Deadline: May 24, 2020
The PLMJ Foundation generously supports one artist in residence for a period of 3 months during 2020 at AiR 351´s headquarters in Cascais.
Artists from the CPLP (Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries) that live in Portugal at any stage of practice are invited to apply.
This is the 1st edition of the PLMJ / AiR 351 grant. Considering the current outbreak and its consequences its specific focus prioritizes the local artistic community.
AiR 351 is an independent international visual arts residency program located in Cascais, Lisbon region (Portugal).
AiR 351´s praxis follows a collaborative model and its team works closely with each resident on a highly supportive environment. Through institutional partnerships AiR 351´s activities encompass a variety of contexts such as museums, universities and art schools.
Due to the specific current circumstances PLMJ and AiR 351 have agreed to launch a thematic residency open call. This call seeks artists whose works address one or more of the following topics:
vulnerability, uncertainty, social solidarity, isolation/proximity, borders, crisis, vigilance, migration, refuge, social inequalities, protection, politics of movement and touch, virtuality.
Although connected to the current situation these topics can be considered in a broader and even metaphoric way and not being merely illustrative of reality.
Works (texts, images, objects) may or may not be recent and should make room for relating with the current turn.
The PLMJ / AiR 351 Grant 2020 recipient will benefit from:
All applications documents must be included on the same file (1 document only, 10 MB max):
– Personal information (contacts)
– Letter of motivation including a brief description of current practice, statement of intent and goal of the residency (500 words max.);
