Open Call for Residency at HMK

Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) is an artist-in-residence, exhibition space and cinema for contemporary visual art in the city centre of Hoorn; a historic town 40 kilometres north of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. HMK is a non-profit organization that aims to assist young as well as more established artists from all over the world in the production of new work and promote exchanges between national and international artists, cultural institutions and the public. The studio/exhibition space of HMK is located in an early 15th century chapel, surrounded by a semi-private courtyard. This beautifully tranquil and spacious working environment offers the artists-in-residence a unique space for reflection, experimentation and production. HMK places the artist at the centre of its activities, and stimulates risk-taking as a key element of artistic development. The public programme of exhibitions, screenings, lectures, workshops and publications, aims to challenge perceptions of what constitutes contemporary art, and bring the audience closer to the practice that motivates it.

Once or twice a year HMK sends out an open call for artists, writers, curators and researchers (individuals or groups) to hand in a proposal for a residency period. A residency typically lasts for one or two months. During a stay in our guesthouse, residents are invited to develop, execute and present new work in the chapel/exhibition space, or research and develop a specific project culminating in an event, exhibition, presentation or publication. The Netherlands is a small country that is easy to navigate by train, and we  stimulate artists to also use the residency as an opportunity to explore other places, museums and project spaces.
