INDEPENDENT AIRS. RESIDENCY. DEADLINE: OCTOBER 23, 2017

Dates:  November 20th 2017 to January 30th 2018

These residency periods outside of AiR Sefrou’s designed programs are focused towards artists from all disciplines to spend time contemplating, researching and producing work that needs attention. It may be that the artists are residing alone or with up to five others in the house. Cultures and material of work will be diverse.

The artists house (a stone’s throw away from AIR Sefrou’s office), is nestled in the heart of the ancient medina in Sefrou ( a market town positioned between the Middle Atlas Mountains and the Imperial Capital of Fez).

Our intimate team and growing community are here to support artists in their endeavours while introducing them to beneficial contacts and orientating them to local gatherings, if desired. Assistance to the artist and project facilitators are available upon prior request at a reasonable rate to help with the construction of works and further cultural exploration. Language interpretation and intercultural facilitation may be needed to help the artists in residence to understand the cultural landscape and manifest their vision:

We are open to holding presentations, exhibitions and workshops during the residency. This can be discussed once the intentions take shape.

Artists may get involved with Culture Vultures socially responsible program. Past events have included works such as a mural on a wall in the old city, planting green areas, public monuments and a contribution to our ‘Art in the Hospital’ initiative.

The minimum duration of a residency is three weeks.
This enables time to integrate into the culture as well as having days for comprehensive research and production.

3 weeks 550 euros

Photography Call. Galerie Sehnsucht. Deadline: Oct. 15, 2017

We call for entries from photographers and photographic artists with images that are dedicated to Sehnsucht. Our first exhibition will be on view with this title from November 1st, until December 10th, in our wonderful gallery at the Vijverhofstraat. It will show our selection from the works that were submitted in the call. We will be assisted in making this selection by Philippe Moroux. Philippe is an artist and photographer who lectures at the Academy of Art and Design St. Joost in Breda, Netherlands. He will be the guest curator for this exhibition.

sehnsucht (n) “the inconsolable longing in the human heart for we know not what”

‘Sehnsucht’ is a German word, but known to artists for centuries. Friedrich von Schelling, a German author and thinker, called Sehnsucht the “gravity of our emotions”. It explains the never ending search people set out to do, a searching in the world, in the hearts of other people, a search in themselves … but not knowing quite for certain what they are looking for, it’s more a feeling than a word. The old idea of the ‘Wanderer’, always restless and thinking that happiness is somewhere else, is closely connected to it. Sehnsucht can apply to small longings, intimate things, but just as well to great things and deeds that one wants to happen, or to the loneliness the individual looks for in the face of the sublime.
Popular as emotion in the arts from the days of the romantics in the 19th century, the word can be applied on work of photographers as different as Alfred Stieglitz, Bill Brandt, Sally Man or William Egglestone.

Your work can be anything from a straight photograph, to manipulated and even drawn photoshop projects, from alternative 19th century photographic techniques to modern, computer made images, graphic arts (etchings, litho’s…), as long as it’s based on one or more photographic images (no drawings or paintings) and you can show us how it looks by sending us a digital file.

The Luminary Residency Program. Deadline: Sept. 15, 2017

Applications Open for 2018 Residencies

As a leading artist-run and artist-centric space, The Luminary supports exceptional ideas and initiatives by providing dedicated time, considered collaborations and a supportive working environment through our Residency Program. The program is open to all artists, performers, curators and critics, but uniquely supports the research, development and presentation of work that utilizes innovative forms and unconventional structures such as alternative spaces and economies, publications and writing, archives, collaborations, artist-led projects and experimental institutional practices.

Though open to all applicants, particular attention for 2018 will be given to the theme of New Constitutions: Commoning the Institution. For the year, we invite proposals that rethink the relationship between the individual and the institution, asking questions such as: How does an artist, art writer, performer or curator reshape an institution’s practice, its publics, or its politics? How do economies of care and collaboration reshape the institution? How do we work past the individual economies of the art world and advance new conceptions of the commons? Participants may propose to alter our administrative procedures or physical environment; propose new uses of space or initiate other spaces within our own; rework our public relations or intervene within our online presence; or thoroughly reimagine how we relate with artists and circulate within the art world.

In 2018, The Luminary will accept twelve residents in three phases: April and May; June and July; and September and October. Residencies are two weeks up to six weeks in duration and each resident will receive stipends, spacious private accommodations, shared studio space, and connections with local artists, curators and galleries. Each resident is expected to work towards an exhibition, publication, institutional collaboration or other public program during their residency.

Applications are due September 15th, 2017 for residencies taking place throughout 2018.

To apply, please fill out the online application.
