Residency opportunities at ElsewherePosted by Michelle Kasprzak • Sunday, January 14. 2007 • Category: Announcements
The application date for this opportunity has passed.
Though at first blush this opportunity may seem to be exclusively for artists, not curators, Collaborative Director of Elsewhere George Scheer tells me that one way to approach this unique residency is to tackle the "...museum as medium and artist as curator within a site-specific and always changing environment".
The opportunity sounds very intriguing and open. Check out the short description below, but do visit their site to obtain further details.
Elsewhere, a living installation, museum of process, and art production space in downtown Greensboro, NC, is seeking artists-in-residence for its Spring, Summer, and Fall 2007 residency seasons. Set within a former thrift store housing a 58-year inventory of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites artists-in-residence to utilize the immense collection of objects to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or technologically-based projects. Elsewhere’s building—two full stores on the ground level, a 14-room boarding house on the second, and warehouse on the third—provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of works. Artists live and work within changing installations, engaging interactive environments for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making. Experimenting with museum-as-medium within a store where nothing is for sale, Elsewhere offers an unparalleled framework for merging art practice and everyday life. The complete call for artists is available here. Elsewhere is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
