Description
The Currier Museum of Art invites applications for the second annual open call for its Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program, awarding up to two residencies between fall 2022 and spring 2023. This program will provide support for selected self-identified emerging artists or artist groups (of up to three people) focused on social practice. Due to the flexible nature of this program, these residencies can be for a period of 6-12 weeks between mid-October 2022 and mid-March 2023. The AIR program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting audiences with art and creative thinking. This program deepens the mission through an open call to social practice artists who share the goal of impacting people through the transformative power of art. Applications are open until December 1, 2021. The Currier Museum welcomes and encourages proposals from Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) as well as members of the LGBTQI community. The museum does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status. Applicants must demonstrate a history of social engagement in their artmaking practice and production. Successful applicants will develop an innovative project with tangible outcomes that align with the tenets of their own practice, the mission of the museum, and the needs of the community partner(s) with whom they will collaborate. Artists and small collectives (no more than 3 people) working in any media are eligible to apply.
