Petrohradská kolektiv announces an open call for artists to participate in an international program Artist in Residence for the year 2021.
The residence program is intended for active artists, creators, and theoreticians, who desire independence and want space and technical support for working on their projects. That’s what the Petrohradská kolektiv AiR program offers in the heart of a multi-genre cultural center in Prague. The goal of the program is creating an open platform for international artistic dialogue, the interconnection of different cultures, and support for emerging artists working with diverse media.
Residence is an opportunity for independent professional development, artistic exchange, networking, and experiments. Since accommodation and a studio are included, we prefer applicants from outside of Prague.
The resulting outputs of the residences will be showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery at Petrohradská kolektiv complex. The main theme of the exhibition program of the gallery for 2021 is Chaos, therefore we ask the applicants to take this into account when applying with their projects.
Who are we looking for?
Residence is intended for creators with an interest in creative sharing and participation in the field of Prague contemporary art scene.
Prospective residents should introduce us concrete projects that would be realized within their stay in Prague. The final result of the residence is traditionally showcased in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery, which is part of the Petrohradská kolektiv complex. Anyway, the form of the output can be adapted according to each project’s nature.
What do we offer?
Accommodation and a studio in the Petrohradská kolektiv complex
Covering the travel and material costs (up to 200€)
Technical support and consultation
Exhibition in Jedna Dva Tři Gallery (or an alternative)
Free entrance to all the events organized by Petrohradská kolektiv
The original idea behind Petrohradská kolektiv was to make a community space for creativity and art practice, where there’s a place for both efficient working and pleasant relaxing, where you can focus on your own projects and then take a break without the necessity of leaving the building.
Within the AiR we provide technical support, promotion, and curatorial assistance. Travel and material costs are covered up to a maximum of 200€.
We know that a convenient working environment is fundamental, therefore within the residence we provide a shared studio with a workshop with basic equipment with an area of 60 square meters, a photo/video studio, and a recording studio. Each project requires different technical equipment, therefore the technology needed is consulted with each resident individually.
Each resident gets a private room in a 3-room apartment with a common area, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of the Petrohradská kolektiv building.
Petrohradská kolektiv organizes many cultural events within its complex. All of the selected residents get to attend these events for free.
Within the residential program, which works in parallel with these events, there’s an opportunity of collaboration with other artists and mentors from different cultural backgrounds. Thanks to that, residents can actively participate in various programs of Petrohradská kolektiv.
