SOMA Summer provides a compelling platform for artists, curators, writers, and creative professionals to critically analyze their work and develop new ideas in the context of Mexico City. SOMA Summer is organized around a conceptual framework that changes yearly. The program stresses the importance of research, discussion, and critique.

 

Participants engage in:

-               Seminars, workshops, and lectures

-               Mentorships and individual critiques

-               Visits to museums, art openings, artists’ studios, and the most relevant cultural sites of Mexico City

-               The production of self-organized publication

 

 

From July 1st to August 23th, 2019, activities at SOMA Summer will center on the term scaffolding in order to study visible and invisible supporting structures (such as language and form), and as a means to better understand the role of power, hierarchy, and surface in artistic practice. The transformative possibilities implicit in the use of scaffolding (in construction, for instance) will lead participants to consider notions of decay, conservation, and gentrification.

 

Application  

The registration deadline is February 3th, 2019

Acceptance will be announced during March 2019

SOMA encourages applications from artists, curators, art historians, designers, architects, and creative      professionals

Applications should include résumé, artist’s statement, letter of interest, portfolio, and contact information for three references

Applications need to be submitted through https://soma.slideroom.com/#/Login

 

Due to the breadth of the program’s content, applicants who are primarily looking for a studio-based residency might wish to reconsider applying.
