Art Residency Opportunity for Migrant and Refugee Artists or Artists who identify with experience of displacement 

at Printmaking Studios Across Europe

Five printmaking studios across Europe are inviting applications from artists to undertake a 1-month long printmaking residency as part of the European residency programme In from the Margins, funded by Creative Europe. 

30 artists will be selected in total, will have the opportunity to work in a print medium of their choice and will be supported to develop their practice practically and professionally. Throughout the residency programme we will be welcoming local, refugee and migrant communities in the studios to engage with resident artists, to share their own stories and create new work which will be shared between our project members and the wider visual arts community in Europe. The programme will culminate in a group exhibition at Edinburgh Printmakers in spring 2023.    

In from the Margins is a collaboration between:
Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland   
Cork Printmakers, Ireland    
Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense, Denmark    
International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, Slovenia    
AGA Lab, Amsterdam, Netherlands 
  

Artists are invited to apply for the residency opportunity available within their host country. Call details for each of the studios can be found on their website.

Deadline for applying: Friday, 19th November 2021

Funded by Creative Europe, In from the Margins is a European programme of residencies that provides: supported workspaces for artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds; exchanges of their work; and engagement with refugee, schools and wider communities. Work with refugee and migrant artists is currently largely focused on outreach and engagement programmes of major galleries. The project will bring this work 'in from the margins' to mainstream programming.

In from the Margins will create the first network of Studios of Sanctuary in Europe, offering opportunities for 30 artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds or artists who identify with experience of displacement to take up supported residencies in internationally recognised print studios, taking place as follows: 
9 residencies at Edinburgh Printmakers; 
6 residencies at Cork Printmakers, Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense and International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana; and 
3 residencies at AGA Lab, Amsterdam. 

An engagement programme with refugee, schools and wider communities will be running alongside the residencies. The contribution that refugees and migrant communities make to wider society will be celebrated also through exchanges of their work, exhibitions and multi-disciplinary events. 

In from the Margins seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for refugee artists and local communities to share and to learn from each other while being supported by the resources and expertise of print studios. Each organisation will work in the language of their own studio and the languages of the resident artists where possible.

The project emerged from discussions between the partners, all print studios with civic aims which are based in multicultural cities on the margins of Europe. Our residency programme will further develop the 'Studios of Sanctuary' model, which originated in Yorkshire in response to the work of migrant artist Mohammed Barrangi, an artist and former paralympian from Iran who became resident artist at The Art House in Wakefield, in a range of contexts across Europe.

Samuel Grajfoner: The Material Presence of the Mental Imprint

21. 1.–8. 3. 2022
MGLC - Tivoli Mansion

The exhibition presents large-format prints in the techniques of engraving and drypoint, created in recent years and mostly presented to the public for the first time. They reflect the artist's understanding of the creative process as a spontaneous, organic development of the preparation of the matrix, which materialises in an impression on paper or, for the first time, in bronze.

Adrijan Praznik: --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US…

7. 1.−13. 2. 2022
MGLC Švicarija

Adrijan Praznik plays various roles in the world of art – he is a painter, illustrator, curator, producer and artistic director of Simulaker Gallery in Novo mesto. In January 2022, he completed a two-year artist residency at MGLC Švicarija. Upon his departure, he prepared the exhibition --WHERE OUR HEARTS HAVE LED US... The spatial installation of two large-scale paintings raises questions that illustrate his work and research focus in 2021 particularly. Namely, he is concerned with the form and status of the artwork, the appropriation of the media image and the combination of pictorial means of expression as well as materials.
