The Migration Museum is planning an exhibition called Room to Breathe launching at the end of October 2018 and running through Summer 2019. They want to explore the theme of resilience of immigrants through a series of rooms designed to encourage visitor interaction. One of the rooms is a small art studio – (approximately 6 metres x 6 metres) in which they would like to exhibit the work of refugee or migrant artists.
They are working with visual artist Dima Karout as artist/curator in residence for the artist studio. She is collaborating with the Migration Museum to create the art studio concept and its educational and participatory aspects.
They are inviting refugee or migrant artists to apply for the opportunity to work in the art studio for a period of three weeks to one month. Each artist will be invited to make this art studio space his or her own by adding their personal elements. The artist will use the space to display previous work, create new work around the theme of resilience, and then participate in a group show at the end of the main exhibition in July.
Deadline: September 25, 2018
