Summer 2016 c.r.e.t.a rome: International Artist Residencies in Rome, Italy

Immerse yourself in the centuries of art & culture of Rome at c.r.e.t.a. rome!!

The non-profit organization  ‘c.r.e.t.a. rome’ is offering an international self-funded residency program in Rome, Italy. The Italian word for clay seemed perfect to express our commitment to creating an international reference point for ceramics and the arts in the eternal city of Rome. Moreover, taken
as an acronym, it spells out our main activities: ceramics,
residencies, exhibitions, teaching and the arts.  We are located in the
mid 16th-century Palazzo Delfini in the historical center of Rome, just
blocks from the Capitoline Hill on one side and the Pantheon on the
other.
We offer artist residencies for ceramic artists, visual artists and
writers for periods of 5 or 10 weeks. For Summer 2016, the residency
periods are:

  • 27 May- 30 June       
  • 2 July-31 July

The
residency fee covers a semi-private equipped studio, shared housing
(private room) in the historical center of Rome, and technical
assistance in procuring materials, firings, etc., advice on museums,
galleries and sites in Rome and beyond.

Artists
have the opportunity to focus on their art, whether it be creating a
new body of work, expanding a well-established oeuvre or allowing
themselves to draw inspiration from their surroundings and the centuries
of culture that define the eternal city.

In
addition, they will have access to the wealth of galleries and
exhibitions in Rome and beyond. Artists are encouraged to submit a
proposal for a final exhibition to display the work created during the
residency period.

We
also offer a residency in the countryside near Bracciano, with private
accommodation in a 1-bedroom house with a garden and a private studio.
This option is particularly attractive for collaborative projects and/or
ceramic artists who work with reduction firing as well as non-ceramic
artists who prefer a private studio.

A
selection committee composed of artists, art critics and historians
carefully evaluates applicants based on their artistic experience, merit
and project proposal. For more info and costs, contact Lori-Ann
Touchette, cretarome@gmail.com or see our web-site: www.cretarome.com.
