New Artists Residency Program

WHAT: New Artists Residency Program
WHERE: Emmanuel College
WHEN: 12 March 2010 (deadline); Summer Term 2010
WHO: ceramics; printmaking; photography; and non-specified medium but related in some way to issues of social justice

For the first time, in summer 2010, Emmanuel College in Boston will be offering a summer artists residency program for four artists. We will seek one artist from each of the following categories: ceramics; printmaking; photography; and non-specified medium but related in some way to issues of social justice.

The residency will provide four artists with individual studio space in the Art Department for a two month period during the months of June and July. (Arrival between 6/14 Monday-6/18 Friday, departure between 8/16 Monday-8/20 Friday.)

The program will provide artists with access to Art Department studios and living quarters in the Emmanuel dorms. Each artist will also receive a $2,000 stipend. In return for their residency, each artist will be required to complete the following: during their residency, devote two hours of their time to a presentation on their work to members of the Emmanuel community; give an artist's talk some time during the 2010-11 academic year to the general public on the work completed at Emmanuel and its relationship to their larger body of work; and donate one work of art completed while at Emmanuel to the College.

Selection of Artists: Artists should submit a *portfolio, c.v. and statement of intent to the Art Department by March 12, 2010. Artists will be notified of their selection by April 2, 2010.
Artists selected for the social justice category must demonstrate a serious commitment to social justice either through the subjects of their art (e.g. addressing issues such as poverty, inequality, homelessness) or through their art making strategies (e.g. community-based projects).

*Portfolio requirement: 15-20 jpeg images of current work on a CD (Each image should be at least 300dpi, 6"x4.5"). Emmanuel College reserves the right to use images of works by selected artists for advertising purposes.
