Application deadline: 1 January 2023
Residency Duration: 29 January - 29 April 2024
Application 003 is a process oriented residency, which takes a critical approach to art making, research and production. This residency provides mentorship, discussion, critique, and avenues to explore techniques, concepts, ideas and collaborations.
This experience is set to widen possibilities and potential for artists, encourage engagement with peers and take the artists’ careers to the next level.
Alongside the personal mentorship and discussion, as well as the collaborative engagements with the other residents, the residency will provide a range of learning opportunities for participants. These learning opportunities include, but are not limited to, a selection of workshops, talks, courses, exhibition and cultural visits, all of which will facilitate research into contemporary art, and exploring constructive critique, as well as the integrity of differences despite shared experiences.
Through the residency, participants will also be able to examine the legacy of global art history and the current state of the world. Regular group discussions would be encouraged and facilitated through informal and formal meetings and gatherings. Participating artists need to be open to sharing ideas and receiving feedback through discussion, and be open to other possibilities and directions in their work.
Through this experience, participating artists will gain motivation, expand their knowledge and critical perspectives. The residency will examine complex personal and ethical questions about their hybridity and local knowledge, while exposing them to their own ways of seeing.
The residency presents a 12-week, intensive and demanding programme, which will require strong commitment and dedication from the participating artists. Applicants acknowledge that by taking part in this residency, they undertake the responsibility to see it through, and understand the demanding nature of the programme.
Participating artists will receive individual studio space, in our residency studio compound, and use the studio for research, discussion, project development, and production, with support from Al Riwaq. Studio set-up and resources will be provided by Al Riwaq.
Interested applicants must present a project idea that they intend to work on during the residency. This can be a new idea, or a project that is in the research phase, or an ongoing project. Al Riwaq understands that this is not a final idea or project, and that it can change in concept and direction through and during the residency.
