The Center for Photography at Woodstock
Deadline: January 16
WOODSTOCK AIR is a residency program supporting a dialogue around diversity, race, identity and beyond, for US-based artists and critics/scholars/curators working in photography.
WOODSTOCK AIR provides access to facilities, and financial, critical, and technical support. The drive for this program is to free the residents from the busy routines and demands of everyday life – and to provide a sanctuary for creativity. Each year CPW offers seven residencies for artists and one residency for a curator/critic. Residencies are four weeks in duration, with the possibility of two additional weeks, and can occur from May through September. Additional, partially supported residencies may be available throughout the rest of the year, pending funding.
There are generally two residencies per month, May through September. Residents are provided with workspace, critical and technical support, housing, stipends for food and travel, and honoraria. Residents working in photography and related media are invited to embark on new work, continue work on existing projects, and/or contemplate their artistic and/or scholarly goals. Residents have 24-hour access to CPW’s workspace facilities.
The Critical Studies Residency invites critics/scholars/curators to take advantage of the solitude of Woodstock and utilize their time completing scholarly research in the photographic arts (contemporary or historic) with the goal of publication or exhibition. CPW’s library, archives, and collection are available as tools for research.
