Virtual art is a virtual exhibition, dedicated to promoting artistic and creative expression.

This project is defined by a need to accurately express art, appeal to several senses, move within the light, the shadows, and the colours, play with the intersections of reality and phantasy, and the boundaries of digital and analogue.

Virtual Residency – Together, separately






The virtual residency is a gathering of artists who work in sync, support one another and use a change in pace to think differently about their creative practice.

Now recruiting artists for the following dates:

The residency is mixed discipline. The program welcomes, but is not limited to: visual artists, conceptual artists, video artists, writers, poets, multidisciplinary artists, performance artists, installation artists, photographers

The content of discussions during the residency will be determined by the work undertaken by participants. Some participants might plan to produce deeply conceptual work. For others the process will be more practical. Others will work on a mixture of both. 

The residency is a week-long, intensive undertaking that lasts for six days, beginning Sunday on Friday. Each cohort is a maximum of six participants. We recognise that it is not possible to carry out an in-person program using virtual tools. This program has been made to make the most of the tools we have rather than try to recreate an in-person residency using video. 


The timetable takes place between 10am and 7pm local to Barcelona (CET). Use the Timezone Converter to see times in your location. 
Welcome and introduction (1h on Sunday)
The six participants will introduce themselves, say where they are from, a little about their creative background and state their intention for the week, as well as how they intend to begin that day. Facilitator shares information about the program and the organisation
Plan and Progress (30mins to 1h daily)
Report on progress from the previous day and state a plan for the current day.
Presentations (45mins to 1h daily)
Participants will each give a ten-minute presentation followed by Q&A 
Debriefing (30mins on Friday)
Participants will be asked to share their thoughts surrounding the outcomes of the residency and future plans. 

Participation Requirements

/  Prepare and deliver a ten-minute presentation of their work to fellow residents.
/  Commit to attending all meetings.
/  Allocate the majority of the working day outside the meetings to creative practice. 
/  Actively take part in discussion of others work, seek ways to contribute ideas and offer support to fellow residents.
/  Be willing to listen to the ideas and support from fellow residents regarding their own work.
/  Contribute one ‘daily newsletter’ of inspirational content (text or visual) to be sent to residents (a template will be provided).
/ Abide by our community guidelines.
/ Be familiar with and able to use the platforms Zoom and Telegram. Attention to video calling set up is essential.

A virtual program allows those who cannot travel to take part. However, the residency is also a commitment, and shouldn’t be undertaken unless at least four-to-five hours per day can be set aside to attend meetings and move creative work forward. 

Admission criteria

Active creative practice
Experience of taking part in online groups and calls
Clear desired outcomes for the residency
Ability to take part fully without the interruption of other commitments
Familiar with the language used to discuss the art-making process

Enthusiastic about taking part in a virtual environment

YET TO .COM(E) Virtual Creation Residency






Calling for artists based in Argentina, Iran, USA, France, Switzerland, and Germany. This call is open to all artists with various disciplines that wish to engage in a virtual creation residency.

• YET TO .COM(E) invites six interdisciplinary artists to collaborate in artistic dialogue and practice with another. The program establishes three distinctive virtual residency incubators where two artists can live, brainstorm, and dream about a shared futurethrough their unique artistic lenses. 

In the current pandemic, we are left with the tension of global and local concerns. The present feels dystopian. The future is unknown. Therefore, we believe sharing a virtual creation space is needed to break this individual isolation. Despite all the challenges we face today, YET TO .COM(E) seeks to break down the artistic limits by a playful and experimental engagement in the digital sphere. 

• YET TO .COM(E) is made possible by these international partners:
Espace Croisé (FR)
Plataforma Lodo (ARG)
Work It Out Platform (CH/DE)
Re-connect Festival (Internet)

Application fee: Free
Each artist is offered a fee of: €700
Application deadline: December 5
