Kunsthalle Krems in Krems, Austria
One- to two-month residencies, Jun 15–Aug 15, 2014 (note year)
Open to Faculty in the degree program, and full-time SAIC Staff
A former carpet factory along the Danube River has been converted to a multi-use arts building by the government of Lower Austria. See www.air-krems.at for more information on the program.
Through an exchange program, SAIC artists are provided a furnished apartment and a shared studio space. In exchange, artists from Austria are awarded residencies in Chicago, and are hosted by the School from June 1-August 1 each summer.
- SAIC provides a $1500 stipend per month to assist with travel expenses.
- Knowledge of German is extremely helpful but not required.
- While there are multiple international artists-in-residence in Krems at any one time, each is sponsored by a different organization. Consider this an unstructured and independent residency with minimal support from the sponsoring agency.
- Travel by train or car to Vienna (2 hrs), or to Venice, Prague, and Budapest (5 hrs).
- Once selected, recipients must provide extensive documentation of their practice to the sponsoring arts organization in Krems
