Open Bodies Residency

Open Call!
2018 - 2019

The Fruitmarket Gallery and Despina are pleased to announce a new collaborative project, following last year’s participation in British Council UK-BR Exchange Programme.

With the support from the British Council and Creative Scotland, Open Bodies will bring together artists from Scotland and Rio de Janeiro for a joint residency and a series of public events culminating in a presentation at The Fruitmarket Gallery Open Out Programme in February 2019.

At this stage, we are inviting applications from Scottish-based artists working with performance, and whose work engages with gender or sexuality, to carry out a residency in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in September 2018.

Download here a PDF file to learn more and see how to apply. Deadline is 31 May 2018.
