I know I've been critical of Artpace in the past, but I want to spread the word about their upcoming deadline for their Texas Artist in Residence slots for 2011.

If you only have even a TEENSY bit of motivation or desire to have a residency, APPLY. As noted in my Artifacts column this week, past Texas Artpace residents include Chuck Ramirez, Anne Wallace, Jesse Amado, Cruz Ortiz, and Franco Mondini-Ruiz.

It's a really great residency which will afford you opprtunities to try entirely new things; witness the crazy, boundary-pushing scale of Richie Budd's outrageous Absorbing Liminal Homeostasis last fall.

Put yourself out there. Take advantage of the opportunities.

Woody Allen once said "90% of life is just showing up."

The other 10% water, I think.

At any rate, here's some info below, go to their website for more.

Texas Open Call Applications Due

Calling all Texas artists! Visit artpace to submit your Open Call application for the 2011 International Artist-in-Residence program. Every year Texas artists are invited to submit material to be considered for a place on the shortlist that will be reviewed by Artpace's guest curators. The year's three curators will examine the selected artists' materials and may also conduct studio visits. Each curator then identifies an innovative Texas artist to become an International Artist-in-Residence.
