SARQ offers a new residency program located at the heart of the most vibrant and creative area of Guadalajara, Mexico. Surrounded by museums, cafes, theaters and cultural centres, ESARQ is an Arts and Architecture University with an experimental turn. Our courses, workshops, and now our residency program, aim to connect different creative disciplines and merge them into an artistic production hub. The residency offers in situ dormitories with access to a working studio 24/7. The structure of the residency is different from others because it is a combination of free production with professional guidance from outstanding local artists.
To be in residence at ESARQ means to work on individual projects while being open to collaborate with fellow residents. You will receive artistic assistance in an exciting environment for production. While in residence, the artists will benefit from an intense creation time supported by the exchange of ideas and experiences with a wide variety of advisors. Advisors come from diverse backgrounds including painting, video, drawing, architecture, sculpture, curatorship, photography, ceramics, printing, literature, philosophy and cultural management.
ESARQ´s residency mission is to promote all contemporary artistic practices through production residencies whereby exchange, discussion, experimentation and collaborative work are the core structure of the program.
