Each season, Studio Béluga dedicates its space and facilities to hosting self-directed and thematic residencies produced by artists, curators, scholars, and other creative professionals. Intended to work conceptually with the studio’s exhibition and events programs, these residencies bring together participants from diverse backgrounds that share ideals and interests, in order to generate a working and thinking environment and to facilitate creative exchange of new ideas.
The length of each Residency is two-and-a-half months. During this time, each artist is offered a space of 200-400 sqft to develop the proposed project. At the end of the term, a selection of the residents’ projects is curated by the board into a group exhibition.
They do not provide accommodation, but offer help in finding apartments or rooms for rent for the residents.
Occupying a 2100 square foot loft in a former textile factory in the heart of the Mile End neighborhood of Montreal, Studio Béluga offers its residents easy access to the city's vibrant cultural community.
