OASIS 2022

Oasis 2022

French-Portuguese artistic residency

As part of the France-Portugal Season 2022, A4 is an artistic residency project led by the collective Fetart, based in Paris, and Ci.CLO Photography Platform, based in Porto.

A4 brings together 2 artists and 2 curators (2 Portuguese, 2 French).
The call for applications is open to emerging and established artists working with photography and/or video aiming to develop new work in an artistic residency in S. Miguel, Azores. The process is based on collaborative dynamics to reinforce critical thinking and the sharing experiences between everyone involved in the residencies.

2 artists and 2 curators (2 Portugueses, 2 French) have to work around the idea of ‘oasis’ as a psychogeographic territory of regeneration but also as a fragile ecosystem in our planet in crisis.
The residence will be held on the island of S. Miguel, in the Azores; the workplace will be at the Arquipélago — Contemporary Art Center.

The residency collaborative process will be documented in a publication, and the work will be published online. The residency will be publicly presented during the first week of the Rencontres d’Arles.
