The self-structured residency lasts from 1, 2, or 3 months and includes a bedroom and adjoining studio for a contemporary visual artist to come to Los Angeles, make new work, network with other artists, spaces, galleries, curators, and others and explore Los Angeles. The residency fees will range from $1,200 to $1,350 US per month, for 2014 depending on which slot is applied for or available. All residency fees will be set at $1400 US per month beginning 2015. The increase is due mainly to a upcoming rental increase on the property upon lease renewal, as well as yearly cost-of-living increases and renovations.
Eastside International does not currently offer any kind of financial aid or stipends to residents. All funding is the responsibility of the applicants. We can, on request, provide documentation to applicants or funders in regards to an applicant's acceptance to the AIR program.
Eastside International's regular exhibition program will begin in mid-September 2014; however, during the initial residency period, the space will be hosting various pop-up events and more in its main gallery area, as we continue to transition the space. Also, there may be various renovations, remodeling, and improvements to the entire facility during and leading up to this period.
A community of artists live and work in Eastside's facility, and the space has been in continual artist-run operation for over a decade. The AIR accommodations are for working artists; the facility is operated out of a converted industrial space on the grounds of the Brewery Art Colony. The AIR program at Eastside is artist-run, semi-communal, co-ed, and cooperatively operated with common areas, kitchen, WC and other facilities shared by the 3 resident artists, live-in co-director, the other co-directors, and studios renters at the building. The full time resident artists, including the directors, all financially contribute to the costs of running Eastside Art and all work is entirely volunteer based. The costs for the AIR are kept as low as possible and help cover all the maintenance, overhead, and exhibition programming, and are shared by the artist-directors and studio rentals. Eastside hopes to provide an artists-run space for the making of art and participating in the Los Angeles contemporary art community and is not recommended for artists expecting luxury accommodations, preferential treatment, or a vacation resort experience.
Please email a single PDF that includes statement of purpose, full CV/resume, images of previous work, and artist statement. Any press materials, two letters of reference and some proof of funding in regards to residency fees is highly recommended for full consideration. Please send all materials as email attachments to director Jason Ramos at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application responses are usually within 2 weeks. Many applications are recieved; not all applicants are accepted. Acceptance as an AIR is detirmined by the artist-directors of Eastside International. Deadline is ongoing for open slots in the schedule. Longer residencies (3 months) are given preference to shorter stays.
Pets, live music, or use of overly-hazardous materials cannot be permitted. A deposit in the amount of one month's fee will be required to secure the residency once accepted, to be refunded up to 30 days after the end of the residency, if all residency terms and conditions have been met.

Commissioning of the three major artworks for EAFS 2015 (anticipated value £10,000 – £15,000 per commission) Deadline: 19 September, 2014 Application fee: none
The EAFS team is beginning the process of developing work for the 2015 festival. To do this we want to work collaboratively with creative people and communities of interest. EAFS 2015 will connect South West Scotland to national and international locations therefore we are particularly seeking proposals that involve some form of journey to the festival.
The Commissioned Artworks
The commissioned artworks might comprise a journey, an event, an installation, an art happening. They might involve structure, visual art, design, architecture, sound or performance or a combination of these disciplines. We are interested in work that involves making across different disciplines and technologies and ideas of sharing and potentially leaving something behind. The artwork should culminate in Dumfries and Galloway as part of EAFS 2015 (28 – 30 August).
Inventiveness, foolishness and generosity as a way of understanding the world Food, clothes, shelter and environmental sustainability Hospitality, hosting and community Journeys, migrations, secular pilgrimage and transformation
Environmental Art Festival Scotland
EAFS will develop, create and support experiences that allow direct engagement with place and land through the arts. EAFS will encourage future thinking and practical action about new ways of living.
ABOUT Art Festival Scotland (EAFS) is a biennial arts festival in Dumfries and Galloway, South West Scotland. The inaugural EAFS happened in late summer 2013 and was produced by three leading arts organisations working in partnership: Wide Open, Spring Fling and The Stove Network. Key to the success of EAFS is collaborative and cross-disciplinary working. The EAFS team in 2013 worked with local, national and international artists, designers, producers and local communities to commission, curate, fund, co-fund and produce over 30 installations, exhibitions, talks, workshops around the themes of land, environment, and sustainability. EAFS has grown out of a long-term ambition for Dumfries & Galloway to become the international home for environmental art building on the pedigree and projects and artists connected to the region such as Andy Goldsworthy’s Striding Arches, Charles Jenck’s Garden of Cosmic Speculation and Dalziel and Scullion’s Rosnes Bench. EAFS 2015 will happen in a location (TBC) in Dumfries and Galloway over 28, 29, 30 August.

Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD) Deadline: September 14, 2014 Decision: end of September Application fee: none
Fieldwork: Marfa is the joint project of two leading European art academies, Les Beaux-Arts de Nantes and HEAD – Genève (Geneva University of Art and Design). This international researcher-in-residence program is dedicated to the practice of art in public space, critical approaches to landscape and borders and artistic projects based on field investigation methods.
Located in Marfa, Texas, USA, this unique platform is intended for emerging artists, curators and researchers whose projects require immersion into the specific environment of Marfa and Texas territory, and encourages the development of experimental research methods, diverse modes of inquiries and fieldwork practices.
The program comes with a research grant of 2,000 USD, enabling the applicants to stay in Marfa for a two-month residency period and to unfold their research with the support of a series of professional partners and educational structures. The Fieldwork: Marfa research program is based on the idea that the residents develop their own research projects in relation to academic programs and curriculum of the two art schools involved.
The two European schools have chosen to build this program in Marfa because its location and context offer a very wide range of research opportunities. The program relies on a collaborative network of like-minded international art schools and universities, research structures, art institutions and cultural events (The Contemporary Austin; Marfa Book Company; Albuquerque UNM Art & Ecology department; The School of Art at the University of Houston; Center for Land Use Interpretation, Los Angeles; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Le Grand Café, Saint Nazaire, and more).
Residents are selected on the basis of a research project in direct relationship with the context, through all its material, historical, epistemological as well as political dimensions.
The application must be submitted in English. A driving license is strongly recommended. Among the six chosen candidates, two are alumni of HEAD-Genève and/or Les beaux-arts de Nantes.

Out from Live Architectures: a new series of Net-AR artworks created on Google Earth, 2014. Live Architectures is a series of digital and interactive artworks created over time in a wide-range production developed to reshape the indoor and the outdoor architecture and environmental places as well as the ‘digital environment’, transforming it into something alive and vibrant. This series of site-specific artworks is created and usable exclusively on Google Earth. Through the augmented reality technology, the artwork aims to create an extemporary-temporary virtual land-art, constructing a sort of "mise en abyme" or “droste effect”, in which an element shifts the other in depth, merging the Google earth environment with the augmented area in order to create a new space.
“Augmented forces on Google Earth” invites the viewer to use the Augmented Reality on the Google Earth browser underwater due to some mysterious quadratic endogenous forces paradoxically/ironically working inversely off the coast of the Ostia Sea. Inspired by the Gino De Dominicis act/attempt of 1969, to form squares instead of circles in the water, an augmented’ real-time land-art condition appears to the spectators’ eyes watching a submerged Google Earth.
“Augmented sky-trip on Google Earth - The strawberry ice storm” thanks to the Augmented Reality, involves the viewer to take a crazy trip into a storm of iced/acid strawberry over the Google Earth fly simulator. During the storm/trip, bizarrely, only one strawberry glitching landed successful on the ramp n. 13 of the Buenos Aires Airport on Google Earth.
TRANSFER is pleased to present the USA debut of 'Ways of Something'
Screening + Discussion ::: SATURDAY September 6 ::: from 7 -10PM
"Ways of Something”, is a contemporary remake of John Berger’s BBC documentary, “Ways of Seeing” (1972). Commissioned by The One Minutes, at the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam and compiled by Lorna Mills, the project consists of one-minute videos by fifty eight web-based artists who commonly work with 3D rendering, gifs, film remix, webcam performances, and websites to describe the cacophonous conditions of artmaking after the internet.
The screening at TRANSFER Gallery is based on the first two episodes of a four-part series of thirty-minute films created by art theorist John Berger and produced by Mike Dibb. In the original episode one, voice-of-God narration over iconic European paintings offer a careful dissection of traditional “fine art” media and the way society has come to understand them as art. The second episode is a contentious and sometimes maddening look at the female nude in the western tradition.
The combined work is, in effect, art about art about television about the internet.
Featuring formal, figural and kitsch practices to videomaking, “Ways of Something” is constituted by aesthetically diverse interpretations of Berger’s ideas on looking at art after the introduction of digital media and the internet. Ultimately, it turns the highbrow nature of the original documentary film into a exuberant and disjointed series on how artists understand art today.
Debut Screening + Discussion Saturday, September 6th 7PM – Reception 8PM – Screening Begins 9PM – Discussion led by TRANSFER artist Lorna Mills, Julia van Mourik of The One Minutes at Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam, and Paddy Johnson of ArtFCity

“Prove it to me”, curated by Natasha Marie Llorens, is a group show featuring the work of Shane Aslan Selzer, Stephanie Diamond, Dillon de Give, Mark Menjivar, Maria D. Rapicavoli, Julia Sherman, and Mary Walling Blackburn.
Arguably the only thing that holds social practice art together as a genre is the fact that it takes place between people. It is an art-form that entails giving over meaning to subjects – to bodies, even – in all their impossible contradictions. While such projects are, as a result, incredibly complex matrices of intention and accident, they are often presented in exhibitions with still images that seem to claim: “Here is what happened. Here is a picture of the relation that is the artwork. Here is the proof that the we related to one another.”
“Prove it to me” presents the work of seven artists, loosely defined as making social practice artwork, who refuse an objective understanding of photography. Instead, they create projects that thicken the relationship between an image and the event it stands in for.
For more information about projects, curatorial essay and audio guide download, please visit the project website: www.proveittome.net

The Juried Annual presents a survey of Bay Area art at the creative edge. All submissions are reviewed online using a ‘blind’ jury system.
Cesar Garcia (Founding Director and Chief Curator, The Mistake Room, Los Angeles) and Naima J. Keith (Assistant Curator, The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York) invite artists to consider the following prompt when submitting for The Annual:
"The page that was blank to begin with is now crossed from top to bottom with tiny black characters--letters, words, commas, exclamation marks--and it's because of them the page is said to be legible. But a kind of uneasiness, a feeling close to nausea, an irresolution that stays my hand--these make me wonder: do these black marks add up to reality? The white of the paper is an artifice that's replaced the translucency of parchment and the ochre surface of clay tablets; but the ochre and the translucency and the whiteness may possess more reality than the signs that mar them." - Jean Genet, Prisoner of Love
Eligibility: Participation is open to artists who reside/work within the eleven counties Greater Bay Area, defined as the counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Benito, San Francisco, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma.

Move It is an excerpt from an ongoing investigation into getting the crowd pumped up and moving.
Lorna Mills, Jump Rope, 2011, GIF
Lorna Mills channels and trolls the internet through her assemblage GIFs. Searching the far reaching corners of the world wide web, Mills pulls out the most peculiar, inane, and baffling imagery and then recontextualizes it into her own carefully crafted compositions.
Claudia Bitran, The Zone: Action, 2013, 3:17 min
The Zone is a series of three trailers for movies that do not exist: a Korean horror film, a Latino action film, and a French drama film. In the Latino action trailer, I perform as Macarena de las Heras, a strong and determined woman who has to go through different adventures in order to enter “The Zone.” She rides motorcycles, fights gangsters, tries to get information from the gatas, and shoots guns while running through the desert and making out with hot guys.
Gaby Cepeda and Adriana Minoliti, Conspirativas (series), 2013, GIF
These collaborative images capture an intersection between the artists’ loving interrogations of celebrity culture (Cepeda) and pornography (Minoliti). The result is an image that tackles female sexuality in its vicissitudes.

Eva Papamargariti, RandomAccessData, 2014, 4:50 min.
RandomAccessData is a parallel visual and verbal narration between references; it is a stream of information that creates a tag cloud based on random thoughts about post- internet art, radical utopian groups of the ’60s, today’s virtual field, the definitive role of searching and tagging inside the cyberspace, terms like distribution and reproduction of image, constant data flow, internet immersion, real ID vs cyber ID and the notion of auto generated content.
Dafna Ganani, I Dream of I Dream of Jennie, 2013, 3:42 min.
I Dream of I Dream of Jennie is a mediated performance by the artist Dafna Ganani. It references the 70′s American TV series I Dream of Jeannie and uses glitched images of copyrights licenses, biopunked Barbara Eden in her Jeannie costume, dolphins, BIOS homepage to propose a cybernetics fantasy: beings with both organic and cybernetic parts.

Geraldine Juárez, Love Not Money, 2009, 1:06 min
In 2009, months after the stock market meltdown, i created a personal stock market to track my assets: desires, work, routines, expectations and emotions – and how the way i valued them felt closer to death, money or love.
The video is the output of four weeks of emotional capitalism, where my assets were collected in a notebook and mapped and visualized originally in Processing.
Claire Evans, Digital Decay: Meditation/Disintegration, 2011, 1:50 min
Meditation/Disintegration is an animation of individual video frames saved in incrementally lower file formats hundreds and hundreds of times. Where is the line at which compression ceases to preserve information entirely? The digital image washes away on the tide of its own preservation. The beach ball is the third eye.

Morehshin Allahyari, The Romantic Self-Exiles I, 2012, 5:06 min.
To build a land; an imaginary home. To push the limits of real and unreal, memory and imagination, locality and universality. To put together my most vivid memories on flat planes or 3D cubes. Inside and outside the empty rooms, rooms without bodies, rooms left behind. A reflection and presentation of emotional attachments. Collective and personal.
Jennie Cole, a device of a special type, 2012, 3:32 min.
a device of special type investigates encounters with text in electronic media, in response to Donna Haraway’s assertion that writing is ‘pre-eminently the technology of cyborgs’. Exploring ideas of transhumanist possibility alongside the manipulations of identity suggested by the internet’s corporate ‘like’, the language in this video is at once page-based, screen-based, illuminated and infiltrated by symbols and logos.

Tessa Siddle, Hexenhaus, 2010, 2:47 min.
Hexenhaus is a video fragment from a series of work about domestic ritual and relations between humans, houseplants, and animals. Following the collapse of a relationship a failed banishing ritual is performed with my pet houseplants/familiars. An attempt to convert loneliness into solitude results in only more loneliness.

Zatonyl’s 3D rendered video juxtaposes glittery, soft colors with hard lines forming an imaginative factoy-like space that produces unknown, but assuredly delightful things.
Jennifer Chan, Boyfriend 男友 [Nanyou], 2014, 6:27 min.
BOYFRIEND combines YouTube-captured webcam videos with images of dominant East Asian masculinity. Headlined by a Mandarin cover of Justin Bieber’s pop hit Boyfriend, K-pop stars, J-pop stars, Taiwanese diaspora, and Canto-pop icons, are recut against confessional Asian American “dudes” to deliberate the superficial aspects of performing the archetypal romantic straight male partner in Asian culture.

Sabrina Ratté, The Land Behind, 2013, 4:56 min.
Traveling on an undefined territory where the illusion of a continuous tracking shot emphasizes an unreachable destination. Through the syncopated editing and multiple transitions, images of the area themselves become traveling entities, creating confusion on the level of the depicted space as much as with the level of its temporality.

MEMORIAL Artworks by Estelle Levy & Fernand Barbot Music by Elodie Lauten Saturday, September 6th - Sunday, September 28th, 2014 Opening Reception: Saturday, September 6th, 4-6pm Curated by Yuko Nii In the Main Gallery
The WAH Center is pleased to present "Memorial" honoring our beloved artists - Estelle Levy, Fernand Barbot, and Elodie Lauten - who have passed away recently. During the fine arts show, the music of Elodie Lauten will be heard. Also featuring works by friends of Estelle Levy including: Linda Butti; Helen Henry; Kenol Lamour; Gabe Turow; and Barbara Schiller.
Though Estelle Levy and Fernand Barbot were from totally different cultural backgrounds - Estelle was a female American ceramic artist while Fernand was a male painter born in France - they both shared similarities in age and the late start of their art careers. Whereas Estelle referred to herself as a “self-employed artist,” and Fernand called himself a “self-taught artist,” both found unique visual languages to express their inner vision in both 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works. With strong personalities and distinctive characters, hard-working and strong-willed natures, Estelle and Fernand were both kind and sincere, full of wit and wisdom, which they shared with other artists and fellow citizens.
A French-American “avant-garde” composer, Elodie Lauten’s fresh and innovative musical language is a unique combination of Western and Asian music. She introduced us to a new universal musical language. Elodie performed at the WAH Center several times in the past. With each performance she demonstrated new sounds and tones that provoked all five senses - her music resonates in our minds and hearts, and will stay with us for a long time.
All three of our dear friends made our lives more interesting, colorful, and meaningful. Their presence will be missed, but their art lives on.
In the Small Gallery: Gerald Barbot – Small Sculpture/Assemblage
Gerard Barbot: Son of Fernand Barbot, Gerard Barbot was born in Paris, and when he was 5 years old, his parents emigrated to the USA. He now lives in Brooklyn, NY. His childhood was filled with the spirit of adventure and the need to satisfy a curious mind and that led him to the wonder of books, travel and art. His creative activity at a young age was to make collage in order to document and express experiences so that he could visualize his thoughts, aesthetics, emotions, influences and ideas. While working in the building trade industry, he was fascinated by the mesmerizing pyrotechnics of welding, and he was inspired to use a melange of materials and assorted means of construction to create found object sculpture known as assemblage. Gerard has participated in many exhibitions around the world, and his artwork is in private collections. He continues to challenge himself by collaborating with other artists and working in different mediums. He repurposes, recycles and transforms abandoned artifacts and discarded detritus. He invites the viewers to see ordinary objects in unexpected ways.
"This 'Memorial' show will fulfill the WAH Center's "Bridge Concept" mission by bridging man and woman, young and old, 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional works, American and French artists, and fine art with performing art."
