U-jazdowski Residencies, Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art

(+48 22) 628 12 71-int. 131

Art residencies play an important role in the activity of Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art.

Since 2002, we have continually developed and re-defined our residency programme, sustaining an up-to-date critical reflection on the capacities of residencies as an artistic and instituting practice. We have used our long-standing experience to implement courageous programmes responding to ever-changing relations between creators, organisations and social environment. In the frame of these programmes, the participating artists and curators are able to research and experiment in selected fields.

The programme has hosted over 250 art professionals, curators, artists, researchers, organisers, individuals and collectives representing more than 50 countries from Europe, Asia, North America, South America and Africa.

Residents are selected only on the basis of curatorial invitation and partner institutions&rsquo recommendations which has been positively evaluated by the U-jazdowski Residencies&rsquo team and invited experts. We do not accept direct applications for residency. Open calls are held irregularly and announced on the U&ndashjazdowski website and U&ndashjazdowski Residencies Facebook page.

The Residency Programme is financially supported by the City of Warsaw.

Description of Organisation:

Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art is a public institution that has been supporting, collecting, documenting and presenting Polish and international art since 1985. U&ndashjazdowski is located in a former royal residence, reconstructed to its current shape in the 1980s.

Our mission is to reflect on the world by means of art.
