Montreal, January 5, 2017 – PERTE DE SIGNAL is calling for proposals for its research-creation residency, which offers assistance to local and international artists and artist collectives for the creation of digital art projects.
Residencies are privileged moments for reflection and creativity in the evolution of an artist’s practice. This program seeks to offer artists a meeting place to support the development of a creative process. A writer will also participate in the process and in the artist’s reflection on his or her work by meeting with the artist and writing a text.
Established in 2009, the research-creation residency program offers the space and equipment at RUSTINES|LAB to one or more local or international artists for the research, creation and production of a digital art, installation or performance project. This program has supported many artists, including Romain Tardy (Brussels), Verena Friedrich (Cologne), and Blake Carrington (Brooklyn).
A curator, critic or theorist will be invited to collaborate with the artist in residence to write a text on the research-creation project or on the artist’s creative process. The artist and the writer will both receive a fee.
