Fwd: INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AT GASWORKS: Emdash Award and TrAIN Residency
Gasworks announces two open calls for artists wishing to participate in the International Residency Programme. The Emdash Award residency, organised in collaboration with Frieze Projects, and the TrAIN residency, organised in collaboration with Chelsea College of Art & Design, are open to emerging artists based outside the UK.
Gasworks International Residency Programme provides non UK based artists with the opportunity to temporarily live and work in London, benefiting from contacts with local artists, curators and the public. The programme encourages international dialogue and exchange of ideas through practice. To date Gasworks has hosted over 170 artists from 50 countries around the world.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: 9 JANUARY 2012
The Emdash Award is open to artists living outside of the UK, up to five years from graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree or under 35 years of age. The Emdash Award is a collaboration between Gasworks and the Frieze Projects programme, supported by the Emdash Foundation.
The recipient of the prize will have the unique opportunity to present their work at Frieze Art Fair 2012 to a significant international audience. Additionally the prize will cover production costs of up to 10,000 GBP, an artist's fee, per diems, travel expenses and a studio residency at Gasworks in London from August to October 2012. Proposals for work can take the form of site-specific installations; performance; film; video or print work. Applicants will be judged on the innovative nature of their proposal and its suitability for realisation at Frieze Art Fair.
The winner of the award will be selected by an international panel of artists and curators including: Andrea Dibelius (Emdash Foundation), Ryan Gander (Artist), Rowan Geddis (Residencies Co-ordinator, Gasworks), Udo Kittelmann (Director of the National Gallery, Berlin), Sarah McCrory (Curator, Frieze Foundation), Dr. Matthias Mühling (Curator of the Lenbachhaus Kunstbau, Munich) and Amelie von Wedel (Emdash Foundation).
The Emdash Award winner in 2011 was Anahita Razmi, whose work Roof Piece Tehran was launched at Frieze Art Fair 2011 to significant critical acclaim.
The closing date for applications is 9 January 2012. The winner of the award will be announced in May 2012. Visit the Gasworks website for full details on how to apply.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 15 JANUARY
The TrAIN residency is open to emerging artists based outside the UK who are interested in researching the archives and special collections held at the Chelsea College of Art & Design Library.
The selected artist will be invited to either use these collections as a point of departure for the development of new work, or to create and deposit his/her own 'resident archive' for future researchers at Chelsea College of Art & Design Library. The route into the Special Collections is not prescribed; its size and complexity allows for diverse and unpredictable responses. Exposing the processes and ideas of modern and contemporary artists, it invites contemporary re-readings, re-activations and replies. The artist is not required to have particular expertise or experience in working with archives. Offering both practical and academic research facilities, this residency focuses on professional development, artistic exchange and the development of artistic research and process. The support, networks and creative environments offered by Gasworks and TrAIN will provide the artist with the means to research and experiment with new work, taking an important step in an international context.
TrAIN (transnationalart,identity andnation) is a Research Centre based at Chelsea College of Art & Design, University of the Arts London. TrAIN has collaborated annually with Gasworks since 2007 with the aim of developing a research-based residency programme extending between the studio and the art school. In 2011 the selected artist in residence was Brazilian artist Jonathas de Andrade.
All I Can See is the Management is an exhibition and programme of events that looks at how artists address the pervasiveness of managerial culture from the late 1970s to today.
The exhibition includes work by Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz, KP Brehmer, Filipa César, Eulàlia, Amy Feneck, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Darcy Lange, Stuart Marshall and Allan Sekula. The gallery is open from 12-6pm Wednesday to Sunday and by appointment.
