In 2022, the Wave Farm Residency Program will thematically focus on artists working as duos. We believe something very special happens with two collaborating artists are given dedicated time, space, and resources to work together with uninterrupted focus, and Wave Farm looks forward to a dedicated season supporting this theme, especially on the heels of the isolation imposed by the pandemic. Applicants are invited to propose visual and sonic projects that fall within the Transmission Arts genre. Employing the electromagnetic spectrum, Transmission Art encompasses work in participatory live art or time-based art such as radio, video, light, installation, and performance, as well as a multiplicity of other practices and media, informed by an intentional act of transmission through space (often the airwaves). Please visit https://wavefarm.org/ta/about for more information. While in-residence, artists are also provided with hands-on opportunities to interact with, and broadcast on, Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM, a creative community radio station serving over 78,000 potential listeners in New York’s Upper Hudson Valley, and international listeners online. Women, gender non-comforming people, and people of color are encouraged to apply.
