Open Bodies Residency

Subscriptions closed!

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 selecting applications from Rio de Janeiro-based artists working with performance, and whose work engages with gender or sexuality, to carry out a residency at Despina in September 2018.

For the application form in Portuguese, click here. Information about the selected Scottish-based artists will be posted soon.
