Turner Prize lifts age limit: "Now is the right moment to make this change" - a-n The Artists Information Company. Tate, the organiser of the Turner Prize, has announced that it will be lifting the under-50 age limit for the 2017 prize shortlist.
Artists of any age will now be eligible for the prize from this year onwards. The age limit was introduced in 1991 – the year the prize was won by Anish Kapoor – in order to ensure that the prize reflected contemporary developments in art rather than it being a lifetime achievement award. However, there have been increasing calls for the age limit to be abolished. Tate Britain director Alex Farquharson, chair of this year’s jury, said of the move: “We have always kept these terms under review and we feel that now is the right moment to make this change.

Paint with the polar bears: Norwegian government launches art foundation and residency on Svalbard. In the Arctic ocean, halfway between Norway and the North Pole, lies an archipelago of four islands called Svalbard, which is home to more polar bears than people.
The remote glacial landscape might seem like an unlikely place to grow a contemporary art scene, but on 12 June the Norwegian ministry of culture announced it is launching an art foundation and artist residency in the capital of Longyearbyen, the world’s northernmost town, where the sun never sets during summer. There are plans to invite between three and five artists from Norway and abroad to take part every year, as well as foster exchanges with international institutions. The residencies are intended to be “experimental”, says Katya García-Antón, the director of the Office of Contemporary Art Norway (OCA), one of the partner organisations of the project. “Artists won’t be expected to turn up, make a work and leave. There’s a strong wish that things become more rooted,” she says.
Plaidoyer pour l’art. Je n’aime pas écrire.
Les paroles s’envolent, les écrits restent. À chacun son métier. Je suis un homme de réflexion qui a d’abord besoin de faire, de construire, de bouger. Je suis ce qu’on appelle généralement un homme d’action, un homme d’affaires. L’injustice, par ailleurs, m’est intolérable, de même que tout ce qui cache la vérité. Je fréquente assidûment depuis 40 ans le milieu de la musique et celui des arts visuels, qui me passionnent et m’inspirent particulièrement, et cela, quotidiennement.

Printing matter is a two-week thematic residency with an intensive program for 8-10 artists, focusing on printmaking and artist book making.
The Thematic Residency aims to create a platform for exchange, discussion, and collaboration amongst fellow artists from various disciplines, who share a professional interest in the topic, both on a practical and a conceptual level, and who wish to deepen their knowledge and expertise. The program is developed and guided by the Danish artist and graphic designer Åse Eg Jørgensen. The program includes group workshops, independent research and practice and an informal final presentation in Skaftfell’s project space. Working facilities and printmaking equipment will be made available through a collaboration with the Technical Museum of East Iceland in Seyðisfjörður.
A summary of selected texts will act as a foundation for discussions on the above listed topics. Application process Please submit your application via the online application form. Call for Applications – Skaftfell – myndlistarmiðstöð Austurlands. The residency program at Skaftfell Center for Visual Art aims to create and nurture an environment for inspiration, focus, and experiment; to encourage artists to experience life and work in a unique micro community where creativity is applied to the everyday; to foster a sense of community between artists and the public in the rural setting of East Iceland; and to provide conditions that stimulate the dialogue between art and life.
The program is best suited for visual artists, but artists with interdisciplinary practices are also welcome to apply. The Skaftfell residencies are self-directed and can be used for research and/or for production of work. Artists-in-residence have the opportunity to propose an exhibition in Skaftfell’s project space, and they are welcome to participate in the Skaftfell educational program, including artist talks, open studios, workshops for the local community and for primary school children.

A Guide to 20 Top Artist Residencies and Retreats Across the United States. The path to a successful art career can be a twisting one, but one commonly traveled route is the artist residency.
There are hundreds of residencies out there, ranging from highly prestigious programs that are invitation-only — like those of Artpace, the Walker Art Center, or UCLA’s Hammer Museum, all of which mainly invite established artists to create fully funded projects — to more open, or even experimental, retreats. Not all residencies are created equal, and while some may help you get a leg up in the art world, you may still have to pay for the opportunity. Programs can be grouped several ways: Some are fully funded without fees; some are partially funded with fees; some offer stipends/awards; still others are project/work based. There is even a thriving "alternative" category (check out Part 2 of this series where we’ll look at some of the funkier options out there).
