Flaggfabrikken Center for Contemporary Art is offering the opportunity to undertake a one month residency for four artists in Bergen, Norway from September 19 to October 19. With the financial support from the municipality of Bergen they will offer each artist: a studio, accommodation, paid travel expenses and a daily allowance during the artist’s stay.
Deadline May 29.
The selected group of artists will be invited to stay for one month at the Christinegard mansion. Each artist will be provided their own room within the mansion and studios will be within a small commute. Each resident will have their respective studios at the following Bergen-based art institutions.
Curatron is an online software tool that involves artists directly in the curatorial processes of the exhibitions in which they participate. Curatron is an anonymous system of peer evaluation and selection, which enables a pool of artists to select co-exhibitors from amongst a group of applicants of which they are a part of. The prize sought out by the Curatron software is the algorithm for the perfect, or at least perfectly coherent, thematic group show. With the cooperation of human artists, this may just be achievable.
They will be using the Curatron software system as our method to define the artists within the group of the residency. Curatron is an online software tool developed to involve artists directly in the curatorial selection process. Each artist applying for the residency can view the entire pool of applicants and select other applicants they would like to spend their residency with. Curatron then calculates the final group from every applicants selection.
