Athens Art Residency - Siilk






We here at SIILK GALLERY are looking for photographers from all walks of life around the world for our 2022 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 Siilk Building 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 - 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.

Artist Residency at CourCommune







CourCommune offers residencies from 2 weeks up to 3 months during the months of April through October for visual, print and literary artists in a village 100 kilometers south of Paris.

The core of our reflection on the role of art and artists in a rural environment is based on the exploration of spaces, landscapes and the passage of the seasons. Residents have the opportunity to exchange with the inhabitants, as well as interacting with the physical and historical contexts of the surrounding communities.

We wish to make CourCommune an environment for retreat, encounters and experiences - a space to create supported by a space in which to live in the French countryside.
