An international residency program for visual and contemporary artists

We have partnered with the Berlin Art Institute in the BAI Residency Program to build a collaborative partnership supporting international residencies for Saudi art professionals.

The BAI Residency Program is based on the discourse and engagement with individual artistic work. This innovative concept of an international artist residency and contemporary art school pursues the vision of advancing the relationship between art, training, and research.

Participants will have full access to the BAI Studio Program including:

  • workplace
  • individual coaching
  • lectures and seminars
  • workshops
  • visits
  • an interdisciplinary discussion forum

 

The 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.

Who can apply:

Mid-career Saudi contemporary artists working in the fields of visual arts (painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic art) and contemporary art (collage, assemblage, mixed-media, video art).
