Tamarind Institute | 2019 Call for Artist Proposals

Collaborations with Tamarind Student Printers

Deadline: October 15, 2018

Tamarind Institute invites applications from artists working in all media to propose a project with its skilled student printers. During the spring semester, four artists will be selected to participate in two-week residencies in the workshop, each working with a team of two student printers under the close supervision of a Tamarind Master Printer. The invited artists will explore the lithographic medium and collaborative printmaking, with daily proofing and consultation with a team of printers. Each artist is invited to make two editions using standard lithographic drawing materials and processes.

At the completion of the two-week residency the artist will sign off on a trial proof, and the printing of the edition will take place after the artist leaves. The editions will be completed by the end of May 2019, at which time the artist will receive all of the prints and proofs for signing. With the exception of one record impression for the Tamarind archive and one printer’s proof retained by the printer, all of the prints will be the property of the artist. Editions will be packed by Tamarind and shipped at the artist’s expense (utilizing the University FedEx rate).

No previous experience in printmaking necessary. We welcome proposals from artists in all media.
