APPLICATION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 15, 2013

With the generous support of Carroll / Fletcher Gallery, a London based contemporary art gallery, TASML is pleased to announce its new artist residence award: TASML | Carroll Fletcher Chinese Artist Residence Award. The award will provide emerging Chinese media artists with an unique opportunity to engage with cutting edge research and production at the intersection of art, science and technology in some of the most innovative media art and design laboratories around the world. From March 2013 until February 2015, two artists will be selected annually through an international open-call for proposal submissions.

In collaboration with Eyebeam the award allows one selected artist to work from 4 – 6 weeks with one of the most innovative art and technology centers operating today: Eyebeam. The awardee will receive a stipend to cover production, travel, accommodation and living expenses in New York.

Applications must be submitted in Chinese and English, and the applicant must have sufficient knowledge of English language for communication

We are asking what are the ground-breaking works that will positively change cultural relationships to new creative technologies? What does technology even mean in 2013 and how can it be creatively used and misused in a way that pushes boundaries and explodes notions of what is possible? If you are actively solving questions like these and could use TASML and Eyebeam’s help in realizing your work, let us know by applying online now!

This residency in collaboration with and hosted at Eyebeam is looking to support atypical new work that is deeply examining and critically challenging culture’s relationship to technology and will consider all proposals that are prepared to positively shift the dialogue. TASML will grant a minimum of $4,000 to each selected residency project but will consider requests for additional project-based funding up to an additional $2,000 maximum. The resident artist will be determined by the quality of applications.

Selection Criteria

Applications are selected based on:

· Quality of concept

· Quality of past work

· Innovative nature of the project

Send application (CV, project proposal) to tasml.tsinghua@gmail.com before September 15, 2013

 

About Eyebeam:

Eyebeam is the leading not-for-profit art and technology center in the United States.

Founded in 1997, Eyebeam was conceived as a non-profit art and technology center dedicated to exposing broad and diverse audiences to new technologies and media arts, while simultaneously establishing and demonstrating new media as a significant genre of cultural production.

Since then, Eyebeam has supported some 245 fellowships and residencies for artists and creative technologists; we’ve run an active education program for youth, artists’ professional development and community outreach; and have mounted an extensive series of public programs. We produce approximately 4 exhibitions and 40 workshops, performances, and events annually.

Today, Eyebeam offers residencies and fellowships for artists and technologists working in a wide range of media. At any given time, there are up to 20 resident artists and fellows onsite at Eyebeam’s 15,000-square foot Chelsea offices and Labs, developing new projects and creating work for open dissemination through online, primarily open-source, publication as well as a robust calendar of public programming that includes free exhibitions, lectures and panels, participatory workshops, live performances and educational series.

EYEBEAM VALUES: Critical questioning of the status quo and a belief in progress and risk-taking are core values of Eyebeam. This has been demonstrated through over 15 years of experimentation via creative use and misuse of technology. This approach has resulted in the development of creative platforms, tools and exciting works of art.
