This is an artist-run residency.
It is open to contemporary visual artists of any medium and age, residing outside of Greece.
The artists will have a unique opportunity to experience local life first hand and be inspired from so many diverse areas of interest on a location that is completely on the crossroads of three continents and has been bringing together cultural elements from all of them since very old times.
We would like to introduce artists to this amazing place and culture but also introduce the locals to contemporary art. We aspire for the visiting artists to interact with the locals so that they understand and embrace the “ways” of contemporary art. The area is quite isolated but highly inspiring, which means it is perfect for artists that seek the focus and concentration to take their practice further.
-Artist talk at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rethymno.
-Children’s Workshop in a local school.
Artists are encouraged to leave a work made during the residency to artAmari which will be on permanent display in the artAmari premises and with the aim to have a group exhibition of the participant artists in the city of Rethymno.
3 to 4 weeks in either late Spring or early Autumn.
