Shortlist for the Georgia Fee Residency Winter Term Announced

Shortlist for the Georgia Fee Artist | Writer Residency, Winter Term 2014 Announced

ArtSlant, the global contemporary arts network and magazine, has released its shortlist of applicants for the Georgia Fee Residency, Winter Term 2014. This is a two-month residency that takes place in a beautiful Hassmann-style apartment in the Montparnasse neighborhood of Paris.

The Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency was established in memory of ArtSlant's Founder who passed away December 8th, 2012. Georgia was dedicated to supporting and investing in young artists and writers, and she had a deep connection with the city of Paris. This residency, which offers artists and writers the opportunity to create work in Paris, has been created in Georgia's memory.

The goal of the Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency in Paris is to support and invest in emerging artists and writers, to provide an opportunity for them to advance their work and explore and engage with the cultural landscape of Paris, to encourage experimentation, and to increase exposure of their work to an international audience.

The Residency is open to visual artists of all mediums, art writers and critics, 24 years or older. Recent graduates are especially encouraged to apply. The selection will be made based on the merit of past work and the potential for future success, the ability to independently develop new work, and the proposed project's relevance to the city of Paris.

Recipients will be required to maintain a blog, which will be posted on ArtSlant.

So it's been almost a month since I left the Parisian summer behind and returned to London. The Georgia Fee Residency was a totally amazing experience and I'm continuing to work with the ongoing projects stemming from both the residency and my original project  


ArtSlant Staff Writer Residency Winner Announced

As part of our commitment to supporting the careers of talented, emerging arts writers, ArtSlant is pleased to announce the establishment of a new residency for ArtSlant Staff Writers. Every year one ArtSlant Writer will be chosen to take up residence in the Paris apartment for a one month period to discover the Paris art scene and work on a special project or publication.

ArtSlant announces its first Staff Writer Resident, Christina Catherine Martinez who has just arrived in Paris to complete her first artist book, tentatively titled FOR SHOW and scheduled for release in 2014. 

FOR SHOW is a slightly tongue-in-cheek artist book that will be part memoir, part theoretical text, and part how-to guide for the aspiring fashion blogger. Themes of French Impressionism, Haussmannization, the construction of the Eiffel Tower, and the mythology of Parisian Chic will be used to examine the fashion blog: a uniquely 21st century phenomenon combining social, economic, technological, and artistic practices that (mainly) young women use in concert to construct a Self, and in the process a vast interconnected system of social tribes that occlude the online / "real life" divide.

Christina Catherine Martinez is a writer and blogger based in Los Angeles. Her work seeks out hidden parallels between social and artistic practices, often using art history and fashion history as devices to talk about, and talk to, one another. She holds a BA in Comparative Literature and Art History from the University of California, Berkeley.
