Kintai Arts is announcing an Open Call for a month-long residency “Hello, Can You Hear Me? / We will meet again!”. This international multidisciplinary residency invites artists and curators to look for new methods of representation and communication during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Covid-19 pandemic has shuttered the doors of museums, galleries, festivals and art fairs; but it also provided an opportunity for the artists and curators to think about the alternative methods of showcasing work and representation, by using such technologies as VR and AR, getting involved with the IT sector, and thus enabling larger audiences to access art. From virtual exhibitions and online viewing rooms to broadcasting, artists are invited to rethink the role of institutions in their practice, to perhaps expand their audiences, and to reimagine their methods of representation and communication by using online tools.
In this process oriented residency, artists are invited to freely interpret the gallery space and to transform it into a “scene”, a platform, an open studio or a playground, and to share the creative processes with their virtual audiences. Therefore, we are inviting artists, curators and researchers willing to develop open and live discussions, artistic scenarios, creative workshops and creative presentations.
Applicants, willing to apply for this Open Call, are invited to submit their Bio or CV, a portfolio with work samples, and a motivational letter that includes a project proposal, by March 15, 2021, by filling out an online registration form on our website. Selected candidates will be informed shortly after the application deadline, and no later than March 26.
The duration of the residency is one month: April 1 – May 1, 2021.
Deadline: Saturday 2 January 2021 at 23:00h
