The two successful candidates will reside and exhibit in Bucharest within two time-frames: August-September, 2015, and October-November, 2015.
The two selected artists are encouraged to experiment and produce new works based on the concepts and directions discussed with the curator. At the end of the residency period, each of the two selected artists will be displaying her/ his works in an exhibition. The material and financial support for artistic production is limited, but available.
The “Plantelor 58 Artistic Residency” benefits from a €14000 grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants. The aim of the project is to offer the possibility for the artists to engage in an active dialogue and to understand the strengths and vulnerabilities of the european cultural system, as well as to establish long-term collaborations with cultural agents.
