Uncool Artist Online Art Residency

ILAP promotes participants’ personal and professional growth through theoretical discussions, knowledge exchanges, expert sessions and exercises customized to their individual aspirations. It also offers opportunities to expand networks and engage in critical discussions about the current art world offering an enriching experience for artists, curators, critics, researchers, educators, and professionals in the cultural sector.

We believe in a concept of artistic residency as an ‘assisted studio practice’, i.e. as a space for dialogue between curators, artists, and other agents of the art field, in which the priority is the organicity of the relationships, and in which a guide is created for experiences structured in a flexible way. At ILAP there is no a priori result: everything varies according to the purposes and involvement of each one in the processes. This model, present in traditional schools such as Royal College of Arts (London, UK), De Atelies (Amsterdam, Netherlands), has been adapted to the online world where participants have the opportunity to focus on their proposed projects, explore new directions in their artistic practice and deepen their knowledge of international contemporary art.

We are open for applications for 2024/2025

Applications deadline:
March 17 (SUN), 2024, 11:59 pm (ET).

Methodology

Creating strong and lasting bonds is key to a sustainable and happy life in the arts. Our focus is on cohesive work and collaborative growth rather than stimulating a romanticized view of “the artist” or “the curator” as the stars in the art world.

For us, a welcoming and interdisciplinary community is the primary way to professional, financial, and emotional fulfillment for all those involved, while respecting individualities and specific necessities without losing sight that we are stronger when we collaborate.
