Exchange grants for artistic residencies between Marseilles and Barcelona

Aim of the call for applications
Hangar, centre for art research and production in Barcelona (Spain), and the Triangle-Astérides, center for contemporary art located in Marseilles (France) are now accepting applications for grants for a cross-artistic research residency programme. The objective of this call is to offer a grant to two artists (1 local artist from Marseilles and its metropolitan area, and one based in Catalonia) of legal age working in the field of visual arts (all media are acceptable).

In the frame of that cross-residency Hangar and Triangle-Astérides collaborate and join forces.

The residency dedicated to an artist living in Catalonia will be supported and financed by Hangar with the support of Institut Ramon Llull and Cultural service of the French Embassy / French Institute of Spain.

The artist living in Marseilles and its metropolitan area will be supported and financed by Triangle-Astérides supported by Ministère de la culture – DRAC Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, Ville de Marseille, la Région Sud and Département 13 and with Cultural service of the French Embassy / French Institute of Spain for this occasion.

The residencies will take place from Monday, January 8 to Wednesday, February 28, 2024 in Barcelona, and from Monday, January 29 to Monday, April 8, 2024 in Marseilles.

About the centres

Hangar is a centre engaged in maintaining (generating, updating, reviewing and supporting) the necessary conditions to facilitate art research and production in the sense of critical forms of speculation and practices capable of addressing the urgent issues and debates currently facing society. For Hangar, art is a way of producing knowledge. In view of this, it defends art research as a research category in its own right, with its own way of finding and producing knowledge. Hangar seeks to support content creators at every stage of their art research and production processes by providing them with a whole host of tools and services (some of which are managed by Hangar and others by its resident collectives) to help them access the conceptual, contextual, semiotic, material and technical resources they need and provide a setting for experimenting and for the free transfer of knowledge. Hangar is a project of artistic governance managed by the Fundació Privada AAVC and mainly funded by the Regional Government of Catalonia and the Barcelona City Council.

Triangle-Astérides is a center for contemporary art of national interest based in Marseilles at La Friche la Belle de Mai, a cultural cooperative located in a former tobacco factory, since 1994. Triangle-Astérides articulates a rigorous program of exhibitions with research residencies for artists from international and French scenes outside Marseilles, Associate Artists and Professionals from the local scene, to which are added events, editorial projects and a thorough outreach to all audiences. Triangle-Astérides is part of international networks (notably the Triangle Network, which initiated the founding of Triangle-Astérides which remains a member while operating independently), as well as national and local networks (with the merger, in 2018, of Triangle France and Astérides). Connecting these different scales is at the heart of all its activities. Triangle-Astérides is a non-profit association supported by the Ministry of Culture – Drac PACA, the City of Marseilles, the South Region and the Bouches du Rhône Department.
