City Without Walls (cWOW), in collaboration with Saint Barnabas Health Care System, NewarkWORKS, and Newark Public Schools, seeks an artist-in-residence for its Newark New Media residency, education, and exhibition program at the intersection of new technology and contemporary art.
TRAINING + MAJOR EXHIBITION
The new media artist in residence, working with a team of high-school apprentices, will create a major
new work of new media art that will be exhibited at a prominent Newark venue. The artist will receive a
stipend of $1,700 and an equipment/materials budget. Ten high-school students will apprentice under the
artist’s supervision in ten weekly three-hour afterschool training sessions at Barringer High School’s newly
equipped technology lab from mid October through December, 2009. The final artwork will be presented in
June 2010 at a high-profile cWOW exhibition, possibly, at the Prudential Center’s state-of-the-art 4,800
square-foot outdoor urban screen seen by thousands of daily commuters.
Open to all cWOW members, including new members who join cWOW by the submission deadline with a
minimum annual donation of $35 for individual members or $25 for students and seniors. Artist member work will become part of cWOW’s registry, and will be reviewed by every curator for every show that you select within a year of joining.
NEW MEDIA ART ONLY
All innovative interpretations of new media art will be considered, requiring some critical use of digital
technology in the art-making process and product. Interactive gaming and/or short-form video for largescale
urban screens, and an integral incorporation of youth perspectives are especially encouraged.
After joining online, please email your proposal to email@example.com with “NNM” in the subject line and
upload your entry materials at www.cWOW.org. Entry materials must include: (A) short
proposal/statement regarding the artwork to be created, (B) any required materials/equipment budget,
(C) ten-week curriculum, (D) resume, and (E) up to twenty images, five videos, and/or URLs.
