SEA FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP | OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS CURATORS AND WRITERS

OPEN CALL
SEA Foundation’s invites applicants for its 2019/2020 residency program
Two fellowships available.

ABOUT
Since its inception in 2016, the SEA Fellowship has pioneered an individual model and developed into a significant platform for artistic professional advancement. Application is open to visual artists, curators and art theorists/writers in all stages of their career.

RESIDENCY
The residencies are designed for the 21st-century art professional – visual artists, curators and art theorists/writers – whose work and life demands both a rigorous engagement as well as an urgency to propel progress. We believe that the contemporary art practice requires both flexibility as well as stability, a self-directed approach, and a guided environment. Based on a project proposal and developmental questions, we offer a tailor-made programme in a discursive setting and in doing so fulfil a guiding – and a bridging function. The inclusive character lies within the trinity of hospitality, the ‘art & design infuse’ house, and the residencies & presentations. Bespoke mentoring and training up to 4 hours per week are included in the program.
Duration: Up to 3 months

AIMS
To support the production of art and the theory of art
To evoke discourse on art and art practices within a local and global context
To promote and relay critical and researched based production of art
To facilitate exchange between art intermediaries and artists, creating an expert network

SEEKING
We seek for candidates who envision a solid plan for development and production during their fellowship period and who are willing to participate within the rhythm, the open participative atmosphere and the artistic challenge which propels our artist-led institute. The SEA Foundation’s individual shaped residency program is limited to 8 residents per year.
