2009 residencies for artists, writers, musicians, curators and cultural producers

Elsewhere, an arts production site and experimental museum in downtown Greensboro, NC, is seeking artists, curators, writers, musicians, and cultural producers for residencies during the Summer and Fall 2009 seasons. Set within a former thrift store housing a 58-year collection of American surplus, thrift, and antiques, Elsewhere invites experimental creators to utilize the immense collection of objects to pursue site-specific material, conceptual, and/or technologically-based projects.

Elsewhere’s building—two storefronts on the ground floor, a 14-room boarding house on the second, and warehouse on the third—provides dynamic architectures for the creation and installation of works. Artists live and work within transforming installations; these interactive environments become platforms for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making as an ongoing process of exchange in community. Within a store where nothing is for sale, Elsewhere offers an unparalleled framework for creative practices, processes and productions outside the traditional gallery, museum, and residency systems.

See the complete call for artists and application deadlines at http://www.elsewhereelsewhere.org/residencies.html
Creators of all kinds and collaborative groups can email residencies@elsewhereelsewhere.org for an application and brochure. We review applications at the end of each month.

Painting Grad MFA 2003, hey all I went here on residency. Heads up it is extremely extremely...raw. The bed I was given to sleep in and been pulled off the street, and all the artists there tended to get sick from living in an old abandoned building. Do this residency at your own risk.
