New 3-week residency for artists in Minneapolis culminates in an exhibition and a book; a place for discourse and studio alike
A New 3-week intensive work-in-residence for artists, writers, and thinkers gathers in Minneapolis, resulting in an exhibition and/or book. Help us support creativity and give artists room to move, above all things! Intersecting with local Mpls art centers such as the Soap Factory, the Walker Art Center, Bindery Projects, and Midway, this residency remains independent of any one institution.
Residency Time: July 25- August 15, 2012
Outcome Exhibition/Book: Fall 2012 (~Oct)
Our pilot season has in-residence these 9 interdisciplinary artists:
John Fleischer, K. Valentine Cadieux, Peter McLarnan, Kelsey Olson, Daniel Dean, Chad Rutter, Emily Stover, all from MSP; Ben Garthus, from NYC; and Lee Walton, from Greensboro.
This discursive art residency bridges the gap between academia and the real world. It is a place for serious artists of rigor to step back from the Hustle and take time for experiment and research. Ideas, like people, sometimes need a second chance to find their groove. Give them three. Give them ten.
9 practicing artists, both local (MSP) and out-state, will come together in late July, taking up temporary work residence in a unique urban Minneapolis space for the three-week duration. All artists are asked to bring an open mind, an open heart, and some studio chops.
This is a time that is meant for the artists; they may use it simply to do research, or to collaborate with another resident in a new form, or to stir the beginnings of a new body of work.
We believe in artists having agency.
When artists can find the time and space to even think about the possibility of doing a residency, which often artists have to pay for out-of-pocket, they are usually signed up for a particular time slot without regard to whom will be there at that same time. We believe artists can thrive when given room and agency! So, first beginning with a small group of select MSP artists, we will hold an equal number of resident seats open for an out-state group which they elect and invite themselves. In this way, the original core can determine their own resident nucleus and modes of making.
Ten Chances is not an escape, but an opportunity. In backing its experimental beta run, you are supporting a new residency paradigm as well as its potential influence on the greater contemporary art community.
Every artist receives a stipend, and travel funds if necessary, for their time.
(This is based on a European model of economy, where artists receive incomes and commissions which are not solely based on market-value product.)
Once a week, a Guest Lecturer is invited to join the resident group for conversation and studio visits.
The Main Gathering Space is a place for collaboration and exchange, social and studio – a working laboratory. Everyone has a key and can use it at all times.
At the end of the residency term, the residents will retreat to their lives. An exhibition outcome, with book, will take place in the Fall, after several months of gestation.
Your donations will go toward covering artists' stipends, the space rental, and the resulting exhibition and book!
After this initial pilot season, look for an Open Call for submissions in late January 2013 for the next summer session!
