Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, Germany Residency

Artist Residency
Deadline: June 30

Kuenstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, Germany

To mark the 25th anniversary of the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral, artists are invited to submit applications for their international residential fellowships. Each fellowship is endowed with €1,400 a month.

Eligibility to apply for a Balmoral fellowship are visual artists of any age from Germany and around the world. 

The preconditions for applicants for the residential fellowships for visual artists are a completed course of study in art (M.F.A. or comparable) and three years of continuous artistic work after the conclusion of studies until the beginning of the fellowship. Applications are also possible for autodidacts distinguished by special artistic achievements, as documented by exhibitions and prizes. Knowledge of German or English is expected.

Theme: The title of this year’s theme, ‘KUR – Art of Travel’ is an allusion to the history of the town of Bad Ems and its tradition as a fashionable and sophisticated spa (Kur) resort in the 19th Century. Even then, artists were among its international guests. Where more than a century ago the former Hotel Schloss Balmoral was host to visitors from around the world to this spa resort, the present Künstlerhaus has for 25 years now been welcoming international fine artists. On the occasion of our own anniversary we invite you to examine the significance of (artists’) travel in the context of the mobile art scene and current artistic production.

Benefits and Requirements: Balmoral fellowships are residential fellowships; continuous presence is obligatory. The fellowships are endowed with 1,400€ a month. Two fellowships are awarded for the period of three months. Four fellowships are awarded for the period of nine months. All residential fellowships run from June each year.

All artists invited will have their registered residence in Bad Ems for the time of their stay (compulsory registration). Artists must be free of all professional commitments for the period of their fellowships.

The fellowship holders are provided free of charge with a furnished room in the artists’ residence for living and sleeping, with shower/WC and a studio. Due to the historic nature the building is not barrier-free and the apartments and studios in terms of their size and equipment are normally only suitable for one single person. The conditions of use are governed by the House Rules, which the fellowship holder must observe. The artists’ residence bears all ancillary costs including water, electricity and heating. The lounge, the dining room and the kitchen are for joint use. Pets are not admitted.

The fellows may use free of charge an in house wood workshop and a library containing approx. 6,000 books, mainly on modern and contemporary art, and the major art magazines.

Greenville, SC

Juror: Kat Kiernan, Editor-in-Chief, Don’t Take Pictures

The history of photography has a long tradition of representing women as subjects but has less to say about women as artists. Today, the roles of women in photography are both behind the camera and in front of it. Who understands women better than women? The female perspective offers an important view of the many facets of womanhood and womens’ role in society. This exhibition seeks women photographers who explore and celebrate the myriad ways that they render female-identifying subjects. 

35-40 Selected images will hang in the SE Center’s main gallery space for approximately one month with the opportunity to be invited for a solo show at a later date.

San Francisco Center for the Book: (retro)(intro)spection

(retro)(intro)spection
Deadline: September 1

San Francisco Center for the Book
San Francisco, CA

Jurors:
Alisa Golden, author of Making Handmade Books
Lisa Beth Robinson, Somnambulist Tango Press
Steve Woodall, Achenbach Collections Specialist, Legion of Honor Museum

What’s in a word? What about a prefix?  Retro- can be used to describe furniture, artifacts, graphic design, fashion, and interiors. Retroactive (taking effect from a date in the past), retrocede (to go back), retrocognition (backward knowing) and retrograde (moving backwards) are words that lead us to the past where might learn something about where we are in the here-and-now.

The etymology of intro- encourages artists to look within, gain and gather perspective. What about the suffix -spection? It means to look, see or observe, having evolved from the Latin Specere (to look at) and the Proto-Indo-European language root spek (to observe).

Artists are frequently inspired by the past and aim to make work which speaks to future audiences, subsequent generations. Tandem processes of introspective questioning and retrospective storytelling often come together in the artist book format—giving reader and creator the opportunity for personal reflection.

Artists books tell us stories by using narrative, structure, materials. Each of these aspects help the artist to communicate a perspective, one that is singularly unique to themselves and the work. (retro)(intro)spection seeks to explore the crossroads where artists books and artistic process intersect. When do our amorphous ideas become real, at what point? What is the role of introspection and one’s personal past when applied to artists books? In the act of looking back as well as in, the curators hope that artists will be inspired by their body of work, regarding the path or discovering the throughline that brings them to the present, creating work to speak not only to future audiences, but also to subsequent generations.

Media: This exhibit is open to handmade book and paper arts related works created either in edition or as a one-of-a-kind work. Artists’ books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, installations, zines, and broadsides are all encouraged.

Diffusion X, print annual

Diffusion X
Deadline: June 17

Diffusion Magazine

Editors: Blue Mitchell & Liz Kale

Join us in celebrating Diffusion’s TEN year anniversary! It’s a milestone we are very proud of. In an effort to reflect our appreciation for our reader’s support and the photographic community in general, our theme for our tenth annual is:

A Love Letter to the Crafters of Photography

In our podcast, The Diffusion Tapes, the topic of “the photographic community” often comes up with my guests and how their peer’s support and collaboration feed their projects. This is what Diffusion has been for me the past ten years, a vehicle for collaboration, a venue for personal curatorial expression, and most importantly my lifeline to some the finest people I’ve ever met.

And although I’m here for the art, I am biased to the people. I celebrate you.

So now, let us celebrate some art. A love letter to the crafters, an homage to the history, the celebration of bonds made, you know, all the warm and fuzzies. For this milestone issue, we intend to focus more on storytelling and less on abstractions. Help us spin a yarn. How about in ten chapters? Seems apropos to me.

—Blue Mitchell, Publisher, Diffusion

About: Diffusion is primarily a limited run print publication published by One Twelve Publishing. We strive to spotlight artists pushing the boundaries of standard photographic processes in a beautifully designed annual book.

Deadline: June 3

Blue Sky Gallery
Portland, OR

Blue Sky: Ahead is a two month exhibition series, which celebrates the legacy of Blue Sky’s founders and highlights the future of photography in Oregon, as seen through the eyes of Blue Sky’s founders.

Founded in 1975 with the hard work and unemployment checks of five twenty-something photographers, Blue Sky is now 44 years old. With this exhibition, we seek to honor our past, and think about the future.

We are honoring our past by holding an exhibition of work by our five founders in October 2019, our birthday month. Blue Sky will utilize both of its galleries for Blue Sky Ahead: Founders, an exhibition of work by Blue Sky’s founders Christopher Rauschenberg, Craig Hickman, Robert DiFranco, Ann Hughes, and Terry Toedtemeier.  

Then, in honor of Blue Sky’s 44th birthday, we look to the future of photography, as represented by people younger than the organization. In November 2019, Blue Sky will utilize both of its galleries for Blue Sky Ahead: Future, an exhibition of five Oregon photographic artists, ages 44 and younger, chosen from this call to represent the future of photography in Oregon. Blue Sky’s founders will select from the open call for the exhibition. Prudence Roberts will select on behalf of Terry Toedtemeier, and Blue Sky’s Exhibition Committee will also select one artist. 

Programming and Traveling Exhibition

An exhibition that combines highlights of these two shows will travel to Umpqua Valley Arts Association (Roseburg, OR) in early 2020. We will also be creating an exhibition catalog, including images from each artist, artist statements, and essays. Blue Sky will host 3 or more events during this two-month exhibition. We welcome artist participation if possible (not required).

Qualifications

  • All applicants must live in Oregon and be 44 years old or younger at the time of submission.

  • To be considered for the exhibition, all artwork must be photo- or video-based.

Financial Considerations

Each artist will receive at $500 honorarium for their participation in the exhibition. No further funds are available. Artists are responsible for shipping or delivering their work to Blue Sky. Blue Sky will be responsible for returning work to artists at the conclusion of the exhibition at Umpqua Valley Arts Association.

Artists are welcome to offer their work for sale while on view at Blue Sky. Please keep in mind that Blue Sky takes a 50% commission on all sales.
