DEADLINE: MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013
RESIDENCY: MAY 2013 – SEPTEMBER 2013
EXHIBITION: SEPTEMBER 2013 - MARCH 2014
2013 APPLICATION GUIDELINES: EMERGING ARTIST FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
Emerging Artist Fellowship recipients are granted financial support in the amount of $5,000, a residency in the outdoor studio (beginning in May 2013), and access to facilities, materials, equipment, and technical assistance to create a work for the annual Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition. Fellows are also given the administrative assistance to do additional fundraising for their project, procure in-kind support, and pursue future placement for their work. A printed broshure and an electronic publication will accompany the exhibition and program.
Fellowship artists are selected through an open application process. Proposals are reviewed by Socrates staff and curatorial advisors composed of past EAF recipients, prominent curators, artists, writers, gallerists, and arts administrators. Following the first round of selections, Socrates staff members will contact applicants individually to discuss proposed projects before final selection and confirmation of fellowship.
Once selected, Socrates staff members will discuss project proposals in greater detail and assist each Emerging Artist Fellow with the development, engineering, and fabrication of their project. During the studio residency, there will be two mandatory progress meetings with each Fellow that are meant to assess progress, trouble shoot any issues, and review next steps.
Fellowships are awarded to artists who would benefit from the opportunity and are New York State residents. Artists who are enrolled in a school, college, or university are not eligible for the Emerging Artist Fellowship program. Artists who have applied before (but never shown at Socrates) are eligible to apply again.
Artists seeking a Socrates Sculpture Park grant and exhibition opportunity are strongly encouraged to visit the Park and review previous EAF exhibitions and artworks on Socrates digital online archive (Socrates Archive) before submitting their applications. Applicants must take into account the site's rugged, urban outdoor environment and be aware that installations in the Park are subject to final approval by Socrates staff and must meet safety requirements to be able to withstand the effects of weather and public use. Visiting the site will give applicants a clearer idea of the factors that effect installations at the Park and an overview of the facilities that the Park has to offer, including the tools and equipment available in the studio and the materials and resources available in Long Island City.
When applying online, you will not be able to view the application in its entirety. With this in mind, please review the Application Form and Guidelines (below) BEFORE applying and prepare all application materials prior to applying online.
