Largo das Artes International Residency Programme

Largo das Artes International Residency Programme, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - Open call 1st half 2016!

Largo das Artes is now accepting submissions for its International Art Residency Programme, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, during the first half of 2016 (Jan - Jun). Residencies can last between one and three months.

Deadline is 10th June 2015

Largo das Artes International Art Residency Programme is designed for emerging artists wishing to immerse themselves in their work without the strains of everyday life. We provide them the space to explore practices, new ideas and materials; and to develop a project in Rio de Janeiro while receiving professional feedback and support. The selected artists have the chance to live and work in Rio de Janeiro and to participate in weekly activities such as talks, meetings with curators, exhibition tours and LargoLab. Participants are also encouraged to propose talks and workshops, and to learn about Rio's art and cultural scenes.

Largo das Artes International Art Residency Programme encourages professional development, artistic exchange and international contacts. The support, networks and creative environment offered by us provide an opportunity for artists to interact, learn, research and experiment with new works, materials, and concepts.

The central aspects of our Programme are:

• Studio at Largo das Artes

• Opportunity to propose workshops and talks

• Curatorial support through one-to-one meetings

• Weekly brainstorming sessions (LARGOLAB)

• Administrative and logistics support from Largo das Artes

• Open studio event at the end of the residency to introduce the visiting artist to the public
