Paper Machine Publication Residency

Share

Category:

Country:

Deadline: November 14th

Past Artists and Projects Include:

The People’s Paper Co-op produced The Re-Entry Bill of Rights an edition of letterpress and screen printed works advocating for formerly incarcerated people using paper created from shredded criminal records from a criminal record expungement clinic.

Antenna’s Paper Machine Residency supports artists in the development of creative projects and public programs that explore and expand the possibilities of print-based artistic inquiry. The program annually welcomes up to 6 artists — with a mix of local and national/international artists to realize unique proposals for print-focused projects and public programs. Over the course of a month long residency at Paper Machine, Artists-in-Residence will: 1) develop original editioned work under the broadly-defined rubric of printmaking, including publications, sculptural books, zines, multiples, and other such works; and 2) will present complementary programs that engage the public in their artistic process, including participatory compositions, workshops, or artist talks.  Selected Artists will be awarded a $1500 honorarium, paid travel to and from New Orleans, a month long stay in the Paper Machine residency space, and assistance in development/execution of a 300 piece edition with 50 copies given to the artist. All materials will be provided for the production of the edition .

Paper Machine is a 5,000 square-foot center for creator-driven publishing in the Lower 9th Ward, which houses a range of new and traditional technologies: commercial-grade digital & foiling presses as well as letterpress and silkscreen, direct-to-garment, 3D printing equipment, and full book bindery. The second floor offers affordable studio space for local artists and the Artist Book Collection at Paper Machine, a teaching collection of artists’ books, editioned and one-of-a-kind productions spanning visual art, literary art, graphic design, printmaking, bookbinding, papermaking, and publishing.

Projects

Artists must apply with a proposed project. We understand that these ideas may morph throughout the residency, or even between application and arrival. Ultimately, Paper Machine exists to support each artist’s creative process and what happens where it intersects with print-based technologies. We ask for a written proposal and supporting images in the application in order to get a sense of how an artist might use their residency, but we know that things may change. Because the print center may be an overwhelming environment for some at the beginning, a proposal provides a great place to start, but we expect many artists’ projects will diverge from the original proposals.

Public Program

We ask that all Paper Machine residents propose some kind of Public Program. This could be an artist talk, workshop, collaborative project, or anything else that creates a moment for our community to engage with you and your project. This will be proposed after selection.

Support Materials

Support Materials can include examples of past work, focused on a detailed explaination of one past project and then a portfolioof up to 10 works. You are asked to describe your project proposal and you can als include a pdf that expands upon your project proposal description.
