In partnership with Berlin Art Institute, two groups of six mid-career contemporary artists working in the fields of visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic art) and contemporary art (collage, assemblage, mixed-media, video art) will be supported with a full residency program in Berlin, Germany. The opportunity is open to Saudi citizens and will take place in the Fall and Winter of 2021.
The BAI Residency Program offers full access to the BAI Studio Program providing all participants with a workplace, individual coaching, courses, projects, lectures, seminars, workshops, visits, and an interdisciplinary discussion forum. The Residency Program’s concept is based on the discourse and engagement with the individual artistic work, in which an international team lecturers and colleagues are involved.
BAI offers regular events engaging with artists, critics, curators, and other creatives giving a space for all participants to exchange with the actors of contemporary art in Berlin during their stay. This provides important opportunity for stimuli and constructive critique in regard to maintaining and freely developing one’s own artistic position.
With its innovative concept of an international artist residency and contemporary art school, the BAI pursues the vision of advancing the relationship between art, training, and research.
