The Objectifs Artist-in-Residence programme is open to all artists who incorporate photography and film in their work. The aim is to provide visual artists, who want to develop their craft, with a supportive platform, conducive for the creation and development of new personal work. Being in a new environment allows artists to interact with the local arts community and exposes artists to a diversity of cultures and ideas.
During the residency period, the artist is expected to:
- Share work-in-progress through discussions, screenings, exhibitions, keeping Objectifs updated on project progress;
- Conduct up to 6 hours of workshops or seminars per week, tailored to the artist’s area of specialty;
- Showcase their completed project at the end of the residency period, e.g. in the form of an exhibition or screening.
There are no restrictions on nationalities, but residents are responsible for applying for a valid tourist or social visitor’s pass.
Artists are welcome to use the facilities at Objectifs, which includes a gallery space. The following equipment is also available:
iMac G5 with Final Cut Pro HD and Adobe Photoshop CS, B&W Darkroom with chemicals, 3CCD Panasonic DVX camera
