Fundación Casa Wabi x ArtReview Residency Award 2019 (Mexico)
Fundación Casa Wabi and ArtReview are pleased to announce an open-call residency prize for artists wishing to stay in Oaxaca for the month of July 2019. Applications must detail a project that engages with or benefits the local community in Puerto Escondido, Mexico.
Fundación Casa Wabi is an interdisciplinary project whose mission is to promote the exchange of ideas, fostering an open and constructive dialogue between national and international artists in a variety of practices and disciplines. The foundation is based in Puerto Escondido, on the Pacific coast of Oaxaca, 800km south of Mexico City. Set between the mountains and the sea, the foundation and its grounds were designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Founded in 2014 by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi, its facilities include a multipurpose room, six studio-dorms and a 50-acre sculpture garden, as well as two recently opened pavilions: the Clay Pavilion by Alvaro Siza (Pritzker, 1995) and the Guayacan Pavilion by Mexican studio Ambrosi-Etchegaray.
Applications are welcome from all artists, irrespective of background, age, nationality or career. A maximum of two artists can apply together if they work collaboratively.
The prize includes:
Return international airfare to Puerto Escondido from your closest Aeromexico destination (sponsored by Aeromexico).
Lodging, studio space and three meals per day. Each residence offers a comfortable private bedroom, a multi-purpose room, library, WiFi and laundry service.
Up to $500 USD budget for your community project.
Deadline: 30 August 2018
