Call for Residency Proposals: Counterpublics. Deadline: Jan 15, 2019  

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.

The Summer Institute for Visual Arts at Drury University is currently seeking applications for Summer 2015 Visiting Artist Fellowships.

SIVA supports innovation and cross-disciplinary activity, and encourages participants to utilize the resources of the university to inform and deepen their artistic vision.

Visiting Artist Fellowships are awarded to internationally recognized artists representing a range of

Fellowship Award
Each Summer Institute of Visual Arts Visiting Artist Fellow receives $4500.00 USD in compensation to manage a 5-week Visiting Artist Studio course (Monday-Thursday, 1-5pm),
offer a one-day technical workshop and give a public lecture. Fellows additionally receive on-campus housing, a private studio in the Warmack Faculty Studios building and exhibition opportunities when available. Fellows are expected to be in residence full-time.
