Residencies Santa Fe Art Institute’ International Thematic Residency
International Deadline: April 1, 2019 – The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) is pleased to announce our 2020 International Residency Program, the theme this year is ‘Labor’. We are now accepting applications, which includes our Family Residency in July.
Through our open call for applications, The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) seeks artworks, creative research, and innovative actions that consider what vitality, prosperity, and sustainability might look like beyond profit; to envision new systems for “making a living” that elevate all of humanity and infuse our world with freedom, compassion, and harmony; and that reflect the profoundly generative acts of labor.
The Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) welcomes local, national, and international applicants of all backgrounds. We accept applications from Individuals, Collaborations, and Families.
Open to all artistic disciplines (e.g., visual arts, writing, performance, new media, etc.) and other creative practices including, but not limited to, curation, design, architecture, and education. We strongly encourage applicants with interdisciplinary and non-traditional creative practices.
How can art and creative action conscientiously expand public discourse around the intersections of gender, race, and class with the economic and political dynamics of labor?
How might artists’ enduring relationship to emotional, intellectual, and immaterial labor improve the recognition and valuation of invisible or marginalized forms of social and cultural production?
How can we creatively envision and enact bold new models of labor, distinct from dominant global reliance on wages, commodities, and privatized production, and which instead embrace radically humane, inclusive, and collaborative efforts.
