Open Call - IN//BETWEEN #7 Artist Residency





Green Hill Gallery is pleased to announce the open call for IN//BETWEEN #7 art residency and exhibition program. In//Between is not just an exhibition - it is a collaborative project that brings together artists from different cultures and parts of the world.

In//Between is about creating a space that does not belong to any artist, culture, language, art form, or discipline. For four weeks, the artists selected will get the chance to examine the ways they have previously seen and done things and look to what lies ahead: an open canvas, a blank role of film, a block of clay, an idea or vision that has not been thought of before. 

Throughout this residency, the artists will collaborate to build a unique exhibition that showcases the nexus between cross-cultural dialogue, experience, and growth. Therefore, they will create a space where diversity will be leading the way.

Accepted artists must commit to attend all planning, preparation, gathering, and discussion evenings. The work for this exhibition must be created between the initial group meeting and the opening of the exhibition. Previously created works will not be accepted.

Green Hill Gallery will be available as a studio space for all In//Between artists from 14 March to 08 April 2022.
The residency will be followed by an exhibition at the Green Hill Gallery, from 08 April to 15 May 2022.
The Vernissage will occur on 08 April 2022. 

Who should apply?
This program is suited for any artists who are interested in working in an environment that is characterized by exchange, open-mindedness, diversity and community. Artists who are willing and open to discussions, feedback, and working in a group context will be a perfect fit for this program.  Selected Applicants have to be in Berlin during the entire period of the residency from March 14 through April 08, 2022. The program supports emerging and established artists working with any medium. Applicants must exhibit foundational skills in creating and exhibiting art through their portfolio submissions.

Because of travel restrictions due to the pandemic, we only accept applications from participants already residing in EU or those that have already obtained Visas.
