Open Call: Colombia Residency

Grey Projects invites curators and artist-curators to apply for a month long residency program in Colombia. Curators and artist-curators interested in working with social and/or urban issues are strongly encouraged to create proposals for research. The residency takes place from 11 October to 8 November 2014. Airfare, accommodation, and a modest production fee will be provided.

This residency is an exchange programme between Grey Projects and Casa Tres Patios, and is a part of the Gift Exchange residency developed by Maja Ćirić and Biljana Ćirić. The Gift Exchange residency was started in order to complete the project Give More Than You Take by Pratchaya Phinthong. The residency explores the notion of ‘gift’ through cultural exchanges that hope to draw connection between different locations and productions, propelling future ongoing relationships.

Institutions participating in the Gift Exchange residency include: Times Museum (Guang Zhou, China), Grey Projects (Singapore), Dom Omladine in cooperation with Šumatovača AIR (Belgrade, Serbia), and Casa Tres Patios (C3P; Medellín, Colombia).
