The Romanian Association of Contemporary Art (ARAC) is a non-profit organization founded in June 2012, in order to produce and promote Romanian contemporary art in Romania and abroad. The team of ARAC engages in stimulating and supporting contemporary artists by attracting funds in order to ensure financial resources – as part of ARAC's mission statement. An important objective of ARAC is to facilitate cultural exchanges with artistic environments from other countries participating in festivals, fairs or any event that relates to contemporary art.
ARAC is offering a residency opportunity for a curator and an artist to document and envision a site-specific project in Bucharest. “Plantelor 58 Artist Residency” aims to introduce international artists and curators to the Romanian cultural environment. The selected curator and artist will be encouraged to take as much inspiration as possible from the local context and work within the artistic medium of photography. The theme of this year's residency focus is the architectural and the socio-cultural context of the residency space of 58 Plantelor, situated in a historical building near the Bucharest Old Centre.
The curatorial residency aims to enable an international curator to document, research and get better acquainted with the local art scene, with a special interest on photography, linked to this year's residency focus - connected with the history and the community space of the residence.
The artist is encouraged to experiment and produce new works based on the concepts and directions developed together with the local ARAC curator, Cristina Stoenescu. At the end of the residency period, the artist's work will be displayed in an exhibition at Anca Poterasu Gallery. Open presentations about the residency exhibition and the artistic process will be held in Bucharest and at the Centre of Contemporary Photography, in Iași.
The aim of the project is to offer the possibility for the curator and the artist to engage in an active dialogue with Romanian art practitioners and local art audiences. The material and financial support for artistic production is limited, but available.
Private accommodation and studio with free wi-fi. The studio shares the same courtyard with the exhibition space of Anca Poterasu Gallery. It comprises of a 25m2 furnished room, with own bathroom and kitchen space.
One studio that can host photography and curatorial residents.
