Regeneration has an embedded notion of loss. Loss of limb, loss of life, loss of deadweight. In this residency, we considered the work of rebuilding artistic practice after having lost something. Many of us have experienced loss in our community, in our perception of safety, in political decency, and in our personal economics as independent creators. In this residency, we recombined our efforts, tackled our own challenges and met them with powerful regenerative forces.

For six Sundays in the fall, artists Autumn Bree, Kate Godfrey, Constance Moore, Stephanie Potter Corwin, Tracey Rolandelli and Noga Wizansky met as a group with curators Mary Jeys and Shoshana Zambryski Stachel to discuss topics brought forth in their proposed projects. Weekly discussions addressed issues of regeneration and process as they related to each artist’s practice.

Given the curators’ interests in artist/gift economies and community arts access, artists were also encouraged to create companion works available in the gift shop during the fall/winter season. All artworks are on sale — both gallery-installed and smaller companion works available in the shop.

ReGeneration Open Call- extended deadline September 7th

Posted: July 24th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: curating, neighborhood, residency, summer, to do, works in progress | No Comments »

Regeneration has an embedded notion of loss. Loss of limb, loss of life, loss of deadweight.

What is Regeneration? How does my practice manifest the concept? How does our cultural imagination understand regenerative processes? What about this is personal, political, scientific, magical, etc.?

In this residency, we will be considering the work of rebuilding our artistic practice as we reconstruct ourselves having lost something. Many of us have experienced loss in our community, in our perception of safety, in political decency, and in our personal economics as independent creators. With ReGeneration, we seek to recombine our efforts, to tackle our own challenges, and meet them with powerful force.

We invite you to participate in a residency program engaged in discussion about your work, our cultural climate, the history of art, social change, and beneficial economies. Weekly discussions will address issues related to regeneration (and rejuvenation, reclamation, refinancing; etc.,) as they relate to art practice. Each participant is encouraged to bring as much as possible to the group, including readings; artistic, social and political heroes; marketplace concepts, foolish ideas; etc.

Beginning September 30th through November 4th, accepted applicants will meet every Sunday as a group at ArtVale Gallery to discuss the current social issues and topics brought forth by participant projects. All accepted applicants must commit to all six Sunday meetings where we will participate in group discussions and critically review the works-in-progress (see schedule below). At the end of the program, there will be a group exhibition at ArtVale, final date to be determined. Read the rest of this entry »
