Corban Estate Arts Centre Summer 2020 - Tui Residency
The Corban Estate Arts Centre (CEAC) is located in Henderson, Waitakere City, a heritage site once home to the Corban Winery Estate. The Arts Centre provides a unique combination of facilities - historic winery buildings for exhibition and event hire, art galleries that feature a number of critical exhibitions, a café of fresh foods, a gallery shop of artist made gifts, and artist’s studios. We offer a wide range of Arts and Cultural Events, and Education Programmes including creative classes for Adults and Children and a Schools Education Programme. There are approximately 20 artists working on site including painters, sculptors, and ceramic artists.
Our public gallery presents a high quality and engaging exhibition line-up, profiling artists that are both internationally and locally recognised. CEAC exhibitions showcase a wide range of visual art mediums that respond to contemporary, historical and multi-cultural themes, which represent a diverse range of artistic perspectives. Operating on a 12 month system, the exhibition calendar is also supported by a thorough range of free public programmes which include artist’s talks, exhibition tours and art workshops for families.
Our residency programme has been created to offer local artists the opportunity to develop and work on their professional art practices, whilst providing a platform for them to experiment. With particular focus on adding to a local arts voice, we especially want to encourage engagement with the vast outdoor locations within our site, combining local art with its own heritage landscape.
Description of Residency
Our residency offers ample TIME and SPACE to creative individuals who are interested in exploring their ceramic art practice within the landscape of the Corban Estate Arts Centre. This residency enables the creation and production of new work with open access to our onsite kiln (measurement). Due to the size restriction of the kiln, the residency would suit an artist working with smaller scale objects or a ceramic jeweller.
The following will be made available to you, should your proposal be accepted:
- Artists are offered a studio space with 24 hour access
- Large outdoor areas to explore on the estate
- Open access to our kiln
- An opportunity to hold a pop up exhibition in one of our alternative exhibition spaces
- Work amongst our community of 24 onsite artists
Who should apply?
Our summer residency round will commence from January 6 – February 2, 2020
This month long residency is ideal for an artist or artists who have an existing project or developing idea but want to push their own personal boundaries. Due to facilities on offer during the residency, an interest in ceramics, kiln-firing and exploring the Waitakere heritage space, is advantageous. However, artists with experimental proposals, with any making background, are strongly encouraged to apply.
*There is no required outcome for this residency; this opportunity is to help artists develop their practice.
