OPEN CALL NOVEMBER 2018
HANGAR ART RESIDENCY LISBON – PORTUGAL
The Residency program at Hangar encourages dialogue, exchange and experimentation.
The program is non-prescriptive and process-based, allowing visiting artists to develop projects in response to their new environment, or to conduct research benefiting from Lisbon´s resources.
The Residencies Program is firmly established in the Lisbon arts scene, promoting diverse cultures and practices through international and experimental projects.
Hangar develops several International Residency Programs that give non-resident artists in Portugal or Lisbon the opportunity to live and work in Lisbon for a period of one month to three months (longer periods can be arranged.) The program aims to facilitate the international exchange and the exchange of ideas through artistic practice in the areas of visual arts, performance, photography and video.
Through strategic partnerships in the international art world and institutions linked to cultural production and artistic research in various countries, mainly through the Triangle Network, Hangar program aims to strengthen the existing exchange between Portugal, Europe, Africa and South America
Duration of Residency: 1 to 2 months
Disciplines, work equipment and assistance:
HANGAR invites artists who practice the visual arts, with special focus on those who work in filmmaking, photography and performance. The special equipment HANGAR provides includes: D.Y.A. tools, studio space, photo laboratory, library and access to the Internet.
Hangar offers 7 living and work studios for residency in a private format. There are 4 studios with private bathroom and kitchenette facilities and 3 private studios that have a co-working format with shared kitchen and WC facilities.
The accommodation and studio are located within the same space. Artists also have access to shared studio space, which is to be used in a co-working format.
Fees and Support:
Artists are expected to pay for their expenses. This includes studio space and accommodation, which are both in-situ at the gallery. Costs start from €600.00/month to €700.00/month.
Expectations towards the Artist:
Artists are expected to partake in Artist Talks, Workshops and Open Studio events at Hangar. This is a valuable opportunity for artists to promote and raise awareness about their work, because it gives them the chance to create a dialogue of exchange between themselves and the diverse audiences that attend the events, thus working to raise their artist profile.
