UNPACK STUDIO is an independent platform for artistic collaboration based in Toronto, Canada. It is aimed at coordinating and curating contemporary art projects. Our mandate is to provide a context for aesthetic research developed in the cultural, linguistic and political articulations of knowledge, particularly reflecting on the understandings of migration, race, gender and power. We are interested in investigations aimed at exploring the conceptual intersections and points of rupture of these definitions.
Sally Centigrade Artist Residency (United States)
Sally Centigrade’s visiting artist residency aims to bring new artists to Denver allowing them to create work in the unique Colorado setting, and fully immerse into the Denver art scene. The experience will be full circle, including creating a new body of work, being taught how to write a press release, promote the show through local and global media and run the actual opening reception. The aim is to give the artist a robust experience of the entire art creating and exhibiting process, and potentially have a high profile show.
Open to visual artists/musicians/writers. The studio will be located in the Inagh Valley Trust innovation centre in Connemara. The Trust was established in 2008 with a mission to “enhance society through enterprise, research and creative thinking.” The goal of the Trust is to ‘identify societal issues where the energy of enterprise and insights of research have positive lasting impacts..’
