Pulp Society announces an Open Call for artists and designers across India for its first Residency in Screenprinting.
Pulp Society is a contemporary art gallery and workshop space with a focus on printmaking and experimental works on paper. The Residency provides uninterrupted time to produce a new body of work and a supportive atmosphere for creative growth and development in innovative printmaking techniques. The goal is to generate new ideas, allow artists to take risks by giving them a forum to challenge the stereotypes of printmaking, and explore new methods and techniques while questioning their own practice.
Pulp Society will select two artists/designers for a two-week residency at Pulp Studio in New Delhi. Our team will work with each resident to create a supportive environment and will provide curatorial and production support through their stay.
To apply, please submit the following to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line 'Screenprinting Residency Application 2020':
• 10 images of your past work (no more than 25 MB)
• A brief introduction about you and your work (300 words)
• What you will work on during the residency (300 - 500 words)
