CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
LIKE AN ARTIST
Period: April, May, June 2018
Application deadline: 14 February 2018 - Midnight
The Like an Artist project forms part of a research study on talent development for mature artists, conducted by the Van Eyck in collaboration with Maastricht University. The provision of working places at the Van Eyck for mid-career and older artists is an important component of the study.
In the Like an Artist project, the Van Eyck offers three one-month working periods to artists, designers, writers and other makers, in the period April-June. Candidates must be age 40 or above; there is no upper limit.
Each of the selected artists will have the use of a personal studio at the Van Eyck for one month. They will find themselves in the company of 35 to 40 other participants who include artists, designers, architects, curators and writers. The Van Eyck offers studio visits by staff and guest mentors, well-equipped Labs (for printing & publishing, photography/new media, woodwork, metalwork, the library and nature research), and a public programme of lectures, events, workshop courses, symposia and exhibitions.
The participant in Like an Artist is intended to work on a self-chosen project that gives expression to his or her qualities. A public presentation opportunity is an essential part of the working period. The selected artists must be available for interviews with researchers from Maastricht University.
The research outcomes of Like an Artist will be presented at a symposium. There will also be a publication on the project.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Any professional artist, designer, writer or other maker aged 40 years or more may apply. The candidate must feel empathy for the vision of the Van Eyck, and should be open to interaction with other participants, staff and visitors. He or she must also be prepared to cooperate with research on talent development in collaboration with Maastricht University.
A project by Van Eyck Mirror and the Hubert van Eyck Academie in collaboration with Maastricht University.
With the support of: Edmond Hustinx Foundation and Bank Giro Loterij Fonds.
