“To be sovereign is to not be subject to another’s authority, another’s desires, or another’s gaze but rather to be the author of one’s own history.” – Simone Leigh

“Liberty without responsibility is not real liberty.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Sovereignty, the theme for the 2024 SFAI International Thematic Residency, calls for an artistic and creative engagement at the multiple intersections of sovereignty as it pertains to the individual, jurisdictions, systems, and society as a whole.

SFAI supports the expression of differing perspectives regarding the role of the artist, creative practitioner, and culture bearer in shaping and being shaped by social and political conditions. As the US Supreme Court and other international political bodies in the world debate, restrict, and claim autonomy over the body, community, and the ability to self-govern, we seek proposals that articulate a response as a creative call to action and challenge imperial and colonial concepts of sovereignty that have laid claim to land and personhood.

All fees are waived for the 2024 International Thematic Residency program.

Bandelier National Monument--Artist-in-Residence program

The Artist-in-Residence program at Bandelier National Monument offers professional writers, composers and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline in the park’s inspiring and stimulating environment. Artists are selected by a jury of professionals from diverse artistic disciplines based solely on the quality of that year’s applicants’ presentations from all disciplines. However, in any given year, the park may choose to stipulate (or limit) the disciplines from which it accepts applications, based on compatibility with current programming objectives and needs. 
Selected artists stay in an historic, Pueblo-style furnished residential facility for four weeks during the period from September 1 through mid-December 2022. No application fee is required and no stipend is provided.   March Deadline

Artist Participation

The City of Santa Fe Arts Commission, in a concerted effort to expand services to the local arts community, welcomes artists and artisans of all media to participate in the exhibits and programming of the Community Gallery. The Community Gallery features themed exhibitions that run for two to three month intervals and display the full breadth and depth of the art produced by local artists and artisans in Santa Fe and New Mexico. Themed exhibitions ensure that both contemporary and traditional work in all media are shown, creating more varied, interesting and vital exhibits. In order for an artist to be considered for participation in exhibitions, the Gallery must have a portfolio of that artist’s work in the artist archive.
