Summer Residency 2012-13
Following the success of the 2012 Winter Residency program, the Contemporary Sculptors Association is inviting applications from emerging and established artists for a 6 week Summer Residency at the Yarra Sculpture Gallery.
We are offering the opportunity for artists to experiment and expand their practice, a time to take chances and explore possibilities. We are looking, ideally, for artists who would like to have the opportunity to create installation or large scale sculptural works within the gallery space.
Up to five artists will be selected and allocated one of the gallery spaces in which to work. Artists will have 24 hour non residential access to the space. An Open Studio will be held on the last weekend of the residency, where the artists can present any finished work or discuss work in progress with other artists and the public.
Details of the gallery space can be found below. Please rank your preferences for spaces, if you have them, in your application. We will endeavor to accommodate your choices but cannot make any guarantees.
Applicants will need to provide a CV, 5 images of current or relevant work (1MB max each image) and a 250 word proposal for the residency. Successful applicants would be required to join the CSA if not already members.
Applications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent via post to:
