Studio XX

Studio XX


Studio XX’s residencies offer an opportunity for artists to experiment and produce work which explores interdisciplinary ideas and approaches. They respond to the technical, creative and theoretical requirements of the artists by offering references to their network of community experts, whose involvement must be arranged by the artist herself/himself. For a period of six weeks, resident artists have access to a dedicated work space with a computer suited to a range of media projects. There are three open residencies offered per year (which includes the possibility of virtual residencies).


The completed production or the work-in-progress, will be publicly presented at an XX event dedicated to artists-in-residence.
