During a four months stay, visiting artists can work, execute projects, or prepare exhibitions. M4gastatelier has a studio, a living quarters-kitchen, a bathroom and two bedrooms. (approximately 120 sq meters) The studio is fully furnished and equipped (basic tools) including WiFi. The space provides an opportunity both for individual work practice as well as for co-operation for two or three people. It is suitable for artists from all disciplines. The physical layout of the studio, with separate living and working areas, offers the opportunity to experiment with different forms of (interdisciplinary) collaboration.
The artist will receive support in establishing contacts with galleries, curators and fellow artists, and in contacts with businesses and art and scientific institutions in Amsterdam and beyond. The artist may seek in Tetterode expertise and execute operations by various businesses, such as a wood workshop, a metal workshop and ceramics studios. In consultation with the artist, the work is concluded with a final presentation and/or a debate, whether or not in cooperation with other art institutions. Presentations can be made in consultation with the organization in the studio space of M4gastatelier, the project space of the monumental foyer of Tetterode. Presentation and promotional costs are covered by the organization. The residency is open to professional visual artists. The costs are € 700 per month, energy included. Other expences, living and travel costs, must be covered by the artist. The selected artist must be prepared to be quite self-reliant.
The application must consist a short project proposal for the entire residency period and artist statement and updated cv and documentation of work. Current work is requested. Incomplete applications will not be considered. We prefer the application to be sent electronically in PDF maximum 10 MB. If you are sending video material, please refer to downloading sites and links like Vimeo, YouTube etc. If you do have a personal updated website, it is accepted as application material for documentation of work, cv etc. Residents are selected by the M4gastatelier team, guest curators and other arts professionals.
In 2018 M4gastatelier selects artists via its own network and on recommendation. It is therefore not possible to apply in 2018 by Open Call. The next deadline for upcoming entries in 2019 will be announced on this website soon. For more information click here
