Alumni Opportunity with A. Zahner Company

calderkamin @ December 10, 2014
As a member of our KCAI alumni community, I just wanted to make sure you were aware of this new opportunity for alumni to submit entries for a biennial competition to have your artwork fabricated for free with the A. Zahner Company, the largest fine-art fabricator in the United States, which also happens to be located here in Kansas City.
Visit azahner.com/kcai  to apply, see fabricated works by past winners, or to cast votes for entries that have already been submitted. (As you will see from the few entries received and posted to the site, your submission would be especially welcome.)

Every other year, A. Zahner Company has continued to sponsor a competition for KCAI students to fabricate an artwork for the Biennial KCAI Auction, the proceeds of which go to future students’ scholarship funds. This year, however, the competition is being opened up to KCAI alumni as well.
The winning contestant will have his/her artwork produced by Zahner and receive an additional $1,000. Zahner donates the metal, engineering, and production of the project, and the produced work will be featured in the Live Auction portion of the 2015 KCAI Biennial Art & Design Auction held in Kansas City on June 6, 2015. All proceeds will go to the KCAI Student Scholarship Fund for future students. This competition is open to all students* and alumni** at the Kansas City Art Institute.

Cultural ReProducers: Propositions, Manifestos, and Experiments

labcake @ December 2, 2014

Cultural ReProducers: Propositions, Manifestos & Experiments is finally in print! This risographed think-tank explores the intersection of contemporary artmaking and family life through text and images from 28 international artists published by and with the collective Temporary Services in glorious duotone with a centerfoldout poster of the Cultural ReProducers manifesto. Due to the multilayered nature of the zine (44 pages in 3 colors with a centerfoldout manifesto poster) it was painstakingly collated, folded and stapled by hand and there are just 400-ish copies in existence.

Orders within the United States are just $7 US plus shipping ($8.50 postpaid). You can support the work of Cultural ReProducers by ordering your copies right here.

Thanks to Temporary Services the zine will also soon be available as a lovely e-book and archival PDFs at $2 each through their imprint Half Letter Press.
For those of you in Chicago, join us for the event Co-Occupations, a reading, curated bookshelf and zine launch co-organized with Caroline Picard for Sector 2337 on Wednesday, December 10th at 7:30pm (doors open 7pm) including a live performance by musicians/parents The Speers. The event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Division of Labor: Chicago Artist Parents, curated by Christa Donner and Thea Liberty Nichols and on view through February 14th at Columbia College’s Glass Curtain Gallery. Please join us if you can! Sector 2337 is located at 2337 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL.
