Deadline: 5 November 2017
Dates: September 3 – October 26, 2018
Location: Aarhus, Denmark
Eligibility: International visual artists
Focus: Networking and research
Aarhus Center for Visual Art (Aarhus Billedkunstcenter, AaBKC) invites international visual artists to apply to AaBKC Residency’s Fall 2018 program. The aim of AaBKC Residency is to introduce international artists and curators to the visual arts scene in Aarhus, the second largest city in Denmark. Specifically, the program facilitates networking as a mode of artistic research.
AaBKC Residency’s Fall 2018 program invites one international artist to live and work in Aarhus from September 3 – October 26, 2018, where s/he will have an opportunity to meet local artists and arts professionals, visit artist studios and exhibition spaces, and participate in networking meetings and cultural events.
In addition to exploring the arts community of Aarhus, AaBKC Residency also gives visiting artists the time and space they need to conduct research, produce art, or engage in other self-directed work, as desired. We do not expect a specific product or exhibition as the result of the residency, but wish to provide residents with the necessary resources to make the most of their time in Denmark.
Living accommodations, work space, and a small exhibition space will be provided. AaBKC staff will also offer comprehensive administrative support throughout the residency, working with the selected artist to develop a residency program tailored to his/her specific interests and professional goals, offering professional counseling, and introducing the resident artist to relevant networking partners.
Emerging and established artists are welcome to apply. The successful applicant will have a strong desire to expand their network of artists, curators, gallerists, and other arts professionals.
