Call for Artists | Rooted and Replicated: Artists Investigating Institutional Frameworks

May 24 – June 28, 2023
Deadline to apply: May 17, 2023
Full details and how to apply here

Rooted and Replicated: Artists Investigating Institutional Frameworks will look at the existing frameworks that support a scarcity mindset. The method we are using to assemble the team is the Artist Open Call framework. Our practice will combine conversation for contemplating core questions and the creation of art to understand and perhaps demonstrate new ideas/concepts to dismantle scarcity for ourselves and within non-profit art institutions. 

Initiated by artists Shelly Bahl, Daria Dorosh, and Yvonne Shortt, 5 additional NYC-based artists will be selected to participate in this research and art production-based project. This team of 8 multidisciplinary artists will meet weekly for six weeks to engage in conversation and art making. The group will meet twice in-person and four times via Zoom. Attendance at all six meetings is required, beginning Wednesday, May 24th, 6-8pm (see call for all session dates). Artists must provide a short paragraph (250 words) about their interest in participating in this specific investigative project to ensure that each applicant understands and commits to the scope of the project.
