Malt AIR > Residency for Visual Artists (Denmark)

Malt AIR is a new visual arts residency programme in Denmark. The residency is run in collaboration between The Danish Art Workshops, Kunsthal Aarhus and Maltfabrikken, and is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation. Malt AIR invites professional artists from all over the world to participate in a three-month visual arts residency programme at Maltfabrikken in Ebeltoft.

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.

The residency programme includes:

  • An individual studio, shared workshop facilities, and accommodation in a shared apartment situated at Maltfabrikken in Ebeltoft, Denmark.

  • A travel grant for an economy class flight to Denmark and return.

  • A monthly stipend of 1000€ to cover living expenses, local transport and cost of materials and production.

  • Tailormade activities aimed at supporting the development of the resident artist’s artistic practice, as well as facilitating network development with relevant artists, curators and art professionals in Denmark.

  • A peer programme. The resident will be matched with a member of peer groups and will receive individual professional feedback twice during the stay.

Applications are open to professional artists from abroad (non-Danish artists) who can document exhibition experience within significant professional contexts as well as former collaborations with curators on a professional level.

Professional artists from abroad can apply for a stay of three months at Malt AIR. The periods are:

  • 1 September – 31 November 2020.

  • 4 January – 31 March 2021.

  • 1 May – 31 July 2021.

Deadline: 23 February 2020
