Cyprus Artist Residency

Cyprus Artist Residency


Focusing on visual arts, but encouraging crossings and interactions with other disciplines, the CAA residency programme aims to become an international laboratory for the creation and the diffusion of contemporary art, to present contemporary art in all its diversity, and to offer a permanent dialogue with the developments and the most recent debates of the art world. As such, it aims to become an international laboratory for artists from all over the world.

Residents are offered an individual workspace within a framework designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas with the artistic and cultural life of Cyprus. Residents will be asked to spend one day per week for interactions with students and staff at the CAA, for example by offering tutorials, seminars, or other activities. As such, the Residency will provide a unique working environment in which artists can pursue their work and also participate in current debates and research regarding contemporary art practices with students, academics, and others.

The residency programme is held at one of the campuses of Cyprus Academy of Arts in the City centre of Limassol. Limassol, located on the southern coast of Cyprus in Limassol, the second-largest city in Cyprus after Nicosia. Situated between the ancient cities of Amathous to the east and Kourion to the west it is a cosmopolitan city with a rich cultural heritage. Known for the centuries-old Limassol Castle, home to the Cyprus Medieval Museum and its collection of pottery and tombstones.

On the seafront is the Prokymea (Molos) Sculpture Park, with sculptures by Cypriot, Greek, and international artists. To the northeast is the Limassol Archaeological Museum, exhibiting artifacts from the Neolithic to the Roman periods. The city has incorporated elements of the many empires and kingdoms that have claimed it over centuries stretching back to the Bronze Age.


Exhibition at the end of the residency. One day a week dedicated to contact time with students of the Academy for talks, seminars etc.
