Artist in Residence Collective Multidisciplinary Event
The artist-in-residence program takes place over a year. During those twelve months, an artist is invited to create works on the theme Walk on Eggshells! They can benefit from support and dissemination throughout that period without being confined to a specific location. “Artist-in-residence” is based on the legal term “under house arrest”, which is used to refer to someone that is confined to their residence and under surveillance. A sentence not only imposed on the convicted, but also on a myriad of individuals stuck at home because of financial issues or their mental health. Being an artist-in-residence is both a delight and a one year sentence during which the artist—in conjunction with Folie/Culture— carries out projects wherever they wish, as they see fit. The artist will be invited to work with the Folie/Culture team to prepare an opening or midterm intervention as well as a closing intervention, among others.
Artist’s fee: $2250 Material refund: $500 Per diem allowance and accommodation included for two events (opening night and closing night of the residency).
