Suitable for self-directed and/or research based projects, open to artists at any stage in their career in any medium (including but not limited to visual art, writing, video, movement, performance, social practice etc.). The hosts are especially interested in working with artists who have strategies for reaching audiences without the mediation of traditional institutions or structures. They are looking for artists who would prefer to have a straightforward connection to society without having their work regarded as mere craft. They wish to support and learn from artists looking “to produce a different kind of art” who realize it is necessary to step through the standardization and professionalization it promises, and discover a way to access whatever may be on the other side—even if what one finds does not resemble art as we currently understand it… those that believe that art can not be reduced to an economic activity.
