Opportunities at Eyelevel

FIELDWORK

ARTIST AS RESEARCHER

Fieldwork is a platform for artists to conduct and present research as it relates to their practice in a setting outside of an exhibitionary complex. The nature of this residency allows for a variety of publics to engage with all parts of the artistic process and lays the groundwork for the artist/s to engage with individuals outside of their discipline. There is much opportunity for collaboration with other institutions, particularly drawing on a non-art audience through partnerships. Artistic results from the residencies may come in the form of performances, screenings, workshops, roundtables, texts, and more. Our intention is to support the artist in presenting their work as a process, rather than a final product.

Though this is research driven, artists are encouraged to give a presentation during the course of their residency. This may take any shape or form the resident deems most suited to their research, in consultation with Eyelevel Gallery. Please suggest presentation strategies in your proposal—traditional artist’s talk, workshop, podcast, walking tour, community roundtable, blog or zine, etc.

1-2 artists will be selected for residencies between 4 and 8 weeks duration. Start date is as early as the beginning of August and end date as late as the end of November. Eyelevel will provide administrative support in the form of budget management, and publicity. Workspace may be arranged depending on the project. This project hinges on the artist’s research taking place outside of a traditional artist-run centre gallery context.
