OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATIONS TO SHANDAKEN: STORM KING OPENS JANUARY 10, 2018
Shandaken Projects and Storm King Art Center are pleased to announce that applications to the fourth season of Shandaken: Storm King are now being accepted through February 12, 2018. More information and applications are available at www.shandakenprojects.org/storm-king/apply. This program was formerly known as The Shandaken Project at Storm King.
Shandaken: Storm King offers residents the opportunity to focus exclusively on process, and is open to cultural producers of all disciplines. Over 50 artists have been awarded residencies since this collaboration began in 2015. These former residents have worked in and across media like sculpture, video, photography, performance, poetry, music, and creative and critical writing.
The residency, offered at no cost to participants, follows a process-focused model—giving preference to experimentation, research, and risk-taking in the studio. Residents work in private studios on Storm King’s 500-acre site, with access to the world-renowned landscape and collection. They are given free room and board, including a CSA share from nearby, organic Blooming Hill Farm, as well as free studio space.
Shandaken: Storm King will award 15 to 20 residencies as part of the 2018 season, which takes place from June 4 to September 30. Residencies are two, four or six weeks in length, with three artists on site at a time. This intimate scale encourages dialogue between residents, while also allowing for intense focus on individual practice. Artists are each given a simple, private studio and are housed together on Storm King’s site.
This collaboration between Storm King and Shandaken Projects receives major support from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation as well as The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. These significant grants were awarded to Storm King in August and November of 2016, respectively, to support the residency program in 2017 and 2018. The grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts will also support Storm King’s Outlooks exhibition series, which invites an emerging or mid-career artist to create a site-specific piece at Storm King on view for a single season.
