Open Call Artist Residency

The International Institute of Contemporary Art and Theory is an artist-run initiative.

Description of residency program
The International Institute of Contemporary Art and Theory is an arts organization founded on the belief that international representation is key to fostering a relevant and informed dialogue about art, design, and theory. To further this mission, IICAT supports a publication on the arts, an international Artist-In-Residency opportunity, and a gallery in partnership with the Archive Space Project.

The Seaside Residency program overlooks the Black Sea in the charming, coastal town of Mangalia, Romania. The residency hosts international scholars, professionals, and students who are interested in art theory, art history, and art making in order to foster critical dialogue, professional networking, and a focused studio practice for participants.

Duration of residency
Residencies can be scheduled in 2-week increments year round but accommodations can be made if a shorter or longer stay better suits your needs.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
 
- We are looking for emerging and mid-career artist and academics looking for time and space to foster creative projects.

- Our ideal candidate is someone up for an adventure, who is flexible and excited about sharing a living and studio space with a culturally diverse group of artists with differing backgrounds, beliefs, and interests; the ideal candidate sees this as an opportunity to spark 
critical dialogue that will challenge their art practice. 

- We pride ourselves on being discipline-independent, meaning your chosen discipline is irrelevant to the selection process as we select candidates on 
quality of work and fit with other candidates 

- Disciplines that are particularly suited for this residency include those related to Concept & Theory, Painting, Philosophy, Poetry, Printmaking, Sculpture, Visual Arts, Writing and more. Other disciplines are welcome but 
be aware that Mangalia is a small sea town, and any specialized art supplies or equipment must be brought by the artist or the artist must arrange to have it shipped.

- a 24/7 shared studio space with great natural light and ocean views
