PROPOSE AN INTERNATIONAL ARTIST FOR A RESIDENCY IN GOTHENBURG IN
Two international artists are invited to Gothenburg each year for a three month residency through IASPIS, The Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s International Programme for Visual and Applied Artists. ( www.iaspis.se)
The aim of the residency is to promote and provide support for exchange between international artists and local Gothenburg artists, institutions and other art initiatives.
Iaspis collaborates with a local group in Gothenburg. Twice a year the Iaspis-group in Gothenburg collects and processes local proposals which they present to a decision making board at The Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
The Iaspis-group in Gothenburg now welcomes proposals for international visual artists to be invited for a residency scheduled between March – May 2020.
The selected artist will have access to a guest studio at Konstepidemin, which also serves as living quarters. The artist will receive a stipend of 15 000 SEK/month, and Iaspis will also cover the travel expenses to and from Gothenburg. The stipend is not remuneration for work but a tax-free stipend given for artistic excellence.
Proposals can be made by Gothenburg-based artists, institutions and other art initiatives. Please note that international artists cannot propose themselves to be invited to the residency.
Konstepidemin’s residency programme and the local Iaspis-group will do their best to support the visiting artist to have a valuable exchange with the city and the local art
