Joseph Labate & Laura LaFave / 2022 Artist-in-Residence
Tusen Takk Foundation 2025 Visual Artist Residency
Deadline January 7, 2024
Tusen Takk Foundation
Leland, MI, USA

Please note that the call for Tusen Takk’s 2025 residencies is only open to mid-career and established visual artists working in photography, printmaking, book arts, painting, works on paper, sculpture/installation, and fiber arts. For the 2025 season, we are not accepting applications from artists working primarily in music composition, creative writing, movement, dance, performance, academic research, journalism/critique, or film editing/production.

During open call periods, Tusen Takk welcomes applications from artists who have/are:

– The ability to produce a consistent body of high-quality work
– A dedication to their artistic practice with a desire to spend at least 30 hours a week in the studio
– Self-motivated and able to work alone – unless the residency is to be a collaboration between two people, the vast majority of the time the resident will be living and working in relative solitude
– A willingness to engage with audiences
– An openness to sharing thoughts on their work, their practice, and their processes through Tusen Takk’s online and printed publications
– Comfortable communicating with Tusen Takk’s English-speaking staff and audiences
– 21 or older
– US citizenship or the ability to obtain a US visa (if needed). Most international artists can come on a visitor visa, but certain countries do not participate in the visa waiver program. Since delays can occur, international applicants should be sure to check the visa appointment wait times. Upon offer of a residency, the Tusen Takk Foundation is able to provide letter(s) of invitation.
– Alumni of the program are welcome to reapply 5 years after their last residency

Finalists will be contacted for a virtual interview by April 2024 and all applicants will receive a final decision by June 2024.

  • Grey Crawford. Chroma, 1978–85, Vol 1
    Publication
    Beam Editions
    International

    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)

  • Mikiko Hara: Small Myths
    Publication
    Chose Commune
    International

    Mikiko Hara has her own way of secretly capturing the strangers who cross her path: a young man on the train, a couple holding hands, a little girl playing in a park… Sometimes their eyes meet briefly as she presses the shutter, but Mikiko Hara does not exchange with her subjects. Yet, these portraits reveal something infinitely personal, as if the photographer and her subjects were bound by an invisible pact (more…)

  • Paolo Novelli. The Day After Night
    Jun 14 – Jul 21, 2024
    Camera
    Turin, Italy

    Paolo Novelli‘s (Brescia, 1976) exhibition entitled Il giorno dopo la notte (“The Day After Night”) brings together in the same space two cycles of his work made between 2011 and 2018, which are central to the evolution of his language. Both are made in analog in strict black and white, with the printing process being of paramount importance. The only subjects of the two series are windows covered by closed or bricked-up shutters on the facades of buildings without particularly attractive architectural features. (more…)

  • Atiéna R. Kilfa: Special Effect
    May 4 – Sep 8, 2024
    Den Frie
    Copenhagen, Denmark

    With Special Effect, Atiéna R. Kilfa presents a new body of works consisting of a short film and two large scale pencil drawings. In continuation of Kilfa’s investigation and restructuring of cinematic archetypes, Special Effect homes in on the nondescript figure of a man sitting at a desk. Shot in black and white, the film eerily evokes a timelessness of the figure by bringing it in resonance with pictorial genres reminiscent of various eras from German Expressionist cinema to the golden age of Hollywood film noir, fast forward to its 4K quality of today.

  • Miles Aldridge
    Photographer
    Featured Profile

    Miles Aldridge’s hyperreal women have long been a focal point of his instantly recognizable color-blown images. With a bulging portfolio of more than two decades’ work, he has shot everyone from models of the moment Siri Tollerød and Cara Delevingne, to supermodel iconoclasts, such as ex-wife Kristen McMenamy.
