Eligibility:

Artist In Residence at Petrohradská kolektiv 2022

Petrohradská kolektiv announces an open call for artists to participate in an international program Artist in Residence for the year 2022.

The residency program is intended for active artists, creators, and theoreticians, who desire independence and want space and technical support for working on their projects. That’s what the Petrohradská kolektiv AiR program offers in the heart of a multi-genre cultural center in Prague. The goal of the program is creating an open platform for international artistic dialogue, interconnection of different cultures, and support for emerging artists working with diverse media.

Residency is an opportunity for independent professional development, artistic exchange, networking, and experiments. 

The resulting artistic outcomes of the residencies will be showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery at the Petrohradská kolektiv complex. The main theme of the exhibition program for 2022 is Transformation, therefore we are asking ask the applicants to take this into account when applying with their projects.

Who are we looking for?

Residencies are intended mainly for artists with interests in creative sharing and participation in the field of Prague contemporary art scene.

Prospective participants should introduce us concrete projects that would be realized within their stay in Prague. The final result of the residency will be traditionally showcased in our own Jedna Dva Tři Gallery. Anyway, the form of the output can be adapted according to each project’s nature.

What do we offer?

  • Accommodation and a studio in the Petrohradská kolektiv complex
  • Covering the travel and material costs (up to 200€)
  • Technical support and consultation
  • Exhibition in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery (or an alternative)
  • Free entrance to all the events organized by Petrohradská kolektiv

The original idea behind Petrohradská kolektiv was to make a community space for creativity and art practice, where there’s a place for both efficient working and pleasant relaxing, where you can focus on your own projects and then take a break without the necessity of leaving the building. 

Within the AiR we provide a technical support, promotion, and a curatorial assistance. Travel and material costs are covered up to a maximum of 200€.

We know that a convenient working environment is fundamental, therefore within the residency we provide a shared studio with a workshop with basic equipment with an area of 60 square meters, a photo/video studio, and a recording studio. Each project requires different technical equipment, therefore the technology needed is consulted with each artist individually.

Each participant gets a private room in a 3-room apartment with a common area, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of the Petrohradská kolektiv building.

Petrohradská kolektiv organizes many cultural events within its complex. All of the residing artists get to attend these events for free.

Within the AiR program, which works in parallel with other events, there’s an opportunity of collaboration with artists and mentors from different cultural backgrounds. Thanks to that, our residents can actively participate in various programs of Petrohradská kolektiv.

 

Residency conditions

Participation in the residential program requires communication skills in English or in Czech.

Each resident is obligated to prepare a final report of their stay including a photo documentation.

Participants of the AiR program of Petrohradská kolektiv are required to spend at least 75% of the duration of their stay in the place of the residency.

The stays include an author’s presentation (or its online equivalent) and an exhibition output or else.

The residency must be completed within the specified period and it is not possible to interrupt it.

Because of the current pandemic, the residency is conditioned by submitting a certificate of vaccination against Covid-19 and a certificate of testing for Covid-19 with a negative result. The costs of the vaccination and the test are not covered by Petrohradská kolektiv. 

Residency duration

AiR 2022 will take place between April 15 - November 30 2022.

When applying, please let us know about your preferred dates.

The residency within the Artist in Residence program doesn’t require any fee paid by the resident. All costs of accommodation and equipment described above will be covered by Petrohradská kolektiv.

The duration of the residency is 4-6 weeks, when the participant is obliged to finish their project and prepare it for the presentation in a form of exhibition.

In the selection procedure, a maximum of 8 applicants will be selected to participate in the AiR program.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 11TH EDITION OF SCULPTURE IN THE CITY

Share

City:

Eligibility:

Sculpture in the City is an award-winning urban sculpture park which launches every year in June. A cultural initiative delivered by the City of London in partnership with 11 local businesses, it is sited in the EC3 (insurance district) area of the City, around the iconic towers of the Gherkin, the Leadenhall Building (The Cheesegrater), Lloyd’s building, 22 Bishopsgate as well as inside Leadenhall Market. The 11th edition of Sculpture in the City offers a very unique opportunity for sculptors, artists, designers and illustrators to not only submit across any one of the five primary categories which are: 3D Sculpture, 2D Graphic Installation, Audio & Visual, Hanging 3D Sculpture and Light & Sound. The call for submissions for the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City is now open for preexisting works that can be exhibited outdoors from May 2022 to May 2022. The deadline for applications is Wednesday 27th October 2021.

Sculpture in the City has delivered 130 artworks over 10 editions successfully amplifying the urban context the show is delivered in; responding to and breathing life into the unique relationship between the historical City landscape and it’s iconic contemporary architecture.

In response to the success of the landmark 10th edition of the Sculpture in the City, we are keen to expand on the engagement with the unique landscape and structures that the City has at its disposal. We are very keen to look at broadening not only the scope of participation, but also the breadth of our reach to allow for a more inclusive and varied approach to representing contemporary public art within this context.

We are launching the open call for submission for the 11th edition of Sculpture in the City on the 27th September 2021 and are delighted to announce the expansion of the submission criteria. This is the submission page for the 3D Sculpture Category and only works that fulfill this criteria will be considered. If you are unsure, we encourage you to look at the submission criteria further down to see all categories listed.

The successful submissions will be on view for a year within one of London’s most iconic architecture areas. The artworks selected for installation are sited in dialogue with both the architecture and the artist.

In addition, Lacuna will organise a webinar for artists unable to join the 'in real life' tours to join online where they will have the opportunity to ask questions. The webinar will be recorded and shared online for anyone who is unable to attend. 

Tour 1 will take place on Friday 1st October 2021 at 3pm

Webinar will take place on Monday 18th October at 2pm

Tour 2 will also take place on Monday 18th October at 4pm

Tour 3 will also take place on Wednesday 20th October at 3pm

To register your interest, please email: office@lacuna-projects.com

Background:

None of the works in Sculpture in the City are here to stay, none are iconic statements; the pleasure is rather the unexpected interactions between works, places, people. [...] It is wholly different from the experience of rural sculpture parks, where monumental pieces stand proud and bold against open skies, yet nature always wins and remains the chief attraction. Here in the beleaguered post-pandemic city, sculpture transforms, cheers and heals.

Jackie Wullschläger - The Financial Times

The aim of the project is to use the Square Mile as a contemporary urban gallery space and to showcase cutting edge art in an area represented by the iconic contemporary towers as well as the layers of history nestled amongst these tall buildings.

The need for partnership between culture and commerce has never been greater with the City of London spearheading various projects to ensure the Lord Mayor’s vision to promote London’s creative energy and competitive strengths. Sculpture in the City is firmly established as a flagship cultural project and is deeply embedded within the ongoing cross-sector programme to deliver and champion projects/ activations that unite business and the creative industries in London.

Sculpture in the City is the City of London’s annual programme which sees public artworks placed amidst the iconic architecture of the City Cluster. The latest outdoor exhibition, forming part of tenth anniversary edition is celebrated with works from 18 contemporary artists; including works by artists Laure Prouvost, Alice Channer, Eva Rothschild, Mark Handforth, Laura Arminda Kingsley, and Rosanne Robertson, among others, on display around the City’s famous buildings and public spaces. Spanning St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate to Fenchurch Street Station Plaza, Leadenhall Market to Mitre Square, this year’s edition will bring contemporary public artworks to the historic and modern spaces of the City.

The current exhibition has achieved extensive press coverage, https://www.sculptureinthecity.org.uk/press/ with a successful campaign led by Brunswick Arts, including The Financial Times, The Telegraph, Time Out London, The Londonist, City Matters, City AM, Something Curated and London Live.

A dedicated website www.sculptureinthecity.org.uk was launched in June 2018 featuring images and information about all the artworks to date as well as a downloadable map of the current edition.

Once a year, the City of London, that enclave of suits, power lunches and Peloton subscriptions plays host to some very non-smashing-Q3-type artworks. ‘Sculpture in the City’ invites artists to create striking public pieces that – crucially – sit outside the security-guard-defended lobbies of the venture capitalists. It’s a great chance to wander around the Square Mile and see it in a different light. Or just see it, full stop. 

Chris Waywell - TimeOut London

Historically:

The artworks exhibited have in the past primarily been 3D and have shown works in a broad variety of materials from marble, stone and metal to neon and light pieces as well as mixed media that may include fabric, ceramic and other contemporary materials. The works may be free-standing or may be shown suspended; for example, hung in Leadenhall Marketor in a tree, or fixed to a wall. This could be time-based art such as sound, film, digital or other media work. We have shown sound work in previous editions as well as film work, which in the current edition is shown on the largest ceiling-mounted LED screen in Europe at ca. 180 sq feet at 10 Fenchurch Avenue as well as a bespoke printed vinyl piece under the escalators of the Leadenhall Building, with both locations currently on view, as part of the 10th edition of Sculpture in the City.

We are also committed to including performance-related artworks. For the past three years, Sculpture in the City has been the associate programme partner to Whitechapel Gallery’s Nocturnal Creatures, a contemporary arts festival that brings together artist performances, music, films, talks and culinary experiences in the heart of the East End, especially the area between the Whitechapel Gallery, Leadenhall Market and Liverpool Street. As part of the 2021 programme, Sculpture in the City commissioned Stone (Butch) Undercurrents (2021) by Rosanne Roberston and 'Shells & Time' by Isabella Martin as part of Whitechapel Gallery’s Nocturnal Creatures.

The exhibition does not have a specific set theme and artworks are selected based on their own merit and their suitability (in terms of material, scale and style) to the urban context.

The Arts Advisory Group is sensitive to the current cultural concerns as well as the wider social and political context in which the exhibition is shown. There is a desire from the Arts Advisory Group to address issues including gender and equality issues, freedom, democracy and representation, belonging and climate concerns.

The project is sited in the public realm and seen by close to 500,000 visitors every year.

There are many potential sites in the area of varying size and conditions. The scale of the surrounding tall buildings calls for large scale works which have been shown very successfully to date. The prevalence of shiny monochrome buildings provide an ideal context for bold colour work. In addition, there are sites, such as the churchyards, which make ideal sites for smaller works. Over the years we have also hung works in Leadenhall Market, in trees, in alleyways, across lampposts, on the Lloyd’s building and on the The Leadenhall Building (Cheesegrater). The scope of the project, and the urban context, allows for sculpture to be showcased in the most contemporary fashion.

Weight and installation ease are often a defining factor as not many of the spaces have a large weight loading capacity and, in some cases, sites identified prove inaccessible.

Artists shown to date include:
