SEA Foundation invites visual artists, art critics and curators to apply for a residency in 2017. Candidates can apply for one 3-month term, either April–June or September–November 2017. With its AiR program, which affords opportunities for experimentation to try out new ideas, practices and strategies, SEA Foundation promotes internationally relevant artistic production, research and discussion in the Tilburg region, in the south of the Netherlands.
The aims of the residency are to support the production of art and the theory of art; to evoke discourse on art and art practices within a local and global context; to promote and relay critical and researched-based production of art; and to facilitate exchange between art intermediaries and artists, creating an expert network.
SEA Foundation will cover studio and private living quarters, mentoring and training, use of workshop and equipment, use of art-related library, interaction with local peers and other residents, office facilities and printers, PR activities and even a bike on loan.
Artists will receive a stipend of 200 EUR per week and a production budget of 1500 EUR for project costs. All travel and other personal expenses must be covered by the resident.
SEA Foundation hosts residencies for the benefit of Curatorial Practice, Visual Arts, and Writing. To shape SEA Foundation’s expanded residency programme further an Advisory Committee has been brought together. This committee is composed of artists, critics, and curators who continuously push the boundaries of their fields. In their advisory capacity, the experts share knowledge on development and initiate introductions that benefit both the residents and the programme. This is how we keep SEA Foundation abreast of interesting developments in the field of contemporary art.
Deadline: Mar. 14, 2017 (noon)
