SciArt Initiative

The Bridge: Experiments in Science & Art

The Bridge is a four-month long virtual residency program funded by SciArt that runs from September through January. Matched based on fitness from an open call application, each pair is comprised of professionals who are in the arts, the sciences, or both. Residents are required to keep a weekly blog on their activity and projects, documenting the collaborative process over time. In four months, residents accomplish as much as is natural to their synergy; some pairs end their work together at the conclusion of the residency, some pairs continue their work indefinitely. As a virtual residency program, collaborative potential is not limited by geography. Process and projects unfold physically where residents are located, and virtually online through resident's blogs. "The Bridge" is open internationally to artists, scientists, technologists, and creative professionals. Applications open every June, for their September - January residency.

Frieze Impact Prize

Frieze, Endeavor Foundation, and the Art for Justice Fund are accepting applications for the Freize Impact Prize. The purpose of the Frieze Impact Prize is to expose the inequitable aspects of the criminal justice system and challenge its racially-biased public perceptions, with special consideration given to recognizing work by justice-involved artists. The Frieze Impact Prize will award $25,000 to an artist for a work of art that can contribute to the movement to end mass incarceration. Every applicant will submit one work they would like the jury to consider, and this one work and responses submitted on this form will form the main basis of the jury’s consideration of each applicant. Applications to the Frieze Impact Prize are open to any U.S.-based visual artist who is aged 18 or older, regardless of e.g. citizenship status, felony convictions, or formal training in art.

Artadia Awards are open to all visual artists living and working throughout one of Artadia’s Award Cities. Individual artists and collaboratives working in all visual media and at any stage in their career are strongly encouraged to apply.

Then, a second panel of curators from the Award city conduct studio visits with the Finalists, gaining a broader context for the artists’ work. From the Finalist pool, two artists are selected to receive an unrestricted Artadia Award of $10,000. The Artadia Awards application process is open to all visual artists who live and work in designated partner cities and have resided in the program city for at least two years prior to the application deadline.The Awards are based on merit: defined as a rigorous engagement with a set of ideas embodied in materials, a depth of practice and a clearly articulated and developed voice.
