Viborg Kunsthal

Viborg Kunsthal

Riddergade AiR

Viborg Kunsthal is an exhibition space for the living and dynamic contemporary art and Riddergade AIR is a residency programme for professional Danish and International artists, allowing for networking and development of each artist's practice. There are affiliated volunteers/ local hosts that will assist with local transport, organizing excursions, guided city tours etc.

There are four scholarships awarded annually to applicants. The scholarships will be given to two artists per period, which means that there will be two artists in residency for one period at a time: one from 27/03/23 until 26/06/23 and the second from 27/08/23 until 26/11/23. The purpose of this is to give the artists the possibility of working alongside each other and thus making new connections and dialogue, preferably one in the studio and the other in the graphic workspace.


The organizers expect the artists to have time and space to experiment and focus on their work in the residency period. The aim, likewise is to facilitate a network that will ensure future collaboration and exhibition possibilities between the residencies and the local artists and exhibition locations. Viborg Kunsthal expects that the artists in residency will show there works at the end of a residency period by giving an artist talk and/or hosting an Open Studio event.
