Curated Place with SPECTRA Festival in partnership with MIRIAD at the Manchester School of Art (UK), i/o/lab in Stavanger (Norway), and Fondazione Mondo Digitale in Rome (Italy), are offering artists the opportunity to participate in a new programme and network producing and promoting light and sound artworks – exploring the meeting point of art, technology and design. Artists will be invited to undertake several short residencies with their host organisations – supported by their teams of technologists and technicians to create a new public realm work for exhibition in our existing festivals. The residencies are squarely focused on completing production for exhibition outside of traditional art spaces and developing the skills and networks of all involved.
Residencies will take place in the following production windows with hosts:
Manchester: July 2017 – October 2017
Norway: July – October 2017
Italy: July – October 2017
All artists will be required to exhibit their final work at the 2018 SPECTRA Festival in Aberdeen (Feb 2018) the 2018 Rome Media Festival (Early May 2018) and The Stavanger Article Biennial (September 2018).
