BECA FRAGMENTS (SPANISH ONLY). DEADLINE: DEC. 15, 2017

This is a Call for participation for a photography competition, unfortunately the contributions can be presented only in Spanish, however your  nationality doesn’t matter…


La Beca de Producción Fragments es una convocatoria pública con carácter anual que sirve de mecanismo para la selección de los ensayos y los autores que forman parte de la Colección Fragments. El objeto de la beca es la realización y producción de un ensayo visual, sobre la historia contemporánea de la Comunidad Valenciana, de acuerdo a los criterios establecidos en las bases.

La convocatoria se abre anualmente para la presentación de propuestas.

La candidatura galardonada con la Beca Fragments tendrá derecho a la percepción de una dotación económica para la realización del proyecto y a la publicación del ensayo en el contexto de la Colección Fragments, con el apoyo de la Unió de Periodistes Valencians y del equipo de trabajo del proyecto.

Modelo de proyecto

Se ha elegido el ensayo por su capacidad como herramienta para la investigación visual. Este formato permite aproximarse a todo tipo de fenómenos de acuerdo a la propia subjetividad y criterio del autor.

Creemos que este puede ser un modelo profesional adecuado para el ejercicio futuro del periodismo gráfico en términos de independencia, rentabilidad económica y capacidad de transformación.

Espíritu de la Beca de Producción

Esta beca, como parte del proyecto cultural Fragments, no pretender representar ni premiar las mejores prácticas periodísticas, sino servir de banco de pruebas para investigar la relación entre los lenguajes visuales y los hechos informativos y así proponer un mejor uso de las imágenes en contextos informativos y mejorar el ejercicio del periodismo gráfico.

Debido a esta naturaleza de “banco de pruebas” no se establecen apenas limitaciones para la participación o para el uso de técnicas, métodos y medios mas allá de los formatos establecidos en las bases. De la misma forma, se han establecido unos criterios de valoración que premian las prácticas mas conscientes y equilibradas.

Contenido de la Beca

La dotación económica consiste de dos partes: una asignación de 6.000 € en concepto de salario y gastos de realización, y la cobertura del presupuesto de producción de las versiones publicación y exposición del ensayo, de acuerdo al presupuesto disponible, y hasta un máximo de 7.000 €.

The Luminary Residency Program. Deadline: Sept. 15, 2017

Applications Open for 2018 Residencies

As a leading artist-run and artist-centric space, The Luminary supports exceptional ideas and initiatives by providing dedicated time, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment through our Residency Program. The program is open to all artists, performers, curators and critics, but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and experimental institutional practices.

Though open to all applicants, particular attention for 2018 will be given to the theme of New Constitutions: Commoning the Institution. For the year, we invite proposals that rethink the relationship between the individual and the institution, asking questions such as: How does an artist, art writer, performer or curator reshape an institution’s practice, its publics, or its politics? How do economies of care and collaboration reshape the institution? How do we work past the individual economies of the art world and advance new conceptions of the commons? Participants may propose to alter our administrative procedures or physical environment; propose new uses of space or initiate other spaces within our own; rework our public relations or intervene within our online presence; or thoroughly reimagine how we relate with artists and circulate within the art world.

In 2018, The Luminary will accept twelve residents in three phases: April and May; June and July; and September and October. Residencies are two weeks up to six weeks in duration and each resident will receive stipends, spacious private accommodations, shared studio space, and connections with local artists, curators and galleries. Each resident is expected to work towards an exhibition, publication, institutional collaboration or other public program during their residency.

Applications are due September 15th, 2017 for residencies taking place throughout 2018.

To apply, please fill out the online application.
