Fermilab Artist in Residence Program for 2017

Artist in residence will interact with scientists at the laboratory, learn about their research, see how it connects to society, and then use this information to create a body of work.

Deadline: August 23, 2016
Location: USA

Fermilab is America’s national laboratory dedicated to particle physics research. To initiate and stimulate communication and interactions among scientists, artists and the public, the laboratory has created an Artist in Residence program and seeks applications for the 2017 cycle. The Fermilab artist in residence will interact with scientists at the laboratory, learn about their research, see how it connects to society, and then use this information to create a body of work, ideally leading to presentations in the local community and an exhibition of the artwork at Fermilab and other places. A small stipend will be provided by the Fermi Research Alliance. Currently no housing is available.

Applying to the Artist in Residence Program

Applications and inquires for the 2017 Artist in Residence should be submitted to Art@fnal.gov.
The application period opens May 23, 2016 closes August 23, 2016. Artists might be contacted for an interview and a presentation of examples of their portfolio.
The next residency begins January 2017.

ASCI International Open Call: “SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: FOOD“

18th international art-sci juried exhibition organized by Art & Science Collaborations September 17, 2016 – February 26, 2017 at the New York Hall of Science

Deadline: May 22, 2016
Location: USA

“SCIENCE INSPIRES ART: FOOD“ will document artwork that reflect on the topic of FOOD from all angles: from the historical record to the elite haute-cuisine of today’s “molecular gastronomy”; as a physical material for making or inspiring art, or a performance medium for creating community. We are seeking 2D images of original art executed in any media.

Since FOOD is on the frontlines of our future sustainability, we want to see what artists are thinking about and creating in the face of this new complexity. What are the artistic reactions to the science of food security and safety, nutrition, food health disorders or obsessions, edible front yards, eating insects, or even to the recent technological innovation of “printing” a personalized 3D meal on a plate, or growing furniture (and future houses) out of mushrooms!
