AiR for EU artists in Luxembourg

The European Investment Bank (EIB) Institute is pleased to announce the 2020 edition of its Artists Development Programme (ADP). The EIB Institute is looking for one visual artist (born after 1 January 1985) from an EU Member State to work on the theme “Disruption: The Imprint of Man” and one visual artist (born after 1 January 1985) from an EU Member State to work on the theme “(De)Construction of History”. The ADP offers emerging European visual artists a 6-8 week-long residency in Luxembourg, enabling them to develop their practice and create a new (body of) work(s), boosted by the mentorship of a renowned artist. In 2020, the recipients will each be mentored by acclaimed Finnish artist Jorma Puranen.

The EIB Institute will cover the artists travel costs to and from Luxembourg (for the residency), and to and from Jorma Puranen’s studio (before the start of the residency). The artists will receive a EUR 100 (one hundred euro) flat-rate daily allowance intended to cover their subsistence costs during the period of residency and all or part of their production costs, and will be provided with a living/working space. In addition to the above, the artists will be granted, at the beginning of the residency, a contribution towards production of EUR 500 (five hundred euro) and, at the end of the residency, a success fee of EUR 1,000 (one thousand euro), provided that they have produced a work or body of works. The residency in Luxembourg will take place between early May and end June 2020. Upon completion of the residency, the EIB might consider acquiring an artwork produced on-site from the artist.
