We here at SIILK GALLERY are looking for artists from all walks of life around the world for our 2022 residency program. We have ran Siilk as a photography specific gallery up until now. As we have plans to open a second space for all creative practices we are opening up the residency side of our space for 2022 to all artists to reside with us in Athens, Greece and create new works to displayed at our gallery second floor space and new space in 2022.
With the success of our current gallery throughout 2019/20 we launched a new exhibition space in 2021 in the Athens artists quarter, Metaxourgeio. This has given us the opportunity to transform the upper spaces above the gallery into a residency space, self contained studio and exhibition space.
The residency will consist of a 4 week running program with accommodation where you can live and work from the Siilk Building in Athens, Greece. Use the mezzanine level of the gallery for a show for the 4 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever ways you want.
At the end of each 4 weeks there will be an opening night showcasing the works produced in that time featured at the main Silk Gallery space for an additional 4 weeks. Your works will also be featured in our online gallery for the new website of our mother gallery - www.siilkgallery.com. We will also do a feature / interview with you leading up to the residency.
We can supply any documents to accompany any external funding sources the artists may apply for.
