LKV has 2 studios and 4 small apartments for guest artists. The studios are 4,2 x 6 m, height to ceiling is 3,8 m. Studio and apartment are free of charge for the guests. There are no grants or reimbursements. Artists can apply for a residency of 1 to 3 months. Since 2019 LKV has two apartments for interdisciplinary artists, these apartments do not have a studio, but rather other options depending on the field of the artists (see our separate open call).
Application deadline is March 1st 2020. A group of 3 professional artists from Trondheim (1 of them from LKV) and the manager of Babel, selects the 12 – 16 artists to be invited each year. You will find more information on how to apply on our website: www.lkv.no
All guest artists may apply to have an exhibition at Babel. The gallery is located 200 m away from LKV and is approximately 100 sq m. It is also possible to arrange smaller events in collaboration with Lena Katrine Sokki, the project manager at Babel.
Since 1996, LKV has received approximately 200 artists from 35 different countries working in our residency. See the complete list of artists at our website.
