NEXTFAB X DVAA RESIDENCY

NEXTFAB X DVAA RESIDENCY

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, August 31, 2022

Da Vinci Art Alliance and NextFab, two leading organizations in Philadelphia exploring the intersection of art, science, and technology, partner annually to give one artist within 50 miles of Philadelphia the opportunity to use our collective resources to create an exhibition and other activities during and leading up to the Everyday Futures Fest, held each April.

This year, the selected artist will begin monthly meetings with the DVAA and NextFab team in October and creating the work for their exhibition using the resources at any of the three NextFab locations. In January, the selected artist will share a studio with the Winter Residency Fellow from Center for Art in Wood at the North Philly NextFab location through March 31st. Within this program, they hope that the Winter Resident and NextFab X DVAA Resident will have a chance to inspire and assist one another towards the creation of your individual exhibitions. In the first week of February we will have a joint critique of each Resident’s work to offer community wide feedback between the audiences of our three organizations. The NextFab x DVAA resident’s completed exhibition will be on view at DVAA throughout the month of April, followed by an installation of the work at NextFab in May.

ABOUT EVERYDAY FUTURES FEST

Held each April, the Everyday Futures Fest is a month-long series of events, exhibitions, workshops, and volunteer days where we examine sustainability through the lenses of art and science. This year, we’re specifically targeting Sustainability in Craft and Community. We’re really excited to open the door to talking more in depth about the materials we use and why, passing along and expanding upon traditional craft processes in intergenerational spaces, and how we can use craft to create spaces of care and connection.

Carla J Fisher uses thread and throwaways to symbolize how even the tired, used, and totally spent can experience new life. Through free motion machine embroidery, she seeks the viewer’s visceral response of surprise as they realize the sculptured material is simply thread.

In my years as a visual artist I have chosen symbolic forms that are both universal and personal to express the idea of “time.” Often I use nests, eggs, marine creatures, and one-celled organisms. They are symbols for natural phenomenas that manifest this notion of time.
