PPAC 2019-2020 Artist Residency program

PPAC 2019-2020 Artist Residency program

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, March 30, 2019

The Philadelphia Photo Arts Center is now accepting applications for its 2019-2020 Artist Residency program. 

The intention of the program is to assist talented, self-directed and committed artists in the creation of work by providing necessary financial support, access to high-end facilities and proper technical assistance and education. Our hope is to create a transformative experience that enriches the individual artist and the community of PPAC.

Accepted artists will receive a $3,000 honorarium, will have printer and scanner hourly rental fees waived and will receive a $1,500 credit to be applied to ink usage fees and paper in the Artist Lab. If necessary, a $1,000 stipend will be provided for travel and/or housing.

The length of each individual residency is restricted to a month, but the timing is flexible. Artists should propose a project that fits within the residency term of June 1, 2019, to May 1, 2020.

The month-long residency should be used to advance your artistic practice in a meaningful way. Artists may submit proposals that include the continuation or completion of work already in process, or the creation of new work.

Accepted artists will be required to work collaboratively with PPAC to design two public program events. These programs are flexible and open to your interpretation and interests. Please do not include proposals for these events in your application.

Restrictions
Because the Artist Residency program is intended to support working artists, students are not eligible to apply.

Required Application Materials
All artists must propose a project within the month-long residency term. A letter of intent should clearly address the goals and expected outcomes of the residency, give a specific time frame, along with a preferred month of participation and should outline which lab equipment will be used. A separate artist statement should discuss your most recent work and should clearly outline your process and personal interest in making the work. A $25 application fee to offset costs in accepting and reviewing application materials.

Application materials will be reviewed by PPAC’s Artist Residency Committee. PPAC is unable to respond to inquires about the status of a submission, nor is the Artist Residency Committee able to offer feedback or reasoning for rejected submissions.

Mindy Flexer makes magical realist, figurative, oil paintings. She uses observation and invention to explore identity and family relationships, and the way personal history resides within the larger arc of time. Her current work is about our extraordinary historical moment, when climate crisis threatens all life on earth, and climate justice offers the possibility of global transformation to a just and equitable world. Her visual language of a seamless world of people, animals, and place, is the language of the interconnection of all life on earth. Flexer’s paintings speak about climate in a language personal enough for people to hear it. Her goal is to inspire people to action. She hopes to connect people to themselves and each other, so each person can find their place in the mass movement necessary to create a sustainable future. In this way, she sees her paintings aspart of the great web of healing she deeply believes can save our planet.
