AiR Tilburg – Artist in Residence Tilburg offers research or production residencies to hybrid artists who seek for advancement, development or reorientation in their artistic practice. The Artist in Residence programme of SEA Foundation is complemented by guidance and individual mentoring from which young talents as well as more established artists benefit. The residencies are especially aimed to recalibrate focus and reprioritize urgency.
Pass the puddle
Artists who ask themselves developmental questions about the status of their work, changing grounds add to new input and a change of perspective to clarify this puddle of questions, and help you to explore the core as well as the fringes of your art practice further.
In addition to the artist in residence studio time, hybrid artists may also be offered a development trajectory for up to two years and work towards a solo exhibition in our Project Space or elsewhere in the world. To stir up developments and adding opportunities, this provides an extra incentive and adds horizon for a resident. SEA Foundation builds bridges between emerging artists and already established professional artists, whom we all see as peers. We feast on collaboration and are plugged into a proper connected international, national as well as local network. And, we will encourage you to plot and forge new liaisons too. If you, as a visual artist, think that a research or production residency will offer you opportunities, then do not hesitate to apply.
Annually, SEA Foundation invites artists to apply for flexible residencies up to the duration of one month. Through these residencies, SEA Foundation aims to create and foster collaborations between Dutch artists in the Netherlands, curators, art institutions, and their artistic peers internationally. The advantage for an international artist visiting the south of the Netherlands, is easy access to a dynamic and growing visual contemporary art scene within an area that is compact and easy to access. SEA Foundation has a large, warm, local as well as international network and an established reputation, which ensures introductions to both public and private art institutions, directors, curators and artists at all levels.
