[Sponsored Listing] The Artists’ Cooperative Residency and Exhibitions (ACRE) announces a call for artists for the ACRE Summer Artist Residency Program. The program takes place every summer in rural Southwest Wisconsin. Developed as a means to support emerging visual artists, sound artists, musicians, performers, writers, and curators, the program provides artists with the opportunity to expand upon their individual practices as well as take part in optional programming within a collaborative community. This summer, ACRE will continue with a restructured model focusing on smaller residencies and reduced number of people on campus. Up-to-date vaccinations and a negative test before traveling are required for all visitors.
Register by: 20 Mar 2022
Scholarships are available.
Run by a large community of volunteers, the program is designed to help fellow emerging artists develop, present, and grow their creative practices. Set on 1,000 acres of wetland, hills, and farmland, the Summer Artist Residency Program facilities include expansive communal workspaces, a screen-printing studio, woodshop, ceramics studio, fibers studio, art and tech facility, and sound studio. Two meals per day plus a light breakfast are provided and prepared daily using ingredients grown in the surrounding area.
Over the subsequent year, ACRE endeavors to provide further opportunities for exposure and community building to its alumni. Each resident is offered an exhibition opportunity at a Chicago gallery or one of a number of alternative exhibition spaces ACRE partners with in Chicago and is given access to an online “flat file,” where they can develop customizable pages to present their work. These efforts complement other activities and programming designed to create the conditions for a thriving and enduring arts network.

[Sponsored Listing] The John Michael Kohler Arts Center announces a call for artists for the 2023 Arts/Industry Residencies. For more than forty years, Arts/Industry has been connecting artists with the resources, technology, and materials of Kohler Co, as well as providing a place to explore new ideas, processes, and perspectives. Artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply.
Each year, up to twelve artists are selected for residencies in the pottery or foundry areas of the factory through a competitive jury process. No experience with clay or cast metal is required, just an interest in pursuing a new body of work and being open to new ideas.
Enter by: 14 Mar 2022
Arts/Industry residencies are three months in length and divided into three cohorts. There are four artists-in-residence in each cohort: two in pottery and two in foundry. Residents are expected to commit to the full three-month period. Artists-in-residence receive 24-hour access to studio space, industrial materials, use of equipment, technical assistance, photographic services, housing, round-trip transportation, and a modest weekly stipend.
Hundreds of artists have benefited from the celebrated Arts/Industry residency program since its beginning in 1974. The program, undoubtedly one of the most unusual ongoing collaborations between art and industry in the United States, was conceived and is administered by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center and hosted by Kohler Co.
Arts/Industry offers artists the time and space to focus on the creation of new work and a unique location for their studios. Artists-in-residence work at the Kohler Co factory in the pottery and/or foundry. Artists need not have experience with clay or metal, just an interest in materials and the potential for the industrial environment and processes to influence their creative practice. Participants are exposed to a body of technical knowledge that enables and encourages them to explore new ways of thinking and working.
About John Michael Kohler Arts Center
The John Michael Kohler Arts Center located north of Milwaukee in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, was founded in 1967. It is dedicated to making innovative exhibitions and arts programming accessible to a broad audience. Central to its mission is promoting understanding and appreciation of the work of self-taught and contemporary artists through original exhibitions, commissioned works of art, performing arts programs, and community arts initiatives. Since the 1970s, JMKAC has preserved, studied, and exhibited works by art-environment builders and has earned a worldwide reputation for its work in this area. Art environments involve an individual significantly transforming their surroundings—for example, their home or yard—into an exceptional, multifaceted work of art.
The Arts Center’s downtown Sheboygan facility includes eight galleries, two performance spaces, a café, a retail shop, and a drop-in art-making studio. Among its program offerings are community arts projects; artist residencies; presentations of dance, film, and music; a free weekly summer concert series; classes and workshops; an onsite arts-based preschool program; and approximately twelve originally curated exhibitions of the work of self-taught and contemporary artists annually. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center also administers the renowned Arts/Industry residency program, which is hosted by Kohler Co.

Applicants are encouraged to have a clear objective for their residency. Stays usually range from two weeks to three months.

Studio features a storefront multi-purpose display space that can be used for exhibitions or presentations during the residency.
For most of its existence, A.I.R. Studio residents have been visual and fiber artists, a few photographers, and a scattering of creatives in other disciplines.

“I embrace this day and all the levels of awareness that have entered my consciousness amidst depths of sadness and loss. Sitting on a bench overlooking the Ohio River, a gentle breeze brings comfort to my body and I watch what appears to be, calm, lightly fluttering wings on the surface of the water. This is just what I need. The great expanse in front of me is a gentle reminder that there is a great deal beyond this place where I sit; more to experience and endless opportunities to create a greater life of fulfillment beyond this moment.” – Helen Elliott, GA
“The experience really jumped-started me into a new path with my work. The residency also allowed for some reflection on my life, my pursuit of the arts, and acted almost as a spiritual retreat.” – Dan Annarino, IN
“Being at Paducah A.I.R. was a spectacular enterprise for me. Having the studio there last February was life changing and I have yearned for a studio space ever since. On another note, I am showing the large work I created there for the first time opening today. Seeing the work up at the Manhattan Beach Art Center tonight will be a moving reminder of that beautiful experience.” – June Edmonds, CA

Artists unable to attend this group residency program may apply for a 6 week individual stay at JTHAR.

Deadline: 10 Jan 2021

Each artist can work in uninterrupted solitude as living quarters and studios are private and resident schedules will not overlap. Participating artists practice social distancing, wear face masks, and diligently use hand sanitizers and disinfectants during their stay.
“It’s impossible to describe my time at JTHAR without words that sound hyperbolic, but they’re all true. Beyond unprecedented access to a natural landscape like none other, the Joshua Tree Highlands Artists Residency brought me into a community of artists and neighbors who will never cease to inspire me. When I told a friend about my work in the desert, she gave me this advice: “be the most wild version of yourself.” In an environment at once challenging, wondrous, and limitlessly supportive, JTHAR was the gift to chase the wildest, most fulfilled version of myself and of my art.” – Rae del Bianco
“JTHAR provided me with time and space to not only explore my own artistic practice but learn about an entirely new ecosystem and engage with a rich artistic community. The unique landscape of Joshua Tree is deeply inspirational. During breaks between working on large studio pieces, I would go outside and just paint what I found around me. These observational studies kept my painting muscles strong and ended up influencing larger works. This balance of having the studio, the landscape, and the community at my fingertips made the experience.” – Benn Hambuger
About Joshua Tree Highlands Artist Residency
Founded in 2007, JTHAR is a nonprofit artist residency that fosters creativity through opportunities for exploring, experimenting, quiet reflection, engagement, and cross-cultural exchange with the vibrant local artist community. The program establishes spaces where inspiration happens on a daily basis. Artists innovate, change the cultural landscape, and generate a fresh look at the way we connect to each other and to the world. Each year, 4-6 artists from around the world create work amidst the beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, a spectacular and unique setting. The space has 15 years of providing a creative environment for artists and writers.

The Field Kitchen Academy announces a call for artists for The Curious Loop, their interdisciplinary, educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef, and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions. On its second edition, a total of 11 interdisciplinary residents will be selected to join the upcoming Field Kitchen Academy in its three modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı, this year, under the title of The Curious Loop, the Field Kitchen Academy will use the notion of loops-in-sound as a gateway to other concepts of repetition, offering a variety of individual and collective experiences.
Deadline: 22 Jun 2020
Loops represent a time that is suspended, which is a compressed source of the past, present, and the future. The loop oscillates between the known and the unknown. As for the viewer and listener, it could unfold to a future of known (as it repeats the same material over and over again), but it may relate to an unknown (as surprises are always welcome). One never knows if the loop will be broken with an unknown sound or visual component – no matter how well defined and repeated the loop has developed in the past. If one cannot step into the same river twice and one opens to perception with all senses, what differences can we find in each loop?
Composed of three intertwined modules that allow for different durations in the residency, the program is open to application from all disciplines and all walks of life. The selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do nothing but only listening.
The outcome of the Field Kitchen Academy’s three working sessions will be presented as part of The Curious Loop Public Program. The Public Program is partially supported by Musikfonds and Die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.
Location: Gutshaus Wusten-Buchholz, Perleberg, Germany. Approximately 2 hours away from Berlin. Selected participants will be announced by 6 July 2020.
Educational Residency Leaders
- Bill Fontana (composer and video artist)
- Hans Peter Kuhn (sound and visual artist)
- Sebastian Mullaert A.k.a Minilogue (producer and DJ)
- Ove Holmqvist (sound artist)
- Hans Rosenström (sound artist)
- Steffi Weismann (sound artist)
- Ji Woo and Sun Woo (Zen Masters)
- Prof. Dr. Ursula Koch (Neurophysiologist)
Chef in Residence: Emrah Tas
Selection committee: Peter Cusack, Ali M. Demirel, Juliana Hodkinson, Mario Asef, and Ece Pazarbaşı.
The Curious Loop Artist Benefits
The three intertwined modules allow for different durations in the residency. The participation fee covers shared room for two people for the entire period, 3 plant based meals (breakfast, lunch, dinners, and tea time snacks), and the program fee for the entire working sessions and participation in the public program. With an inter-disciplinary approach, the Field Kitchen Academy invites six experts of academics and field practitioners to meet 10 carefully selected artists/ creative minds and a resident cook in a concentrated environment with health regulations.
