Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA) invites applications of interest for a Virtual Artist Residency as part of the inaugural pilot project Test Space Residency, to take place for 8 weeks during the Autumn/Winter of 2021.
Test Space Residency is a new and forward-thinking residency model that aspires to meet the needs of a wide range of art practitioners. It considers the availability of the LCGA space both physically and virtually.
The Virtual Artist Residency will utilise the LCGA virtual space – a temporary online website platform.
- LCGA welcomes applicant’s individual ideas for use of the LCGA temporary website platform as an online workspace. (Please specify how you wish to do this in the application form) Examples may include: live streaming from home studio, a writing/research or blog forum, an interactive digital or animated platform, a gallery of works or ongoing projects, concept or ideas generation platform.
- The successful candidate will be supported by a member of the LCGA in-house team.
- The successful candidate will receive an artist fee of €3,000. This fee will be in 2 allocations – 50% (1,500 euro) at the beginning of the residency, and the remaining 50% (1,500 euro) on completion of the residency period.
This international, funded opportunity welcomes artists whose work may be suited to a temporary online space, or benefit from online development, promotion, or simply the time to think, plan and research, supported remotely by LCGA over the duration of the residency.
