Czech artists have the opportunity to take part on a Art Omi project

Artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary are encouraged to send applications for a month-long residency stay in the USA. The project is organized by Art Omi and supported by us, Kunsthalle Praha.

For the selected artist, the residency programme Visegrad Fellowship, taking place in Ghent (state of New York), starts on 18th June and lasts until 14th July 2020. The auditioning process will be administered by Art Omi & Kunsthalle Praha expert committee, with the final results to be published in February 2020.

Art Omi is a cultural NGO founded in 1992. Their artist in residency programmes have already been visited by more than 2000 artists – each summer, Art Omi invites 30 of them from all around the world to create, experiment, share their ideas and make creative connections. One of the main benefits that is granted to the artists is a Visitors Program, that is when a group of prominent curators, critics, gallerists and artists from NYC is invited to visit the residents, give them feedback, network and establish new possibilities.

All of the artists in residency will be provided with accommodation and board in the campus of Art Omi, located within two-hour train ride from New York City.
