Open Call | 126 Artist-Run Gallery Studio Residency 2018, Galway


Application deadline: 5 October, 5pm.

126 Artist-Run Gallery is delighted to announce an open call for a month-long residency at 126. The resident will receive a free studio along with support and advice from the 126 team should they require it. Use of the 126 equipment is also available.

Particular attention will be given to those looking at ideas around 126’s current project theme “Unset in Stone”. Conceived in light of recent activities surrounding the destruction of National Monuments overseas. These events became ingrained in a collective unconscious, shocking society and provoking much heated debate. 126 are inviting proposals that confront the idea that an art object can be considered a monument of sorts: a symbol of the time in which it was made: a representation of society or societal concerns, Materialism also comes into play here, as the longevity of an object in both meaning and physicality, can disintegrate change or produce new meaning.

Eligibility: Open for artists/researchers at all levels. Submissions are open to all members of 126 Artist-Run Gallery. Visit 126gallery.com to join up today and avail of this and other upcoming opportunities in 2018/19.
