
  • advertisements, extensive listings, emails to our 10,000+ person mailing list, and posts to our social media feeds
  • duplication of material for distribution at the exhibition
  • gallery signage
  • insurance up to $150,000 in total for art work while it is at the NAC
  • physical assistance in preparing the space and installing the work
  • an opening reception with refreshments

The NAC does not provide (or pay for):

  • transportation of artworks or artists to or from the NAC
  • installation construction beyond basic installation and wall configuration

4. Decision Criteria

  • Quality of the work to be shown: Note - though submission of artists' resumes is required, artists who lack substantial exhibition records and experience will still be considered.
  • Clarity, subtlety, and power of the underlying curatorial concept: Proposed exhibitions must articulate a clear central idea, convincingly supported by the work included. This idea, or thesis, must be expressed in a brief curator's statement of concept. This is required whether the central idea is simply strong aesthetic resonance between works in a single medium or complex theoretical or academic dialogue presented across multiple media.
  • Proposed public programs: The Curatorial Opportunity Program helps advance the New Art Center’s educational mission by using the galleries to enhance the experience of NAC’s students and guests. Proposals must include at least one educational component connected with the exhibition, the goal of which is to place the exhibition, the art practices, and the curatorial practice into the larger context of contemporary art for a general public. This can consist of a panel discussion, gallery talk, ongoing interactive presentations, activities geared toward engaging the NAC’s daily student population or related presentations and/or performances in other mediums.
  • Capability of the curator to carry out the project: In addition to working with the Exhibitions Director on the exhibition design and installation, curators are also responsible for communicating with the artists. This includes assuring timely delivery of press materials, adherence to agreed-upon artwork delivery and pickup times, etc. The curator and artists are expected to work with the Exhibitions Manager to assure that all necessary tasks are accomplished and deadlines are met.

5. Eligibility                               
All artists and curators are eligible regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, belief, national origin, sexual orientation or physical abilities. While artists and curators from the greater Boston area are encouraged to participate, there are no geographic restrictions. Please keep in mind that the NAC does not pay for travel expenses or shipping of artwork (or insurance of artwork in transit to or from NAC).

Proposals will not be considered for one-person exhibitions or if they envision a general call to artists. Additionally, proposals will not be considered if they lack a statement of concept; require financial support from the Center beyond the usual stipend and services (see Support); are late or incomplete; are inappropriately scaled for the Main Gallery (see Gallery Space) or have prohibitively complex and/or expensive installation requirements.

The project will support an artwork that will utilize and/or incorporate durable natural materials that will enhance the High Desert Rose Garden.

BUDGET: A maximum of $50,000.00 is available to the selected artist to design, fabricate, transport and install the work(s) at the BioPark Botanic Garden’s rose garden. (1% for Art Funds: BioPark)

Call for Artists: Expressions of Clinician Well-Being and Burnout (Washington D.C.)

Expressions of Clinician Well-Being and Burnout
For International artists
 

The National Academy of Medicine is calling on artists of all kinds to explore what clinician burnout, clinician well-being, and clinician resilience looks, feels and sounds like to people across the country.  nam.edu/ExpressClinicianWellBeing

Clinician burnout can have serious, wide-ranging consequences, from reduced job performance and high turnover rates to—in the most extreme cases—medical error and clinician suicide. On the other hand, clinician well-being supports improved patient-clinician relationships, a high-functioning care team, and an engaged and effective workforce. In other words, when we invest in the well-being of clinicians—doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, medical trainees, and more—everyone wins.

Supporting clinician well-being requires sustained attention and action at organizational, state, and national levels, as well as investment in research and information-sharing to advance evidence-based solutions. More broadly, sustained change requires diverse, collective action and the experiences and voices of many.

Use any art form to show us what clinician burnout, clinician resilience and/or well-being means to you. Whether it’s a depiction of how you de-stress from a busy day, how you feel when taking care of patients, or a picture of your favorite clinician, show us—what does clinician well-being look, feel, and sound like to you? Everyone has a stake in this issue—what’s yours?

The well-being of our clinicians impacts everyone. This art show will promote greater awareness and understanding of barriers to clinician well-being—and solutions that promise a brighter future. 

Your art could be featured in a permanent online gallery and/or an in-person show hosted by the National Academy of Medicine in May 2018.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Practices, Circulation and Legacies: Photographic Histories in Central and Eastern Europe

The City Museum of Ljubljana, Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana, Gosposka 15, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Since its very beginnings, professional as well as non-professional photographers have used photography in Central and Eastern Europe to record all aspects of life. Photography has thus participated in spreading and shaping knowledge about the region, its people, and the rest of the world. In spite of the central role photography has played in the diverse socio-cultural environments of Central and Eastern Europe, research on its history in this part of the continent is still little appreciated and remains understudied.

The 2018 conference in Ljubljana will be the third in a series of international conferences initiated in Warsaw in 2016 with the aim of developing and promoting interdisciplinary studies about photography and its histories in the region.

In 2018, we seek to enhance understandings of the mechanisms and realities that have influenced the development of local photographic practices and their relationship with uses of photography elsewhere. We also aspire to expand knowledge about social and cultural customs that facilitated the circulation and legacies of photographs throughout the medium’s history in the region. Paper proposals may therefore address a range of interrelated topics, including but not limited to:

- The history and state of photographic collections/archives, the opportunities they present and the challenges they face
- The history and state of local research practices and academic discourses on photography (research topics, theory and methodology)
- The circulation of photographs and photographic images in public and private spheres and their impact on collective imaginations in Central and Eastern Europe (e.g. the uses of photography in art, media, politics…)

We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations from scholars working in areas such as: photography, art history and theory, visual sociology, anthropology, museology, philosophy, ethnography, cultural studies, visual and media studies, communications, and fine and graphic arts.

To propose a paper, please send your abstract (no less than 250 and no more than 300 words including the title) by the 31st December 2017 to photographycee@liberproarte.eu

In addition, please include a short biographical note of no more than 150 words with full affiliation, the title of your presentation and contact details as a separate document.

The presentation will be given in English

Notification of acceptance: 1 February 2018
