CALL FOR APPLICANTS : Work in Progress Residency

CALL FOR APPLICANTS : Work in Progress Residency

This Deadline Expired: Monday, November 13, 2017

The Work in Progress (WiP) at the Textile Arts Center is a behind-the-scenes look into the studio practice of contemporary artists and designers, to engage the public in a dialogue surrounding innovation in the field of textiles.

Program Overview
The selected artist will take over TAC Manhattan’s storefront window for one month and (re)create an active studio of their work. Displays will feature tools, materials, and their artwork in various stages of progress. The program focuses on engaging the public with the work of textile artists by offering an inside look into an artist’s studio. WiP artists will maintain “live studio” times where they can interact with the community and discuss their processes and techniques. The artist will also leave behind a clear visual narrative so the public can get a glimpse of “work in progress” even when the artist isn’t present. This is an ideal program for artists who enjoy speaking about their creative process to the public and want to take advantage of a large Manhattan storefront to promote and display their work.

Application
We are currently accepting applications for WiP residencies taking place between March 2018 – July 2018.
Applicants must submit an application, including a detailed proposal of how they will set up their studio in the assigned space, + 3 images of their artwork.
WIP is roughly 10 x 5 feet and is equipped with a table, chair, pin board wall + shelving. Artists have the potential to be provided with equipment depending on availability, but all artists will be expected to bring their own materials outside of normal studio equipment.
Selected artist will commit to at least one weekly shift of public hours (Saturdays 2-6PM). Artists are encouraged to keep other hours at WiP for more opportunities to engage the public.
Selected artist will commit to host one free workshop, lecture, or performance open to the public.

Application is available online through SlideRoom: https://tac.slideroom.com/#/permalink/program/39855

Deadline: November 13, 2017

Duration
Work in Progress cycles start on the first of every month and run for the full month. Selected artist will be notified 30 days before the beginning of their cycle. Install must take place between the 1-3 days of the month and deinstall must take place on the 28-31.

Benefits
Artists will be written about and promoted on the TAC social media, including blog, Instagram, and Facebook. Work will be displayed in the Manhattan storefront window, and artists will have the ability to speak to the public about their work, and get feedback from visitors

Andrea Lyons'  work is about the home and the materials that are symbolic of it. I have used wood both to paint on and as part of the subject of the painting. The connection of wood as part of the structure of the house and also part of the tree form. The layers of the bark of the tree as related to the layers of skin. The correlation of flesh to wood and other building materials.
