The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind that represents our unpaid working hours.

Our concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating in our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over. 

 

The Program activities are:

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested 
  • contact to the local art scene, 
  • organized museum tours, 
  • scheduled art critiques, 
  • published artists spotlight on each artist
  • professional install and exhibition pictures
  • two group exhibitions in interesting venues.

  • one furnished up to 36m² large space per artist in our 465m² large communal loft hall including wifi and all side costs (water, underfloor heating, energy, kitchen, toilet, etc.)
  • desk, little storage space
  • depends on the work of the artists, but two walls to work on
  • large windows 
  • approximately twelve artists per month working in the space 
  • furnished shared tea kitchen with fridge, microwave, hotplate
  • Common area

Participants receive all documentation necessary to apply for funding and the visa process. If required, the project can assist with additional individual reference letters. We’re looking for artists to participate in our program in the 49th round from October – December 2021

 

TERM:  January – March 2023

DEADLINE: 30.09.22

OPEN CALL: VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Lo Schermo dell’Arte presents the eleventh edition of VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research, residency and production programme dedicated to artists who use moving images in their artistic practice.

The project, curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, will be held in Florence in conjunction with the 15th Lo Schermo dell’Arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival (November 15 – 20, 2022). The 8 participants will be young European artists who work with moving images; they will be selected through an open call organised in collaboration with some of Europe’s leading art academies, schools and artist residencies. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 9, 2022.

After 10 years VISIO develops further by introducing the VISIO Production Fund, a €40,000 production fund conceived in partnership with Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes) and Seven Gravity Collection.

Eight artists will be selected and invited to Florence and will have the opportunity to develop their own original project in dialogue with international curators and producers. Sharing and exchange between participants and professionals are facilitated by an intensive programme of mentoring sessions, round tables and individual meetings. Funds will eventually be awarded to four winning artists who will work with Leonardo Bigazzi, and the Schermo dell’Arte team, to produce the works and premiere them at the Festival in 2023. An artist’s edition of each of the works produced will become part of the permanent collection of the project’s partner institutions, which are committed to promote and exhibit them in the following years.

The beginning of this new course will also be accompanied by the release of a publication dedicated to the first ten years of VISIO. The book traces the history of the project and promotes the research of the 128 artists who took part in the programme and the exhibitions organised between 2012 and 2021. The book aims to investigate some of the fundamental themes animating the international debate in the field of moving images today through texts commissioned for the occasion and conversations with artists, curators, researchers, collectors and producers involved in the project over the years.

Prize Summary: 
40000 euros
Prizes Details: 

Artists are invited to submit a project for an original video work still in the early stages of development. There are no restrictions on the duration and/or format of the proposed work (single-channel, multi-channel installations, VR, augmented reality, etc.). Co-productions with museums, festivals, production companies or other international institutions are allowed.

Through the open call Leonardo Bigazzi will select 8 artists who will be invited to Florence from 15 – 20 November 2022 to develop their projects with the VISIO team. After the week-long residency the participants will have until 5 December 2022 to rework their proposals based on the feedback received during the meetings.

The 4 winning projects will receive 10,000 euros each and will be selected by 16 December 2022 by Leonardo Bigazzi in dialogue with the institutional partners who will co-produce the works: Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes) and Seven Gravity Collection. An artist’s edition of the work produced will become part of the permanent collection of the co-producing institution.

The curator and the team of Lo schermo dell’arte will work closely with the winning artists, offering them all the necessary production support until the work is completed and delivered with English subtitles by October 1, 2023.

The winning works will be premiered at Lo schermo dell’arte in 2023.

Call to Artists: Collage Artist Residency in Scotland

Category:

Country:

City:

Organisation:

Eligibility:

An in-person residency at MERZ Gallery in Sanquhar, Scotland centered on collage artists who want to incorporate history and folklore into their artist practice. Residents will make artwork for an exhibition and book. 

Deadline to Apply: 31 July 2022Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis until space is filled. Artists are encouraged to apply well before the deadline. 

ABOUT THE RESIDENCY

Collage Artist Residency: Scotland is a week-long artist residency designed for artists working in collage who seek to engage with place in their practice. Using the rural community of Sanquhar, Scotland as a laboratory, artists will spend a week making artwork; learning about the place, its people, and its history; and discussing how art can capture, share, reflect, comment, and otherwise engage with a sense of place. The goal of the residency is to develop an individual methodology for responding to place in one’s art practice and to make a work of art about Sanquhar that speaks to and about the people and land. Our hope is that artists will return to their home communities with fresh eyes and be prepared to see their communities in a unique way.

The residency will unfold over the course of a week. Each day the group will meet in the morning for a presentation or workshop. We will hear from guest artists and local historians about Sanquhar and faculty will make presentations about place in art and strategies for incorporating place into one’s practice. Designed for collage artists, professional development sessions focus on artist practice: topics include Collage as Artist Practice; Sourcing Materials, Copyright, Appropriation; Developing Materials; Collage in Presentation. In the afternoons, artists may choose to make art or take up an afternoon activity such as a walk to the River Nith and castle or a visit to the Tolbooth Museum or Saint Bride’s church or an afternoon trip via rail to Dumfries or Glasgow. Artists will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty. In the evenings, we will convene at the Nithsdale Pub to informally share the experience of our days. 

During the residency, artists will make an artwork that will be exhibited at MERZ Gallery as part of “Mythical Landscape: Secrets of the Vale”, an exhibition by an international group of artists, all of whom traveled to Sanquhar to investigate a sense of place and make artwork that speaks to the rich history and folklore of the region. Artworks reference stories from the past (true or otherwise), consider the history of the region, and speculate on future myths and legends. An evolving exhibition at MERZ Gallery in September 2022 will culminate with the Festival of Folklore, 22-25 September 2022. The artwork will be the subject of a film by David Rushton and used to illustrate a forthcoming, abridged version of William Wilson’s 1904 book, Folk Lore and Genealogies of Uppermost Nithsdale.

Concept: A Sense of Place

“We are living today on a threshold between a history of alienated displacement from and longing for home and the possibility of a multi-centered society that understands the reciprocal relationship between the two,” writes Lucy Lippard in The Lure of the Local. “Most of us are separated from organic geographical communities; even fewer can rely on blood ties. We can only hope to find created communities—people who come together because they are alike on some level—or communities that are accidentally formed through place, workplace, and other more artificial means. Sometimes created places, based in dissimilarity, can be more vital and less isolating than unchosen ones. But most of us live such fragmented lives and have so many minicommunities that no one knows us as a whole. The incomplete self longs for the fragments to be brought together. This can’t be done without a context, a place.”

For artists, a sense of place or a lack thereof, poses a particular challenge when making art that speaks to a community. Lippard’s observation that “all art is regional” seems to contradict the idea “that there is no such thing as regionalism in our homogenized, peripatetic, electronic culture.” We see it differently; that the artist is uniquely situated to show and speak to place in a way that makes it seen, understood, and celebrated. 

About Sanquhar, Scotland

Sanquhar is a rural Scottish community with a rich agricultural and manufacturing heritage. Located on the River Nith, the area has been an important crossroads going back to Neolithic times and is the site of several prehistoric British forts and a Roman outpost. A 15th-century castle ruin overlooks the town. Mary, Queen of Scots came to Sanquhar in May 1568 after her defeat at the battle of Langside. In the 17th century, Sanquhar was the site of unrest during the Covenanting period when Scottish Presbyterians fought to maintain the Church of Scotland. Agriculture, coal mining, and wool production and related industries such as knitting and carpet making flourished in the 18th century. The town hosts the world’s oldest working post office (established in 1712) and the world’s oldest curling society (formed in 1774). The Church of St Bride’s sanctuary was dedicated to a lost, then found World War I soldier. The village of Crawick on the edge of town had once been known as a haven for witches. The Tolbooth Museum was designed by the influential 18th century Scottish architect William Adam.

Sites of Interest: Tolbooth Museum, Sanquhar Castle, Crawick Multiverse, Old Town Hall, River Nith, Saint Bride’s Church, Sanquhar Declarations Monument, and A’ the Airts (home to Sanquhar Knitting Patterns).
