Application Deadline: August 14, 2022, 11:59pm EST
The Queens Museum (QM) is pleased to announce an open call for its new two-year In Situ Artist Fellowship to be awarded to three artists.
Each artist selected for this two-year fellowship (October 2022-September 2024) will receive rent-free studio space at the Museum and an annualized salaried position at $45,000 per year with full benefits. Artists will develop their practice in collaboration with specific areas of the Museum’s work and Queens constituencies. Prioritizing co-creation, relationship building, research and ambitious experimentation, artists will develop a solo exhibition to open in Spring 2024 that will result from their work with QM communities.
In Situ fellows will work a minimum of three days per week as a key part of the QM team, together with the Museum’s constituencies, building on existing connections with communities and developing new ones. They will attend weekly All Staff meetings and participate in other meetings and Learning Sessions. They will be expected to make use of the studios and facilities which are accessible seven days per week.
Artists will be invited to develop work with one of the following programs and research areas:
La Jornada and Queens Museum Cultural Food Pantry (A weekly free food distribution in collaboration with a local organization La Jornada since 2020)
Queens Teens Institute For Art & Social Justice (A youth program that aims to nurture thoughtful, independent young artists and the next generation of leaders in arts and social change)
Archives & Collection (over 10,000 items from the two iconic New York World’s Fairs of 1939/40 and 1964/65 as well as culturally diverse body of artworks dating post-war to the present)
Children’s Museum (QM is developing a multilingual intergenerational family learning center rooted in art and culture – which will be a physical space within the Museum as part of the current capital project – slated to open in 2024/5. The Children’s Museum will center children and families of all kinds)
