AaBKC Residency is a residency program designed to give international artists and curators an opportunity to develop meaningful professional contacts in Aarhus, Denmark.
Aarhus Center for Visual Art (Aarhus Billedkunstcenter, AaBKC) selects one curator and one artist to live and work in Aarhus for eight weeks each spring and fall, respectively. Residents are encouraged to meet local artists and arts professionals, visit artist studios and exhibition spaces, and participate in networking meetings and cultural events.
By focusing on networking, AaBKC Residency creates a platform for cross-cultural dialogue, offering local and international artists and curators a chance to learn from and challenge one another through the exchange of ideas, perspectives, and expertise. The program is designed to foster short- and long-term professional development, allowing artists- and curators-in-residence to broaden their knowledge base, develop new and meaningful professional contacts and work relationships, create future work opportunities, refine networking skills, and build other vital professional capacities.
AaBKC Residency also aims to give artists and curators time and space to work. It is a process-oriented program that encourages residents to experiment in response to and in tandem with their exploration of the local arts scene.
AaBKC Residency is part of AaBKC International, a platform for international dialogue, networking and exchange launched in 2017.
AaBKC Residency er støttet af Det Obelske Familiefond og Tækker Group/Tækker Fonden.
