Open call for SIILK Gallery's artists in Residence





We here at SIILK GALLERY are looking for artists from all walks of life for around the world for our 2020 residency program. 

With the success of our current Gallery throughout 2019 we will be launching a new exhibition space in 2020. This has gave us the opportunity to transform our current gallery into a residency 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 space in Athens, Greece. Use the place for a solo show for the 4 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever way you want. 

At the end of each 4 weeks there will be an opening night showcasing the works produced in that time. 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. 

Info about the gallery:

Our gallery is situated in the Exarchea / Neapoli area of Athens, Greece. The area is the center of art and culture in Athens, it has a thriving arts scene and community. Exarchea has an edgy alternative vibe, its streets decorated with politically charged murals and lined with anarchist bookshops and stores selling rare vinyl and vintage antiques. Bars and clubs host live music, including rembetika, jazz and punk acts. For night life and the arts, entertainment and contemporary culture it is the place to be in Athens, Greece.

The Gallery is spread over 2 floors to exhibit in and an upstairs self contained studio for our residents..

It is in a very central location with access from a main road, it has a full 2 story glass double frontage so it makes for a very bright exhibiting space.
