Open Call for artists in residency – Risk Change

5.4.2018. u 00h

The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka announces an


for artists in residency


who will be presented at the MMSU, as the parallel program of the exhibition Escape , the third part of the EU project Risk Change,

The artists in residency are invited to spend the period between 7. – 23. 8. in Rijeka (Kamov residency) and to develop artistic proposal (work for the exhibition space or artistic intervention) in the context of the exhibition Escape. Preference shall be accorded to proposals that are intermediary, and are connected to the topic of escape. The notion of escape has numerous connotations: the escape of capital, the escape of thought, the escape of brains, the escape from reality, which involves crossing the regular boundaries and breaking the regulations. While the need for escape often has a negative sign, the exhibition Escape takes interest in it as a proactive and self-sustaining act that manifests at least in two ways – as an effect of the lack of tolerance for an ongoing situation but also as a perk of being able to make an escape in the first place.

The public call is open until 20th July 2018. The contributions will be chosen by MMSU curators: Ksenija Orelj, Sabina Salamon, Nataša Šuković, Marina Tkalčić and invited curator Sabrina Žigo (MGR).

Applications should contain:

– name, surname, address, telephone number and e-mail address; CV
– a description of the proposed project that will be developed during the residency
Notes for applicants:

Individuals and collectives from the area of the Republic of Croatia and the EU, and Third Countries have the right to apply to the public invitation.
The applicants can apply to the e-mail: with the subject ‘Escape’
The predicted costs are up to 10.000,00 kunas gross (including the costs for production) with additional funds for travel expenses. The accommodation will be secured by the MMSU.

The program is supported by the EU program Creative Europe, the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the City of Rijeka.

The exhibition is part of the programme line Kitchen – Center for Creative Migrations, within the ECOC Rijeka 2020 – Port of Diversity.
