In a moment in which the artwork is progressively defined through its becoming rather than its final state, artist-in-residence programs have turned into temples of artistic becoming and cultural exchange. With it`s own residency program Gallery Artpark opens up a unique opportunity for artists working in all disciplines to advance their work in an immersive studio environment, accomplished by a solo exhibition in the gallery.
Our Residency Program is founded with the intention to create a connective space for artists from all disciplines to work in collaboration, expanding their practice in terms of materials, formats and style. It is ideal for those seeking the time to investigate new ideas and deepen existing inquiries into the conception, production and reception of works, providing concentrated time to develop a project with structured support, feedback and conversation.
Through an explorative approach within an innovative and focused environment, the residency facilitates self-directed inquiry, enabling participants to shape a unique experience that challenges and develops their artistic practice in new ways. The intermediate results are shown every three months in an open studio exhibition, where the participants works are presented to the public in a relaxed and festive atmosphere.
Parallel to the Residency Program and the OPEN STUDIO we organize both activities (such as field trips, workshops, seminars) with creative producers and exchange projects in collaboration with other institutions. To allow time for developing, expanding and reflecting their creative practice and conceptual position, artists can apply for a residency of three or six months. The applications are evaluated by a jury of artists and art-theoreticians from the Karlsruhe art community.
