New York Arts Practicum, Call for Applications Summer 2017

Call for Entries: New York Arts Practicum Summer 2017 session…

tumblr_ns9qbpvekx1svb7sjo1_500
Applications are being accepted for the 2017 New York Arts Practicum, a summer arts institute where participants experientially learn to bridge their lives as art students into lives as artists in the world. The program is structured around apprenticeships with mentor artists, a critique seminar where participants produce work without access to their institutional facilities, and site visits to artist workspaces, galleries, and museums.
The intensive eight-week program offers participants a structured environment to experience the challenges of life as an artist and demystifies the many ways one can be an artist today. Mentees work in their mentor’s studio two to three days per week, meet Monday and Tuesday evenings for a critique seminar, and convene Fridays for site visits in artist studios, galleries, and museums. Past participants called the experience: demystifying, life changing, and an inspirational reality check.
By working with an artist on a day-to-day basis, participants gain a view of their near futures as artists, learning models for negotiating a creative life outside of school. Regular mentors include: Brendan Fernandes, Kate Gilmore, Pablo Helguera, Marisa Morán Jahn, Steve Lambert, Simone Leigh, Jen Liu, Eva & Franco Mattes, Mary Mattingly, Jennifer & Kevin McCoy, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Not An Alternative, William Powhida, Doreen Garner & Kenya (Robinson), Brad Troemel, Penelope Umbrico, Clement Valla, Marina Zurkow.
Mentors lead critiques structured around developing strategies for creating work without institutional studio facilities. Practicum mentors lead seminars on their work, or related topic; these sessions are intimate views into their in-progress work, with a focus on process.
Program Director Michael Mandiberg facilitates critique seminar, and guides site visits to artist studios, galleries, and museums, many of which will include conversations with curators and gallerists.
Past Mentors and Site Visits:
Last year’s mentors and visitors included: Joeonna Bellorado-Samuels at Jack Shainman Gallery, Ingrid Burrington, Taeyoon Choi, Angela Dufresne, Kerry Downey, Brendan Fernandes, Doreen Garner & Kenya (Robinson), Mariam Ghani at the Queens Museum, Ingrid Haftel at the Center for Urban Pedagogy, Heather Hart, Pablo Helguera, Lindsay Howard, Marisa Morán Jahn, Octavia Knox at Pace Gallery, Steve Lambert, Ernest Larsen & Sherry Millner, Kristin Lucas & Joe McKay, Jacqueline Mabey, Mary Mattingly, Jennifer & Kevin McCoy, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Daniel Palmer, Stephanie Pereira at Kickstarter, Julie Perini, William Powhida, Hatuey Ramos-Fermín at the Laundromat Project, Greg Sholette, Paul Soulellis, Dannielle Tegeder, Brad Troemel, Stephen Truax at Cheim and Read, Penelope Umbrico, Clement Valla, Stephen Zacks and members of Collaborative Projects, and Marina Zurkow.

MICA Photo is pleased to announce the reception this evening for the current work on display in the Wilgus Gallery, “Seeking Stephanie”, by Evie Metz. This opening reception features a special curation of Evie’s photographs from her ongoing series, Seeking Stephanie.
“Reacting to what I see, I capture moments where I find connections. As though I’ve found another piece to my puzzle, another line to poem. Accumulating many photographs, I construct my narrative about identity, the beauties of life often overlooked, and what I mean to seek oneself.”  ~ Evie Metz

MICA Photo student Ian Kline has work currently installed at the Skylab Gallery…

MICA Photo is proud to announce that Ian Kline has a show currently running at the Skylab Gallery…

“It all happened so quickly; we all ended up at this house on the edge of the city. How it got there, how we got there, was the confusing part. It was as if by moving here we went through a black hole that spit us into what was supposed to be this perfect place; but within this perfect place there was a darkness lurking right outside of the yard, slowly creeping in. The only thing I knew was that I’d be leaving shortly after the leaves fell.”

Ian Kline’s 812 photographs were made at a time of in-between, a time of confusion, hesitation, and quiet tension. Ian Kline wishes he could go back, but he knows he has already moved out.
