Artists explain residencies for Artists In Residence Television

 

 

With around 2.500 residency programs worldwide, the art residencies are becoming more and more important in the artists’ life, giving time to experiment, investigate and elaborate new artworks, disciplines, concepts… Often offering a new context and culture, residencies allows artists to be more open-minded, to think out of the box and out of their comfort zone. Gifting them time to be entirely focused on their projects also allows them to progress personally on their works and its quality.
In addition, they are able to exchange with other communities of artists that will influence their works in the long term. Meeting with other artists often make them feel that they are not alone and that others are experiencing the same difficulties, and this encounter definitely helps to find solutions in overcoming problematics. For the artists, it is a unique opportunity to get to know other cultures, but for those local cultures, it is also a chance to connect themselves with foreign ways of thinking. Both will be receiving ideas and critics that will feed their creativity and make their works more powerful.
Furthermore, they will be creating their own international networks with artists and art institutions, helping their personal career developments. It allows them to confront their works with a more intrinsic eye and be successful as international artists.
In the end, art residencies are spaces and times where artists can just be artists!
