Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Attached is an application (editable pdf or word document) for a one month summer residency in New Delhi (artists can apply for June or July), that will be mentored by Paola Cabal and myself, to be held at Religare Artsi space in the center of Delhi. Please forward to anyone that you think might be a good candidate. Applications need to be received by the 2nd of April 2010 in New Delhi.
Here is a brief description:
A one month cutting-edge, mentored residency for emerging and mid-career artists, in Connaught Place: the heart of New Delhi, in the 12,000 sq ft Religare arts.i gallery space, followed by a one month exhibition and catalogue publication. 12 – 16 artists will be chosen in total, with 6 – 8 artists working together in each month. Artists will be encouraged to push the boundaries of their practice – materially, educationally and conceptually, expanding their knowledge and consideration of artistic methodology – what all it can be, what all it can do and what are the several possible ways of doing it particular to their own practice.
This is a truly wonderful opportunity – it includes
From Religare arts.initiative
-Vegetarian Meals – lunch & dinner
-Substantial budget for materials and production
-One time travel expense to & from New Delhi (within India, international applicants will have to find funding for their travel)
–24 hours studio access
-Group exhibition at Religare arts.i gallery post residency period
-Talks, presentations, studio visits, video screenings and introductions to curators, writers, gallerists and artists among other practitioners

‘The WhyNot Place’ residency programme is a unique art residency organized by Religare arts.initiative, a New Delhi based arts organization. Held within the gallery spaces at Religare arts.i gallery, the first art hub of Religare arts.initiative, this residency brings together a select group of emerging and mid-career artists ranging across different media and sensibilities. The residency is intended as a process studio that enables each artist to further their own conceptual and aesthetic sensibilities within a framework defined and orchestrated by a mentor. The program was launched in the summer of 2009.
