  • Hear/d Residency Submissions
    All day
    January 1, 2018-January 21, 2018

    DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 2018 AT MIDNIGHT

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the 2018 Hear/d Residency program. Part of the ACADSA mandate is to provide professional development opportunities for students while also helping to facilitate the development of a strong student artist community + culture. The ACADSA Hear/d Residency invites individuals and collectives from all discipline areas to work together to collaborate on the research, development, creation and curation of an exhibition.

    The residency will have its own central theme of resilience, relating to the journey of mental health issues currently experienced by many post-secondary students. Given this theme, participants are invited to explore and share their journeys in a creative and innovative way. Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops, this residency will provide a platform for a diversity of creative activity. The residency will aim to raise awareness towards the health + well-being of post-secondary students, while also connecting members from different disciples who will help to build a stronger sense of inclusion and comradery in the ACAD community.

    RESILIENCE

    Being in good health means more than feeling physically well; it also means feeling mentally well. Today, we are more aware of how our mental and physical health affect each other. Setting aside time to focus on mental health is important – to you and those who care about you. Life is full of change, risks and challenges. Good mental or emotional health helps us find our balance and stay in control, even during turbulent times. – Canadian Mental Health Association (2017)

    ARTIST FEES

    ACADSA will provide each of the participants with a $250.00 honorarium to  support the time, resources, and materials required to participate in the program.

    SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

    DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 2018 AT MIDNIGHT

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the 2018 Hear/d Residency program.

The ACADSA Hear/d Residency invites individuals and collectives from all discipline areas to work together to collaborate on the research, development, creation and curation of an exhibition.

    The residency will have its own central theme of resilience, relating to the journey of mental health issues currently experienced by many post-secondary students. Given this theme, participants are invited to explore and share their journeys in a creative and innovative way. Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops, this residency will provide a platform for a diversity of creative activity. The residency will aim to raise awareness towards the health + well-being of post-secondary students, while also connecting members from different disciples who will help to build a stronger sense of inclusion and comradery in the ACAD community.

    RESILIENCE

    Being in good health means more than feeling physically well; it also means feeling mentally well. Today, we are more aware of how our mental and physical health affect each other. Setting aside time to focus on mental health is important – to you and those who care about you. Life is full of change, risks and challenges. Good mental or emotional health helps us find our balance and stay in control, even during turbulent times. – Canadian Mental Health Association (2017)

    ARTIST FEES

    ACADSA will provide each of the participants with a $250.00 honorarium to  support the time, resources, and materials required to participate in the program.

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    The box is a language that has helped to physically shape our entire infrastructure. Over years of evolution, this simple shape has helped us structure and control what we think the meaning of our existence is. All forms of language eventually fit into a widespread structure. Any language we choose to jump on becomes subject to structure, thus giving us a pre-existing form and the future manipulation of this. I’m trying to understand how to escape a system through structural form, sound, reflection, and light, which in hindsight creates a system that is acquired through previously subjected practices.

    My work deals primarily with language and the manipulation and transformation of this through sound, light, illusion, and repetition within constructed forms. I’m trying to establish an understanding of inner and outer time and space as an idea to potentially transcend beyond object and into the metaphysical.

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    Manifesting religious imagery from my Catholic upbringing positioned against occultism, I design hybrid iconographic narratives that explore memory and sexuality. Conjuring ghostly landscapes of the body, I revisit the depiction of a witch woman who acts as a monstrous interpretation of my identity. I currently analyze the reoccurring image of the unicorn in my life and investigate the Christian significance of the 14th Century Unicorn Tapestries. In these dense tapestries the unicorn is a representation of purity/holiness. The beast is used to illustrate the corruption of man and the importance of an uncorrupted woman. Adopting this visual language my drawings are mysterious and unsettling materializations of my eroticized self-portrait committing acts of violence and humiliation upon the unicorn. They function as allegorical diary entries where I attempt to conjure the intangible sensations of regret, anger and sexual turmoil.

    Janeen Scott is a Calgarian artist completing her BFA at The Alberta College of Art and Design with a major in painting. Her practice focuses on the ritualistic nature of drawing and the continuous representation of a witch entity that functions as her self-portrait. She derives material from a constant juxtaposition of her Catholic upbringing and its parallels to occultism and witchcraft.

  • Hear/d Residency Submissions
    All day
    January 18, 2018-January 21, 2018

    DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 2018 AT MIDNIGHT

    ACAD Students’ Association is seeking applications for the 2018 Hear/d Residency program. Part of the ACADSA mandate is to provide professional development opportunities for students while also helping to facilitate the development of a strong student artist community + culture. The ACADSA Hear/d Residency invites individuals and collectives from all discipline areas to work together to collaborate on the research, development, creation and curation of an exhibition.

    The residency will have its own central theme of resilience, relating to the journey of mental health issues currently experienced by many post-secondary students. Given this theme, participants are invited to explore and share their journeys in a creative and innovative way. Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops, this residency will provide a platform for a diversity of creative activity. The residency will aim to raise awareness towards the health + well-being of post-secondary students, while also connecting members from different disciples who will help to build a stronger sense of inclusion and comradery in the ACAD community.

    RESILIENCE

    Being in good health means more than feeling physically well; it also means feeling mentally well. Today, we are more aware of how our mental and physical health affect each other. Setting aside time to focus on mental health is important – to you and those who care about you. Life is full of change, risks and challenges. Good mental or emotional health helps us find our balance and stay in control, even during turbulent times. – Canadian Mental Health Association (2017)

    ARTIST FEES

    ACADSA will provide each of the participants with a $250.00 honorarium to  support the time, resources, and materials required to participate in the program.

    SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

    The application process is entirely electronic. Direct email and paper submissions will NOT be accepted. Due to the number of submissions received, the quantity of support material in the application is restricted. The jury will not review additional materials beyond the required documents.

    Alexa Bunnell – A memoir for a woman I didn’t know and the man who plays the banjo

    Reception: Thursday, January 18, 2018
    6 pm – 7 pm at Arts Commons +15 Space with optional drinks to follow at the Palomino.

    Artist’s Statement & Bio:

    A memoir for a woman I didn’t know and the man who plays the banjo examines the relationship between our physical, tactile environment and the intangible human memory. This work is investigating the dynamic between tactile objects and immaterial sentiment thought. At the time of collection of the objects I was grieving, from a distance, two people. Objects were the closest I could get to the wavering memories I had of these people. It terrified me. The column is made of jars that contain on the surface my intangible memory. The objects are the remnants of these individuals. I am seeking the place where I stand here.

    Alexa Bunnell is a queer emerging artist and student based in Calgary, Alberta. She works primarily through ceramic methods and processes. She is currently a candidate for a Bachelors of Fine Art in ceramics at Alberta College of Art and Design.
