The CTG Collective is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2015. The Collective sets artists in collaboration with diverse communities and focuses on connecting people. Artist studios and exhibition spaces are rethought into unexpected environments, while communities around the world conspire as actors and collaborators. The Collective's mission is to explore the human experience through boundless configurations of art.
The CTG Collective announces the first open call for CTG(R): Zimbabwe, a month-long art residency program taking place in Harare, Zimbabwe during August 2018. The application is open to artists of all ages, working in any medium. A Selection Committee of international CTG Collective members will choose one international and one Zimbabwe-based artist to join the 2018 Residency. The two selected artist will work collaboratively for 4 weeks in Zimbabwe and, if necessary, will be responsible to finish their project in the months immediately following the residency. A two-artist exhibition will be presented at CTG Harare (Catinca Tabacaru gallery) during the 2018-2019 exhibition season.
While in residence, the artists will benefit from an intense focus on dialogue and production enhanced by the exchange of ideas and the presence of 3 more pairs of artists and numerous CTG Collective members. All artists will receive technical and artistic assistance, as well as local know-how support. The artists live and work at Dzimbanhete Arts & Culture Interactions, an art center located 20-minutes outside of the city center and surrounded by bushland and small villages.
CTG(R): Zimbabwe is an annual Art Residency program organized in collaboration between the CTG Collective, Catinca Tabacaru gallery, and Dzimbanhete Arts & Culture Interactions. It makes part of the larger CTG(R) project, a traveling Art Residency program with installments in Harare, Zimbabwe (2015/2017), Newfoundland, Canada (2016), and Jalovik, Serbia (2018). CTG(R): Zimbabwe is now evolving parallel to the broader CTG(R) program and has resulted in institutional and museum projects internationally.
A two-artist exhibition will be presented at CTG Harare (Catinca Tabacaru gallery) during the 2018-2019 exhibition season.
There's a lot of working spaces outdoors but if studio space will be needed for the project the organizers can arrange it together with the artist.
