Objective of the Call
The objective of this yearly call is to award a production residency for the completion of a project by artists who are either Spanish or legally resident in Spain and who were born in 1975 or later.
This residence will have a maximum duration of two months (between April and June 2015), during which the artist will be provided with accommodation and a work space. The maximum project budget will be €10,000 gross – €2,000 for fees and a production fund of €8,000 – as well as access to all of LABoral’s technical and human resources.
The results from the residency will be brought to fruition in an exhibition at LABoral which will take place at the Galería de exposiciones [Exhibitions Gallery] (See plans and images here) from June to September 2015.
DKV will have the right to acquire the resulting work from the residency, if its committee so decides, for an amount not exceeding 8,000 euros.
DKV Seguros and LABoral will deal with and facilitate the travelling of the exhibit to other spaces in Spain.
