Residency Program, St. Louis, for early 2014. Deadline: June 30, 2013

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: The Luminary Residency Program – OpenAiR

This summer will start a very exciting new phase for The Luminary Center for the Arts. Re-launching in July 2013, The Luminary Residency Program will be comprised of four interrelated programs that will uniquely support the research, development and presentation of artistic and curatorial practices that utilize innovative forms and unconventional economic and academic structures.

OpenAiR
OpenAiR supports exceptional emerging artists and curators engaging the world of contemporary art and criticism by providing dedicated time and a supportive working environment. OpenAiR is open to all artistic and curatorial practices but uniquely supports the research, development and production of experimental projects that engage (but are not limited to) alternative spaces and models, archives, publications and writing, collaborations, artist-led projects and socially engaged practices.

Residents are provided well-equipped private studios, housing and modest stipends. Residencies are available year-round from one week up to three months and awarded in two sessions (Fall and Spring).

OpenAiR applications are due June 30th for our next Spring Session: January-June 2014.

To apply, please download the electronic application and email it with all supporting materials to residency@theluminaryarts.com <mailto:residency@theluminaryarts.com> . Please note there is a non-refundable $25 application fee.

Residency Program

The Luminary’s Residency Program supports exceptional emerging artists and curators by providing dedicated time and a supportive working environment including well-equipped private studios with 24 hour access and wireless internet, additional shared workspace, and access to AV equipment and woodshop. Starting July 2013, The Luminary will also offer onsite housing and award a number of stipends.

In addition to visual artists, The Luminary now accepts applications from emerging curators interested in engaging the world of contemporary art and criticism. The Luminary Residency Program for curators supports the research, development and production of experimental projects that engage (but are not limited to) alternative spaces and models, archives, publications and writing, collaborations, artist-led projects and socially engaged practices.

The Luminary offers residencies year-round from one week up to three months.

FAQs

What expectations does The Luminary have of their artists and curators in residence?
The Luminary Residency Program participants are expected to use the time and space awarded to them and be an engaged member of The Luminary community. Opportunities for public engagement are available and a small number, such as Open Studios and lectures, may be requested. Residents are also asked to donate work in proportion to the financial support received during their residency.
Does The Luminary offer stipends, housing or grants for travel to and from the residency?

The Luminary has an evolving but finite amount of support we can offer to residents each session. International applicants and those with significant need should apply early for their intended residency to allow ample time to arrange and assist with support. The Luminary Center for the Arts has launched a capital campaign to raise funds to purchase and renovate a 13,000 sq/ft complex to serve as its new home. Please note that due to this impending move we will be unable to offer residency housing until 2013 when new housing will be available on-site.

Does The Luminary accept applications from collaborative teams?
Yes, The Luminary does accept applications from collaborative teams. Applying collaborative teams are asked to submit individual resumes or CV.
Are students allowed to participate in the residency program?

Current students may not participate in the residency program but may apply for residencies that begin after their schooling is complete.
What is the community of St. Louis like?

St. Louis has an active arts community with many galleries, DIY spaces and free museums. The Luminary is located in an active urban environment with access to public transit, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and public parks. The Luminary’s Residency Program always includes local artists and there are many options to get involved in the greater arts community. For a more in-depth view of the St. Louis art community please see Temporary Art Review’s St. Louis page: http://temporaryartreview.com/saintlouis

Cord Prize for Contemporary Art Photography. Deadline: June 2, 2013

Cord Prize
Announcing the Cord Prize, a new international contemporary art award established to support and acknowledge the practice of early and mid-career visual artists. The award comprises an individual first prize of $10,000, second prize of $1,000, and third prize of $500. Additionally, twenty-two artists will be selected for online exhibition and a piece of writing will be commissioned from the award jurors.

The inaugural Cord Prize – Contemporary art photography

Photography has become a universally accepted, unchallenged, medium of contemporary art. Concomitantly, photography’s capacity to influence our everyday lives has become exponentially important with the ubiquity of visual social media and the opening up of the possibilities for us to communicate and disseminate our photographic images independently of institutional support. It could be said that the ubiquity which photography has achieved, its establishment in the contemporary art canon, is both a blessing and a problem – marking a new beginning, a place to start from all over again, yet more challenging than ever to make meaningful photographic work that resonates in cultural space and will endure. The inaugural Cord Prize invites early and mid-career artists who are working within the field of photography to apply.

The brief

Against this setting, applicants to the inaugural prize are invited to submit up to 16 images of current work from a wholly or partially photo-based practice, using any photographic process or medium. Applications should be accompanied by a resume and text of up to 400 words detailing your research and practice. You may also wish to contextualise your work within what you see as the significant cultural issues at play within contemporary art photography.
Submissions open on 15th April, closing on 2nd June 2013.

Jurors

We are extremely pleased and excited to announce the jurors for this first edition of the award are the hugely respected and admired curators and writers Diana Edkins and Charlotte Cotton.

The jurors’ selection will be announced on Monday 17th June.

About

The Cord Prize, established by UK games industry veteran EA Lindsay, will be followed later in the year by the launch of CordContemporary, an online only gallery, presenting a portfolio of invited artists, partially selected from submissions to the various editions of the award. The ambition of CordContemporary is to establish the online gallery, with a programme of exhibitions supported by critical writing and serious curatorial practice, as a viable cultural presence; and a place to look forward to visiting as one would a physical gallery.
The Cord Prize will be awarded twice-annually, alternating focus on specific disciplines, with curated themes and critical surveys; and with photo-based practice as a recurring thread.
