CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Georgia Fee Artist / Writer Residency. Deadline: August 31, 2014

The Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency has been established in memory of ArtSlant’s Founder who passed away December 8th, 2012. Georgia was dedicated to supporting and investing in young artists and writers, and she had a deep connection with the city of Paris. This residency, which offers artists and writers the opportunity to create work in Paris, has been created in Georgia’s memory.

The goal of the Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency in Paris is to support and invest in emerging artists and writers, to provide an opportunity for them to advance their work and explore and engage with the cultural landscape of Paris, to encourage experimentation, and to increase exposure of their work to an international audience.

The Residency is open to visual artists of all mediums, art writers and critics, 24 years or older. Recent graduates are especially encouraged to apply. The selection will be made based on the merit of past work and the potential for future success, the ability to independently develop new work, and the proposed project’s relevance to the city of Paris.

Recipients will be required to maintain a blog, which will be posted on ArtSlant.

The Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency in Paris provides the recipient with lodging for 2 months in an apartment in the 14th arrondissement, travel to and from Paris, and a stipend to be used for studio space, materials, and other costs.

The application period for the Winter session is open from August 1, 2014 to August 31, 2013. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed via Skype. The recipient of the Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency will be announced in October. The Winter residency takes place during the months of January and February, 2015.

Submission fee: $25

OPEN CALL: Sketch commission for large-scale public artwork in Central Stockholm. Deadline: August 8, 2014

Stockholm County Council invites professional artists to apply for a sketch assignment for a public art commission at the upper part of the façade of Building 74 in the New Technology, Quarter, to be built in the hospital area at Södersjukhuset.

The Stockholm South General Hospital, or Sődersjukhuset, is located in the heart of the city. It will be modernised and expanded to cope with the growing population of Stockholm. The New Technology Quarter, a building with an area of 11,000 square metres, is scheduled to be completed in 2017. It will become a focal point in the hospital and its adjacent residential neighborhoods, and will form part of the Sődermalm cityscape.

The sketch commission should lead to an artwork that is characterised by strong artistic value and bears complex content. It should lend itself to thought and gives the site character. The finalised artwork should also be permanent. The finalised artwork will be an integral part of the architecture and its immediate environments. Artists are invited to shape the prefabricated cast concrete elements that form the basis of the facades’ surface. It is possible to add other types of materials, as well as lighting, to the artwork. The artwork should preferably be visible both day and night.

Three artists will be invited for sketch commission. Based on the sketches, one artist will be selected to carry out the commission and finalise the artwork.

Sketch assignment: 50,000 SEK (5.416,50 €) excluding VAT.

The cost range for the performance of the public art commission, including the sketch assignment, is calculated at 3,050,000 SEK (330.406,50 €) excluding VAT. Everything connected with the execution of the artwork and costs associated with completion, such as the artist’s own project planning time, material costs, mounting arrangements, subcontractors, travel, transport, insurance, the artist’s own fees for executing the work and artistic fees, must fit within that range. An environmental check-list and maintenance instructions are also included in the artist’s obligations. Advice for maintenance and arrangements for maintenance must also be indicated in the budget. The basic cost of the white matrix cast precast concrete panels is paid by the construction project.
