Deadline: 31 Mar 2020

There are five studios available. These are usually awarded only once. The studios are designed as autonomous working units. The scholarship holders must be willing and capable of working independently with sculpting materials. In line with the purpose of the Foundation, the marble of Peccia is the main work material, but all other stones and other materials such as wood, metal, plaster, clay, and paper can also be used. There are no assistants or other workers available to help with the projects.

After their stay, the scholarship holders may become members of the Artistic Committee. They are eligible in the awarding of the studios, together with the Artistic Committee members and the jury. As a rule, one former scholarship holder is elected to become a member of the jury.

Professional 3-D artists may apply for a studio scholarship after completion of their studies at a recognized university/academy. Recommended are 1-2 years professional experience and exhibitions of their work. Three-dimensional artists with no formal education may apply if they have been working as artists for at least five years and have exhibited their works publicly (in galleries, art spaces, museums) or have been able to exhibit three of their works in a public space.

Studio Scholarships 2021 Artist Benefits

The scholarship is CHF 1500 per month. The artists will have at their disposal a personal studio, a shared work area with a 20-ton crane and three workshops equipped with all the necessary tools and materials for work with stone (marble), wood, and metal. They will live in individual apartments in the artists’ house which is located in the village centre of Peccia.

The works created in Peccia are subject to a commission of 30%. If an artist is able to sell one of his/her works created in Peccia, 30% of the proceeds will go to the Centro (Artists’ Solidarity Contribution).

About the International Centre for Sculpture

Since the dawn of human history, men and women have shaped everyday objects into special forms. In so doing, they have left behind traces of their own lives and the world of their imagination. All cultures known to us, on any of our continents, have thus created sculptures in which past, present, and future are intertwined in forms of everlasting beauty. They will continue to generate significant expressions of mankind’s own perceptions in the future.

As part of our wholehearted commitment to this tradition, CIS strongly believes in the potential for development that is offered by three-dimensional art. With the aim of promoting the artists working in the field, CIS is committed to the creation of the Centre as a place where this tradition is developed and will be celebrated further in the years to come.

GZ-Basel 2019 – Call For Artists

GZ-Basel 2019 – Call For Artists

GaleriaZero announces a call for artists for GZ-BASEL 2019, an international collective event of contemporary art for artists. This is the 5th edition, to be held 13 – 16 June 2019. Location: An der Messe, Schönaustrasse 10 , 4058 Basel , Switzerland. Curated and organized by GaleriaZero from The Netherlands.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 22 Mar 2019

GaleriaZero is selecting an outstanding selection of painting, photography, installation-art, sculpture, and video. Performance and lecture may form part of the program. With this exhibition, GalleriaZero intends to reach a wide public audience in Basel, offer the opportunity to meet the artists in person, and assist during performances and lectures. This offering of contemporary art is an opportunity for visitors to find affordable art of the highest level. The exhibtion will be open daily from 12 until 22 h.

Theme: no hurry no delay – This theme will not be clear for everyone, but may invite artists to start thinking about what if could mean. The idea to approach reality without hurry, but without allowing any delay, is characteristic of not only the base of the creative process, but also the right attitude for resolving any important matters without losing the sense of life. Our lifestyle is often stressful because of hurry. Other matters do not work because of delay. The harmony of both elements can make things work. “Slow is quick” is a meditative value that translates benefits to the quality of experience and awareness.

For GZ-BASEL 2019, GalleriaZero will select the most innovative contemporary art, ready to transmit their meaning to our senses and convince us again about the beauty and quality of life.

GZ-Basel 2019 Artist Benefits
