Guidelines for Visual and Performing Arts
The Visual Arts Program at Wave Hill presents the work of contemporary artists who explore the dynamic relationship between nature, culture and site through exhibitions in Glyndor Gallery and the Sunroom Project Space, and through the Winter Workspace Program and generated@wavehill. Artists may apply online to General Opportunities, the Sunroom Project Space, and the Van Lier Visual Artist Fellowship. Program descriptions and selection processes are listed below.
Sunroom Project Space Program
DEADLINE: APRIL 20, 2015
INFORMATION SESSION: SUN, MARCH 22, 2015 at 2:30PM. RSVP TO SUNROOMPROJECT@WAVEHILL.ORG.
The Sunroom Project Space is a venue for New York-area emerging artists to develop a new body of work or site-specific project as a solo exhibition in one of the two windowed sunrooms in Wave Hill’s Glyndor House. Five artists will be selected for six-week solo exhibitions from April to November 2016. Work in all media will be considered and artists are encouraged to respond to and engage with this unique space. A stipend and exhibition support is provided. Artists apply online and must submit an artist statement, résumé, work samples and a preliminary concept. This opportunity is open to emerging artists who live within a 50-mile radius of the Bronx, and have a record of solid achievement and potential, and who are not represented by a commercial gallery, not a student, and have not previously shown at Wave Hill.
Van Lier Visual Artist Fellowship
NEXT DEADLINE WILL BE IN SUMMER 2015. CHECK BACK IN JULY FOR APPLICATION GUIDELINES.
This one-year fellowship, administered on behalf of the Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund of the New York Community Trust, provides valuable mentorship and exhibition opportunities, including learning from the curatorial staff about the creation and interpretation of exhibitions and arts programming and working with arts professionals to define career paths over the course of the program (January–December 2015). Van Lier Fellows will be given a studio space during the Winter Workspace Program and a solo show in the Sunroom Project Space. Current and past Van Lier fellows include Tammy Nguyen (2014), Alexandra Phillips (2014), Onyedika Chuke (2013), Francisco Donoso (2013), Nova Jiang (2012), and Cameron Rowland (2012).
Eligibility: This fellowship is open to New York City-based artists who are 30 years of age or younger and are not currently enrolled in a degree-granting program. It supports emerging artists from culturally diverse backgrounds and underserved communities.
Application Deadline: Next Deadline will be in December 2015. Check back in October for application guidelines.
The curators identify artists for Glyndor Gallery, Wave Hill House, the Winter Workspace Program and generated@wavehill in many different ways. One way for artists to introduce themselves to the curatorial staff is through the General Opportunities application. Artists who wish to submit their work for consideration for future opportunities are strongly encouraged to visit before submitting. Applications are only accepted through our online application portal, and not by email or post. Submissions will be reviewed within three months after the deadline.
Wave Hill has a rich tradition of performing arts indoors and out. We accept unsolicited submissions in the form of an email with links to websites and audio and video samples. Interested artists may write to performing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the high number of submissions we receive, we respond only to those artists whose work fits the programs being planned. Performance possibilties include:
- An indoor concert seriess in Armor Hall with presentations from October through April. The focus is traditional chamber music, jazz, and performances for families. Artists with projects that address the natural world are encouraged to apply.
- "Sunset Wednesdays" is a series that includes outdoor evening concerts each summer, focused on the musical cultures of the Bronx.
- Occasional site-specific outdoor dance performances take place with choreography that responds to the natural setting of the gardens.
- Musicians may be engaged for special programs and events.
