CALL FOR ARTIST PROPOSALS: Collaborations with Tamarind Student Printers

Tamarind Institute invites applications for artist collaborations with its skilled student printers. Three guest artists will be selected to participate in two-week residencies in the Albuquerque workshop, each working with a team of student printers under the close supervision of a Tamarind Master Printer. Participating artists will create two editions as outlined below, with the collaborating printers providing guidance on the materials and all technical aspects of the printing process. No previous experience in printmaking is necessary. We welcome proposals from artists in all media.

At the completion of the two-week residency the artist will sign off on trial proofs, and the printing of the two editions will take place after the artist leaves. The editions will be completed by the end of the summer 2023, 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.

The workshop fee is a flat $2000, which includes the following:
Two editions, each in an edition of 10-15 prints
Each edition includes one artist proof, one printer’s proof, and one record impression for the Tamarind archive.
30 x 22 inch maximum paper size from available paper stock
5 press runs maximum
5 trial proofs maximum

Please submit a resume and a letter outlining your previous experience and interest in collaborative printmaking. Include a one-page proposal outlining what kind of project you would like to explore at Tamarind, and how collaborating with a team of printers would allow you to expand your practice. Include up to 10 digital images of recent work.

No previous experience in printmaking necessary. We welcome proposals from artists in all media.
Three residencies are available between January and March 2023.
