Vejle Printmaking Workshop
Vejle Printmaking Workshop was created with the purpose of establishing and developing technical facilities within the professional graphic art field. The intention is to ensure that the artists associated with the workshop have the best possible conditions for their creation of graphic art.
AIR-Vejle is Vejle Printmaking Workshop’s residency programme for international fine art printmakers. The primary goal of the residency is to give the artist an opportunity for some time to immerse themselves in the artistic process. At the same time there is a focus on networking, dialogue and knowledge exchange.
AIR-Vejle cooperates with Vejle Art Museum. Vejle Art Museum is a leader in graphic fine art / works on paper. The museum has a unique graphic art collection of about 20.000 works – the next largest collection of graphic art in Denmark.
The application is an Open Call process. The artist is chosen by a jury composed of 2 representatives of Vejle Printmaking Workshop, 1 representative of the Artist Council of the Municipality of Vejle, 1 representative of Vejle Art Museum and the coordinator of AIR-Vejle.
