[Nettime-ro] Palais-Royal OpenAir RESIDENCY




Palais-Royal OpenAir 2010 â Rules
The Palais-Royal OpenAir
project was triggered by a desire to encourage young European artists
by offering them a creative residency in a motivating and prestigious
site in the heart of Paris. 

Designed to promote and enhance the value of contemporary artistic work, Palais-Royal OpenAir
welcomes young creators-in-residence and places exhibition space at
their disposal to make their artistic approach more visible to a broad

The first edition, organized by a partnership with foreign cultural institutions, will open in 2010 in the premises of the Peterâs Friends gallery.
The call for candidatures will be made throughout the year in order to
allow young talents from different cultures and horizons to produce and
diffuse their projects. 

                    Conditions of Participation 
                	Both emerging and confirmed professional artists from the European
countries selected for the 2010 edition are invited to propose their
projects. Candidates must be under 40 years of age and must work in the
field of the plastic arts (painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture,
photography, etc.). Students may apply on condition that they are in
their final year of arts school. 
                    Nature of the Project 
                    Palais-Royal OpenAir
is a competition which offers the winner the opportunity of a residency
and a personal exhibition at the Peterâs Friends gallery. The
exhibition is intended to be the starting point of the residency. The
artists are required to present a project that they have conceived
specifically for the occasion or, if applicable, their recent works, on
condition that these constitute a pertinent and coherent project as a
whole. During the residency, the artists are also encouraged to develop
a creative project relating to their artistic research. The theme is
free. In both cases, the works must take the constraints imposed by the
gallery's layout into consideration.

The works exhibited will be offered for sale (the Peter's Friends
gallery will take a commission). Works conceived during the residency
may be presented in association with partners from the artistâs country
of origin. 
                    Geographic Zone
                    European geographical criteria will be applied to each edition of PalaisâRoyal OpenAir.  One artist per country will be present for a specific residency term in order to allow diversity of expression.
                    The artists will be selected following examination of their folders by the PalaisâRoyal OpenAir
selection committee. Each country will have a selection committee
comprising representatives of cultural institutions and of the gallery,
as well as cultural professionals. In certain cases, the artists may be
designated directly. Applications will be examined monthly and the
results communicated at least one month prior to the start of each
residency. The winners will be informed of the results by publication
on the PalaisâRoyal OpenAir website as well as by e-mail.
                    Selection Criteria
                    The selection of the artists is based on the quality and originality of
their artistic approach and the suitability of their projects for the
galleryâs environment. 
                    Length of Residency 
                    Seven residencies are planned for 2010.  Each of these will host one artist for a period of 4 to 5 weeks.
