Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venice, Italy.

This is the third year that BP members have been awarded Fellowships at Scuola, so if you have questions we can connect you to a former fellow. Contact renee@bostonprintmakers.org.

Each year one BP member will be selected for a 6-week full fellowship. The BP Visiting Guest Artist will receive keys and full access to the studios 7 days a week, as well as housing accommodation in a private bedroom in Ca’ Dandolo Parisi, a prestigious Palazzo on the Grand Canal. Ca’Dandolo has hosted three Venice Biennale exhibitions, and will host another exhibition in 2019. The apartment will be shared with a guest artist selected from the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (RE) and a third guest artist selected by the Scuola. At the end of the residency there will be a 1-month exhibition of the three selected artists. Guest Artists are responsible for their meals, travel and local transportation costs.

The Visiting Guest Artist is expected on a biweekly basis to attend the courses and workshops running concurrently at the Scuola. The artist’s role in the classroom is to act as a mentor, providing further knowledge, input, and guidance to participating students. This enables the Guest Artist to become further integrated into the fabric of the Scuola’s community, while fostering dialogue in a dynamic studio setting among artists both local and international. The position allows for the freedom and time to create new work in the studio.
