The Romanian Association of Contemporary Art (ARAC) in Bucharest, Romania is offering a residency opportunity for an artist to freely develop artworks for an exhibition in Bucharest.

ARAC Art & Residency aims to introduce international artists and curators to the Romanian cultural environment. During its two-year programme, which started in 2020, the project features artistic residencies, exhibitions, video and performance focused events and talks.

The themes of this year’s residency and of the programme at large, are focused on climate change, migration and technology development. Applicants are invited to make project proposals on one of these three main themes.

The residency is opened to artists of any age, sex, race or nationality, working in any medium of contemporary art. The successful candidate is expected to reside and work in Bucharest for six weeks, October – November 2021. At the end of the artistic residency period, the artist is expected to show the works produced during the residency in an exhibition at Anca Poterasu Gallery with the newly produced works, and to present the project in an Insomnia Night event.

ARAC covers:

  • Private accommodation in a 25m2 furnished room, with wifi, private bathroom and kitchen space.
  • A personal stipend of approximately 1900 EUR (9350 RON) for living expenses and travel, meaning that the 2-way airfare from city of origin to Bucharest is included in this fee.
