Residencies Programs

Programmation 2011-2012 / Oeil de Poisson

February 1, 2011

Québec (Québec) Canada

As part of its 2011-12 programming, Québec City artist-run centre l’Œil de Poisson is offering an artist the chance to present his or her work in its main gallery following an in-house research and production residency. The residency will take place over a three-month period in the centre’s workshops.

DEADLINE : February 1st, 2011

The residency is designed for artists who require the use of our wood and/or metal shops for the entire three-month period in order to realize an installation or sculptural or multidisciplinary work that incorporates materials and techniques that can only be handled in the shops.

The artist chosen for the residency will be provided with accommodations and a per diem for the entire period, which extends from October 25, 2011 to January 17, 2012.

The artist will be housed in one of the units of Méduse, a cooperative of centres working in visual, media and multidisciplinary arts.

The exhibition that follows the three-month residency will be part of l’Œil de Poisson’s programming for its main gallery. The dates are from January 14, to February 13, 2012.

While developing the project, the artist will have access to all the equipment contained in the wood and metal shops, vast common spaces where many artists from the Québec City region work under the guidance of professional technicians.

The mezzanine overlooking the shops will be made available to the artist for use as a personal studio. Visit the wood and metal shop section of our website for more details.

Per diem : 750$ per month (total of 2250$)
Production : 500$
Exhibition fee : 1600$
