Lives and works : models of presence

16 03 2013 00:00 01:00

Lives and Works: Models of Presence examines the role of residences as a platform for networking, production, presentation and inspiration in the current art scene. This symposium aims to highlight different aspects of a complex operation: the position, the importance, the value, the output. In addition to this, we shall also discuss the multiplicity and complexity of an artist-in-residence organization, the regional flow, the importance of a network and the reflectivity for art practice provided by residences.

Lives and works models of presence

Lives and Works: Models of Presence an initiative of Frans Masereel Centrum, AIR Antwerpen, FLACC, Lokaal 01 and WIELS, arose from the need for critical comment on current policy trends for residencies and from the need to render these trends and their effects/operations visible to a wider audience. With the support of BAM.
