Alisa Yang Filmmaker Showcase & Discussion

Posted on: March 5th, 2019

Sunday, March 17

5:30 – 7:00 p.m. @ At Liberty (849 NW Wall St, Bend)

Caldera + BendFilm + ScaleHouse present a showcase and discussion with Alisa Yang, interdisciplinary artist and filmmaker, in association with Bend Women’s March.

 

Alisa is a March Artist in Residence at Caldera and is researching and writing for an experimental essay film, the second piece of the Please Come Again trilogy: a series of shorts that narrates the collective and personal memory of three generations of Asian/American women. Her work explores intergenerational trauma, sexualities, and displacement of diaspora identity through Asia’s love hotels.

 

The evening of the 17th, Alisa will screen three films, including:

Sleeping with the Devil (23 mins) Based on a Skype exorcism and found footage, the filmmaker confronts her past growing up in the Evangelical prophetic and deliverance ministry.

Please Come Again (10 mins) An experimental essay film that narrates the collective and personal memory of three generations of Asian women through the rooms of Japanese love hotels.

Stop Speaking (5 mins) An existential text-to-speech crisis, a meditation on the construction of gender on technology. Composition by Andy Akiho’s “Stop Speaking” featuring live solo snare drum performed by Chelsea Tinsler.

 

Following the films, OPB’s Emily Cureton will facilitate a Q&A.

 

ALISA YANG BIO

Her practice is rooted in collage across mediums, from two-dimensional work to installation and film. She explores themes of language, cultural identity, memory, and sexualities of diasporas. Her work has shown in Riverside Art Museum, Orange County Center of Contemporary Arts, and New Mexico Museum of Art. Her recent films Please Come Again (2016) andSleeping with the Devil (2016) won the first Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Golden Reel Award for Short Documentary and the Ann Arbor Film Festival’s Best Regional Filmmaker Award, respectively.

Caldera Announces 2019 Artists in Residence

Posted on: August 18th, 2018

Caldera announces 23 artists who have been selected for residencies in winter 2019. These artists will spend up to a month at the Caldera Arts Center near Sisters, Oregon. “Caldera is honored to announce three dynamic and diverse groups of Artists in Residence who will be creating, living, presenting, and teaching this winter at our Arts Center,” said Executive Director Brian Detman.

 

Every winter, Caldera welcomes artists from around the country accepted to the AiR Program for month-long stays at the Arts Center. Residencies are awarded based on a competitive application process open to artists from all disciplines. For many artists, residencies are a vital part of the artistic process, giving them time and space to focus, untethered by daily distractions, in a community of artists who can enhance reflection and energize new work in unexpected ways, while surrounded by a different landscape than their home environments. In 2019, residents will create new works in theatre, sculpture, nonfiction, dance, poetry, film, and many other genres.

 

While in residence, these artists will also offer workshop to students in Caldera’s Youth Program as well as to the public. More information on public workshops will be available in November.

 

Doors to the Arts Center (31500 Blue Lake Dr., Sisters) will open to the public for Caldera’s Artists in Residence Open Studios on January 26, February 23, and March 23 from 12:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m. Artists in Residence, as well as Caldera students, share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

 

Applications for 2020 residencies will be open in January 2019.

Caldera Announces 2018 Artists in Residence

Posted on: November 17th, 2017

Caldera is honored to announce the 21 dynamic and diverse artists from around the country who will be participating in our 16th group of Artists in Residence (AiR). These artists will each be spending a month this winter (January, February, and March) creating, living, collaborating, performing, and teaching at our Arts Center near Sisters, Oregon. 

 

Residencies are awarded based on a competitive application process that is open to artists from all disciplines. For many artists, residencies are a vital part of the artistic process, giving them time and space to focus, untethered by daily distractions, in a community of artists who can enhance reflection and energize new work in unexpected ways, while surrounded by a landscape different than their home environment. In 2018, residents will create new works in Japanese drumming, sculpture, dance, graphic non-fiction, fiber arts, jazz, poetry, film, and many other genres.

 

In addition to their personal artistic practice, Artists in Residence are integrated into Caldera’s year-round Youth Program by teaching workshops to high school students in Central Oregon. AiR will also teach free public writing workshops through a partnership with Deschutes Public Library. Workshops for the public will include comics, devotional writing, and using humor in fiction. Details and registration information will be available soon on Caldera’s website.

 

Maesie Speer, Arts Center Programs Manager, says, “This group of artists brings a diversity of perspectives, experiences and artistic practices to Central Oregon. One of our values at Caldera is lifelong learning, and we are happy to partner with other organizations to connect these creative individuals with the public through workshops and our Open Studios events. If you’ve never been to our Arts Center, Open Studios are a great opportunity to visit and engage with artists making vital, contemporary work.”

 

Doors to the Arts Center (31500 Blue Lake Dr., Sisters) open to the public for Caldera’s Artists in Residence Open Studios on January 27, February 24, and March 24 from 12:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m. AiR, as well as Caldera students, share their work with the public through presentations and performances. Admission is free and light refreshments will be served.

 

Caldera’s AiR Program is also one of the few in the nation that supports parent artists by allowing children and an additional caretaker to accompany an Artist in Residence during their stay. Caldera Programs Director Elizabeth Quinn notes that, “This year, there will be a record number of parent artists. As a nonprofit committed to the development of young people, the support of parent artists is a natural and powerful extension of our work.” Quinn also notes that, “It’s critical that our programs are as accessible as possible to all artists and supportive of their families. We can’t wait to welcome six families in 2018!”

How Can Caldera’s AiR Program Better Serve Artists of Color?

Posted on: May 24th, 2017

CalderaOpenStudio_Sp17-6303If you dropped into Caldera’s Studio B in late April, you might not have recognized it! White walls were covered in shimmering gold and handmade signs proclaimed the space the “Golden Spot Print Shop”. This transformation was led by Sharita Towne in collaboration with Luann Algoso, Demian DinéYazhi´, bart fitzgerald, and Patricia Vázquez Gómez, our 2017 Golden Spot Artists in Residence supported by The Ford Family Foundation.

 

As part of Caldera’s work to increase racial equity across all parts of our organization, we recognized that our Artists in Residence (AiR) Program needed to be more welcoming and accessible to artists of color. We worked with Sharita Towne to curate an intercultural group of artists to come together in residency to explore possibilities and wrestle with the question, “How can Caldera’s AiR Program better serve artists of color?”

 

In response, the group imagined a new type of residency experience at Caldera–one makes space for individual work, collaboration, and peer-to-peer learning across disciplines. Each artist utilized the print shop for their own needs, some utilizing this technique for the first time. They shared their skills with Caldera high school youth in a Saturday workshop (see photos on Facebook here), and also came together for discussions with Caldera staff to examine each part of the AiR program.

 

Thanks to additional funding from The Oregon Community Foundation, we will be able to continue our work with this group and add additional artists from other disciplines. Look for community engagement activities in Central Oregon and Portland over the next year and news on program updates.
