Submission deadline: May 31, 2012
(Residency to Commence November 1, 2012)
Harcourt House Artist Run Centre is currently accepting submissions for our 2012/ 2013 Artist in Residence (AIR). Awarded to artists annually through a peer jury selection process, this program is committed to providing the selected artist with a year-long, dedicated studio environment at Harcourt House Artist Run Centre to research, develop and exhibit new work. This program allows for the Artist in Residence to engage and interact with the local visual arts community, encouraging shared ideas, expression and discourse.
This one-year residency includes a studio space, access to our art education courses and facilities, teaching opportunities and a $150 monthly art supply stipend. The AIR will be given a solo exhibition in the centre’s Main Gallery at the end of the one-year term to conclude their residency. The AIR will receive CAR/FAC fees for the presentation of this final exhibition.
We invite artists who are Canadian residents to submit a proposal before May 31, 2012. All disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applicants will be selected by the quality of work submitted, their demonstration of commitment to serious practice and how the residency will meet their objectives at this crucial juncture in the development of their practice.
Proposal guidelines are as follows:
- 10-15 digital images of recent work
- Artist statement
- Plan of activity for residency
- Demonstration of at least 2 years commitment to studio work outside of a post secondary institution
- 2 letters of reference from professionals in the arts community
**Short listed candidates will be interviewed as a part of the jury’s selection process.
NOTE: Curriculum vitae (C.V.), artist statement, plan of activity and slide list must be submitted in hard copy AND digitally as a writable Word or Open Office document. Files must be Mac compatible.
