Everest Pipkin, an artist who resides in Pittsburgh, has compiled a spreadsheet called The Big Artist Opportunities List, compiling over 370 artist residencies and similar opportunities. Mostly for the US, but also some in Japan, Germany and other countries.
What is the advantage of this list over established search engines and databases on residencies? Not sure, maybe because you have it all in one place and can save it on your computer. So let’s say thanks to Everest for sharing this with all of us.
In the context of its art and research residency programme, ZK/U offers a ‘living & working’ space from artists, scholars and practitioners involved in exploring the idea and reality of “the city”. The programme is open to contemporary artistic positions that are conceptual, interventionist and contextual.
Selected projects are often informed by theoretical and practice-based critiques within the fields of urban research, geography, anthropology, urbanism, architecture and the humanities. With collaborative practices and peer-to-peer learning at its core, the residency is about exchanging with and learning from other artists and practitioners. It is a space for urban experimentation where fellows connect through common themes and interests.
Residents are encouraged to involve themselves with ZK/U’s programme and to propose their own formats.
Within the frame of this Open Call, ZK/U invites applications around it’s current discourses of the conceptual framework and additionally encourages investigations into the following themes:
- alternative practices of knowledge production, mediation and new formats of cross-sectoral conversations
- inclusive modes of engagement in democratic decision making processes and grassroot movements
- connecting global communities through strategies of local non-monetary economies and digital governance
- prototyping digital and spatial infrastructure for a future based on the common good

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Every year since 2011, BMW Art & Culture has given an artist the opportunity to produce a photography project in a three-month residency. The project is undertaken at the GOBELINS School of Visual Arts, which has been involved in the Residency for the past two years, following a six-year partnership with the Nicéphore Niépce Museum.
The BMW Residency results in the production of works created with the support of the artistic director, François Cheval and GOBELINS staff. A selection of works produced during the Residency will be exhibited at two major photography events for which BMW is a partner – the 2020 Rencontres d’Arles (between the opening week in July and the end of August) and 2020 Paris Photo fair.
Works produced during the BMW Residency will be presented in a book included published by éditions Trocadéro, in the BMW Art & Culture collection.
The BMW Residency will take place between September and December 2019.
Paris – BMW Art & Culture permet, chaque année depuis 2011, à un artiste photographe de réaliser un projet photographique au cours d’un séjour de trois mois de résidence. Le projet est réalisé à GOBELINS, l’école de l’image, partenaire depuis deux ans, après six ans de partenariat avec le musée Nicéphore Niépce.
La Résidence BMW aboutit à la production d’œuvres réalisées avec le soutien de François Cheval, directeur artistique et de l’équipe de GOBELINS. Une sélection des œuvres produites en résidence sera exposée dans deux évènements photographiques majeurs dont BMW est partenaire : aux Rencontres d’Arles*, de la semaine d’ouverture en juillet à fin août 2020 et à Paris Photo* 2020.
Call for Residency Proposals: Counterpublics
We are excited to open our call for proposals for our next residency session: Counterpublics.
The session will take place from April 1st through July 31st, 2019 in parallel with a large-scale public art platform, Counterpublic, which will commission artists, activists, designers, choreographers, writers, and performers to activate storefronts, parks, and gathering spaces throughout our neighborhood, embedding art directly within the everyday life of the community.
Counterpublic attempts to expand spaces of dissent, dialogue, care, and complexity within The Luminary’s immediate community through responsive commissions and intentional intersections with this space. We encourage applications that engage communal land use and neighborhood change, monument-making for marginalized communities, choreographies of resistance, and the decolonization of public space.
Projects may take the form of:
- Site-responsive installations, exhibitions, performances, screenings, durational projects and other forms to be situated in the everyday spaces of our neighborhood
- Writing and Publications to engage the session’s concept through contextual criticism, embedded critique, and responsive modes of publication
Selected residents will be commissioned to create new work or re-stage previous work that directly engages this platform. Residents will receive a stipend of up to $1,500 (depending on duration and proposed project), travel stipend, housing, and dedicated staff support. Additional project support may be available in select circumstances.
Applications will be reviewed as received with a final deadline on January 15th.
To find out more and to apply online, please visit our website.
Help support the construction of our new live/work studios that will host this program on-site for the first time in our history. This will be a new home for art in St. Louis, supporting leading artists, critics, and curators to make extensive impact on our area ecosystem for years to come.
