Open Call for Joint Residency | Centre for Philosophy and Visual Art and Kunsthuis SYB

open-call-resizedDeadline for applications: 1 December, midnight

King’s College London’s Centre for Philosophy and Visual Art (CPVA), in partnership with Kunsthuis SYB (the Netherlands), is inviting artists to apply for their first ever joint residency programme. This two-stage residency is an exciting opportunity for artists with an existing interest or curiosity in philosophy to be included in university life and develop their research, after which they will be awarded time in Kunsthuis SYB to develop (a) new piece(s) of work.

Applicants working in any discipline or media are invited write a proposal in response to a topic discussed one of two lecture series (see options below; one artist per lecture series will be selected). The resulting works (finished or in progress) will be shown at presentations at the end of the artists’ stay at Kunsthuis SYB, and later in the year at a presentation at King’s College London.

At King’s College, the selected artists will be provided with a temporary student pass (giving them access to all of King’s facilities for the Spring term; 16-1-17 to 28-4-17). They will be expected to attend the lecture series they applied to, and will have the possibility of discussing their work with both the lecturer and the programme curator. King’s does not offer living or working space (except for standard library work spaces), so applicants must be able to provide the necessary facilities themselves. The CPVA offers a fee of £700, and up to a further £500 in expenses. In addition, King’s will host a presentation of the artists’ works at the end of 2017.

At Kunsthuis SYB (which is situated in the north of the Netherlands), the two artists are invited for a six week residency (18-9-17 to 30-10-17). This includes 24-hour access to a furnished apartment and studio space, organizational guidance, artistic feedback, publicity, and a presentation at SYB. During your residency in SYB you will be connected to an artist or curator from SYB’s programming committee for artistic feedback, and to a writer/art critic from SYB’s writers programme who will write about your project. In addition, SYB will offer a budget of €1000 for living expenses and materials.

A final selection will be made by the 12 December 2016.
