OMM International Artist Residency - Open Call

Email Friend Add to Favorites Report Listing

The residency is the first official season of a long-term guest artist programme developed by the major new museum, which will see international artists invited to create work in a dynamic unfamiliar environment.

Supporting collaboration among participants, OMM’s flagship residency programme aims to bring together creatives from different backgrounds to engage in productive dialogues, encouraging experimental thinking, collective methodologies and personal growth. The program facilitates cultural exchange through artist talks, workshops and seminars exploring local practices and techniques in Eskişehir. 

The residency accepts all forms of artistic approaches including but not limited to painting, printmaking, photography, film, sound art, new media art, sculpture, and graphic design. Each artist will be given an individual studio space in the museum for their unrestricted use with a generous allowance for materials.

At the end of each residency, the work of the resident artists will be displayed at the museum in a group exhibit. 

Idil Tabanca, Chairperson and Creative Director of OMM, said:
“I want OMM’s Artist Residency Programme to be defined by its exciting, creative and open-minded approach. We want artists from diverse cities and cultures, who practise different artistic techniques, to participate in our flagship residency and bring a global perspective to OMM. In bringing international creatives to be inspired by our iconic new museum we are creating a bridge for cultural exchange between Eskişehir and the world.”    

Applications are open until 30 January and the program runs from 30 March - 30 June 2020. Candidates who wish to participate in the program should submit their application free of charge via email to
