Transart Institute announced that six scholarships of USD 12,000 each are available to students from Eastern Europe and developing countries and four scholarships of 3,000 USD each are available to students from anywhere to participate in the international MFA program.

Scholarships are given on the basis of artistic merit and financial need to artists of all media and genres.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Transart Institute is a student-centered, self-directed MFA program, uniquely located in Europe offering an accredited two year low-residency course for working artists, teachers and all professionals in related fields who are seeking advancement in visual arts and new media. The innovative program consists of three intensive summer residencies with lectures, workshops, critiques, seminars, performances and exhibitions in Europe, two shorter, optional winter residencies in New York and four semesters between residencies in which students create their own course of study realizing individual art and research projects with the support of faculty and self-chosen artist mentors wherever they work and live.

Transart Institute

The Transart MFA program is geared towards development of a sustainable artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or genres, challenging students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Current students work with animation, curating, digital media, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, painting, performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound, text, video, virtual reality.

“Suitcase Series”
 
inviting proposals
http://www.theforest.org.uk/totalkunst
 
TotalKunst is a lively artist-run gallery in the heart of Edinburgh. We are inviting proposals for our ongoing gallery project “Suitcase Series” that plays with notions of distance, space, location, interpretation and interaction.

The work consists of instructions sent to us for altering or otherwise using the gallery space, which we will undertake, set up and interpret according to the parameters set by you. We will produce documentation of this process that will then be sent back to you. We will also cover all publicity for your exhibition.

While we are welcoming all kinds of proposals in all media, due to the location of our gallery in a high traffic area of the city we are particularly suited for work that involves audience participation.

International Fine Arts Colony in Lendava
http://www.lindart-lendava.com
 
The Gallery-Museum Lendava is inviting artists (& art students) who are willing to take risk, experiment and move away from their habitual studio practice.

With the aim of promoting sociability, aiding creativeness, confrontation and acceptability for otherness, and its motto of "co-operation" the platform of the residency was build upon a critical reflection about the nature and character of relations, connecting, and all sorts of collaborations within our modern society. Inspired by the modern technology they're becoming less and less personal in our opinion. That is why our scheme is to gather the selected artist into tandems who'll work during the Colony on a prescribed theme.

The Colony that is open to artists (under the age of 35) from all countries will take place at the castle of the town Lendava; its gallery space and print making studio.
