PigPrints invites printmakers working in intaglio and relief techniques to submit their work for its Summer/Fall 2024 Residency Fellowship.
The purpose of this fellowship is to give an artist the possibility of spending a 2-week residency period in Milan to produce work in our printshop, while also having the opportunity to take time to enjoy the city’s rich culture.
The selected artist will be awarded a full-funded two-week fellowship for a residency to take place between June and December 2024. The dates will be determined by the artist and PigPrints upon the studio availability.
The awarded artist will be accommodated in the cozy PigPrints apartment with kitchen and have the use of the print workshop 24/7. Travel and meal costs are not included but the artist will receive a stipend of € 500 to help cover these costs.
While creating personal work, during their stay, the 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 artist will also be asked to donate to the studio a few artist proofs of the work done during the residency time.
While assistance from the studio staff will be at hand, applying 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.
Deadline is April 5th 2024.
There is a non-refundable 20 € entry fee (Early bird € 15 until February 29th)
The winner will be announced on social media. Only the winner will be notified directly by email.
