The Lucy Art Residency programme offers the opportunity for an artist based in Europe and the Mediterranean whose main practice is photography focused to spend two weeks in June 2017 in Kavala. Τhe selected artist will have the opportunity to live and work in the coastal city in the north of Greece with transportation, accommodation and subsistence covered.
The winner for 2017 is Sylvain Couzinet-Jacques. A second prize was awarded to Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt that have been invited to present their work in Kavala during the final week of the residency program. The winners were selected out of almost 200 applications by a Jury comprised of Kim Knoppers (Curator at FOAM), Shoair Mavlian (Curator at Tate Modern), Sara Dolfi Agostini (advisory member of the photography board of Triennale Museum in Milan), Arsen Kalfayan (co-founder of Kalfayan Galleries)
The goal of this residency is to give the artist two weeks of free time to explore Kavala and the regions around the city. Furthermore the artist will be commissioned to produce one new artwork that will be part of the archive of the residency, accessible to the visitors of the hotel as well as the future residents.
Hope to see you there!
