Research, experimentation, support and open studio
Program aimed at artists who want to focus on their poetic production and develop a site-specific project at Casa Belgrado. Ideal for flexible proposals that require the accompaniment of a menthor for the development of poetic production.
The program proposes accommodation in our house, enhancing the stay with daily exchanges with other artists who inhabit the space in a coexistence that, although communal, allows the necessary privacy for the creative process and the support of a menthor according to the project proposal and an exhibition in La Vitrina.
We welcome artists from all disciplines and their crosses, having a particular interest in projects linked to themes they work on: border, migration, territory, community, history, heritage and margin; without excluding projects linked to any other subject.
Experimentation and work spaces:
2 rooms of 6×6 and 8×6 meters respectively, both with parquet flooring and high ceilings.
Free use of terrace of more than 300m2. Ideal for developing projects with projections, body practices and large format pieces.
Shared workshop space in the La Vitrina de Belgrado.
A menthor, either an artist or a curator, will collaborate with the artist conceptually and technically accompanying the materialization of the project, exchanging ideas and encouraging the development of artistic production.
During the residency period, the Belgrade team will also attend to the basic technical demands for the development of creative projects, providing access to all the equipment and tools available in the residency: multimedia equipment such as projector, screen, sound, etc.
In first person.
There will be a presentation of the artist with the Belgrade team: professional career, previous work and approach to the project to be carried out during the residency.
Walk a nap
The proposal consists of taking a walk along the edges of Balvanera.
Visit ateliers and art spaces
During the residency period, visits will be made to other artists’ ateliers and different art spaces and galleries in the city.
Throughout the residency, Belgrade is responsible for promoting the artist’s work through social media posts, postings on our website, and publicity posters. This program includes an audiovisual record of the work process at Casa Belgrado and a photographic record of the exhibition.
At the end of the residency «Side A» program, there will be an exhibition at «La Vitrina de Belgrado». For two weeks and accompanied by the curator, you will be able to exhibit your work and activate the exhibition to the public; neighbors, local artists, and agents of the art scene.
Casa Belgrado is an independent and self-managed art space, integrated by a team of Latin American managers and artists from different disciplines.
The cost of the residency is intended to cover accommodation, production, diffusion, and realization of the artistic project.
Monthly fee: $1300 usd.
Any material necessary for the development of the project that is not available at the residency must be provided and assumed by the artist.
We accompany artists interested in processing their own funds through letters of invitation and/or any other material required for the management of scholarships, grants, public or private financial support, and/or institutional aid to cover the participation fee.
