Research residences in Madrid - open call for European arts professionals
Hablar en Arte launches an open call to select three european art professionals (curators, cultural managers, journalists, ...) for three-week-residencies in Madrid. They consist of a tailor-made tour, designed to meet the specific Spanish and Madrid-based contemporary artists, that best match with specific interests of each resident.
During their stay in Spain, the residents will be accompagnied and supported by local curators and cultural managers and are invited to give a short public conference at Matadero Madrid in which they present themselves, their organization and their project to the local art community.
Back in their home-countries, the residents will develop a cultural project that includes artists and art-projects they have come to know during their stay in Spain. Each of the residencies will have a duration of three weeks. Each applicant can choose among the following months:
• August 2012
• September 2012
• October 2012
The residency covers the use of a flat in the neighbourhood of Legazpi, in the surroundings of Matadero Madrid and the travel cost (inbound and outbound) to the European country of residence. Each resident receives 500 Euros to cover other travels and daily expenses.
The contest is open to all European art professionals that do not live and work in Spain.
The open call seeks especially for participants who do not yet have a consolidated international career, as one of the primary goals of Curators’ Network is to gather art-professionals who are still not well known in a larger European context.
Deadline to submit applications: 25 May.
