The first art residence in the Far East opens

The Zarya Center for Contemporary Art in Vladivostok has opened a recruitment of artists for the region's first art residence, according to a press release from Zarya.

The art residence on the basis of the ZARYA Center for Contemporary Art is the first place in the Far East for the concentration of creative forces and intensive artistic exchange and an important step towards the development of the local artistic environment.

The residence is aimed at analyzing the local environment, its development, establishing a lasting dialogue with both the narrow professional community and the broad audience of Vladivostok, and is focused on the overall revitalization of the cultural landscape.

The uniqueness of the junction of the two cultures in the Asia-Pacific region gives the artist-resident material for in-depth research work on the basis of both East-West dichotomy and any other narrower and more specialized phenomenon inherent in the place. The residence strives to become a reliable partner both for local professionals and organizations, and for international authors and institutions.

Subsequently, works of art created after the artist's stay, are called upon to become the basis for the collection of the Zarya CEC.

Painters working in the genre of painting, sculpture, as well as graphics, photos and videos, installations, performances, choreography, theater, music and street art are invited to participate in the artistic residence of the Zarya Center for Contemporary Art. The residence is ready to accept both independent artists and collectives. Priority is given to projects focused on working with the local context.

The deadline for receiving the first set of applications is November 30 (for the period of the artists' stay from December 2014 on 31 May 2015). The program of the residence for the first half of the year will be made public in early December.

The second set of applications is made from 10 January on 28 February (for summer-autumn 2015). The residence program for this period will be formed until the end of spring.

The participant is provided with a free-of-charge studio for living and a workshop for work on the territory of the Zarya Center for Contemporary Art, part of the costs for materials.

The residence is ready to cover an air ticket and / or a railway ticket to Vladivostok with a total amount of 18 000 rubles.

Selection of residents is carried out on the basis of applications. Each application is considered individually, and also potentially serves as a material for future exhibition projects of the ZSI ZSI.
