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.
  • Anu Põder: Space for My Body
    Jan 3 – Jun 30, 2024
    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland

    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)

  • Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani: Dastgāh
    Jun 4 – Oct 31, 2024
    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.

  • Emily Ferguson: It Girl.
    Jun 1 – Jul 13, 2024
    Nicodim Gallery
    Los Angeles, USA

    What’s an It Girl? An image of an seraphic figure, glowing almost too bright to be looked at until the flashbulbs recharge and the cameras become visible. Glamoured, the viewer is still seeing spots and rubbing their eyes as the figure stalks out of view, no-one quite sure if she’s real or not, an apparition disappeared. An apparition, by its very nature is uncertain, the intention defined by the person who sees it – The angel becomes a monster if enough people describe it so. (more…)

  • ICON – O – STASYS
    May 31 – Nov 3, 2024
    Stasys Museum
    Panevėžys, Lithuania

    On this day… Stasys arrives back at his home village, Lepšiai… It all happens in May 2024… That’s when the Stasys Museum opens up to the public, a museum titled after him. This was never predicted – the future from there, a little village, in the house within a disorderly wooden structure, run down with dripping roofs, filled with bellowing, roaring farm animals… No fairy tales could be heard there… But just one hour’s walk away from Lepšiai, the white rectangular building stands proudly in the city centre (more…)

  • Marguerite Humeau: Orisons
    Jul 29, 2023 – Jun 30, 2025
    Black Cube
    Hooper, USA

    Marguerite Humeau’s Orisons is a subtle, 160-acre earthwork that transforms an unfarmable plot of land in Colorado’s San Luis Valley into a place of reverence, honoring its expansive history, existing ecosystem, and imaginable futures. The work consists of the land in its entirety, as well as a series of eighty-four kinetic and interactive sculptures that invoke the land’s histories and vast network of interrelations. (more…)

  • Polly Braden: Leaving Ukraine
    Mar 15 – Sep 15, 2024
    Foundling Museum
    London, UK

    Polly Braden: Leaving Ukraine is an intimate portrait of women, forced to leave their homes following the Russian invasion of Ukraine on 24 February 2022. In this new series of work we see the extraordinary journeys undertaken by mothers, daughters, teenagers and babies in arms. Since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, Polly Braden has used her camera to document the lives of women and children unexpectedly scattered across Europe.
