CEC ArtsLink

CEC ArtsLink, founded in 1962, promotes international dialogue and understanding through innovative arts projects. Our programs – ArtsLink Fellowships, ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency, and Art Prospect – encourage collaboration among leading artists and arts managers/curators in the U.S. and 37 countries. We have offices in New York City and St. Petersburg, Russia. Visit our website www.cecartslink.org for more info about our programs.

The ArtsLink Back Apartment Residency program provides opportunities for US and international artists and curators to conduct research, create new work, collaborate with the local arts community, and create special projects in St. Petersburg, Russia. Each residency is individually designed to enable visiting artists and curators to learn about the Russian arts community, develop their own work, and share information about their work and other cultures with local audiences.

The ArtsLink Back Apartment invites artists and curators interested in learning about contemporary art in Russia and building relationships with the local arts community. Though preference is given to artists and curators working in the fields of socially engaged art and public art, artists working in other fields are also welcome to apply.

CEC ArtsLink currently funds residencies by artists and curators from the United States.

Artists from other countries are welcome to apply but will need to seek financial support to cover their expenses. CEC ArtsLink will provide lodging at the residency space and organizational support.

Interested artists and curators can apply by completing the online application by December 15, 2018. Residencies take place between April 1 and December 31, 2019. The residency is closed in August.

The duration of the Residency in St. Petersburg for artists is one month and for curators 10-14 days.

Back Apartment Residency awardees are announced by mid-February.
