The ImageText 2015 Workshop

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.

The symposium will be held July 6 - 8, 2015 on the Ithaca College campus, in Ithaca, NY.

Across three days of experimentation, adventure and creative exchange, the group will develop material for an original art book publication to initiate an independent press associated with Ithaca College.

All Workshop participants – Junior and Senior – 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.  Senior Fellow announcement and the call for Junior Fellowship applications will be available in January 2015.

Junior fellows will be selected by the program directors and senior fellows, through an international call for entries. Selected fellows will attend the three day event free of charge, with lodging and meals provided by Ithaca College.

Fellows may be photographers, writers, or artists working in both disciplines. Early career artists as well as advanced students are eligible to apply.

The application deadline is April 1, 2015.
