INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PROPOSALS – ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMME FOR VISUAL ARTISTS
GALERIA PENÍNSULA. PORTO ALEGRE, BRAZIL
3 ARTISTS WILL BE SELECTED – FOR BRAZILIANS AND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS
DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATIONS: AUGUST 27th, 2017
ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE SELECTED: AUGUST 30th, 2017
Península opens the registration period to take part in the Spring edition of its residency program, a place for reflection, the revision of ideas, and sharing of works. This is a space and time of experimentation, distant from the daily pressures and inserted into a collective context. A total of three artistic proposals will be chosen in this open call, whose period for receiving requests is to remain open until August 27th, in which artists are to carry out residencies from October 11th, 2017 to November 10th, 2017. The residency is a group format, 3 artists in residence simultaneously. The main goal of this programme is to create a space to promote possible collaborations between residents and the local art scene, community and surroundings.
The Peninsula gallery is an artist-run space that devotes its attention to artistic practices as a platform for the development of collaborative projects.
The workspace is shared and the residence can generate a 3-week show or an open studio. The support, networks and creative environment offered by Galeria Peninsula Programme encourages professional/artistic development and international contacts.
The selected artists will have the opportunity to live and work in the city of Porto Alegre, the Southern most Brazilian capital and with easy access to the neighbors of Mercosur, especially Uruguay and Argentina. The selected artists will be able to join all the activities promoted by Galeria Peninsula (no charge applied), such as talks, meetings with curators, research groups, studio visits and exhibitions tours.
The Residency Program includes:
curatorial follow-up, with weekly one-to-one meetings to monitor the project under development
shared apartment with single room
studio visits and exhibitions tours
opportunity to propose and minister workshops
an open studio event or a group show of 3 weeks
