DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY -  EXILE, MIGRATION, FOREIGNNESS

This artist in residence programme will run alongside a major exhibition entitled ‘ODYSEES’ that we are hosting in partnership with the Abattoirs Museum - Frac Occitanie, Toulouse. ‘Odysees’ is part of the programme ‘Je suis né étranger’

Artists : Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Julien Creuzet, Ninar Esbar, Bouchra Khalili, Nil Yalter

“Je suis né étranger” - “I was born a foreigner" is an outreach programme of exhibitions organised by the Abattoirs, and based on the exhibition "Picasso and Exile - A history of Spanish art in resistance" at the Abattoirs, 15 March - 25th August 2019. Each exhibition is unique and articulated in relation to the specific history of each territory and its public, commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Retirada.

The residency programme is two fold - Drawing Research and Mediation.

We want to give selected artists the opportunity to develop their work alongside a major exhibition featuring several recognised international artists whose work reflects contemporary stories of exile, articulating a personal and a collective story.

Artists are expected to establish a dialogue between their own artistic practice and that of the current exhibition. How does the viewer perceive contemporary art and engage with it and others.

Artists will also have the opportunity to show  their own work and offer workshops, artist talks etc in compliment to the ‘ODYSEES’ exhibition programme

We are interested in creative people who would appreciate the opportunity for cultural exchange and sustained concentration in a supportive professional studio environment, in order to develop their artistic practice by engaging in new perspectives, experiences and challenges.

Proposals are invited from visual artists for whom drawing plays an important part in their creative practice. We would encourage a residency period of two or three months to make the most of this opportunity, the minimum period would be one month.

DRAWinternational set out some years ago to celebrate drawing ‘for itself’ and ‘for others’ i.e. as it relates to other representational media. Our artists-in-residence programme attracts artists who wish to extend their professional practice and theoretical understanding, with the very issues reflected in contemporary society. That is, through human endeavour, reflection, discourse and action. These artists come from many different countries and bring with them many diverse experiences, but all have something in common, a humanity and a passion for drawing.

We work with architects, designers, writers and professionals in the applied and fine arts. Our provision is both theoretical and practice based, working with artists when required, assisting them to be more objective, thus distancing themselves somewhat from the aesthetic object. (The Phenomenology of Aesthetic Experience, 1973, Mikel Dufrenne).

The centre for drawing research is situated in the heart of Caylus, a small medieval village in SW France, a rural community with a growing number of artists and craftspeople.

DRAWinternational A-i-R programme continues to expand notions of drawing:

to cater for creative people in pursuit of new and dynamic form, in preparation for exhibition, publication or postgraduate qualification and support artists in their professional practice/research.

Artists are selected on the quality of their residency proposal, its relevance to DRAW's philosophy, the environment and evidence of previous artistic work.

The centre organises events such as, exhibitions, open workshops and seminars/presentations, to promote it's activities, share creative experience and opportunities within the public domain.

Accommodation/studio/workshop facilities

Artists are accommodated in self catering apartments with private rooms and shared kitchen, bathroom, dining/sitting room and gardens at ‘l'Ancienne gendarmerie’.

Artists are allocated individual studio spaces to suit particular project requirements at the "gendarmerie" with unlimited access.

Academic support and access to relevant documentation.

Regular discussion of work to include individual and group critiques and practical workshops

Organisation and promotion of an event at the beginning/end of the residency for the public. Editing and translation of written text.

Cultural Program (visits, meetings and other facilitated activities together)

Support for artists to encourage integration within the community.

Internet access (wifi) for personal laptops.

Fees

The DRAWING RESEARCH RESIDENCY - EXILE, MIGRATION, FOREIGNNESS is partially funded.
