The City of Alexandria is seeking individual artists or artist groups/organizations for up to two residencies to develop and perform new, site-specific work in response to the new temporary public artwork Groundswell, by commissioned artist Mark Reigelman, installed at Waterfront Park in historic Old Town Alexandria. The stipend for each residency will range from $6,000 up to $16,000, and applications from artists of all mediums will be considered.
The selected artists or artist groups/organizations will create new site-specific work beginning with a period of site research and exploration, followed by proposing a direction for the work, developing and rehearsing the performance, and culminating in presenting the work for a duration of time agreed upon with the selected artist(s) and the Office of the Arts. The selected artist(s) or artist group(s)/organization(s) should be able to adapt their concept and work to meet public health guidelines as they evolve due to the pandemic.
