I-Park is an International Artists Residency located in East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.A). We would like to spread the word that we are now accepting applications for our 2021 Site-Responsive Artist Residency and Biennale.

This three week residency will run from August 30 to September 20, 2021 and will culminate in a public opening of the Biennale on September 18, 2021. The residency will be devoted exclusively to the 6-7 artists/designers invited to create new works for the exhibition. I-Park views site-responsive art as a multi-disciplinary, multi-sensory field- at its most impactful when the installations are developed and experienced in-situ.

An artist’s stipend of $3,500 will be awarded to each invitee, along with economy travel costs. Collaborating teams are welcome to apply but the team leader is responsible for all aspects of participation, including communications and allocation of the artist’s stipend.

Artists/designers from the following creative disciplines are encouraged to apply: visual arts, music composition/sound art, language arts, architecture, new media and landscape/garden/ecological design.

For 2021, all works must include a substantial physical installation that will remain in good condition through the autumn of 2022.

Private living quarters, a meals program and limited local transportation services will be provided to participants. Workshop space and a wide selection of tools, equipment and materials are readily available.

Applications are processed online through SlideRoom. A $35 application fee is required to help defray the costs associated with the application and curatorial processes. The application deadline is January 18, 2020.

Extensive program and application details about the 2021 program are available at http://www.i-park.org/2021sracall.

Attached are examples of Site-Specific pieces that artists have created on our campus and two of our newest artist studios.
