Artist-in-Residence Programme (Quebec)
Deadline: February 27, 2004; Source: LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE

For Fall 2004 and Winter-Spring 2005

LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE is an artist-run centre
devoted to experimentation with installations and
in situ practices in visual arts. Its
artist-in-residence programme offers not only a
working and living space for artists, but also a
space in which to experiment with the creative
process. In our view a residency is an occasion
for an artist to question the nature of the
artistic process itself with regard to its
development and its reception. It is a laboratory
where artists are invited to work within the
space of the gallery itself or beyond its walls.

LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE is particularly interested in
work that, in the manner of works in progress,
use time as a medium. Submitted projects must
integrate installation and in situ practices.
During the residency, the selected artist will be
invited to create a unique and ephemeral piece,
in the context of a true in vivo laboratory. The
public will thus be invited to follow the
creative process of each residency project.

The centre offers

* an in situ residency of six weeks
* $ 1750 (CAN) artist fees
* technical assistance
* half of the transportation cost
* acces to a woodworking shop and a computer lab
* an essay in LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE's publication.

The proposal must include

* a written description of the project proposed
* a resume (C.V.)
* an artist's statement
* a portfolio of the artist's work (slides, CD-ROMs, videos, etc.)
* a SASE to return documents, if desired.
