Lilith Performance Studio > Open call for new major visual arts performances (Sweden)

Lilith Performance Studio is a non-profit arts organization and an independent arena for visual art performance. The Studio initiates new exceptional visual art performances by inviting visual artists from around the world, some of whom have never worked live before.

Each year, selected artists are given the unique opportunity to realize and present a new large-scale performance on site in the studio in Malmo or elsewhere in the city, in close collaboration with the studio.

The invited artists get a great chance to explore their own artistic expression and to work in a larger scale including all aspects in creating a new art work.
Lilith selects artists with a distinctively individual artistic mode of expression and integrity when it comes to idea as well as method, artists that also share an interest in exploring their own work in relation to the studio as an experimental site. The artists are encouraged to expand their artistic vision through the use of live performance, resulting in unique productions.

During a 4-8 weeks long production period in Malmo the artists are given the opportunity to focus on all the parts of a live piece: site, time, staging, participants and audience.

The selected artists to Lilith’s Commission program will receive significant financial and production support to experiment and realize innovative new works, in close collaboration with the studio from conceptualization to presentation.
Lilith Commission will include a budget for production, research and development, artist fee, accommodation and travel expenses.

Who can apply? Artist from all over the world who already use live elements in their work and those who are experimenting with performance for the first time are welcome to apply.
The organisers accept applications from emerging, mid-career and established artists working in the visual art field.

Deadline: 1 May 2017
