“We, Women” for women, transgender, and non-binary photographers in the US. Deadline: June 30, 2019

LARGEST SOCIAL IMPACT PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT BY WOMXN IN THE U.S. LAUNCHES TODAY WITH AN OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS
United Photo Industries and Women Photograph are proud to announce We, Women, a nationwide platform to support women, transgender, and non-binary photographers who combine images and grassroots strategies to create empathy and social impact on critical issues across the United States, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
The United States is more divided than ever, and we’re currently witnessing the highest level of civic engagement in generations. We, Women projects will fuel the movement by re-framing issues and highlighting underrepresented narratives that resist and interrogate social and political landscapes while promoting empathy and unity.
We, Women launches today with an Open Call for Artists. The first phase of this developing project will feature up to 20 projects launching in 2020.
Each artist will receive:

A cash grant of $5,000-$10,000 for the continuation of existing work or the creation of a new project in a community they have a demonstrated commitment to

Mentorship and production support from We, Women leaders, project partners, and advisors

Promotion and marketing

We, Women exhibition at Photoville Fall 2020 in New York City

We, Women believes photographs are only the beginning of a creative and socially-minded process. We support work rooted in collaboration, blurring the lines between author, photographed community, and audience. We support a range of artistic and documentary approaches including photography, video, interactive technology, and the use of historical archives.

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.

Curatorial & Research Fellowships. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2018

SPECIAL CLARK FELLOWSHIPS

The Clark Art Institute’s Research and Academic Program (RAP) awards funded residential fellowships to national and international scholars, critics, and curators of exceptional promise and accomplishment. Proposed research projects should display a critical commitment to innovative inquiry in the history, theory, and interpretation of art and visual culture.
In addition to the semester-long Clark fellowships, RAP offers a number of special fellowships for specific research interests.

These include:
Short-term Curatorial Fellowships
Available in September, October, and November, these new month-long fellowships are designed for curators, offering a period of time that is more suited for museum professionals. The fellowship provides the opportunity to carry out research while participating in the intellectual and residential life of the Clark and RAP.

Center for Spain in America Fellowship
This one-semester fellowship is intended to support the study of all aspects of Spanish art from the early medieval period to the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the worldwide impact of Spanish art and artists.

Mellon Network Fellowship
This fellowship supports a Clark residency of one semester for a scholar involved in a project addressing communication and technology—of all eras—across the visual humanities. The award also supports critical thinking about the changing states of media in art-historical research today.

All Clark fellows are provided offices in the open-stack, 280,000-volume art history library of the Manton Research Center; apartments in the gracious residence across the street from our 140-acre campus; reimbursement of travel expenses; and a stipend.

Applications are due by October 15, 2018
