Adam Chodzko: Something in the Water. A Search for the Turn of the Backwash
Program dates: November 14 – December 9, 2011
Application deadline: July 15, 2011
It’s a collaboration. Each participant contributing equally. Field trips, hikes, meetings with “real” people, collaborative video projects, individual quests, a lot of “show and tell,” too much late night Googling, and lots of misunderstandings will steer us through this residency.

Trading Post with Candice Hopkins
Program dates: January 4 – February 21, 2012
Application deadline: July 25, 2011
In the spirit of trading posts, this residency will be a site for ideas to converge and to explore the potential of trade. Trading Post will not address a single theme but instead bring together a diverse group of Aboriginal and Indigenous cultural workers within a collaborative environment in order to consider the potentiality and limits of exchange. Please note: Enrolment to this program is limited to individuals of Aboriginal descent (status, non-status, Métis, or Inuit).

Ken Lum’s Master Class: Art and the effects of the Real
Program dates: January 4 – February 21, 2012
Application deadline: July 25, 2011
The most interesting contemporary art is focused on the uneasy relationship between identity and the Real, concerned centrally with the social and spatial impediments that so often divide people from one another. It is the aim of Art and the effects of the Real to investigate the deepening interest of art towards its contingencies. This is an intensive residency with a structured program schedule that includes weekly seminars, discussion groups, and film screenings.
