Athens Arts Residency - Siilk

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Call for entries for photographers.

Building on the success of our current gallery throughout 2019/20 we have launched a new exhibition space in 2021 in the Athens artists quarter, Metaxourgeio. This new space has given us the opportunity to transform the upper spaces above the gallery into a residency space, with a self contained studio and exhibition space.

The residency for photographers will consist of a 4-week running program with accommodation where you can live and work from the Siilk Building in Athens, Greece. Use the mezzanine level of the gallery for a show for the 4 weeks or use it like an open studio, run workshops, talks, utilize the space in whichever ways you want.

At the end of each 4 week period there will be an opening night showcasing the works produced during that timeframe and featured at the main Silk Gallery space for an additional 4 weeks. Your photographic works will also be featured in our online gallery for the new website of our mother gallery - www.siilkgallery.com. We will also do a feature / interview with you leading up to the residency.

We can supply any documents to accompany any external funding sources the artists may apply for.

How the residency work:

4 week accommodation at Sillk Residents Gallery
Private view/press viewings and other publicity
Design and printing of invitations, mail out and social media invites
Photography of work for catalogue, website, press and online store
Featured work & artist information on www.siilkgallery.com and social medias

Payment & Pricing:

The price for the 4 week residency program including accommodation is €650 inclusive. This will be 4 weeks accommodation and full use of the space and a following 4 week long exhibition of works produced during your stay. If artists wish to stay longer this can be discussed.
