The Neighborhood Time Exchange: West Philadelphia Artist Residency (Time Exchange) - an initiative that will explore how embedded artistic practice can be a platform for social change - is seeking artists for its inaugural round of residencies that will take place between January and October, 2015.
Time Exchange aims to create a novel residency structure in which for every hour artists spend working in their studio on their own projects, they will in turn provide an hour of volunteer effort and service back to the community. The program offers residencies lasting from one two three months, in newly-renovated storefront space at the intersection of a diverse array of communities in West Philadelphia, and will provide artists with free studio space, a monthly stipend, and basic tools and supplies. In exchange, artists will provide skill and time-based resources for the surrounding communities, working on civic projects identified by residents and community-based organizations.
Time Exchange offers an unparalleled opportunity for artists to explore the complex and necessary, if uncharted, role that responsible and accountable creative practice can play in a challenged and changing neighborhood. The residency will aim to create a framework through which the often-invisible resources of a neighborhood (the people, the history, and the experience of everyday life) can be understood as highly valuable components in revitalizing a neighborhood. By providing clear intersections and negotiations of time between community residents and visiting artists, Time Exchange will aim to cultivate a new dynamic and role for creativity and reciprocity in the revitalization of a neighborhood.
The collaborative project founders - Broken City Lab, the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, and the People's Emergency Center - will offer curatorial and organizational support, as well as introductions to and opportunities for connection with neighborhood and community leaders. Additional details on the goals of the program, neighborhood, and residency structure can be found in the Application Form.Deadline: October 24, 2014 | Download the Application Form: http://www.neighborhoodtime.exchange For the past year or so, we've been working on a residency with Watershed+ in Calgary, Alberta. Watershed+ is a unique public art residency program that creates a climate of opportunity for water initiatives to build an emotional connection between people and Calgary's watershed. Our task was to embed ourselves within the Water Centre (and Calgary in general) and really take the time to explore what the watershed means to Calgarians and us as visitors. The Bow River and Elbow River are Calgary's main sources of water and during our residency we explored ideas inspired by their physical structure, social implications, and municipal infrastructure. We went on a number of tours and took hundreds of photographs, audio clips, and short videos. After months of brainstorming, meeting, and reconfiguring, we have produced a series of works called Varying Proximities. An exhibition of the project was generously hosted by Stride Art Gallery Association in Calgary and will remain on view until Saturday, August 2nd, 2014.

From May 1st-31st, five artists will be accessing the school’s resources and facilities to cultivate new ideas through research, studio production, and exploration of regional arts and culture.

She holds a BFA from Mount Alison University, and an MFA from the University of Windsor.
Tuesday, May 6th - 6PMCandice Davies (Montreal, QC) Davies is a sculptor and installation artist whose practice aims to draw attention to layers of meaning within the gallery space, and questions existing assumptions about art objects by engaging the viewer in unexpected encounters.

Tara Lynn MacDougall (Halifax, NS) MacDougall is an interdisciplinary artist who humorously examines what makes a “good painting”. By juxtaposing historical and contemporary painting references with automatic marks and gestures, she forms an array of new visual forms.

Cowling holds a BA in Visual Studies and Art History from the University of Toronto. Christy Kunitzky (Toronto, ON) Kunitzky is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses various mediums to investigate obsession, the absurd, affect and gender.

Thursday, May 8th at 6pm - CIVIC Space (411 Pelissier Street, Windsor, Ontario)First and foremost, we want to give a huge thanks to everyone who made a nomination for the Best of Awards and helped uncover the things that make Windsor such a unique place to live. Also, thank you so much for your patience. We had an unexpected delay sourcing some of the materials for the celebration, but things are back on track and we're holding The Best of Awards on Thursday, May 8th from 6pm - 10pm! We hope that this change isn't prohibitive and you can make it; it's going to be a blast. All you have to do is bring the person you nominated along with you. Refreshments will be served and everyone who was nominated will receive a personalized award during the ceremony. If you weren't able to make a nomination, come along for the celebration anyways! See you May 8th! Above: Caitlin and Lois exchanging answers to a series of fill-in-the-blank questions We’re currently artists in residence at the Burrard Marina Field House, aka the Contemporary Art Gallery's Field House Studio and our work continues until the end of April. Our four month project, Flagged for Review is based on imagining the symbolic and lived potential of a city. We're wondering what we might expect from a city that could establish its policies, identity and politics around a range of challenging (or inspiring) values. This line of inquiry will inform our production a series of flags that will be installed in and around the Field House and throughout the city in the coming month(s). On Tuesday nights, we've been hosting an ongoing open house at the Field House Studio to run in parallel to the production aspect of the residency. We began on March 18th with interviews, followed by a night of intimate conversations on the values and challenges of collectivity, and then this week, a projection-workshop / performance. We were incredibly happy to host such an incredibly generous group on Tuesday (huge thanks to Shaun, Caitlin, Jackie, Hiba, Kristen, Carmen, Camilla, Shaun, Heidi, Rebecca, Lois, and Caitlin)! We gathered to imagine what the future holds for the city and then create a series of short declarations to project onto the Burrard Bridge that animate our hopes, doubts and dreams for the short and long-term horizons of Vancouver. Around the table, we asked everyone to pair up and go through this sheet together. Heidi and Rebecca filling in the blanks we left. Kristen, Caitlin, Jackie, Hiba, and Carmen sharing around the mega table. We've also started doing some tests of some mini-flags that we're completing for the Canadian Art Foundation Gallery Hop Vancouver. These will be a limited-edition set of flags (mini versions of the much larger ones we'll print later on this month) that will be available at the Contemporary Art Gallery as well as participating Hop galleries. The sheets were mostly filled out as it started to get dark, which was great timing. We were going to translate these answers into short texts to project onto the Burrard Bridge. We went around the table and read the answers we had collected aloud. Some things that Vancouver needs to hear... Vancouver is ________________. How do you affect this place? Vancouver was ____________________. I wish Vancouver would stop ____________________. If I could tell Vancouver anything it would be ______________________. In the future, I don't want Vancouver to be known as ________________________. And then, we stared the projections. We used our trusty 5000 lumens Epson projector. We didn't project every message or answer. But we tried to capture the ones that seemed to be represent everyone's answers or sensibilities. FREE TRANSIT. MORE PUBLIC SPACE. LOOSER LIQUOR LAWS. I LOVE THE OCEAN MORE THAN THE PEOPLE. STOP BEING SO RICH VS POOR. Some of the crew out documenting. The other half of the group was inside staying warm. I MAY NEVER LEAVE. STOP PRACTICING THE TOILET THEORY. GET REAL. VANCOUVER WILL BE INCLUSIVE. I LOVE THE SMELL OF CHINA TOWN. NEVER CHANGE THE BACK ALLEYS. YOUR SUSHI IS DELICIOUS. YOU'RE REALLY GOOD AT SKATEPARKS. MORE BUS ROUTES & TIMES. VANCOUVER WILL BE THE FUTURE. WAY MORE CARING. MORE THAN A GOOD TIME. MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING. STOP DISPLACING COMMUNITIES. FLEXIBLE FORGIVING. THIS WILL NOT BE A LASTING RELATIONSHIP. MORE SUPPORT STRUCTURES. THE CITY IS NOT A FINANCIAL INVESTMENT. AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR ALL. HOME TO (THE) POOREST POSTAL CODE. STOP TRYING TO BE SO PERFECT. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. YOUNG, PROGRESSIVE, FRAGMENTED. I'M LONELY. MORE TIME THINKING ABOUT WHAT WE SHOULD BE. BE GENTLE AS WE GROW. HOW DO YOU AFFECT THIS PLACE? STOP BEING PRE-OCCUPIED. STOP DISABLING THE PEOPLE. HUGE THANKS again to Shaun, Caitlin, Jackie, Hiba, Kristen, Carmen, Camilla, Shaun, Heidi, Rebecca, Lois, and Caitlin for coming out. Next week, the fun continues! Tuesday, April 8: The Trouble is... 7-8:30pm (Burrard Marina Field House Studio, 1655 Whyte Avenue) Bring your questions, suspicions, and inspirations for art in public spaces to an open conversation on art as troublemaking and troublemaking as art.

We know that a city is more than just buildings, roads, political decisions, pools, telephone poles, and parks. We know that it’s all of the little things that make this city great, or better yet, it’s all the little things that so many people we know do for us, knowingly or not, every day that make this city great. We think it’s long overdue that we help celebrate those people and we hope you’ll help us.
We want to have a big awards ceremony...really big actually. So, we’ll make the awards and host the party, all you have to do is find someone to nominate and show up to help us celebrate.
Here’s how it will work: You make a nomination below, we’ll mail you two invitations (one for you and one for the person you nominate), and then you both show up for our awards party on Thursday, May 8th, 2014 at 6:00PM.
**Don't forget: The nominator is responsible for bringing the nominee to collect their award.
Submissions are now closed. Thank you to everyone who made a nomination for The Best of Awards! We'll be in touch soon and see you on Thursday, May 8th at 6pm (CIVIC Space - 411 Pelissier Street, Windsor)American artist Alyson Shotz constructed this large-scale picket fence from strips of mirror and placed it in a natural setting as a sort of suggested barrier or delineation of space. The project was a commissioned installation for Storm King Art Center in New York. What intrigues me most is the variety of views that are possible with this installation. From some angles it almost completely disappears, leaving you with the sensation of a photograph with an obscure horizontal smear across the center (like below). via: Designboom
