ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency


The ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency program provides opportunities for international artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, and collaborate with the arts community in St. Petersburg, Russia. Each residency is designed to enable visiting artists and curators to learn about the Russian arts community, develop their own work, and share their practices with local artists and audiences.

Residencies take place April 1 - December 31, 2020.


The ArtsLink Back Apartment invites artists and curators interested in learning about contemporary art in Russia and building relationships with the local arts community. Though preference is given to artists and curators working in the fields of socially engaged art and public art, artists working in other fields are also welcome to apply.


CEC ArtsLink currently funds residencies by artists and curators from the United States. CEC ArtsLink provides international travel, visa support and insurance (if needed), accommodation, and per diem.

Artists from other countries are welcome to apply, but will need to seek financial support to cover their expenses. CEC ArtsLink will provide lodging at the residency space and organizational support.

The duration of the Residency in St. Petersburg for artists is four weeks and for curators 10-14 days. Back Apartment Residency awardees are announced by mid-February.
