Subversion Matters Art Residency 2024
Subversion Matters / Art Residency 2024
Deadline February 29, 2024
Isla de Crear
Úbeda, Spain

Isla de Crear is a creative centre, combining a range of different disciplines in order to explore creating and crafting in a new method, away from commercial constraints or industry guidelines, based on the principles of the Fantasism manifesto. The centre is located in Úbeda, in the Jaén region of Andalusia, southern Spain, where the sun is out 300 days of the year, in the middle of the Sea of Olives, with no neighbours for miles, but we are by a main road (so it can get noisy sometimes), just outside Úbeda, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to a buzzing community of artisan craftspeople and a lot of cultural events.

For our new call-out, we are looking for artists, craftspeople, thinkers and creatives from all different fields to explore the theme: SUBVERSION MATTERS. We are purposefully keeping the theme as broad as possible, and encourage you to think as tangentially as possible.

Duration of residency:
4 weeks / 6 weeks / 8 weeks
We have 5 starting dates:
14 April (4, 6, 8 weeks)
28 April (4 and 6 weeks only) 12 May (4 weeks only)
18 August (4 or 6 weeks only) 1 September (4 weeks only)
In your application please state which is your preferred starting date and if you would like to do 4, 6 or 8 weeks.

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.

    Berlinische Galerie
    Berlin, Germany

    Nasan Tur explores the political and social conditions that define our times. His works are experimental arrangements that draw attention to ideologies, social norms and behavioural codes and expand our options for individual action. To this end, he examines statements, gestures and images found in the media or in the public space and distils them into miniatures reflecting current social crises and discourse. (more…)
