"Discovery Thematic Residency"
0000-00-00 until 0000-00-00
Banff Centre for the Arts
Banff, , CA Canada

Discovery Thematic Residency: Curiosity and purpose are two signposts for discovery and abstract play, located somewhere between investigation and invention. Discovery is significant to art and science, suggesting a modernist narrative of unfolding events as well as a non-linear crisscrossing of borders. Indeed, scientific investigation and the creation of art are inherently about discovery as they re-invent, realign and transform disparate elements to create new territories or redefine old ones.

Like most residencies, Discovery is meant to cross the borders of art production, focussing on the importance of ideas and themes in the work rather than a specific media. We anticipate that many artists working with ideas of post-colonialism, games design and data sets, biotechnology or self-discovery, to name just a few, will be attracted to work with others sharing similar approaches to the theme. We encourage artists involved in a range of production to be involved including digital technology, ceramics, photography, painting, printmaking, sculpture, etc. Art writers and curators who are working on projects in and around the theme are also encouraged to apply.

The thematic residency provides time, studios and facilities for research, experimentation and production of artworks and ideas in media and visual art. While residents spend most of their time on independent research and production, interaction is enriched through presentations, group discussion and less formal exchanges among a community of peers. Residents engage in discussions about the selected theme. Residencies are open to critics, curators and art historians as well as media and visual artists.
