FURNACE OPEN CALL TO ALL
ARTISTS DEADLINE: April 1st
THE FRANKLIN FURNACE FUND FOR PERFORMANCE ART
2002-03 Supported by Jerome Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts, Franklin Furnace awards grants between $2,000 and $5,000 to performance artists, allowing them to produce major works anywhere in the State of New York. Artists from all areas of the world are invited to apply.
THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2003 Franklin Furnace offers artists an honorarium (this year of $5,000) and a residency facilitated by Franklin Furnace, for a 2-4 month duration at a physical or online venue appropriate to your proposed work. For THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2003, we hope to continue to expand the technology available to our artists through Parsons and beyond. The residencies may take place in the Spring or Fall of 2003. Artists who are interested in developing new artwork for the Internet are encouraged to apply. See below for details on HOW TO APPLY. Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. We believe that this peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work. All applicants are automatically considered for both categories of awards. Every year the panel changes, as the definition of "emerging artist," the notion of "live art on the Internet," and the definition of "performance art" itself changes, so if at first you don't succeed, try again. Since its inception in 1985 THE FRANKLIN FURNACE FUND FOR PERFORMANCE ART has boosted the careers of such emerging artists as Papo Colo, Karen Finley, John Fleck, Holly Hughes, Cathy Weis, Pamela Sneed, Murray Hill, Tanya Barfield and Patty Chang.This year's esteemed selection panel consisted of artists and curators Patty Chang, Garland Farwell, Zhang Ga, Carmin Karasic, Christiane Paul and Mark Tribe. This year's Fundwinners are Tish Benson, Christine Carson, George Ferrandi, Stanya Kahn, Cary Peppermint and Tadej Pogacar.
THE FUTURE OF THE PRESENT 2002 artists are Kathleen Brandt and Brian Lonsway, Jeff Gompertz, and G.H. Hovagimyan. The full schedule and project descriptions are available on our website).
