The Image Text Ithaca 2015
Workshop & Symposium

The Workshop
July 5-8, 2015, in Ithaca, NY

This workshop will bring together 13 fellows: Six nationally and internationally recognized practitioners – artists, writers, publishers, editors – and seven early career artists, for a collaboration at the intersection of photography and writing in contemporary art and publishing.

All workshop participants will be asked to arrive with material that they are interested in working with in this setting.  This may range from a current project-in-progress to found material or unfinished fragments of older work.  On the first day, each participant will give a short presentation of their material as a means to introduce the group to their practice, ideas and interests.  Over the following days, working individually, in small groups, and as a decision-making collective, we will arrive at a description of and publication plan for a new book to be released by the ITI Press at Ithaca College. Following the collaborative workshops, all fellows will stay in Ithaca to participate in the symposium described below.

Junior fellows will be selected by the program directors and senior fellows, through an international call for entries. Six nights lodging (July 5-10) and all workshop meals will be included for a $750 hospitality fee. Accepted applications are eligible for full or partial fellowships to offset these costs. Fellows may be photographers, writers, or artists working in both disciplines. Early career artists as well as advanced students are eligible to apply. The extended application deadline is March 1, 2015.
