Throughout this residency, we will explore topics such as: collaborative practices and the collective body, embodied knowledge, nomadism, diaspora, cultural and social habitats, performance, fashion, operational aesthetics, wearable technology, architecture, and the body抯 relationships to objects, spaces and environments.
Through group discussions, reflection, individual studio time, critiques, and workshops this residency will provide a platform for a diversity of creative activity. Participants working across all mediums who share a deep interest in these themes are invited to gather, brainstorm and create.
What Does the Program Offer?
Residencies offer structured programs where artists, curators, and other arts professionals come together to create work and discuss pertinent themes. Through peer interaction, discussion groups, studio work, formal lectures, and studio visits from world-renowned visiting artists and curators, participants gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and professional development of their work.
Who should apply?
Visual artists of all disciplines, curators, researchers, designers and architects are welcome. Applicants should have an exhibition/publication record, formal training in visual arts, or equivalent experience and recognition from their peers.
While the language of the program is English, experience speaking French and/or Spanish is considered an asset.
