Since 2015, Viborg Kunsthal has run the highly functioning residency program Riddergade AIR, which so far has been visited by more than 30 Danish and international artists. Now the program has received funding from the Danish Art Foundation, which makes an expansion of the activities possible in 2020.
With the funding from the Danish Art Foundation there will be offered four residencies, each with a three-month duration for the artists. The applicants will be judged be a jury of art professionals.
The organizers expect the artists to have time and space to experiment and focus on their work in the residency period. The aim, likewise is to facilitate a network that will ensure future collaboration and exhibition possibilities between the residencies and the local artists and exhibition locations. Viborg Kunsthal expects that the artists in residency will show there works at the end of a residency period by giving an artist talk and/or hosting an Open Studio event.
Each scholarship includes a fee of 18.000DKK to support the coverage of travel, living, and material expenses.
