IMMA is excited to announce an open call for an exceptional residency opportunity offering a photographer or a visual artist working with photography, the chance to participate in three unique residencies through one single award.

IMMA, Light Work & What Happens In-Between
A Democracy of Vantage Points

IMMA’s open call will provide institutional support across two established residencies in partnership with the internationally renowned Light Work photography organisation and residency in Syracuse, New York and will incorporate a third peripatetic residency to one or multiple locations through a self-initiated international research journey as proposed by the applicant.

This democracy of vantage points aligns function and vision to make each residency an equally significant part of the overall experience, the amalgamation of two formal residencies with an artist’s journey has exciting and new potential for everyone involved. The motivating principle for this multiple residency award is to offer a unique experience which will open critical avenues for creative and professional resonance, with an aim to support and enhance that which is integral to the selected practice in a timely and relevant context.

IMMA will host an international artist from Light Work as part of this partnership.

Applications will be accepted from 22 May – 17 July 2019.

Want to make an application? Please refer to the application resources supplied below.

Important Note: This Photography Residency Award is made possible through IMMA 1000 which supports IMMA’s work with Irish artists worldwide. On this occasion IMMA will only accept applications from artists resident in Ireland for a minimum of two years (post-undergraduate) or Irish artists living worldwide.
