Eligibility:

 

We here at SIILK GALLERY are looking for photographers from all walks of life around the world for our 2021/22 residency program. 

 

With the success of our current gallery throughout 2019/20 we have launched a new exhibition space in 2021 in the Athens artists quarter, Metaxourgeio. This has given us the opportunity to transform the upper spaces above the gallery into a residency space, self contained studio and exhibition space.

 

The residency will consist of a 4 week running program with accommodation where you can live and work from the space in Athens, Greece. Use the mezzanine level of the gallery for a show for the 4 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever ways you want. 

 

At the end of each 4 weeks there will be an opening night showcasing the works produced in that time featured at the main Silk Gallery space for an additional 4 weeks. Your works will also be featured in our online gallery for the new website of our mother gallery - www.siilkgallery.com. We will also do a feature / interview with you leading up to the residency. 

 

We can supply any documents to accompany any external funding sources the artists may apply for.

 

How the residency work:

 

4 week accommodation at Sillk Residents Gallery

Private view/press viewings and other publicity

Design and printing of invitations, mail out and social media invites

Photography of work for catalogue, website, press and online store

4 week long exhibition at the main Silk Gallery premises following the residency.

 

Payment & Pricing:

 

The price for the 4 week residency program is split in two, the larger studio space € 800 and smaller €650. This will be 4 weeks accommodation and full use of the space and a following 4 week long exhibition of works produced during your stay. If artists wish to stay longer this can be discussed.

 

We take 0% commission on works sold throughout the duration of the artists stay.
