Open call for Nowa Art Space artist residency in Nowa Ruda.
New ART SPACE, a space dedicated to artists, established on the initiative of Wrocław-based mia ART GALLERY, aims to support and promote contemporary art. It is located on the premises of the former "Splot" People's and Artistic Handicrafts Work Cooperative in Nowa Ruda, a small town with unique historical and industrial charm, located in the Central Sudetenland (between Klodzko and Walbrzych).
You are invited to participate in a 2-month artist residency from August 1 to October 1.
The residency is aimed at artists working in various art fields/disciplines, during or after art training, with no age limit.
The residency aims to explore themes and issues related to New Ore and its environs, both current and historical, in any artistic medium.
Up to 4 artists will be selected from among the submitted applications, who will live together in Nowa Ruda and, with substantive support from curators Boguslaw Deptuła and Lukasz Huculak, will create artistic realizations that will be presented in at least two exhibitions summarizing the residency. The first show will be held at Nowa Art Space in Nowa Ruda, the second at Mia ART GALLERY in Wroclaw.
Suggested topics of exploration: history, cultural heritage, social transformation, human-nature relations, challenges of the present day and others. New perspectives and viewpoints are desirable, everyone can choose their own path of research.
What is a residency at the New ART SPACE:
During the residency, the artists/residents will live in a comfortable apartment located right next to Nowa Ruda's market square. Residents/artists will have two separate rooms, a living room with kitchen and balcony, a bathroom with bathtub and shower. Each participant is guaranteed an emolument (PLN 1000 per artist for the entire stay) and production and curatorial support.
New Art Space is still a raw and evolving place in transition. For creative and exhibition work, we offer a main building (about 250 sqm) and two storage spaces (about 500 sqm) with access to water, toilet and electricity.
