Call to Artists: Politics in Collage Residency

Call to Artists: Politics in Collage Residency

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, September 11, 2021

A four-week, virtual/online residency with Kolaj Institute in September/October 2021
Deadline to apply: September 11, 2021

In four virtual meetings on Sundays from 2-5PM EDT over four weeks and through ongoing, online discussion, artists will examine contemporary social and political issues as shown through collage. Artists will hear from a variety of guest speakers about the historical context of this genre, how to articulate complex political subjects both in their work itself and promotions of their work, and explore how we can continue to inspire meaningful engagement with difficult topics through collage.

Artists in the residency will conceptualize and begin work on a piece exploring a political or social subject of their choosing. Although the works may not be completed by the end of the residency, they will be regularly critiqued and discussed by the group throughout. Artists will write an artist statement that documents and provides critical context for their work. The completed work and texts from the residency will result in a book published by Kolaj Institute and an exhibition, whether in-person or online, to be determined at a later date.

My figurative work involves eyes, faces and figures decorated with dots of color in motifs of flower, rosette, teardrop, scroll and leaf. For me, they express an allusion to mortality, matter and energy fields.

Christina Penrose's work is a result of experimenting with various transfer methods, collage, and paint application. This process stimulates underlying themes that are at times autobiographical, political, environmental, or mystical. Often inspired from the landscapes from her travels.
