Casino Luxembourg | artist residency in public space
Casino Luxembourg announces open call for the international artist-in-residence programme for a residency in the public space, inviting a direct confrontation between art and the public in shared common space. Call for 2017 residencies, open to individual and collective artists, with a first visit to Luxembourg in autumn 2016 to visit public spaces.
Deadline for entries: 16 February 2016
In 2015, Casino Luxembourg's artist-in-residence programme moved out from the circumscribed exhibition space into Luxembourg's open public space aiming at a direct confrontation between art - social, committed, provocative, surprising, unusual, playful, interactive - and the public at large in a shared common space.
In 2017, Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain will host the second edition of its international residence programme in the public space.
The residence programme is designed so as to provide a maximum flexibility for the working artist and to offer the best possible conditions with regard to the realisation of each project. To get acquainted with Luxembourg's public space, a first visit of Luxembourg will be scheduled in autumn 2016 for the laureate. Subsequently to this visit, the laureate will be requested to develop a first outline of his/her project for Luxembourg. The residence period will be fixed according to the very specific needs of the project (maximum of 12 weeks).
The residence progamme is open to all individual artists or collectives wishing to develop their practice in a professional context by creating a new work. Applicants are free to choose their means of artistic expression but must have accomplished a master degree in arts (or equivalent) by the beginning of the residence, or, for non-degree holders, must give documented proof of at least a three-year work and exhibition practice. Participants should be fluent in either English, French or German. All applicants must hold a valid visa for the duration of the residence.
Casino Luxembourg will provide financial and technical support and will be in charge of implementing the artist's project to a maximum cost of EUR 15,000. The participant will be accommodated in a centrally located, self-sufficient flat in Luxembourg city. Casino Luxembourg will take over the artist's travel costs to and from Luxembourg and will pay 500 EUR for 14 days towards general expenses. The participants will receive an artist fee of EUR 2,500 that will be paid at the end of the residence.
