Rejmyre Art LAB Artist Residency (Sweden)

Call for Applications

Rejmyre Art LAB announces a two-year residency program, beginning with an initial research visit in 2013 and culminating with a follow-up residency and public project in 2014.

Application deadline is June 20.

Rejmyre Art LAB is an artist-run organization and a long-term, place-based research project that creates spaces for making, reflection and intensive exchange. Activities include an international artist residency program, intensive post-graduate student workshops, a platform for experimental and conceptual glass projects in the Reijmyre Glasbruk, public seminars and an annual program of installations and interventions in and around the town of Rejmyre.

Rejmyre Art LAB's residency program is run and constructed by artists in response to their own needs and changing modes of production. In the past Rejmyre Art LAB has referred to their residencies as 'hand built' to connote the sense of responsibility each resident takes for shaping the structure of the residency itself.

While many residency programs are rooted in notions of isolation, their emphasis is placed on engaging the local context of each residency as fuel and material for artistic development. Art LAB aims to support a wide range of contemporary artistic processes. Participants in theprogram create conceptual propositions, objects, and temporal works situated in public and private spaces. To support this range of work, they craft and maintain a network of local connections to facilitate social access and a mix of public and private studio spaces.

To apply, send a short bio, a one-paragraph statement of interest, and a link to work samples to
Rejmyre Art LAB, through a collaboration with IASPIS [International Artist Studio Program in Sweden], provides selected artists with: RT travel from home country; accommodation; stipend for the residency period; funding for a prior research visit.
