September 2008 and August 2009, Gstaad, Switzerland. Application deadline: 30 April 2008
LA MAISON JAUNE is a residency program initiated in 2007 by PATRICIA LOW CONTEMPORARY, Gstaad, Switzerland. Artists are hosted in a beautiful 18th century chalet called “La Maison Jaune”.
The MAISON JAUNE residency program provides living and working opportunities for emerging international artists in all media of the visual arts (e.g. painting, sculpture, photography, performance, new media). The fellowship includes production costs up to CHF 3.000 per artist upon request.
The chalet which is located 10 minutes outside of Gstaad offers generous living spaces and working facilities for 3 artists at a time. The studio is next to the chalet in a barn. Artists are generally invited for a period of 4-6 weeks. The work created there will be exhibited in a show at the gallery or at La Maison Jaune shortly thereafter. Also, in an effort to record this unique artistic process, a book will be developed with a renowned publisher.
The program is dedicated to international artists up to 35 years old or artists who have completed their university or college degree within the past five years (and are not currently enrolled).
We are now inviting artists to apply for monthly residencies in Gstaad for the period between September 2008 and August 2009. The deadline is April 30, 2008. Late applications are considered on a case-by-case basis. A small jury consisting of the gallery owner Patricia Low, and internationally renowned curators, museums directors and collectors will select the fellows.
The online application has to include a complete artistic portfolio, that is, a CV, images of works produced in the past five years (not more than 20) and a letter of intent (one page max.).
Please send the requested material to email@example.com
The program is curated by Juliane von Herz. Please contact her for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
