Pioneer Works is pleased to announce its 2021 Open Call for Visual Arts, Music, and Technology Residents. The application portal will be open September 1 through September 30, 2020. Alumni Visual Arts Resident Maia Chao will jury Visual Arts applicants alongside artist Derrick Adams. The Music Residency jury will consist of Alumni Music Resident Amirtha Kidambi and musician Naeem Juwan. Alumni Tech Resident Salome Asega and multi-media artist Rachel Rossin will review applicants as the Technology Residency jury. During the selection process, the jury will seek out candidates who demonstrate artistic excellence in work outside the existing models and “norms” of their field, whose practice can make use of our unique facilities and collaborative environment, and those with an interdisciplinary practice. Candidates with an interest in educating the public on the progression of their creative practice through classes, public programs, and performances will be strongly considered. Selected residents will be notified by December 1, 2020.
