Call for Artists: IN//BETWEEN №6 OPEN CALL
We are happy to invite artists to participate in OPEN CALL of the 6th edition of the artist residency IN//BETWEEN.
In//Between is not just an exhibition. It is a collaborative project that brings together artists from different cultures and parts of the world. In//Between is about creating a space that does not belong to any one artist, culture, language, art form, or discipline. For four weeks, the six artists selected examine the ways they have previously seen and done things and look to what lies ahead: an open canvas, a blank role of film, a block of clay, an idea or vision that has not been thought of before. Throughout this residency, the artists collaborate to build a unique exhibition that showcases the nexus between cross-cultural dialogue, experience, and growth. They will create a space where diversity leads the way. Accepted artists must commit to attend all planning, preparing, gathering, and discussion evenings. The work for this exhibition must be created between the initial group meeting and the opening of the exhibition. Previously created works will not be accepted.
Green Hill Gallery (Berlin, Germany) will be available as a studio space for all In//Between artists from October 11through November 5, 2021. The vernissage will occur on November 5, 2021.
