Casino Luxembourg contemporary art forum announces the call for its 2011 international residency programme.  Two ten week residencies are offered to individual artists or artists collectives.

In 2011, Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain will host the next edition of project room @ aquarium, an artist-in-residency programme based in the so-called “Aquarium”, a 175 sqm steel and glass pavilion. This international residency programme, while welcoming proposals taking full advantage of the place’s very specific architecture, is encouraging applications aiming to stimulate exchange and debate in relation with the local context and socio-cultural issues in Luxembourg.

project room @ aquarium forms an integral part of the Casino Luxembourg’s agenda of exhibitions and events. Furthermore to the work that the participants are asked to realise during their stay in Luxembourg, they are expected to participate in the activities of Casino Luxembourg on specific occasions to be defined with the Casino team. Their project will be exhibited over a period of two months at the end of the residency and documented in a publication.

Eligibility: The residency is open to all individuals or artists’ collectives wishing to develop their practice in a professional context by creating new work. Applicants are free to choose their means of artistic expression but must give documented proof of at least three years’ work and exhibition practice and not be older than 40 years. In order to facilitate communication with the local scene, participants should be fluent in either English, French or German. All applicants must hold a valid visa for the duration of the residency.

Residency periods:

  • Spring residency: from 16 May to 8 July 2011 | exhibition from 9 July to 11 September 2011

  • Fall residency: from 5 September to 28 October 2011 | exhibition from 29 October 2011 to 8 January 2012

Budget: 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 10,000. Participants will be accommodated in a centrally located, self-sufficient flat at Centre Culturel de Rencontres Abbaye de Neumünster in Luxembourg city. Casino Luxembourg will take over the artist’s travel costs to and from Luxemburg and will provide a bulk sum of EUR 1,800 toward general expenses, to be paid in four instalments, the first of which will be made upon arrival. At the end of the residency, participants will receive an artist fee of EUR 1,500.
