Call to Artists: Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico
CALL TO ARTISTS
Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico
Visual artists with an established practice are invited to apply for Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico, a four-week program designed to foster the integration of history into contemporary art practices. The Lab is presented as a collaboration between 516 ARTS, Kolaj Institute, and Albuquerque Museum’s photo archives.
The Lab looks at how our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures. Participating artists are asked to work from their own people’s history, to confront that history, and to imagine a future that offers justice, fairness, and support for all people. A goal of the lab is a proposal for a body of artwork to be considered for a group exhibition at 516 ARTS in 2022.
Race, conflict, and colonialism are themes that run through the history of America and while these topics inform national mythologies they often go unexplored and unimagined in our civic discourse. People often operate with a different history than that of their neighbors. How we understand our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures. For artists to speak to society, we must raise up all the histories of our community.
Using the photography archives of the Albuquerque Museum and other historical resources in the community, the focus of this project is the multiple histories of different peoples who have made what we now call New Mexico and the surrounding land their home.
The Artist Lab equips artists with tools and strategies for picking up the unfinished work of history and speaking to contemporary civic discourse around social, economic, and environmental issues. Through interactive online sessions, collections research, and visits with historians, archivists, and curators, artists explore their process and practice; present a slideshow of their work; receive supportive, critical, curatorial feedback about their ideas; and discuss strategies for making art that speaks to the contemporary moment.
Over the course of four weeks, artists will participate in online meetings, engage in one-on-one sessions with faculty, and complete independent assignments. Sessions are one hour to an hour-and-a-half long and include slideshows, artist presentations, and discussions. Guest artists share their practices and lead discussions. Specialists introduce participants to collections and archives and speak to the histories of New Mexico’s multiple peoples.
Artists complete the Lab with a project proposal for a group exhibition at 516 ARTS in 2022. The exhibition will give audiences an opportunity to consider how our contemporary discourse is a product of multiple histories in a constant state of negotiation with one another. Our understanding of history shapes how we live in the present. The exhibition is curated by L. Kasimu Harris, Alicia Inez Guzmán, and Ric Kasini Kadour. 516 ARTS has dedicated a fund to commission artworks for the exhibition, in part, to artists who successfully complete the Lab.
WHO IS THIS FOR?
The Artist Lab is intended for self-motivated artists, at any stage in their career, who want to develop a practice of working with historic sites or history associations to create and present art that embeds itself in non-traditional spaces and speaks to a general community about contemporary issues. The Lab is open to artists anywhere in the world. Artists from Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian communities are encouraged to apply.
The cost of the Lab is $750 per artist; however, no artist will be turned away for lack of funds and the organizers will work with artists to build a financial aid package.
516 ARTS is providing a limited number of scholarships to artists from New Mexico, artists from Mexico whose work focuses on the US/Mexico border, and artists who are Native American, Alaskan Native, or First Nations.

Revival: A Call for Radical Care
To Apply: Visit https://sulfurstudios.org/call-for-entry/revival
As a culture, we have been indoctrinated into social norms that have driven us to lose touch with who we really are. This past year we have suffered through the collective trauma of the pandemic and the awakening of many people to the systemic racism and injustices present in our society. There is a common misconception that our world is changing, but it isn’t. The facade is crumbling.
In order to reveal our true selves, we must practice radical self and collective care. As the Nap Ministry states, “rest is a form of resistance because it pushes back against capitalism and white supremacy.”
Revival is a multidisciplinary exhibition that attempts to challenge how we interact with the world around us so we can begin the healing process.
What role do the arts play in the healing process? How do radical self and collective care inform your artistic practice? What strategies have you been using to facilitate radical care for yourself and your community?
We will accept all media for this call. Artists are strongly encouraged to submit work that pushes the boundaries of rest and radical care conceptually, aesthetically, or both.
Up to 4 pieces may be submitted per entry - $25 per entry for non Sulfur Studios Members, $15 per entry for current Studio Members.
Work must weigh less than 75 pounds and fit through a standard size doorway. Shipping and insurance to and from the gallery will be the responsibility of the artist. Art is displayed at the artists risk. Sulfur Studios will handle all sales and a 30% commission will be retained by the gallery.
Entries Due: January 29th, 2021 by 11:59PM
Artists notified: February 1st, 2021
Work received by gallery before: February 22nd, 2021
Opening Reception: March 5th from 6 - 9PM

OPEN CALL - Canvia
We're an arts and technology startup seeking artist contributions for our first project Canvia, a new way of experiencing, promoting and earning from art.
Canvia is a digital display network that brings art into homes, offices, hotels and other spaces throughout the world like never before. The high-definition Canvia device samples the ambient light in the room and uses the data to adjust the display, resulting in images that can be mistaken for actual paintings or prints. It connects to an online library of art, enabling users to choose and explore works to suit changing moods, occasions and contexts.
Following a very successful first year of sales to residential art collectors, offices and hotels in the U.S., Canada and Europe, we are now expanding our library of contemporary artwork. We're interested in licensing the works of artists of all types and backgrounds as digital reproductions for use on Canvia's platform. Artists' work is only accessible to our users and the license does not affect any sales of original artwork or reproductions, nor does it keep you from displaying your work elsewhere online.
For a limited time, there is no cost to artists to exhibit their work on Canvia's platform.
In addition to the obvious benefit of being featured on thousands of walls around the world, Canvia offers a variety of other benefits including the sharing of subscription revenue with its partner artists in the form of royalties.
Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2021
For more information, please visit www.canvia.art or contact submissions [op] palacio [punt] life.
