Deadline : February 15, 2014
This program offers research-creation assistance to local and international artists and artist collectives for the creation of digital arts, installation and performance projects. The residency provides space and equipment at Rustines|Lab for the production of a three(3)- to six(6)-week researchcreation project. A curator, critic or theoretician will be invited to collaborate with the artist-in-residence to draft a text on the research-creation project or on the artist’s creative process.
Residencies are privileged moments for reflection and creativity in the evolution of an artist’s practice. This program seeks to offer the artists a space of encounter to support the development of a creative process. Meeting with the artist and drafting of a text, an author will participate in the process and in the artist’s reflection on his or her work.
