ELSEWHERE ARTIST COLLABORATIVE

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 Spring, 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.

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

Elsewhere’s building—two full stores on the ground level, 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 changing installations, engaging interactive environments for re-conceptualizing the theory and practice of art-making. Experimenting with museum-as-medium within a store where nothing is for sale, Elsewhere offers an unparalleled framework for merging art practice and everyday life. The complete call for artists is available at www.elsewhereelsewhere.org/callforartists.html.
