Moon Geese

March 28, 2012 · Print This Article

Moon Goose Colony – episode 4: HATCHING from Agnes Meyer-Brandis on Vimeo.

 

Yesterday I posted something in Art21‘s “Centerfield” column about some of Katie Paterson’s work. One of the works discussed centers on a Morse code broadcast transmitted to the moon’s surface. Paterson then captured and re-transcribed the same message it’s reflected, return journey. In a similar spirit, I read about Agnese Meyer-Brandis’ “Moon Goose Analogue” on We Make Money Not Art  and thought I could post it here. Brandis is in the midst of a very long project to breed Moon Geese — geese who are slated to travel with her to the moon in 2027.You can read more about this project by going here, and in the meantime check out this amazing, sometimes Wes-Anderson-feel trailer!

This is Ox-Bow’s 102nd year as a school of art and artists’ residency. We are proud to celebrate our history and the thousands of artists who have passed through Ox-Bow’s campus since 1910.

Each year Ox-Bow evolves and responds to new developments in the visual arts in order to serve artists, students, and the community in relevant ways. This year’s course selection reflects our commitment to developing a dynamic curriculum that bends genres into new formats, but also has deep roots in traditional craft-based practices. It is this dynamic between tradition and innovation that makes taking a course at Ox-Bow such a singular and rich experience. The group of faculty and visiting artists for 2012 is comprised of ambitious thinkers and makers, and we are excited to have them join us in the same remarkable landscape that inspired Ox-Bow’s founding 102 years ago. We look forward to seeing you on campus this summer!

Anyone, whether they are a degree-seeking student, or a life-long learner can take a course. Courses can be taken for SAIC credit or for non-credit

SAIC advanced registration begins in-person on Monday, March 12th at 8:30 AM in the Ox-Bow office. General Registration opens March 26th online through our website, www.ox-bow.org.

Residencies-Fall

September 2- October 6, 2012

Two week to five week residencies for artists

Fall at Ox-Bow is dedicated to the residency program. It is a unique time to gather artists from around the world, working in a wide variety of media. Given the small nature of the program, residents have a remarkable opportunity to create a close community. Most nights feature slide lectures, studio visits, or informal conversation that can open an individual practice to discussion, engagement, and challenge.

During the fall season, Artists’ in Residence have the opportunity to work in studios not available during the summer session. They also enjoy a more intimate community of like-minded, and diverse professionals. The fall season is also an ideal time to propose group or collaborative work.

Deadline: May 11th, 2012

Cost: $250 per week, (includes room and board and use of studio), due at the time the residency is awarded.

Financial aid available, see application to apply.

Fall residency scholarships and stipend made possible with support form the Joan Mitchell Foundation will be available. These funds are awarded to 10 individual painters and sculptors who are able to spend 4-5 weeks at Ox-Bow during the fall session. Selected artists will have their residency fees waived and receive a stipend after completing their residency.  Apply on the application. Please include a brief statement of financial need.

Additional funding for the Fall and Summer Residency program is provided by the John Hartigan Memorial Scholarship for Painters (acrylic and/or oils).

 

Residencies-Summer

June 3 – August 18, 2012.

Two-week Residencies for Arts Faculty

Over the summer, Ox-Bow offers 2-week residencies for artists who are also faculty members in the arts, in an adjunct or full time capacity. This program is designed to give teaching artists the much needed time to focus on their own work throughout the summer and also to connect to other faculty who are teaching at Ox-Bow.

Artists are selected upon the merit of their work and written statements describing their proposed use of the residency. During their stay, artists are encouraged to present a slide lecture or reading of their work and to participate in the community life at Ox-Bow. Recipients receive a small private studio and room and board. Please note that the classroom studio facilities are not available to ARs.

Deadline: April 6. 2012

Cost: $550 for 2-weeks, (includes room and board and studio use), due at the time the residency is awarded.

This summer Harold Arts offers three sessions, as well as a few weekend opportunities for those of you with tighter summer schedules.

Residencies at Harold Arts offer participants shared and individual studio facilities, comfortable accommodations, and chef-prepared meals. For musicians and others interested in working with sound we have our Poolhouse recording studio; a huge room, a wide array of gear, and engineers ready and willing to plan and execute your audio endeavors. Other facilities available for residents include modest wood-working facilities and and a wood-fired kiln for ceramic works.

And of course, the rolling hills and majestic white pine forests of Haven Tree Farm are yours to explore.
