"ROSE" Residency Programme 2020/21

The Istituzione Bologna Musei announces the 2020/2021 edition of the "ROSE" Residency Programme. "ROSE" has the purpose to foster the international mobility of contemporary art and support its most current and creative expressions. The Istituzione Bologna Musei will select two artists or collectives of artists to design and produce two exhibition projects that will be realized—the first one in the spring 2020 and the second one in the spring 2021—at Villa delle Rose, a XVIII Century Villa, characterized by a simple and elegant architecture and located in the middle of an extensive park. The two projects, developed and produced during a stay at the Sandra Natali Residence for Artists in Bologna, must be realized with full respect of the historical and artistic elements that distinguish the exhibition venue.

Each artist or collective selected will receive an economic support to cover the costs of developing and producing a complete and coherent exhibition for Villa delle Rose. Travels, food, local transports and anything not explicitly indicated in the Call for applications will be at the expense of the artists.

The artists will be selected by an expert commission composed of five members, specifically: two representatives of MAMbo and three accredited experts in the field chosen from critics, contemporary art curators, artists or directors of contemporary art museums. The names of the members of the committee will be published on the MAMbo website after the deadline for submission of applications.
