Hotel Maria Kapel

Description 

Hotel Maria Kapel (HMK) is an artist-in-residence, exhibition space and cinema for contemporary visual art in the city centre of Hoorn. They are a non-profit organisation that aims to support and assist artists in the development of their practice and the production of new work and promote exchanges between national and international artists, cultural institutions and the public. HMK places the artist at the centre of its activities. The public programme of exhibitions, screenings, lectures, workshops and publications, aims to challenge perceptions of what constitutes contemporary art, and bring the audience closer to the practice that motivates it.


They are offering two types of residencies: four residencies of six-week duration and one year-long residency without accommodation that unfolds outside of HMK, in the locality of Hoorn or the area of West-Friesland. Residents are offered full and free use of accommodation and living/working facilities. HMK’s studio/exhibition space is located in an early 16th-century chapel, surrounded by a semi-private courtyard. This beautifully tranquil and spacious working environment offers a unique space for reflection, experimentation and production.

HMK is run by a small team. They offer curatorial support during the residency and are responsible for promotional activity in relation to the residency. They also offer a small fee, a small production budget and reimbursement of travel costs to and from the residency.
