JamFactory > FUSE Glass Artist Residency (Australia)
Awarded biennially in alternate years to the FUSE Glass Prize, JamFactory’s FUSE Glass Artist Residency aims to create significant opportunities for established, mid-career artists working in glass. The residency will enable a selected artist to work with skilled assistants, take risks and experiment with the development of new work using or incorporating hot blown glass.
The residency will run for up to 4 weeks at JamFactory in Adelaide between March and August 2021. Applicants may wish to propose splitting the residency into 2 x 2-week periods or a shorter more concentrated period.
A further outcome of the Residency will be a solo exhibition at Carrick Hill – the iconic South Australian heritage site, due to open impressive new purpose-built galleries in November 2020. The exhibition will launch in late 2021 and should include work created during or as a result of the Residency along with other appropriate/existing work. The exhibition will be a co-production between JamFactory and Carrick Hill with the scale and nature of the show to be determined through negotiation with the Recipient. The exhibition will be widely promoted, accompanied by a printed (and online) catalogue, an opening event and public programmes.
The Residency will include:
12 four-hour glass-blowing sessions with 2 assistants.
Self-contained accommodation in the JamFactory apartment.
Provision of studio workspace.
Access to the cold-workshop and very basic lamp-working and kiln facilities.
An allowance of $2,000 to assist with living expenses.
Return flights and transfers or costs related to car travel to and from Adelaide.
Contribution towards return freight for work produced.
Applicants must be permanent residents or citizens of Australia or New Zealand and must have a demonstrated professional practice as an artist working with glass of at least 8 years.
Deadline: 11 September 2020
