Regeneration has an embedded notion of loss. Loss of limb, loss of life, loss of deadweight.

In this residency, we will be considering the work of rebuilding our artistic practice as we reconstruct ourselves having lost something.

With ReGeneration, we seek to recombine our efforts, to tackle our own challenges, and meet them with powerful force.

We invite you to participate in a residency program engaged in discussion about your work, our cultural climate, the history of art, social change, beneficial economies, and other various topics. Weekly discussions will address issues related to regeneration (and rejuvenation, reclamation, refinancing; etc.,) as they relate to art practice.

The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery invites artists to submit one portrait in any media for consideration in the fifth triennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. This year, the focus is on broadening the definition of portraiture and highlighting the genre’s relevance in contemporary art. Artworks may originate from direct encounters between the artist and the sitter, but they may also be representative of indirect encounters. For example, judges will consider portraits that employ existing imagery or archival research as a means of responding to history. Artists are encouraged to think about portraiture’s potential to engage with the social and political landscape of our time. The competition is named for Virginia Outwin Boochever (1920 – 2005), a former Portrait Gallery volunteer whose generous gift endowed the program.

PROJECT SUMMARY

This project seeks to capitalize on planned infrastructure changes to Altoona’s commuter-heavy 1st Avenue. The artist is asked to consider means of integration with civic improvements already in motion. Because these improvements are planned in phases, the sites and opportunities are diffuse. The artist will have the opportunity to consider specific features along the redeveloping corridor and/or envision a comprehensive approach for the span of the project. Artists selected to create proposals will be asked to develop works with flexible scale in accordance with the phases and to illustrate what can be expected at different levels of investment.

When considering the temporal qualities of metalwork, it is often its endurance over time that comes to mind. Jewelry is passed from one generation to the next, is tied to memory and intimacy, and historically, the stability, durability, and preciousness of its materials added value to its composition. With the Studio Craft movement coming to the fore in the 1950s, the correlation between value and material was subverted, and the possibilities of expression in the field expanded dramatically. This exhibition seeks to explore the notion of “ephemerality” in its widest definition, showcasing work that explores transience, is comprised of impermanent materials, incorporates memorabilia and “ephemera,” and/or exists through time-based performance and photography. This online juried exhibition intends to represent the diverse work and making practices of our membership and is open to jewelry, body ornamentation, sculpture, installation, photography, and the like.
