Call for Proposals 2014
- Last Updated: 05 February 2014
Deadline April 30, 2014
The Summer Sessions are short-term residencies for young artists organized by a network of cultural organizations all over the world.
The Summer Sessions offer a highly productive atmosphere with production support and expert feedback to jumpstart your professional art practice. The result is a pressure cooker in which you develop a project, from concept to presentable work, ready to show.
Are you an ambitious, early career artist, full of ideas and ready to realize your project this summer? Then apply by submitting a video, in which you briefly explain your project, the support you need and why you should be a part of the Summer Sessions.
Below are the results from the Summer Sessions since 2009.
"Memory of Form and Matter" (2013) is a sculpture series by Chris Sugrue exploring hybrid digital-physical forms. It combines algorithmically generated structures with digital simulations and animation.
The result of the Summer Session 2013 of Špela Petrič is a proposal for a larger project.
