Program Description:

The e x t a n t a t i o n secondary Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program in Chiang Mai (Thailand) is now open for applications! We are accepting submissions from multidisciplinary, performance, performing, sound and media artists as well as musicians, film-makers and writers whose practice falls within the critical and experimental. Being a place for the extant, the forgotten, the marginalised, the uncategorised, the invisible, and for the ones in-between, we will yield precedence to artists who are in a state of constant flux; who do not belong in well defined categories; Women; trans* (as in gender); queers; activists; people with disabilities; working class; those who are dispossessed, disempowered and displaced.

Being an independent self-funded artist-run organization, it is necessary for us to charge a minimal residency fee to cover our running costs as well as to fund our other residency programs where we support artists who do not have any access to funding. An official letter of invitation will be given to assist the selected artists in funding applications for this project.

The next submission deadline is the 30th of June 2017.

For our secondary AIR program, e x t a n t a t i o n will be providing the following:

- 1 x private bedroom
- 1 x separate studio (if needed)
- a personal bicycle
- an introduction to the Chiang Mai art scene
- airport pick-up from Chiang Mai International Airport

The artists-in-residence will need to cover their own expenses such as but not limited to:

- travel cost to arrive to and depart from Chiang Mai
- living expenses for the duration of the residency
- production costs of the work they develop here
- the residency fee

To apply, please email us directly at extantation (AT) gmail (dot) com with the following:

- artist statement or description / art practice
- links or documentation of works
- proposal for residency
- 3 desired time periods (we accept 1 – 4 week long residencies)
