The Wassaic Project seeks artists to participate in the Haunted Mill on October 31, 2020, our annual, one-night-only Halloween event in the hamlet of Wassaic. Artists transform the floors of Maxon Mills into a PG-13 haunted house, and throughout the event we host family-friendly hayrides, games, and performances.
We accept three types of proposals for the Haunted Mill: site-specific installations in Maxon Mills, outdoor installations, and performances.
For site-specific installations in Maxon Mills and outdoor installations:
Artists will have complete creative control over their installation, as long as they keep their work PG-13. We want artists who are excited to participate and get weird, as well as artists who are self-directed and independent with their projects and vision. Wassaic Project offers housing in one of our residency houses for 1 – 4 weeks between October 2 and November 2, 2020, private studio space in Maxon Mills, additional studio space in Luther Barn, and full access to our wood shop and print shop. Artists interested in marking site-specific work for the exhibition should apply regardless of whether or not they are interested or able to be in residence in October. We will offer a modest honorarium to participating artists and artistic teams.
Please explain how the piece will look or function. If your work is time-based or or has video documentation, you may also link to media from YouTube, Vimeo and SoundCloud.
