St. Petersburg Art Residency (SPAR)



The St. Petersburg Art Residency (SPAR) was founded in 2012 in the oldest local art centerPushkinskaya-10. The program invites art professionals from all over the world to live and create in Russia’s cultural capital. But it is much more than just working on a project in a guest studio. Being part of the SPAR means experiencing a whole artistic adventure by becoming a community member, exploring the city’s unique cultural landscape and presenting your own art. The residency regularly accepts participants from Europe, US, Canada, Asia, South America, Australia and Africa. Being a platform for transcultural communication the program supports continious exchange between artists and researchers of various art directions and media, with different artistic training and world-views. The SPAR participants live and work in a unique cultural surrounding of the lively art centre Pushkinskaya-10 located in the historical part of St. Petesburg. It is home to 40 studios of St. Petersburg artists, musicians and performers, exhibition venues and concert stages the artists-inresidence are welcome to explore.



At the end of their residencies the participants hold a public presentation of their projects in a form of a solo exhibition, performance, artist talk or publication.
