FUSION AIR // Winter Residency at Fusion Art Gallery Turin

International art residency programme FUSION AIR // Turin, Italy November 2015/February 2016

A 1 to 3 month studio residency program that focuses on creative practice development for artists working across all disciplines, the FUSION AIR program offers space for experimentation and dialogue with peers and arts professionals.
The FUSION AIR international residency program offers professional artists the opportunity to develop their own research without any "pre-organised" pressure. We are not going to ask you to submit any special "project" as our board of curators is undoubtedly capable of evaluating an artist's practice by reviewing his/her specific path through his/her own website.  An artist's residency is, first of all, a place to learn, absorb,  and experience. Our goal is to provide artists "A Room Of Their Own" abroad, a relevant place without any kind of performance anxiety. At the end of your stay, each artist will be free to decide whether to produce a show, a presentation, or a documentation. We are excited about the work-in-progress evolution of our artists' work. From the very moment the artist is selected, we will give him/her all our support and trust!

For further information about  how the application process works, please read the application guidelines and note that applications will only be considered if they are complete, on time, and adhere to all guidelines. A complete application includes complete submission of the online application by the deadline.
