Pauline Maure, The Unsung Song of the Unhung Hangman / 2023 SÍM Resident
SÍM Residency 2024
Deadline January 2, 2024
SÍM / Samband Íslenskra Myndlistarmanna
Reykjavík, Iceland

The SÍM Residency is an international self-directed and self-funded artist-in-residence programme in Reykjavík, Iceland. The main objective of the residency is to provide a venue for international artists and cultural practitioners to take part in the Icelandic art scene, thereby creating a broader context within which local and international artists can experience their own work.

The SÍM Residency seeks to promote an environment of reflection, research, study, and play by providing artists and researchers with a working environment that supports the artistic process.

Artists can stay for one to three months and are accepted based on their art/research project proposal, CV, and work examples. Candidates can apply only if they have a BA or higher education degree. We make exemptions for self-thought artists presenting extended CVs and art/research projects, as it is up to the Expert group to decide on selecting artists.

The residency program curates two public events each month: Artist Talk with Community Dinner and Open Studios.  Additionally, two private meetings with all participants are held each month. Part of the residency program is media and press releases to highlight and present participating artists in the residency program. All completed residency art/research projects are being published on the SÍM Residency website.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
