Nctm Studio Legale ha avvitato un progetto rivolto all’arte contemporanea dal titolo nctm e l’arte, che propone per la settima volta una borsa di studio rivolta ad artisti visivi italiani, chiamata Artists-in-residence. L’obiettivo è quello di aiutare gli artisti ad aderire a programmi internazionali di residenza qualificati e riconosciuti , in cui avere la possibilità d’inserirsi nel mondo del contemporaneo extra-italiano. La borsa di studio viene data a uno o più artisti per edizione qualora siano già stati selezionati per far parte di residenze a livello internazionale ed abbiano già fissato periodo e modalità della stessa. “L’assegnatario o gli assegnatari saranno scelti secondo criteri di serietà in base al profilo artistico, alla chiarezza e rilevanza dei progetti, alle opportunità formative offerte dalla residenza invitante e alla qualità del progetto eventualmente proposto” (da comunicato stampa).

La scadenza di questa sessione del bando è stata fissata per il 30 giugno 2016, mentre l’esito verrà comunicato entro il 17 luglio 2016.

La valutazione dei curricula e del materiale inviato sarà condotta da una commissione composta dalla responsabile del progetto nctm e l’arte Gabi Scardi, dai membri del Comitato Arte di Nctm Studio Legale Associato e dall’artista Martina Angelotti.  Il valore della borsa di studio, invece, è variabile a seconda della residenza, del progetto presentato, andando, dunque, ad essere valutata volta per volta, portando ad una copertura parziale o totale delle spese richieste dal progetto estero. Alla fine del periodo di studio e ricerca gli artisti selezionati dovranno presentare un dossier descrivente le attività svolte e i progetti realizzati.

La domanda di borsa di studio dovrà essere inviata in formato digitale all’indirizzo artistsinresidence@arte.nctm.it, compresso e corredata di:

  • descrizione del programma all’estero a cui si intende partecipare;
  • documentazione da cui risulti l’accettazione da parte della residenza invitante;
  • indicazione del periodo di residenza;
  • ammontare del budget dei costi totali, con eventuale sottolineatura delle voci per le quali si richiede la borsa di studio;
  • curriculum artistico;
  • portfolio esaustivo;
  • copia di un documento di identità in corso di validità;
  • liberatoria per la privacy.
