Warp Contemporary Art Platform Call for Residency ApplicationsSunday, May 13th, 2012 Categories: Art Residencies, Updates
For one week (21–25 August) a group of about 25 artists will be given the opportunity to join the Artist Village, organised in C-mine (Genk, Belgium), neighboring Manifesta 9. This gathering, where young artists from all over the world discuss their artwork with professionals of the international art scene, has by now become a WARP tradition.
The 25 selected artists under age 35 will have a captivating opportunity to reflect on their art in a professional environment. The interaction with curators, art critics, museum directors, collectors, and established artists from New York to Beijing and from Toronto to Cape Town, as well as with other participating artists, is a unique starting point to further develop their professional art career. The evening activities, including dinners, lectures, and concerts, will be open to everyone who would like to meet with the artists and commentators.
On 25 August, a Meet & Greet Day will be organised for young artists from Limburg and the Euregion Maas-Rhine (the three-nation region around Liège, Maastricht, and Aachen), in parallel to the WARP Artist Village. We will end this last day with an astounding WARP-ART-PARTY and the development of a true tent village.
Artists under age 35 can submit their portfolio until 8 June 2012.
