Do you accept multidisciplinary artists and/or performance artists in your programme?
If you are predominantly showing your work / sound pieces / performances in professional visual art contexts such as art museums, exhibition spaces, artist run project spaces, art biennials and art festivals, you are eligible for the MALT AIR residency program. If your praxis has predominantly been unfolding in other professional performative art / music contexts, you are not eligible.
What activities can I expect to participate in during the programme?
We will tailor a programme relevant to your research and practice, within which you will be able to meet institutions and individuals from the Danish art scene. This could be in the form of exhibition visits, meetings with artists and curators, participating in seminars, etc. We would like to plan your programme with you before the commencement of your residency. Some of your excursions and visits will be with a guide, others will be on your own.
The programme will also include three artist talks in our institutions: Kunsthal Aarhus, The Danish Art Workshops and Maltfabrikken. You will also be matched with a peer – a professional Danish artist – who will give you two mentoring sessions. You will also be offered curatorial guidance from Kunsthal Aarhus and coaching about artistic production processes at The Danish Art Workshops.
