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.

How the residency work:

4 week accommodation at Sillk Residents Gallery
Private view/press viewings and other publicity
Design and printing of invitations, mail out and social media invites
Photography of work for catalogue, website, press and online store
Featured work & artist information on and social medias

Payment & Pricing:

The price for the 4 week residency program including accommodation is €650 inclusive. This will be 4 weeks accommodation and full use of the space and a following 4 week long exhibition of works produced during your stay. If artists wish to stay longer this can be discussed.

We take 0% commission on works sold throughout the duration of the artists stay.

We have also set up an art fund via Patreon - The funds from this will be returned to each artist during their stay, its something we are truing to build so please check out the page and text before sending in submissions.
