Residency Programs for The Boston Printmakers at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, in Venice Italy
Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship
February 15 – March 31, 2019
Application Deadline: June 30, 2018
Visiting Guest Artist Full Fellowship at Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venice, Italy.
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.
