Art & Archaeology

International call for projects

*  *  *

Publié le vendredi 21 mars 2014 par Rémi Boivin

Résumé

Under the program NEARCH, two calls for proposals on the theme of art and archeology have just been launched. The aim of the NEARCH project is to explore and strengthen the relationships between European citizens with archeology, particularly through art projects. In this context, the CENTQUATRE in Paris and the JAN VAN EYCK ACADEMIE in Maastricht therefore invite artists from all disciplines who are interested in the link between art and archeology, to apply for residency in their buildings.

Argument

Conducted by the French National Institute for Preventive Archaeological Research (Inrap), the NEARCH project, is a European-wide cooperation network of 14 partners from 10 countries willing to explore the changes in archaeology and heritage and their consequences. More specifically, NEARCH aims to study the different dimensions of public participation in archaeology today and to propose new ways of working and cooperating in a profession strongly concerned by the current economic crisis.

To fulfil that purpose, activities and research are implemented within five main themes: Archaeology for the community: informing and involving people, Archaeology and the imaginary: crossroads between science and art, Archaeology and the knowledge: teaching and sharing information, Archaeology in a changing economy: towards sustainability, and European archaeology and the world: dependencies and mutual development.

Under the theme of archaeology and art, we have just published 2 call for projects for artists in residence in two locations: The CENTQUATRE in Paris and the JAN VAN EYCK ACADEMIE in Maastricht.

The materiality of the invisible is one of the themes the partners of NEARCH aim to explore. This theme offers a hitherto unknown opportunity to research in practice the interaction between artists and archaeologists, to work together in close confines, to profoundly exchange information and to thoroughly question both professions in an age of change and fluctuating cultural attitudes. In 2017, an exhibition and symposium is planned to unveil the outcomes of this process to an international audience of professionals and non-professionals alike. The strating point for this fellowship is the idea that all that is visible expresses what is invisible - be it a photograph, a house, a fragment, a day of life, an artwork, a car in the street. And, similarly, all that is material stresses its immateriality - be it a ruin, a beam of light, a polished surface, a movie, a church. This is the tension of the materiality of the invisible and of the working processes of artists and archaeologists.
