SUMMER 2020 RESIDENCY CALL for CONTEMPORARY ART project

Share

Category:

Theme:

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Can Serrat, approximately 1187 square meters, is a classic old Catalan farmhouse.  In 1989, eleven Norwegian artists bought the house and renovations began. The space operates as a center for artistic and writing production. Can Serrat is located in the beautiful environment of El Bruc, a small village that skirts the mountain of Montserrat, and is just forty-five kilometers from Barcelona.  The house provides various spaces and workshops for working in an awe-inspiring surrounding natural environment. A pleasant walk along paths and trails leads one from the house to the foot of the mountain, where one can enjoy a spectacular view of Les Agülles, or The Needles, of Montserrat.

Can Serrat functions as a community where people from different cultures, fields, and topics of research can meet under the same roof. The house organizes ongoing projects that everyone is welcome to participate in during their stay here.  These include, but are not limited to, a selected residency program for contemporary art and writing projects, a local nonprofit organization called Els Amics de Can Serrat that organizes activities within the local context, and a co-op for local and ecological products. Every month the house welcomes and organizes different activities in order to activate the research of the projects in production: sound recorded debates proposed by residents themselves, a monthly open mic, a dinner in which we invite local citizens of the village to have a cultural exchange with the household, project presentations, a book club in which we share resources by reading excerpts and texts in various languages, ping pong, and visits to relevant cultural project spaces and other residencies.

Can Serrat is a space of creation, community, and process.  As such, the activities we organize are oriented around this idea and reflect an interest in being present to that process, research, question, doubt, understanding, curiosity, and debate.

Within the residency program Can Serrat offers individual support and resources to each resident as need be. The call is open to all themes and mediums. Selected residents will have the time and space to work on their own writing projects while in residence at Can Serrat. 

 

The jury is composed of:

Sophie Blais (Director) and Sarah Goodchild Robb (Artist coordination and administration)

+ Xavier Acarin __ catalan curator based in NYC __ http://www.xaviacarin.net  __ invited curator for PARASITIO project 2019

 

Dates of the residency will be:

Full grant: August – September 2020

Partial grants: Between July and September 2020

 

Prizes Details: 

The jury will select 16 proposals to be a part of the summer residency.  

The breakdown will be the following:

– 1 fully funded grant

– 5 grants at 70% cost (570€ left to cover by the selected artist)

– 5 grants at 50% cost (930€ left to cover by the selected artist)

– 5 grants at 30% cost (1290€ left to cover by the selected artist)

Can Serrat does not support travel expenses

SAC International Curatorial Residency Program 2020

SAC International Curatorial Residency Program 2020 is the residency program at Barcelona's Sant Andreu Contemporani, in collaboration with Fabra i Coats - Fàbrica de Creació and Institut Ramon Llull, available to international curators. As part of the program, we are announcing an open call for proposals to choose an international curator who will be part of the Miquel Casablancas Prize for the Visual Arts’ jury in 2020, and will later develop a curatorial project with a selection of catalan artists chosen from applicants to the prize. The project must be presented at the country of residence of the curator or in another international venue that she/he decides. The residency covers the expenses of jurying the prize and for the curatorial proposal (1,700 € subject to applicable taxes), for the production of the exhibition (2,000 € subject to applicable taxes), accommodation and travel.

The purpose of the open call is to offer the curator personal knowledge of the art context through involvement in the jury of the Miquel Casablancas Prize, and to foster, in the context of young art talent, future international collaborations between local and foreign cultural actors.

Requirements:

- The selected curator will be a member of the 2020 Miquel Casablancas Prize for the Visual Art’s jury. She or he will take also part in the decision process and will develop a curatorial project with a selection of four Catalan artists or linked to the Catalan context, applicants to the prize. An honorary of 1,700 € (subject to applicable taxes) is reserved for this purpose.
- The curator will be provided with a working space at Barcelona’s Fabra i Coats – Fàbrica de Creació the month of April, 2020. Access hours are: Monday to Fridays from 9:00am to 10:00pm, and Saturdays from 10:00am to 9:00pm. The curator can extend her/his stay another month. She/he can continue using the assigned space but will not receive more remuneration than agreed.
- The working space is situated on the first floor of Barcelona’s Fabra i Coats - Fabrica de Creació and a Wi-Fi connection is fully available.
- The curator will have a budget of 1,000 € (subject to applicable taxes) for her/his accommodation expenses for the month of April. In no case, the expenses of public transport (taxi, bus ...) and diets are covered.
- The curatorial project must be included in the exhibition program of Sant Andreu Contemporani. For this purpose, the curator will have at her/his disposition a production fund of 2,000 € (subject to applicable taxes).
- The curatorial project must be presented in the country of residence of the selected curator or in another country with which she/he has links. To fulfil this requirement is essential that the curator submits documentation about the venue, center or gallery where the works will be later presented, and the agreements reached with the head in charge of the institution. The project must be developed during a month between 06.15.2020 and 12.10.2020.
- The production fund will be available only at the starting of the exhibition.
- The curator must be available to attend, in her/his work space, those meetings with artists, curators, critics and other relevant figures of the contemporary visual arts that are programed by SAC’s managing team.
- Fabra i Coats - Fabrica de Creació shall not be held responsible for any loss of personal property nor be liable to third party damages as consequence of the development of the residency.
- It is essential that the curator knows Spanish or Catalan.
The winner must be aware of the fulfillment of the tax obligations and with the Social Security imposed by the current provisions and not have any debt with the Barcelona City Council.

Application:

All interested applicants must fill the submission form available at the website above with the following information:
- Contact information
- Cove letter
- Statement of intent (describing the curator’s interests)
- Curriculum vitae and portfolio of previous curatorial projects
- Documentation related to the applicant’s chosen exhibition venue at her or his country of residence

A selection committee comprised of Eva Sòria Puig (Institut Ramon Llull), Oriol Gual (ICUB) and the full managing team of Sant Andreu Contemporani (Jordi Pino, director; and Zaida Trallero and Pablo G. Polite, curators) will choose a curator among all the applicants. If any member of the committee can not attend the deliberation, she/he must delegate the vote to someone else who represents her/him.

Evaluation criteria:

- Innovation and originality both in the conceptual approach and in the formalization of the project.
- Quality and creativity of the project.
- Professional career of the curator.
- Project viability.
- Relevance of the exhibition venue receiving the project (art center, hall, gallery, museum …).

The commission may declare the open call void if considers that none of the projects presented has the characteristics or sufficient means to enjoy the residence and make the exhibition.

The registration period to send the application is going to be from July 1st, 2019, to January 10th, 2020. The submission form will be available at the website until midnight, January 10th.
