RESIDENCY 108 spring session




Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. 

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians.

The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.

Visiting Artist Residency at Trestle Gallery





Application Deadline: December 10, 2019 (11:59PM)

Residency Dates: January 1 - June 30, 2020

All artists will be notified by email within 2 weeks post the application deadline.


The Visiting Artist Residency (VAR) at Trestle Gallery allows artists to explore and deepen their practice while sharing their artistic experience and creative process with the public and the Trestle Art Space community. Our mission is to cultivate a supportive and diverse arts community and we seek artists with an interest in education and activism as part of their practice.


Twice a year, two artists are offered a private studio membership in exchange for enriching Trestle’s public and studio programming. This residency is ideal for established artists with a serious practice and dedication to community engagement. The residency includes 24/7 access to our facilities, participation in Gowanus Open Studios & South Brooklyn Open Studios, and representation on our member registry. The 6-month residency culminates in a group exhibition at Trestle Gallery in December 2020 showcasing all four 2020 VARs.


Responsibilities of Visiting Artist Residents at Trestle:


- Leading Monthly Critiques - These two hour meetings are free and open to the public. They encourage a dialogue between artists of different media to share and  talk about their work, all the while expanding their practice. We seek to provide members of the local community with support and professional development that they might not otherwise have access to.


- Holding Scheduled Studio Hours - Trestle’s VAR will designate one 3 hour block of time each month to meet with members of Trestle Art Space. These meetings offer support to artists by allowing them to show their work, review artist statements, and seek professional advice. Providing letters of reference/recommendation is not expected.


- Engaging with the Trestle and South Brooklyn Community - More generally, VARs will facilitate and promote the sharing of ideas and enhance our dynamic culture. We encourage VAR artists to get involved with the community at Trestle and the local South Brooklyn community by inviting guest speakers, attending Trestle Gallery exhibition opening/closing receptions and participating in open studio events.


*Please note: we do not provide housing*

Background information about the residence’s location

At the end of the 19th century, an artists’ colony was founded in Darmstadt, as it was common in other places in Germany at the same time as well. Between 1899 and 1914, several renowned artists of the art nouveau lived and worked on Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt. In the 1960s, the city of Darmstadt established a new colony for artists. For this, seven studio- and residential houses, planned by Rolf Prange, Rudolf Kramer, Bert Seidel, Heribert Hausmann and Reinhold Kargel, were errected at the Park Rosenhöhe (adjacent to Mathildenhöhe) from 1965 to 1967. Among others, writer Heinrich Schirmbeck, poet Karl Krolow, art historian Hans Maria Wingler and sculptor Wilhelm Loth lived and worked here.

In 2018, the house previously owned by Family Hensel was completely furnished with financial means of the city and has since been in use of the society of »Kultur einer Digitalstadt«. The society’s aim is to try out different ways of events and support for both artists, researchers and experts within various and interdisciplinary fields of practice, in the Atelierhaus Ludwig-Engel-Weg 1. The studio- and residential houses combined constitute an architectural ensemble. The other six identical building complexes on Rosenhöhe are partially occupied by artists. An open garden connects the settlement’s houses with each other. Through the adjacent Mathildenhöhe, the historical artists’ colony and the neighbouring Hochschule Darmstadt/ Faculty of Design, Atelierhaus Ludwig-Engel-Weg 1 additionally becomes a place with special importance for the contemporary artists living there for a limited period of time.

»Bizarre Escapes — Humour in Photography«

About this year’s topic of »11. Darmstadt Photography Days«

Humour and photography share more common aspects than is superficially apparent. Both of them probe the status quo, exaggerate events and process experiences from a specifically selected viewpoint. With pointed precision, photography employs odd perspectives in order to visualize, in concentrated moments or by means of unconventional staging, the world in which we live. Only through captivated contemplation can we gain new insights. Humour charmingly takes a look at the everyday, sketching its opposite with a slightly displaced gaze, playing with superficial associations – and causing things below the surface to flare up. Humour or satire in the image are able to visualize comical situations, surprising turns and unexpected contradictions. 

The distanced or displaced mode of contemplation conveys new perspectives to us – and ideally, societal action can be derived from the unexpected findings. At all events, these findings make the gravity of life more bearable and query our attitudes, values and prejudices.


A jury, consisting of the following members, will chose one or more suitable candidates for the residence:

Lukas Einsele (CEO of the society of »Kultur einer Digitalstadt«)

Julia Reichelt (Director of Kunstforum of TU Darmstadt)

Alexandra Lechner (photographer/ founding member of »Darmstadt Photography Days«/ RAY-Curator)

Gregor Schuster (photographer/ founding member of »Darmstadt Photography Days«)

2020-21 Call for artists




Deadline: January 10, 2020



Est-Nord-Est (ENE) is an artist-run centre whose mission is to provide an international community of artists and authors in contemporary art with support by offering space and time for research and experimentation, as well as privileged access to local resources and knowhow.


The centre is situated in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, a village on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, in a unique geographic and historical locale. The predominant aspects of the landscapes are farms, forests, and the river. Saint-Jean-Port-Joli is situated 115 km from Quebec City and 350 km from Montreal.


Originally based on the idea of encounters between sculptors with contemporary practices and those using regional traditional skills, ENE now welcomes contemporary visual-arts artists from all disciplines. The residencies at ENE are intended for professional artists, both established and emerging, from all over the world. They offer artists and authors an opportunity to explore their research more deeply, to experiment, and to create in a cultural space that is unique, lively, and stimulating. ENE is a member of Res Artis, Pépinières européennes de création and of the Regroupement des centres d’artistes autogérés du Québec.


The eight-week residency periods, which bring together four artists and one author in the field of contemporary art, are offered in spring, summer, fall, and, in 2020 for the first time, winter. In summer 2019, Est-Nord-Est moved into its new building created and designed specifically for artist and author residencies. The centre’s expertise in hosting residencies oriented the choices made when its premises were built. This new architectural concept places exchanges, friendly relations, and technical and logistical assistance at the heart of the experience offered to residents. Through these choices, the centre once again reaffirms its innovative position with regard to art residencies.
