The Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) has placed the 2019-2020 academic under the banner “Language Year: universals and identities” with events organized all year long around language and linguistics. In this context, the University is offering a six-week residency for a visual and/or plastic artist to create a piece for the University, in dialogue with members of the university community and campus life as a whole. Over the course of six weeks, the resident artist will be expected to create an artwork on the theme of language and/or linguistics. The piece will be premiered in the F building (Foyer Culturel) on the Solbosch Campus of the ULB.

Ohme will coordinate to whole process, acting as the main support and interface between the artist and the ULB community.

The ULB is offering a 18.000€ budget and a six-week residency, from February 3, 2020 to March 15, 2020. As an indication, around four weeks will be devoted to the conception of the piece, working closely with linguists and the university community at large, and two weeks to the realization of the designed piece.

Inauguration will take place on Monday March 16, 2020 within the framework of the Bruxelles libre Culture (BLC) festival.

Deadline for application:  January 12, 2020
