April 1 - December 31, 2018
The ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency program provides opportunities for international artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, collaborate with the local arts community, and create special projects in St. Petersburg, Russia. Each month residency is individually designed to enable visiting artists and curators to learn about the Russian arts community, develop their own work, and share information about their work and other cultures with local audiences.
The ArtsLink Back Apartment invites artists and curators interested in learning about contemporary art in Russia and building relationships with the local arts community. Though preference is given to artists and curators working in the fields of socially engaged art and public art, artists working in other fields are also welcome to apply.
CEC ArtsLink currently funds residencies by artists and curators from the United States. CEC ArtsLink will provide international travel, visa support (if needed), accommodation, and per diem. Artists from other countries are welcome to apply, but will need to seek financial support to cover their expenses. CEC ArtsLink will provide lodging at the residency space.
Interested artists and curators can apply by completing the on-line application form. Applications will be available online from October 23 and accepted until December 15, 2017 (for residencies between April 1 and December 31, 2018, the residency is closed in August).
Duration of the Residency for artists is 1 month, and for curators is 7-10 days. Back Apartment Residency Awards will be announced by February 1, 2018.
The CEC ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency program is funded by the Kettering Family Philanthropies and Trust for Mutual Understanding
