ACE KIBLA, Maribor, Slovenia – Call for X-OP residency
Association for Culture and Education KIBLA (ACE KIBLA), Maribor, Slovenia
ACE KIBLA invited artists, theoreticians, curators, critics or producers for one-month residency in Maribor in the frame of the eXchange of art Operators and Producers – X-OP project.
---------- about ---------------
X-OP - eXchange of art operators and producers is a gradually growing network of artists, researchers, operators, producers and centers with the aim to establish a European platform for creation of art and exchange. With its places, spaces and user-oriented technological infrastructure it fosters mobility of artists, theoreticians and executives. It is built to strengthen pan-European and global collaboration, common production and interdisciplinary approach to art.
Residency-guest should propose a project connected to the eXchange of Art Operators and Producers – X-OP project. It should be a theoretical study or an art curatorial work or a production of a visual, musical/sound, intermedia or intedisciplinary artwork.
The residency-guest is expected to collaborate with local and guest international artists, give public presentations of a new work at KIBLA and potentially in other art spaces and places, or give a lecture or/and a workshop and write an overview of the stay. Results aim to be published in the final printed and AV outputs: a book/a catalogue, a magazine, a DVD and web sites of KIBLA and the project X-OP.
We cover travel expenses, offer an accommodation in an apartment in the centre of Maribor, Slovenia and a scholarship/research grant in the amount of 800 EUR. We provide the residency-guest with connections to the art scene and aim at helping in facilitating artistic production during the residency.
