Aarhus Center for Visual Art (Aarhus Billedkunstcenter, AaBKC) invites international visual artists to apply to AaBKC Residency’s Fall 2017 program.
The aim of AaBKC Residency is to introduce international artists and curators to the visual arts scene in Aarhus, Denmark – the second largest city in Denmark and designated European Capital of Culture 2017.
Specifically, the program facilitates networking as a mode of artistic research.
AaBKC Residency’s Fall 2017 program invites one international artist to live and work in Aarhus from August 14 – September 22, 2017, 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. By focusing on networking, AaBKC Residency facilitates short- and long-term professional development, allowing artists to broaden their knowledge base, develop new and meaningful professional contacts and relationships, create future work opportunities, refine their networking skills, and build other vital professional capacities.
Living accommodations, work space, and a small exhibition space will be provided, as well as a stipend (6.000 DKK) and travel support (2.500 DKK). 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 contacts.
Please submit a brief motivation letter (max. 500 words), CV (max. 2 pages) and current portfolio to email@example.com
