Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC) Residencies

General Call for Applications

Next Deadline: April 1, 2012 for 2013 Residency Schedule

The Klondike Institute of Art and Culture (KIAC) is now accepting applications from visual artists, media artists, and interdisciplinary artists for its 2013 Artist in Residence Program.

The residence accommodates up to two artists concurrently for research, development and production of ongoing or new bodies of work.

Artists may also have the opportunity to facilitate outreach programs such as talks, workshops and exhibitions, intended to promote interaction and professional development, and provide access to a diverse range of contemporary arts practices and theories within the community.

General Call Residencies will run April 21 through June 30, and from August 21 through December 31, 2013. Participants are responsible for all travel and personal expenses including food and materials related to their work.

KIAC accepts applications from visual artists, media artists and interdisciplinary artists, as well as curators. Consideration will be given to professional, established and emerging Canadian and international artists. All disciplines will be considered including but not limited to: Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Sculpture, Ceramics, Design, Architecture, Photography, Installation, Performance, Video and Film, Filmmaking, New Media, and Audio. KIAC encourages applications from artists of diverse cultural and regional communities of Canada.

There is no fee charged or stipend paid for a residency. Participants are responsible for the cost of all travel to and from Dawson City as well as all materials related to their artwork and for personal living expenses including food. Artists in Residence are asked to provide one free public talk during their residency. Artists who provide additional outreach programming through KIAC will be paid accordingly within the current KIAC fee structure. All successful applicants are encouraged to apply for travel grants from the Canada Council for the Arts or their provincial/regional arts councils; the success rate of travel grants to our residency program are very high.

The Artist in Residence facilities are located in the Macaulay Residence. Constructed in 1901, this 2-story home is now owned by Parks Canada as part of the Dawson Historical Complex National Historic Site of Canada. The building can accommodate two individual artists concurrently. Residents are provided with an individual studio space and bedroom, along with shared living room, bathroom and kitchen areas. The house has full laundry facilities. The studios measure 16′ x 14′ and 13′ x 12′ respectively and are provided with some natural light and additional portable studio lights and basic furnishings. Each studio comes with basic hand tools. There may be limited access, by special request, to additional KIAC and Yukon SOVA facilities and equipment.

2013 The Natural & The Manufactured: An ODD Gallery and KIAC Artist in Residence

Thematic Project

The ODD Gallery seeks proposals from visual artists working in all media for this yearly thematic project, which consists of two exhibition-creation residencies leading to one gallery-based and one outdoor installation. New projects and site-specific ideas are encouraged, but previous work and continuing projects may also be proposed.

The Natural & Manufactured residency and exhibition project runs July 1 through August 21, 2013.

Applications to the N&M will be considered for BOTH residency and exhibition components for July and August of each year. Project activities are presented as part of KIAC’s Yukon Riverside Arts Festival in mid-August. The N&M re-examines the various cultural and economic values imposed on the environment, while exploring alternative social, economic and aesthetic strategies towards a re-interpretation of landscape and social infrastructure.

Project activities include two six-week creation/installation residency periods, two exhibition projects, opening receptions, artist talks and guest lectures.

Please mark your application “Natural & Manufactured Residency.” Artists applying for this thematic project may also apply for residencies under the General Call for Submissions.
