Reykjavík Public Space Programme (RPSP) is a new part of artFart presenting site-specific works made for public space. Now RPSP calls out for artists/collaborators/collectives to man three, three week residencies in August this year. This great opportunity will suit anyone interested in pursuing creative experimentation with live art in the public sphere. The selected artists will have access to a workspace, marketing, a fee and a trip to ANTI Festival in Kupio Finland.
Dancer Inga Maren Rúnarsdóttir has agreed to be the residencies’ coach but recently she has worked with choreographer Willi Dorner in ‘bodies in urban spaces’. Furthermore, she is fresh out of David Zambrano’s 50 days of flying low and passing through.
The residencies will take place in the three weeks from August 5 – 22nd.
Application is open for individual artists or collaborations based in Iceland.
RPSP supplies: Workspace, publicity, a coach dedicated to the residencies, a fee of ISK 75,000.- per residency (fee and budget), a trip to ANTI Festival (Flight and accommodation)
The RPSP 2010 programme offers three workshops lead by internationally renowned artists with a wide variety of approaches to working in public spaces, free of charge.
Each week residents will receive a rule set created especially for RPSP culminating in a presentation of a public art work performed in Reykjavík. These will then be documented in an online archive.
If you are interested, please supply the following:
- Letter of motivation
- Curriculum Vitae
- 1-3 minute long performance video based on the following conventions:
- Think of Iceland
