Glasgow / Marseille Artist Exchange Programme

GSS and Triangle France, Marseille have established a new 3-month Artist Exchange programme that will enable Glasgow based artists to work, share practice and learn new skills in France in 2012, whilst allowing artists based in France the same experience in Scotland in 2013.

For the selected artists, it will be an opportunity to develop their career abroad, and provide an experience that will present new professional challenges, perspectives and opportunities, allowing them to reflect on their practice, develop new work and engage with new people and concepts.

The exchange will offer participating artists the time, space and resources to consider their work or practice within different contexts, providing a focus to try out new approaches and ways of working. Selected artists will be offered a strong level of administrative, curatorial and creative support and assistance in sourcing materials, offering local knowledge, contacts and creative input.

This exchange is designed for emergent artists who are at the beginning of their career and who have left full time education or the equivalent within the last five years. Artists must be living and working in Glasgow, and or be a Member of Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

The residency will last for three months: Monday 10 September – Friday 14 December 2012.

The awardees will have access to a studio (60m2), shared accommodation in Marseille and will have return travel costs covered, and be provided with a 1000 euro production grant as well as have logistical support including production assistance, assistance in research of materials, techniques, partnerships and be linked in with the wider visual arts networks in the respective host cities.
