Van Eyck residency call 2018


Artists, designers, curators, photographers, (landscape) architects, writers, and critics are invited to apply for a residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht, Netherlands for 6 up to 12 months in 2019.

Every applicant shares our belief that insight comes through exchange with other: insight in the meaning of things, in your own practice, in the (art) world. Apply if you need the time and space that is needed to develop your talents, to discover as yet unexplored perspectives and delve into deeper layers of yourself. The multiform character of the Van Eyck appeals to the artistic and intellectual versatility of the participants and enables them to deepen and ramify their talents and skills in the short and long run. The work of the participants is the effect and the result of various interlinked processes. It especially testifies to an art practice that is investigative and committed.

The Van Eyck in Maastricht (NL) is an international, multidisciplinary institute for talent development that offers time and space to develop your own projects in an inspiring, multiform working environment.

The Van Eyck offers: your own studio; studio visits by (guest) advisors; well-equipped Labs (print, photography/new media, wood, metal, a library and a lab for nature research); collaborative projects with civic partners and partners from science and the arts; a public programme of events, talks, workshops, symposia and exhibitions.

A residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie varies between 6–12 months. A residency can start from April to September 2019. The starting date of your residency is determined by the Van Eyck.
— 32 up to 35 spots are available each year.
— Participants are generally between 22–41 years of age.
— Artists who previously have been in resident at another post academic institute (Rijksakademie, De Ateliers) in the Netherlands, cannot apply for a work period at the Van Eyck.
