Malt Air (Denmark) > Open call for residencies

MALT AIR is a collaboration between Maltfabrikken, Kunsthal Aarhus and Danish Art Workshop, and the programme is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation. Together, they have created an attractive residency for professional international artists at a high artistic level, with a broad network across the Danish art scene.

The aim of MALT AIR is to help support and develop artists’ practice and research, and to encourage an exchange between Danish and international visual artists.

The purpose of the programme is to support the development of the resident’s artistic practice and to foster exchanges between the residing artist and the Danish contemporary visual arts scene. The resident artist will be given the opportunity to participate in networking activities, studio visits, meetings with relevant professional individuals and institutions, as well as to receive curatorial and peer feedback. MALT AIR wishes to support the artistic process and research phase by giving the artist time, space and opportunities for reflection and focus.
