ARTIST RESIDENCIES PROGRAMME at CHILOE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
Museum provides areas dedicated exclusively to Artists Residence and workshops, which have been reactivated during 2012, thanks to support given by the National Ministry of Culture and Arts.
Amenities: Boarding House + Workshops.
Equipment: Bedrooms, separate bathroom, kitchen, common spaces and large working places. Basic services, heating and Internet connection.
Price: $18.000 pesos (US$30) per person daily / As MAM is an independent and non-subsidised space, it is not economically possible to finance residences, hostels or expenses related to the experience (materials, cargo, mounting, etc)
Application: Online Form
Open to all discipline artists, through an on-line form in our website. The MAM gives the accepted projects an official invitation letter to support the financial and cultural formalities of the artists.
We offer an isolated place in the middle of the green. Simple architecture. Not noisy, in the city edge between rural and urban. Like if you were renting a room in the woods. A Host person receives you and gives the general instruction. After that sou will have to handle almost everything by yourselves.
Location is in Castro, capital city of the island located right in a middle of it and close to many different attractions that conform the islands heritage exceptional landscape places in the archipelago, cultural heritage ( traditional old wooden houses and world heritage churches, boat construction sites, etc) Traditional festivals and a vibrant community very proud of belonging to the place.
Residency can be taken anytime in the year. If willing to participate in cultural traditional events that happens around the islands, sightseeing and enjoy beaches, best is from December to March. If wanting absolute isolation, rain and deep winter sensation, from May to September is best.
Artist would come to our residence because it is the southern place they will find to do so in the world. It is not a hostel kind and we expect artists to behave like adults. It is a place where you have to control yourself. The surroundings and the whole island traditions and special mythology is very inspiring.
We are a group of passionate for contemporary arts people, who have committed to create this place (and have kept it working for 31 years without any economical reward at all). Our aim is that of the artist being in the right place, at the right time but not necessarily having all what he/she is used to have. The staying here will definitely become a challenge. Maybe the painter will end up writing, or writer singing, who knows?
The Chiloe Museum of Modern Art (MAM Chiloe) exists since 1988 as an independent Art Territory in the Big Island of Chiloe, in the South of Chile. The mission of the Museum is the diffusion of contemporary art in each and every possible manifestation.
