Open call for two fellowships funded by Compagnia di San Paolo and Regione Piemonte at Cripta747, Turin, Italy.

Residency Programme
Cripta747 Residency Programme aims to support the creative development of artists, curators and researchers from any field of contemporary culture, without any geographical or age limit. The Residency takes place at Cripta747’s headquarters, an industrial building located in the North of Turin. Following the city’s vocation for an artistic and cultural model focused on investigation and production processes, Cripta747 provides fellows with the opportunity to live and work in Turin for eight weeks between September and November 2018 while developing individual projects and immersing themselves in the city’s creative environment.

This process-based residency aims at implementing and rethinking new strategies in research and artistic practices, refocusing the attention onto the production processes. Through the fellowship, it favours mobility, fosters exchange between local and foreign researchers, and supports both material and conceptual production.

An international scientific board that consists of three members, that change every year, characterizes and orients every edition of the residency through the final selection of the residents appointed among the proposals shortlisted by Cripta747. For this edition the board is composed by: Alessio Antoniolli (Director of Gasworks, London), Giovanni Carmine, (Director of Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen) and Eva Fabbris (member of the Curatorial and Research Department of Fondazione Prada, Milan).

Fellows are invited to present the results of their researches developed in residence through a public event and an open studio.
