Go Elsewhere 2014
Elsewhere Living Museum
Greensboro, North Carolina
Deadline: 10 January 2014, 11:59pm EST
Elsewhere is now accepting 2014 residency applications. Artists, musicians, curators, scholars, writers, gardeners, urban agriculturalists, homesteaders, installation, sculpture, textile, sound, video, kitchen and performance artists, system-thinkers, game-makers, and other creative individuals/groups across medias are encouraged to apply. Residents use the museum’s immense 58-year collection of cultural and material surplus for site-specific projects that interpret and contribute to Elsewhere’s concepts, collections , and communities.
Makers and thinkers with an interest in the intersections of participation and play, situation and process, repair and reuse, public practice, and critical institutions are an excellent fit for this program. Residents evolve their projects from the enormous collections of textiles and toys, books, consumer technologies, thrift store shrift, and rooms full of vintage clothes. They respond to the spaces and the social ecologies of the museum. Residencies include access to a wood shop, screen printing facility, fabric workshop, library, storefront theater, vintage wardrobe, communal kitchen, as well as connections with Greensboro neighbors and Elsewhere’s national artist network. All projects are supported by a team of curators who provide critical feedback, documentation, community connections, and event support.
Elsewhere offers an exceptional place for rethinking the people, places, and things of everyday and extraordinary life. Individuals and collaborative teams are encouraged to apply. Residencies range from 2-6 weeks. 4 weeks is the ideal residency time-frame. Creative retreats and internships are also available.
