PigPrints invites printmakers working in intaglio and relief techniques to submit their work for its 2024 Residency Fellowship. The residencies will take place in February and March 2024.
The purpose of this fellowship is to give two artists the possibility of spending 2-week residency periods in Milan to produce work in our printshop, while also having the opportunity to take time to enjoy the city’s rich culture. One artist will be awarded a two-week fellowship for a February 2024 residency, another a two- week March 2024 residency.
The awarded artists will be accommodated in the cozy PigPrints apartment with kitchen and have the use of the print workshop 24/7. Travel and meal costs not included.
While creating personal work, during their stay each selected artist will be asked to produce a small edition in collaboration with PigPrints, which will be shared. All costs for this edition (plates, inks paper, etc) will be covered by PigPrints. The artists will also be asked to donate to the studio a few artist proofs of the work done during their residency time.
Artists are required to have extensive knowledge of the intaglio or relief techniques they are going to work with and be able to master all the processes and print their work independently.
Submit the following:
- Up to 5 entries of previous work. Images 1920 pixels on the longest side in one of the following files: jpg, jpeg, pdf, or png, however a single multiple image PDF is preferable.
- A short resume
- An artist’s statement about your current printmaking practice.
There is a non-refundable 15 € entry fee.
Deadline is December 15th 2023.
Winners will be announced on social media. Only the winners will be notified directly by email.
