UIAP is a one-off project to be realized in 2009 for enabling visual artists from Turkey to attend a residency program in Linz, Austria, from July to September, 2009, and again from October to December, 2009. The program will be reciprocated in 2010 in Istanbul.
The project “Urban Interventions” aims at inviting artists from Europe to explore various urban landscapes in different cities. It creates, within the framework of artist residency programs and activities, a platform for interaction and exchange both on a local level, as well as within a broader, inter-regional spectrum.
The project will include artists from 5 countries from Europe (Liverpool-UK, Dortmund-GE, Tallinn-EE, Istanbul-TR, And Linz-AT), developing urban art projects within the span of 3 to 6 month residencies at one of the project partner cities.
UIAP Applications will be reviewed by a committee of five professionals, including but not limited to curators, who have experience in international residencies. There will be one representative from Platform Garanti.
Artists who have a demonstrable interest in public spaces, urban initiatives and interventions, as well as mobilization of artistic practices and exchanges.
