In 2016, we are deepening our investigation of space, place and community, dedicating the winter session to spatial design and the summer session to performance art, directed by guest curators in art and architecture.
WINTER SESSION: January 8-31, 2016
FOCUS: Spatial Inquiry
CURATED BY: Sameena Sitabkhan, Architect, LEED AP
Using Guapamacátaro and its expanse as your lab, explore speculative architectural territories, exploit hidden infrstructures, create manufactured ecologies, and/or incubate bio-social experiments. Work may speak to larger themes of scarcity, resiliency, equity, private/public space, and should result in sculpture, installation, landscape architecture, land art, communal infrastructure, or other spatial manifestations, either temporal or permanent.
Application Deadline: September 20th, 2015, at midnight (Eastern Standard Time).
Acceptance Notification: October 10th, 2015.
TO APPLY: Please send a 150 – 250 word participation proposal, CV and work samples to: firstname.lastname@example.org by September 20th, 2015. For additional information, please email Sameena Sitabkhan at the same address.
SUMMER SESSION: May 20 – June 13, 2016
FOCUS: Performance Art
CURATED BY: Dino Dinco
Performance art curator, maker and writer Dino Dinco is assembling an intimate, diverse group of 10 – 12 performance art / live art makers. During their stay, performance artists-in-residence will use the hacienda grounds as a laboratory for discovery, contemplation and development, and the chance to engage with the local community. Two performance exhibitions will be presented during the residency (at both the Guapamacátaro hacienda and in the nearby town of Maravatío): at the halfway mark, and at the end of the residency. Please note: This residency is specifically geared for practitioners of performance art. We kindly request that artists working in the performing arts (traditional music performance, dance, acting, performance poetry, etc.), please not apply.
Application Deadline: December 15th, 2015, at midnight (Eastern Standard Time).
Acceptance Notification: January 30th, 2016
TO APPLY: Please send a 150 – 250 word participation proposal, CV and work samples to: email@example.com by 15 December 2015. For additional information, please email Dino Dinco at the same address.
